I had the extraordinary pleasure of enjoying four nights here with my wife on the occasion of our 20th wedding anniversary in June. It was a wonderful experience from the moment we were picked up at the airport to the moment we said our goodbyes. First of all the location: Anse de Flamands is seven minutes from the airport and...

We stayed in a Garden Bungalow because it was the only room available at the time, but I think I would have loved this hotel even more if we had stayed in one of the beach side rooms. Rooms were luxurious and beautiful, although not as large as we had expected. The hotel is on Flamands beach, which is one... More

My wife and I recently returned from a week spent at Cheval Blanc in St Barth for a much needed vacation.

Stayed here in February with a friend. The room was exquisite with every amenity a seasoned traveler could hope for. There was, however, a persistently unpleasant smell of sewage on the walkway to our room. For what they charge this isn't really acceptable. Service could be great and it could be very snooty, just depended on who you were dealing... More

The last time we were here was 11 years ago and we had gone to Isle de France about 4 years in a row. We returned a couple of weeks ago. It is still a lovely hotel. The setting and accommodations are great. Most of the service was very good. Our complaint was that when we set up different restaurants... More

Gorgeous hotel overlooking beach and sea. Superb service, beautiful appointments, everything just right. Great place for honeymoon, destination wedding, or romantic get-away. Even in the summer, breezes off the sea keep it always pleasant.

If you want to try this Hotel because you think LMVH (Louis Vuitton Group) is perfect in everything they do, forget it! This was my 1st visit to St. Barths and I must admit that my expectations were really high, specially after knowing that the island now have a Cheval Blanc, aka the Louis Vuitton Hotel.
