Luxury Holidays in St. Barts in the Caribbean with Only Exclusive Travel

St. Barts, or Saint Barthélemy to be exact, is the ultimate in celeb holiday hang-outs. Attracting an über rich, über famous crowd, you can bathe in the same waters as Beyoncé, tread the same sands as Paul Mccartney, ride the same tides as Jon Bon Jovi or relax in a yacht as Renée Zellwegger did. Perfect for couples and families alike, St. Barts is a fashionable holiday destination.

Christopher Columbus, the first European to discover the island, named the land after his brother Bartolomeo. With this familial essence even present in the name of the island, it is no wonder that the locals have a friendly and welcoming disposition, whilst also affording a level of privacy you’d expect from such an exclusive holiday destination. St. Barts itself is considered one of the oldest volcanic islands in existence; it is an arid, volcanic rock of just eight square miles that is home to an eclectic mix of iguanas, night-blooming cacti, and fabulous beaches as well as luxury yachts, designer boutiques, and diverse restaurants. The aloe vera, cacti and other luscious flora adorning the terrain, the turtle doves, flittering hummingbirds, fleeting ghost crabs, wise old land and sea turtles, pelicans (the mascot of the island) and colourful marine life create a serene ambience to your luxury holiday in the Caribbean.

Listen to the rhythms of calypso, meringue, soca, zouk and reggae beats strolling out of nearby sound systems at one of the many cultural festivals of the island, including the Fête De La Musique. Or for something a little quieter, the regular book and film festivals host joyful celebrations of all things cultural. The local custom for celebrations is to drink a shot of rum, a baked galette (traditional bread) or a sweet potato pudding while accordions, tambourines, and maracas play, and the neighbourhood dances wearing hand-made straw hats and jewellery.

Imagine your ideal luxury St. Barts resort, and it cannot be dissimilar to the Hotel Le Toiny. It is only a stone’s throw away from the island’s most popular surfing beach, hiking destinations and glamorous yet unobtrusive nightlife options and scuba diving hot-spots. Visit the fantastic array of restaurants showcasing Asian, Creole, European, fusion and other international menus and return to your affluent and luxurious accommodation.

Weather

There are two varieties of weather that result from St. Barts' location on the surface of the planet: amazing days of sunshine, and the odd hurricane / rain-spell. Most of the year, puffy white clouds parade through a clear blue sky and a warm balmy breeze soothes the gentle heat of the sun. It's a T-shirt, shorts and sandals kind of weather, interrupted now and then by a brief tropical shower. From July to November, however, this halcyon state of affairs may be interrupted by a revolving tropical storm, which, in its mature form, is known as a hurricane.

Activities

This is the holiday destination for those who like to get up and try something a little bit different and memorable, whilst also spending time on that must-needed beach relaxation and bronzing time. Get to know the exotic wildlife that flutters around the skies, wriggles along the plantations, and hops between the trees whilst on a trek, or go to school with the fish whilst learning to scuba dive. A luxury holiday in St. Barts cannot leave you lost for things to do.

Countryside & Wildlife

Countryside & Wildlife

The sheer beauty and variety of the landscapes in St. Barts is surprising, with long beaches of fine white sand, infinite shades of blue in natural coves, craggy cliffs that shimmer in the sun, savannas shaded by latanier palms, salt flats that reflect the color of the sky… Emerald green and black iguanas, amphibians like the brilliant red poison-dart frogs, smiling crocodiles and slithering snakes as well as beautiful fluttering butterflies will enchant you.

Watersports

Watersports

Several rental agencies and a few private boat-owners offer you outings with a crew, for a day or a half-day or more, for the ultimate in relaxing sailing experiences. Sail into the sunset, snorkle with provided equipment and admire the multicolored wildlife that busies away while you swim. Or, bathe in the sun while the boat is gently rocking you into a dream-like daze.

Trekking

Trekking

Provided that you choose heavy-sole shoes, wear a hat and sun-screen and take a bottle of water, hiking will help you discover St. Barts in a more personal way. The most famous path will take you from Petite Anse to the stunning bay of Colombier in fifteen minutes walk. Become educated about the diverse vegetation that occupies the land, including bonzaïs, tough tiny trees leaning away from many years of strong gusts of wind. The dry forest shelters botanical treasures, orchids, rare cactuses, beds of white lilies; just a selection of the flora you can encounter whilst trekking in St Lucia.

Underwater Activities

Underwater Activities

The pleasures of underwater observation are magical. Snorkell or scuba dive to see the branch corals that have been recovered from the last hurricanes, and the massive corals that are in full bloom, with multicolored coral fish going about their daily business as you swim amongst them. Each bay has a reef to be explored, each islet has its walls and caves.

Fishing

Fishing

Everybody owns a boat of some kind in St. Barts, and most are used for fishing. There are twenty or so professional fishermen who provide the local restaurants with fresh lobster, fish and conchs... Delicious! Big game fishing provides amateurs with exciting days in the open sea: catches are frequen,t and some are huge! From May to September, you can measure yourself against the blue or white marlin when, strapped in your fighting seat, you'll have succeeded in taming it, the practise is to release it after tagging. Or, if you're lucky, cast your eyes upon a bull-nosed dolphin which abounds the seas in certain months of the year. All year around you can see wahoo, tuna, and barracuda waiting for your bait.

Shopping

Shopping

St. Barts is a duty free port, and shoppers will be delighted with the range and number of shops: You will find the elegant displays and marble floors, a yellow-brick-road to the most haute-couture brands you could possibly wish to purchase, such as Hèrmes, Louis Vuitton, Chopard, Bulgari and Cartier to name a few. Jewellery, summery clothing, accessories, cosmetics and much more available, if you can't find what you're looking for, there'll be something better on display.

 

Nightlife

Some restaurants have an independent cocktail bar, such as Nikki Beach. They have a lively ambiance and live entertainment going on untill midnight or slightly later during the high season. La Plage, the Yacht Club with its live screen concerts, on Gustavia Harbor, Casa Nikki and Le Feeling offer the best in boozey nighttime drinks, ear-pumping disco music, a dance floor and a thriving crowd. During the music and film festivals, there is something unique going on every night, and there can even be fireworks in celebration of some public or private event. The most popular nighttime experience on St. Barts remains the same: comfortable and leisurely dining in style.
