In my last post, I featured pictures of the gorgeous property that surrounds Le Sereno. If you missed it, you can find it here. Let’s face it though, when you are travelling to a Caribbean destination, especially a lush island such as St. Barts, the property and the surrounding beach are important, but you know that you really want your room to be a relaxing, comforting and luxurious haven to return to after a long day of fun in the sun. Le Sereno does not disappoint. Their rooms feature a beautiful combination of fine wood with crisp white walls with furniture designed by Christian Liaigre with bout 80% of their rooms featuring views of the ocean. In total there are only 36 suites and 3 villas at Le Sereno which, by default, makes you feel that you are in an exclusive resort where you are truly catered with a personal touch by the staff.
Grande Suite Plage Sud
We stayed in their most popular category of rooms, Grande Suite Plage Sud. This beachfront suite had gorgeous ocean views and it very easy to see why this category is their most popular, and also why they decided to invest heavily in the Grand Suite Plage Sud and have this category make up about two-thirds of all their rooms at Le Sereno.
Let me get right to the best feature of this room – THE BED! Wow, was it ever comfortable and it honestly provided the best sleeps I have had in a property in a very long time.
As you can see in the pictures above, it is a four-post bed with mosquito netting that is untied by the turn-down service every night. There are mosquitoes in St. Barts, but honestly, they were no more annoying than the ones here in North America. The mattress was just the right firmness and the sheets were crisp and clean every night. Just a fantastic bed.
The rest of the main room was very well laid out, including a plush white sitting chair, a good sized couch (I feel that this could have been a little more comfortable) with coffee table, and a desk. Here is the main room:
At the far end of our room there was a large sliding door that o[pened up to a private patio with an expansive view of the ocean and two beach lounge chairs. This was the perfect spot to relax in private while taking in the sun.
The bathroom in the Grande Suite Plage Sud is extremely spacious and the layout is wonderful. You have a large soaker tub with a separated shower stall. The floor is a dark wood that allows any water that makes it to the floor to be easily drained. The amenities in the bathroom are De Luxe Ginger by Ex Voto Paris. Here is a look at the bathroom:
One added little bonus for us, which is offered to our Virtuoso clients was the welcome bottle of champagne that was waiting for us in our room upon our arrival:
Overall, the Grande Suite Plage Sud proved to be the perfect accommodations, with the large size of the main room, bathroom, and private ocean view deck, this room at no time had us wishing for anything extra. It was all here. We would definitely recommend this room when staying at Le Sereno.
