A week in St. Barth's with Le Sereno

Last week, I visited one of the most exclusive islands in the world, Saint Barthélemy. I had the most amazing stay at, Le Sereno St. Barth's. Le Sereno is is an intimate St. Barth's beach hotel and spa with just 36 suites and three, large four-bedroom Villas. Inspired by the island’s magical contradiction of luxury and simplicity, renowned Parisian designer Christian Liaigre has helped Le Sereno earn its reputation as the most stylish and private sanctuary among a select group of St. Barth's hotels.   

Located on the beach at Grand Cul de Sac and spanning 600 feet of pristine shoreline, Le Sereno is one of only a handful of St. Barthélemy hotels that can claim a beachfront location. The beach is basally a private beach to the hotel. Le Sereno has a beach front gourmet restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, a bar and lounge, and 24 hour room service. Le Sereno also offers a beachfront fresh water swimming pool (which I absolutely loved), a lovely spa, water sports equipment, a fitness center, and private airport transpiration. 

You really have nothing to worry about when you vacation at Le Sereno. Le Sereno is so exclusive, they recently hosted all of the Victoria's Secret Angels for Victoria's Secret's first ever T-V Swim Special

I stayed in a one bedroom Grand Suite Plage room, which I would actually consider a suite. From the living room, you can step onto the sun deck, which overlooks the sparkling turquoise ocean. The sun deck has a private terrace, which I definitely utilized during my stay. The room included a King size bed, and furnishings by Christian Liaigre.

Luckily, the weather was perfect while I was in St. Barth's. I spent a lot of time at Le Sereno's private beach and pool.

On my second day, I decided to rent a Jeep. I like to explore islands on my own time, instead of being dependent on cabs. You are so limited with where you can venture off to with cabs. Plus, I like to pull over and take photos. Le Sereno partnered up with Hertz, making it super easy for guests to rent cars. They even offer special package rates for a room including a rental car. I rented this Jeep Wrangler because I like to be up high when I drive, and I also like to feel like Indiana Jones! 

Driving to the main town and capital of Saint Barthélemy, Gustavia, was so much fun and definitely an adventure. I drove to Gustavia everyday, sometimes twice a day. I know the roads and back roads so well, I honestly feel like a local now.

I've always wanted to visit Eden Rock St. Barth's, and I finally got the opportunity to on this trip. I love the Eden Rock, and it is actually on the way to the town of Gustavia. I enjoyed a late lunch, and a lot of sun on their beach. The food is so delicious, and the gift shop offers really great contemporary brands. I highly recommend stopping by the Eden Rock St. Barth's If you are visiting the island.

I stopped and took a few photos in front of the beautiful Church of Our Lady of the Assumption, Gustavia. This historic church was built in the nineteenth century, and is such a magical site to see in St. Barth's. Everything in the town of Gustavia is within walking distance. This is very convenient for those who want to shop, eat, and take pictures.

I am really looking forward to staying at Le Sereno again next year! I hope I've encouraged you guys to explore Saint Barthélemy, and booking your stay stay with Le Sereno is for sure the way to go for the ultimate St. Barth's experience. It will be a a vacation that you will never forget!
