It seems like every major celebrity has headed to the island nation of Saint Barthelemy, commonly known as St. Barts. Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, along with their family and friends rented an entire yacht to escape Los Angeles for the holidays. So, why does St. Barts draws celebs to it?
St. Barth’s was originally a French colony, which can be seen in all of the architecture on the island. On top of that, there are designer stores, and luxury hotels dotted all over the island. With only 25 square miles, this is one of the smaller islands in the Caribbean, which has made it that much more exclusive. This island caters to the world’s elite.
Where to Stay
If you can’t afford to rent a yacht for the duration of your stay, then head to one of the many glamorous beachside resorts. Hotel Le Toiny St. Barth and Eden Rock St. Barth’s, are two choices where you are guaranteed to see someone famous. But if you want to enjoy the island, and it’s sixteen white sand beaches, opt for a secluded villa. Not everyone wants to see and be seen, and St. Barth’s offers a laid-back attitude, rather than one full of paparazzi.
This is not where you go for a cheap vacation, and as only private planes and charters can fly to this island, remember to factor that in the cost.
