The fun begins February 21 as Gurney’s Resorts—which has properties in Montauk, NY and Newport, RI—heads south to the French West Indies, bringing its Hamptons style to swanky St. Barths at Le Barthelemy Hotel & Spa. Guests of Le Barthelemy will receive and have access to a curated selection of Hamptons-inspired goodies (think: complimentary bites and beverages like a signature lobster roll and Hamptons Spritz; restorative beachfront yoga; a Gurney’s-esque DJ’d pool party and a rendition of The Beach Club at Gurney’s). Guests will also receive a tote filled with little gifts and co-branded apparel.
Marc Dobbels, managing director at Le Barthelemy Hotel & Spa, tells Luxury Travel Advisors, that there’s a synergy between Montauk and St. Barth’s for the luxury traveler and the hotels share a similar brand identity. With alternating peak seasons and easy access air access into each, the destinations made sense for the alternating takeovers. Additionally, each destination is popular among those searching for sunshine mixed with exclusivity, nightlife and cuisine.
The party doesn’t stop there, though. Le Barthelemy will head to long island July 10 and 11, bringing its French influence to the Hamptons at Gurney’s Montauk and The Beach Club. Guests can expect St. Barth’s-decked out cabanas, island-inspired coconut ceviche and rosé (of course), island-style yoga flow, Hermès amenities and a beach tote.
