The best thing about Le Sereno is the wind. As soon as you walk out onto the back patio where the pool and restaurant are, there’s this soft, cooling breeze, just light enough not to mess up your salt-and-sun-bleached coiffure, but strong enough to keep you blisfully glued to your king size sun bed for twelve hours. My sister and I stayed at the hotel the last two nights of our vacation in St Barths. It was the perfect way to end a holiday: relaxing, no-fuss, zen, quiet, spacious, friendly and just plain beautiful. I could easily say this is my new favorite hotel in the world.
The bay where the hotel is built is shallow; you can walk about half a mile out into the ocean without having to swim, until you hit another sand bank, where the water gets cooler and deeper. My sister saw a giant turtle on her paddle board. (My sister was on the paddle board, not the turtle…) (Phahaaa!) Anyways, you can windsurf, jet-ski, kite-board and sail, or if you’re not into adventure or hospitals ride a dapper, yellow water bicycle. There is something for the whole family! I’ll even bring my kid here one day!
All the clothes I am wearing, except my own two vintage pieces and shoes, were lent to me by local stores in Gustavia. Vintage floral skirt and cropped top from Gypsy Nation Vintage; Wooden wedges by Celine; Blue ruffle and button bikini by Agua Bendita; Backless T-shirt and denim patch shorts by Free in St Barths; Neon ‘Adilette Trefoil’ slides by Adidas; White ‘St Barths French West Indies’ long sleeve T-shirt by Spirit (gift from my sister – Thanks Blinie!); Mirror sunglasses in red/orange and black/blue by Wildfox; Oversized peasant top by Lolita Jaca; Christian Lacroix-style purse at Wild Side Boutique.
