While in St. Barts we had the immense pleasure of staying at Cheval Blanc, situated on beautiful Flamands Bay. This gorgeous and luxurious resort is truly a slice of paradise as the location provides a natural intimacy, while the elegant styling of the resort coupled with the personalized and professional service of its’ staff make you feel as if you have found your own private piece of the island.
The property only has 40 wonderfully appointed rooms, ranging from secluded Garden Rooms all the way to 3-bedroom Villas (I will provide a more detailed breakdown on the room types available in my blog on our room), this limited number of rooms provides you with a guaranteed of having the relaxing and luxurious experience you are dreaming of on St. Barts. The entire property – from the Gardens located on the main section of the property, to the main buildings, the pool, and even the beach area – is so wonderfully appointed down to the finest details. Cheval Blanc has also done a marvelous job in combining the calming colours of their brand with the natural colours of the island, that you can’t help but feel relaxed as you absorb the finest elements that the sun, beach, and property have to offer.
Here is a visual tour around the property, including the gardens and the beach on Flamands Bay (oh, and a little wildlife – and not so wild life at the end…).
We start with the entrance, with the reception and concierge areas at the top of the stairs:
As you walk through the center of the main building, you are mesmerized by the beauty of the property and the natural wonders of St. Barts in the background:
Aside from the beautiful and welcoming ocean, Cheval Blanc also boasts some stunning gardens throughout its’ property:
And now for the wildlife…
When we were leaving our room in the morning, we were greeted by a family wild goats:
As with most tropical destinations, these little guys were common sights scampering around:
…and the not-so-wildlife, their resident property cat… Easter!
The property at Cheval Blanc is stunning and definitely an experience that we would recommend to any of our clients seeking a luxurious island paradise getaway. The rooms are just as remarkable, and our room in the Garden Bungalow will be featured in my next blog post.
