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.
