Le Sereno - Grand Cul De Sac
A reef out to sea means the Grand Cul De Sac resembles a giant swimming pool when the light hits right, and the shallow waters glow bright blue. Located right on St Barts’ longest beach, Le Sereno is well-known in luxury circles, due in part to its sister hotel in Lake Como. The lagoon, brimming with tropical fish and coral, sits right in front of this hotel, designed by late French interior designer Christian Liaigre. Each of Le Sereno’s rooms aims to make you feel calm – white interiors are interrupted by carefully placed jolts of colour. Expect pre-loaded iPods in rooms, chocolates on your pillow, villas with butler service, an indoor/outdoor spa, and fine dining. Divine.
