LE SERENO

CHECK IN AND CHILL

The Caribbean island of St. Barth is preceded by its reputation: if there is one place in the world you simply have to visit, then this is it. As much as we might like to deny it, it is true. But we can top it: if there is a hotel on St. Barth you simply must stay in, then it can only be Le Sereno. The airy new design of this boutique hotel was created by Paris designer Christian Liaigre to honor one of the most beautiful places Nature has ever created with a clear aesthetic and confident, minimalist concept.

The word “sereno” translates as quiet, calm, serene, and peaceful, all of which perfectly describe a stay in one of the 36 suites or 3 villas. Sleep in a four-poster bed and enjoy a panoramic view from your widow of the idyllic Grand Cul-de-Sac Bay, the private beach, and turquoise water. Permeable sun blades of elegant wood ensure that this Elysium is not relegated to the outdoors at night: the light breezes and occasional sound of the surf will lull you to sleep. And if that is still not enough relaxation for you, then put yourself in the hands of the charming spa staff and enjoy a massage with oils from the island by Ligne St Barth – in the privacy of your own room if you like.

When reclining on the chaise lounges along the pool and the beach, the relaxed beach bistro Menu Plage helps keep your cares away and your blood sugar stable: the delicious salads, sandwiches and burgers go perfectly with a glass of cold rosé. Les Pêcheurs restaurant directly on the beach opens its doors to guests and local alike. Come dine with your toes in the sand from a varied menu that runs the gamut from freshly caught fish to exceptional seafood, from juicy grilled steaks to vegetarian risotto. And on Fridays the head chef offers a bouillabaisse like you’ve never tasted before. Close out the evening in the Le Sereno Bar, cocktail in hand, and ask yourself: Couldn’t life always be like this?
