St. Barths: Drinks at Cheval Blanc

August 23, 2017

One thing I loved about St. Barth’s is how accessible everything is.  We stayed at Tom Beach hotel right on St. Jean beach (SO comfortable and highly recommended, not sponsored!) but spent most of the day out and about finding shoot locations in our rental mini cooper convertible.   It was a luxury visit some of the Island’s most prestigious resorts for lunch or a drink, and I particularly loved our quick trip to Cheval Blanc.  It is elegant and peaceful and I found that aesthetically it was my favorite of the hotels we visited.   Having said that, we didn’t get a chance to visit Le Toiny which looks like absolute heaven and like a dream hotel so next time I would love to go there too!

I really regret that we didn’t get to have lunch here, the restaurant sits right in the sand.  It was totally booked up (the Island is about to shut down as it’s off season and everyone takes a six week break) but we can’t wait to go next time.   It is on Flamands beach which was also our favorite to shoot on and where we did the majority of the series.   It felt like the perfect way to pass our last evening with a celebratory cocktail. We played several rounds of cards and then headed further up the Island to catch the sunset.
