Perhaps the most well-known hotel is the Eden Roc and if your budget stretches to the exclusive Greta Garbot Suite with its private terraces, mosaic floors and old-school glamour, you won’t be disappointed. For the utmost in service and ultra-luxury, try the all-villa Le Toiny hotel and wake up to having breakfast served on your terrace next to your private pool. It is also home to one of the island’s best restaurants (Le Gaïac) and foodies will love the quality and diversity of food on offer. St Barts is well known for its passion for fine dining with French and Creole cuisine as its specialty. Spend your days on secluded beaches, surfing the Atlantic or swimming in the serene, calm waters of the Caribbean. There are over 20 to choose from. After a day on the beach and an evening watching the sunset over fine wine & fresh fish, it’s time to join the glitterati and dance until the sun comes up.

When to Go

St Barts has a tropical climate which means its summers (August-November) can see a lot of rain falling in sharp afternoon showers. December is very busy with prices at a premium and a need to book 6 months in advance. January to April is very hot and a great time to visit but prices are high especially during boating week in March. You’ll find the best room rates for your St. Barts honeymoon from April to mid November with May and June a great option for warm weather and lower prices.
