Le Bulletin December 2020

Wishing you the best for a Happy and Healthy New Year


I hope these holidays find you and yours safe and well and enjoying the season, albeit a very different one this year. We have some exciting news to start the year. The 2021 Condé Nast Traveler Gold List is just out and named St. Barth as one of the eight “Best Destinations” in the world. We’re as pleased as Ti Punch, and of course, we agree! One of the editors who chose our little French island did so for its grand romance quotient. Dreaming about warm, starry, starry nights, the sound of the surf, and afternoons spent leisurely sipping chilled rosé with your toes in white-sugar sand?

Although our 2021 bookings include requests for that quintessential romantic getaway, these days, many are booking longer stays and planning “workcations.” As many jobs and schools are likely to remain virtual through the coming winter, this concept is growing in popularity. A number of our villas have private offices or office areas, and many of the air-conditioned bedrooms have desks equipped to plug in a laptop and ZOOM. How perfect for kids! They can end their school day with a swim in the pool. Perhaps you’d enjoy working from a poolside gazebo? Another day in paradise, indeed. Wherever you are celebrating the holidays, we hope they find you well, safe, and happy. We are sending warm wishes to you for 2021 and hope to see you on the island in the coming year.

Its spacious yet intimate bedroom has an en suite bath with a shower pour deux. Cliffside in Pointe Milou, it offers exceptional privacy, the sound of the breaking surf, and a stunning view of the Caribbean Sea. Early risers can toast the sunrise with an espresso and start the day by swimming a few laps in the heated pool before “getting down to business.” BelAmour has an office. End the day with sunset cocktails. A compact, well-equipped kitchen makes meal prep easy-breezy, and your patio table showcasing that view is always at the ready.

Island News

All the festive days, inclusive of Christmas & New Year’s Eve and Day, encompass St. Barth’s signature season – complete with stargazing. All those stunning mega yachts are in the harbor, lights are twinkling, Champagne corks are popping, and, yes, there are fireworks. We’re delighted to report that November’s arrivals tallied at 2019 levels, and December is even busier than some years past. Overall, we’re seeing a trend toward longer stays as many visitors seek a safe harbor – literally and figuratively.

Food, Glorious Food

The number and variety of restaurants on our little island would delight any foodie worth their salt, and every year there are new dining experiences to try. La Petite Plage has just hoisted their sign at the Instagram-worthy harbor side venue (formerly Victoria’s). With that view and an intriguing apps menu, it’s just the spot for a sunset cocktail – and a “little something.”

After a hike or an afternoon at the beach, you may want a more laid-back dining experience, but every vacation deserves a few special nights. Do consider Fouquet’s in the newly launched Le Carl Gustaf Hotel. The hotel is justly proud of this Caribbean “outpost” of the Michelin-starred Fouquet’s in Paris. Under the direction of the world-famous Chef Pierre Gagnaire, the menu offers exciting riffs on classic French dishes, with a nod to Caribbean influences – and of course, includes our freshly caught fish. The view of the harbor is magnificent! Our concierge would be pleased to make a reservation for you. Fouquet’s is also open for breakfast and lunch. Bon appétit!

“Our Guests Say...”

From one of our guests who enjoyed a recent November villa vacation at Villa Golden View:

Villa Golden View is an outstanding property. What a view! We used the concierge services quite a bit. Laura was wonderful and very responsive. Our favorite meal was at Fouquet’s in the new Carl Gustaf Hotel, and we had a great time at Nikki Beach. Shellona and Le Barthélemy were quite nice too. We took advantage of the relationship with the Manapany and had a nice lunch and some beach time there. The half-day sail we did was perfect – and fun! Also, we were very happy with the choice to go through Puerto Rico on Tradewind; it made things very easy.

A.A. Philadelphia, PA Guest at Villa Golden View

What say you? We’d love to hear about your favorite beach, restaurant or island experience. And if you have photos you’d like to share – even better!
