Villa Marie Saint Barth, the 23-room property from French hotelier and interior designer Madame Jocelyne Sibuet, has reopened. The property, which is among the first hotels to reopen following Hurricane Irma, has also unveiled two new villas.
The new, two-bedroom Villa Saline and two-bedroom Villa Colombier have beach views and spacious living rooms that open onto large, outdoor private spaces. Villa Saline has an outdoor Jacuzzi with a covered terrace surrounded by frangipani, hibiscus and other tropical flora, while the interior comes with colonial beds, handcrafted rattan headboards, Copacabana fabrics from French designer Lalie, and handmade leather trunk details. Villa Colombier also has a private swimming pool, canopied beds and a vintage Audoux Minet buffet table.
Villa Marie Saint Barth has 23 individually decorated bungalows and villas, some with private pools, all with sea views or luxury garden views. The architectural style blends Colonial plantation influences and colorful Caribbean flair. Art pieces in the villas were hand-picked by Sibuet.
Guests can dine at the François Plantation Restaurant at the center of the hotel, serving classic French specialties with an island influence by chef Emmanuel Motte. They can also try aselection of rums and Cuban cigars at the hotel bar and lounge in The Garden, or they can relax at the Pure Altitude Spa, offering personalized rituals such as the After-Sun Jasmine repairing treatment or Himalayan Rose regenerating treatment.
