Le Bulletin January 2022

The St. Barth Season Is Underway!

Hello to 2022 – and to you!

We hope your holidays were extra-special. We are pleased to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience and support this past year, and we wish you and yours bonne année. Our team at St. Barth Properties knows how important the ability to travel, share experiences and unwind with family and friends is to you, and we’re eager to facilitate your dream vacation to our beautiful little island. Is there a better place to socially distance than St. Barth? We think not. Come for the hills to hike, the harbor to stroll and the stunning, pristine – and uncrowded – beaches to loll about on. (Note: No masks are needed on a paddleboard or in your private pool.)

We are pleased to hear from so many of our past clients who again want to book a longer stay, and those looking to repeat a workcation. Our restaurants are open and takeaway is varied and abundant, from THE best (and authentic) Thai food to pizzas that rival those in Naples. If you can’t schedule a winter getaway, then you certainly deserve a spring break; let’s make it happen. Low Season prices go into effect on April 16, offering a significant savings and, of course, warm sunny days. Reach out to us via This email address is being protected from spambots.

Cheers to health, happiness, prosperity, and a dream vacation in 2022!

Food, Glorious Food

This season’s “hottest” table is L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon. St. Barth is now home to the Caribbean’s only outpost of this famed restaurant. Overlooking the harbor in Gustavia, guests can watch the preparation of legendary French chef Robuchon’s signature dishes. We’d be happy to reserve you one of the 34 seats at the counter or one of the 20 tables. Wait, there’s more: a glam rooftop lounge where they shake up signature cocktails and offer an outstanding wine list. By the way, they serve breakfast up there, and rumor has it the French toast is to die for. And oh, the view.

Concierge Corner

St. Barth has water sports covered, and our concierge team can get you set up with surfboards (and lessons), bodyboards and skim boards. What’s your pleasure? How about a kayak, or a Hobie Cat or a Jet Ski? For something fun and different, try a Seabob; this electric, almost dolphin-like craft will have you gliding and diving underwater. Rental includes free delivery to the beach of your choice.

“Our Guests Say...”

From one of our guests who enjoyed a recent villa vacation at Villa Sea Breeze:

What a pleasure our visit was this year. As always, the weather cooperated. Sea Breeze was spacious and private and quiet. Our private beach was great for relaxing and enjoying a book. We dined at the usual places like Eddy’s, Santa Fe, Select, Les Bananiers and the ever-popular JOJO Burgers (since it was in the neighborhood). We especially enjoyed L’il Rock. All the beaches were fantastic. Our favorite was spending time hanging out at the bar at Pearl Beach. Looking forward to returning to Sea Breeze in the future. Our warmest thanks to the staff at your island office. They were most helpful guiding us thru the requirements necessary to travel home.

Howard, Oak Forest, IL  

What say you? We’d love to hear about your favorite beach, restaurant or island experience. And if you have photos you’d like to share – even better!
