Cloos Life Guide: Top 3 St. Barths Hotels
Earlier this year, Christopher Cloos introduced the newest addition to the Cloos Collection – the limited edition frame St. Barths by Robin Thicke. There is a reason why this model is named after the French island ‘Saint Barthélemy’ located in the Caribbean Sea. Known as an overseas collectivity of France that blends the sophistication of St.-Tropez with the laissez-faire Caribbean lifestyle, it was the obvious choice to name this frame ‘St. Barths’. This Cloos Life Journal gives you our top pick accommodations on the tropical paradise island.
Perched above the brilliant blue waters that surround St Barths, the Hotel Christopher brings understated Parisian glamour to the ritzy Caribbean island.
A luxurious spa and a clifftop fresh-water infinity pool – the island’s largest – would already make this the kind of place you never want to leave; the ocean views from nearly every oversized room guarantee that you’ll be trying to move in.
With a total of 42 rooms, suites and three 4 bedroom villas that arc above the dramatic rocky coastline, there are plenty of accommodation choices. The villas are ideal for extended families or a group of friends.
