Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France SAINT BARTHS
With sugary sand leading down to the clear blue sea, Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France has won many loyal fans since its recent makeover
by LVMH. The luxury-goods conglomerate added this jewel of a destination to its new travel portfolio (a faultless trinity of hotels, in Saint Barths, the Maldives and Courchevel), and has preserved everything that was already perfect here, so that it remains serene yet chic. But the lightest touch of additional luxury has been sprinkled over the venue – pale-pink fluffy beach towels; subtle French linens; supremely
stylish bathrooms – along with a very good Guerlain spa.
From about £555 a room a night (www.stbarthisledefrance.chevalblanc.com).
