Once we had collected our bags and cleared the very short line at customs (there were only 8 people on our flight), we were excited to get to the first luxury resort that we would be staying at during this trip, Le Sereno. One of the perks of this property is there free transfer from the airport to their property. Although there was a minor hiccup in getting picked up and needing to have someone call the driver for us, an issue more caused by the “Caribbean time” experienced with the flight schedule than with Le Sereno itself, we were very happy with the level of service provided by the driver and the clean and cool environment of the vehicle… air-conditioning was very much appreciated in the 30°C+ heat and lack of air-conditioning on the small island hopper flight over to the island.
We arrived at Le Sereno in no time as almost everywhere on a 25 sq. kilometer island is relatively close . The atmosphere at Le Sereno, mainly due to it’s location but also due to the fact that we were there in low season, was peaceful and made for relaxing. The neighbourhood immediately around the property is somewhat secluded from the rest of the island as it sits in a small cove on the east side of the island.
Le Sereno was designed by well-known Parisian designer Christian Liaigre, and the elegance and lushness of the property strikes you as soon as you step foot into the reception area. This is truly an island resort as the reception area is open on both sides and walking into the room you are immediately drawn to the view as the reception sits above the property providing a wonderful eyeful of the relaxation that awaits…
The reception staff were friendly and made us feel immediately as treasured guests. After checking in, they provided a small tour of the property including the pool, beach area, water activity equipment (free to use), gym area, spa, and restaurant:
Oh, did I mention that Le Sereno also has a resident cat? Meet “Cookie” who roams the property as if surveying her kingdom. She is very friendly and loves to visit with the guests…
