A favorite hot spot of Northrop & Johnson, Le Sereno Hotel in St Barths is ready to welcome guests back to its beachfront location on the stunning Grand Cul-de-Sac. Located in a protected marine reserve, there really is no better place to celebrate the start of a new winter season than by having lunch or dinner at their waterfront restaurant Al Mare. For those looking to spend a few nights ashore, the interior of this intimate beachfront hotel has also been freshly re-designed by yacht designer Christian Liaigre, a name well-known to the yachting crowd for the award-winning design of the Abeking & Rasmussen superyacht CLOUDBREAK, multi-award-winning sailing yacht VERTIGO, as well as many other well-known large yachts. Le Sereno’s newest villas now offer multi-generational family groups the opportunity to combine the spacious 7,000 square foot villas in order to create an expansive property that includes a large, private pool that mimics the hotel’s main pool. Furnished using Christian Liaigre’s signature design pieces, the accommodations feature elegant outdoor living areas overlooking the stunning Grand Cul de Sac natural reserve, while the interiors echo the hotel’s understated luxury décor, with oak ceilings and warm textures using a natural color palate.
For more active guests, the location of Le Sereno on the island’s premier marine reserve offers ideal conditions for water sports and beachside fitness, with kite surfing and snorkeling lessons, yoga classes on the pool deck or beach, and a chance to indulge in a treatment at the hotel’s spa. In line with Northrop & Johnson’s new environmental commitments, Le Sereno’s redevelopment provided the opportunity to incorporate new measures to limit the hotel’s environmental impact. This included the use of sustainably sourced materials, new solar panels, new windows, lighting and insulation, all of which go to help limit consumption in the daily operations and make us even keener to recommend incorporating Le Sereno into a superyacht charter through the Caribbean’s Leeward Islands.
