GRAND CUL-DE-SAC. Grand Cul-de-Sac is a quartier (or district) of Saint Barthélemy, located in the northeastern region of the island. The beach here is quieter and less congested than other beaches on St. Barths, and was called “one of the sweetest beaches on the island,” by Vanity Fair. Because of the protection provided by a coral reef, the bay in Grand Cul-de-Sac is especially welcoming. The water is relatively shallow, warm and calm, and tropical fish and turtles swim alongside the islanders and visitors. Paddleboarders, windsurfers and swimmers often populate the bay, taking advantage of its serenity.
In addition to the multimillion-dollar homes nestled around the bay, there is also a collection of fine hotels and restaurants. The boutique Hotel Les Ondines offers an intimate setting for a select few travelers, while the Hotel Le Sereno caters to the top tier of the jet-set. A 5-star luxury resort designed by renowned French designer Christian Liaigre (called, “possibly the most important – certainly the most copied – designer of our time,” by the Financial Times), Le Sereno is a member hotel of The Leading Hotels of the World, Ltd. (in addition to it luxurious guestrooms, the hotel also offers Villas, currently priced at a minimum of €4,447 per night).
Also in the Grand Cul-de-Sac, yet set back upon the hillside, is the Hotel Guanahani and Spa. With 36 suites, 31 rooms, two esteemed restaurants and exceptional amenities and service, locals and visitors alike have been heaping praise upon this luxurious resort for years (2016 marks the resort’s 30th anniversary – and the completion of a $40 million renovation).
SAINT BARTHÉLEMY. Discovered in 1493 by Christopher Columbus and named after his brother, Saint-Barthélemy (also called “St. Barths,” or “St. Barts”) is a Caribbean island encircled by shallow reefs. After a long history as a French commune, the island voted to secede in 2003 to form a separate overseas collectivity of its mother country, and is represented in Paris by a senator. The capital city of Gustavia is the heart of the island, with famously luxurious shops, churches and museums celebrating the French and Swedish heritage of the native populace.
Film, music and French cultural events are held throughout the year on St. Barths, but the majority of the festivals occur during the winter High Season, when the very famous and very wealthy converge on the island to celebrate the holidays. Yachts up to 550 ft in length swarm Gustavia’s harbor for New Year’s Eve, with shuttles running to and from shore. The party’s hosts (who are typically some of music, fashion and film’s most recognizable names) love to celebrate the start of a new year here, while locals and “normal” visitors alike engage in the accepted local pastime of party crashing.
Despite its collection of ritzy visitors, the general atmosphere on the island is not one of exclusivity. Mulit-millionaires and deck hands alike walk the quaint streets in flip flops and shorts. And perhaps the best part of St. Barths – its 22 gorgeous white sand beaches – are open to the public. Even if the exclusive Eden Rock Hotel is out of reach, Forbes Magazine notes that, “the island makes everyone feel like a billionaire.”
The island is also known for its collection of luxurious resorts and fine restaurants, both of which emphasize world class service and amenities within a laid-back atmosphere and island chic setting.
Special Tax Savings
