Le Barthélemy Hotel & Spa in St. Barth's, which originally debuted October 28, 2016, announced that following the June 1 opening of its adjoining two villas, it will completely reopen with a full spa, restaurant and new hotel services beginning October 28, 2018.
Taking care to replicate the interiors of the original St. Barth's-inspired design, Le Spa has been updated with the addition of hot and cold baths, sauna and soothing hammam and a tea salon. Additional wellness options include hydrotherapy treatments, beach yoga and a fitness center with new equipment.
The soon-to-be-relaunched hotel is also changing its culinary experiences, with the hotel’s main restaurant Aux Amis now expanding its service beyond the restaurant during lunch so that guests can keep relaxing at the beach. At dinner, Aux Amis will introduce a new concept that offers French fine dining in a casual, island-inspired setting. The restaurant has an expanded wine list, with a “by the glass” selection, complementing a new menu of fresh dishes such as Mahi-mahi with Dugléré sauce and crushed potatoes, along with Caribbean chocolate soufflé for dessert.
For guests who like to socialize, Le Barthélemy created a late-night rooftop bar with a DJ or live music Friday and Saturday nights, a beach grill for all day light fare, and water sports, such as swimming with the turtles in the nature’s reserve, and boat outings—setting sail right in front of the hotel.
All rooms at the hotel have been upgraded with a new pillow menu for a customized rest, a new signature scent that envelopes guests throughout the open-air property, and a lighting system with four distinct settings to set the mood. The hotel also reimagined select adjoining rooms to accommodate larger families and groups of friends. These rooms can be transformed into a one, two or three-bedroom Suite.
For those who wish to visit the island before the anticipated October 28 reopening date, they can book the Villas at Le Barthélemy. Located steps to the beach and adjacent to the hotel, two six-bedroom villas provide several living areas, gourmet kitchen and lap pool. Guests of these villas will also have access to the services of Le Barthélemy.
