The Caribbean island of St. Barth lies in the French West Indies near St. Maarten. This little outpost of France, colonized in the 17th century, possesses a gentle way of life and rich heritage. Known for its pure white-sand beaches, exceptional gastronomy and fashionable boutiques, the isle offers an unprecedented blend of relaxed glamour, social activity and privacy.

Situated towards the northern end of the chain of islands that make up the Lesser Antilles, St. Barth was named by Christopher Columbus in 1493 after his brother, Bartolomeo, and is considered by many to be the most beautiful island in the Caribbean. The go-to destination for luxury travel in the West Indies, this nine-square-mile island offers visitors 14 pristine white-sand beaches, a heavenly average temperature in summer, and an environment as peaceful, welcoming and private as it is beautiful.

When it comes to shopping, St. Barth is on the cutting edge, keeping up with the latest trends from Europe in fashion and art. The duty-free island overflows with luxury fashion, jewelry, apothecary and home décor boutiques; alongside shops filled with the most coveted brands, are wares from local artisans and designers.

Much like in France, gastronomy is one of St. Barth’s greatest passions; the island’s restaurants are a draw for visitors and locals alike. Culinary and performing art festivals punctuate island life throughout each calendar year, as do sailing regattas and other sports tournaments. And, for those who like to hit the town, St. Barth provides nightlife like few others with a variety of bars and clubs to choose from. Whether enjoying dinner, music or a party on the beach with friends, a night in St. Barth is always magical.

Le Guanahani

Originally opened in 1986 and expanded in 1991, Le Guanahani has established itself as a haven of casual luxury, comfort and elegance. An authentic reflection of St. Barth, the hotel has evolved into a fine destination for active travelers, providing an unsurpassed array of leisure activities. In 2004, Le Guanahani added an indulgent Spa by Clarins, and it has continued to refine the guest experience through a series of extensive and thoughtful interior design updates over the past few years.
