Luxury Villas in St. Barth

Daily

Planning a Caribbean getaway this December? You’re just in time to book one of The Christopher’s luxurious new villas. The three new, four-bedroom villas complete the 42-guestroom hotel’s renovations following the 2017 hurricane season. Other new additions include the Sisley Spa and Christo restaurant.

The new villas were designed by Olivia Putnam and the aesthetic blends modern looks with the island’s natural bounty seamlessly. The villas are completely open to sea views, with their own private pools. Inside, the decor combines touches of bamboo, sandstone, volcanic stone and the hotel’s signature shade of orange alongside strategically placed lighting that takes full advantage of natural light from the outdoors.

If you don’t quite need a four-bedroom villa during your trip to the island, The Christopher can still provide a superb basecamp for your St. Barth explorations. The hotel is situated on Pointe Milou for great views and access to nightlife attractions. Guests are 10 minutes from some of the island’s preferred beaches and 15 minutes to Gustavia, the island’s hub for luxury dining, shopping and the airport.

The new Christo restaurant serves organic fare, while the new spa features water-view treatment rooms.

If you’re planning a visit earlier, The Christopher is welcoming guests attending the Sixth Annual St. Barth Gourmet Festival, Nov. 6–10, as well as the St. Barth Cats-Cup catamaran race, Nov. 20–24. For the latter, guests enjoy enviable views of the catamarans sailing by.

The Island of the Knights

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
