It’s almost Caribbean season. Azure waters and sugar-sand beaches are working their way into our daydreams, and, with city-chic Le Sereno‘s announcement of their new, James Beard award-winning-chef-run restaurant, refined St Barths just might be the first stop on this year’s jaunts…
Style Continental Caribbean
Setting Grand Cul-de-Sac cove
Why this week? Le Sereno just re-opened last week for the new season and simultaneously launched their brand new restaurant, Le Sereno Restaurant. Husband-wife team Jonas and Alexandra Millan, also behind Miami’s James Beard award-winning Juvia restaurant, bring Japanese and French flavours and techniques to local seafood and classic tropical ingredients, all served in an elegant beachfront setting. Additionally, the hotel has just announced the spa’s soothing aquatic massage, the first on St Barths.
Our favourite bits… Much as we appreciate island-time and the breezy tropical style that dominates in our Caribbean hotels, it’s so refreshing to walk into a beachfront resort with a sleek and refined sensibility that would do just as well in any fashion-forward world capital. Channelling the island’s French background, Le Sereno brings a dash of understated Parisian elegance to its sun-splashed cove – along with a restaurant and spa even the City of Light would envy.
Mr & Mrs Smith say…‘Our enormous suite did not disappoint. Luxurious chocolate browns and Payne’s grey, with splashes of crimson, met with wonderful textures of matte dark wood, woven chairs, plush towels and linen-like mosquito nets romantically draped around the bed.
The minimalism was tastefully enhanced by the right amount of flourish and the proportions were perfect. High ceilings and a split-level separating a four-poster emperor-sized bed from the living room give the space great flow. The gorgeous patio doors spanning the full width of the room open onto an enclosed verandah overlooking a palm-lined azure blue sea.’ Read all Le Sereno reviews…
