Le Bulletin - May 2015


Villa Zen Nirvana

The 2015 High Season concluded on April 15, and what a great season it was! We were pleased to welcome back our regular clients and delighted to introduce our beautiful little island to so many new visitors. I’m back on Cape Cod for some family time with a round of weddings and graduations. This is such a busy time of year. But I’m already looking forward to returning at the end of the month. Why don’t you think about it, too?  Value Season rates – and that means rates that are 30% lower – will be in effect through December 14. Ladies, don’t forget the annual sales are on and will continue to June 13. Divide your days between the beaches and the boutiques – fun! Villa or hotel?

Merci to all our U.S. and island staff, our island partners and all our clients for a wonderful season.

I hope to see you on the island!

Hotels of St. Barth

As many of you know, we’ve been hosting a weekly in-season cocktail party and love the opportunity to greet longtime and brand-new clients. Tom Beach's Restaurant La Plage has been our venue for the past few seasons, and it’s been great fun. However, due to the benefit of a wonderful invitation from Hotel Le Toiny, SBP staff and clients gathered at its renowned restaurant Le Gaïac on April 22.

The evening was made extra special by their creating a prix fixe dinner menu for us to be enjoyed poolside. We were delighted that so many availed themselves of the offer including SBP’s president, Peg Walsh, and her husband Steve. Read more about the cocktail party in Peg's Blog.

Peg wants to make sure everyone knows about the hotel’s A Taste of Le Toiny lunch special, which includes a welcome cocktail (a Bellini), a three-course menu and a poolside lounge chair for €39 per person. The lunch special is offered daily except for Sundays, when they serve up their bountiful brunch – another can’t-miss.

Pay 3 stay 4 !
Book a four night stay at the 5 Star Hotel Taïwana on spectacular Flamands Beach and the fourth night will be complimentary. Valid on all room categories during May, June, July and August. Contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

SBP News

A Blissful St. Barth Wedding – Our Villa & Hotel Specialist Julie Nally was delighted to share delicious details of her clients’ May 2 St. Barth beachfront wedding. Julie enlisted the expertise of Magda Votava, SBP’s on-island matrimony maven, to plan a very special few days for the happy couple and their 100+ guests.

A picnic on Saline Beach the afternoon preceding the wedding and the rehearsal party at Shell Beach’s Dõ Brazil were huge hits. The wedding and the reception were held at the Tom Beach Hotel’s La Plage Restaurant. Some guests opted for a villa stay, and others chose among the island’s gorgeous hotels. Félicitations to the happy couple, who honeymooned at the lovely Villa Rêve de Nuit.

Many on our team love to share their island experiences. We hope you enjoy Connie Walsh’s trip report about her late-March visit.
