Full accommodation information

Cheval Blanc is the only property outside of mainland France to receive the prestigious ‘Palace Status’, recognising its superiority even over top five-star resorts.

With an enviable location on Flamands Beach and boasting lush tropical gardens from famed landscaper Madison Cox, the traditional Maison is surrounded by natural beauty.

Dining is a focal point of the resort, with La Case restaurant overlooking the stunning Baie des Flamands and offering a wide variety of French fusion dishes from renowned Executive Chef, Yann Vinsot. La Cabane is nestled right on the beach and serves fresh, light dishes for lunch, while the White Bar is an alfresco locale serving handcrafted beverages alongside entertaining weekly fashion shows.

The Cheval Blanc Spa is nestled within the picturesque gardens and comprises four treatment rooms and a garden pavilion, an oasis in which you can indulge both body and mind with exclusive Guerlain rituals. A state-of-the-art fitness centre offers the latest equipment and one-to-one personal training sessions.

The dedicated resort Alchemists are on hand to ensure that you have the very best stay possible, composing bespoke programmes and activities according to your preferences – including wellness workshops, photoshoots, island excursions, fishing and diving sessions, boat trips and more!

For little ones, the newly unveiled Le Carrousel kids’ club offers games, activities and island-inspired experiences, ensuring that your luxury St Barths holiday is memorable for the entire family.

A selection of 61 truly luxurious rooms, bungalows, suites and villas each combine beautifully understated interiors with ultra-modern amenities.
