For an expansive suite, look to Eden Rock and its Christopher Columbus Suite. With 2,200 square feet of space, it offers a single bedroom, climate-controlled terrace and a luxury spa bathroom.


Hotel Christopher is the place to go for the complete villa experience. Each of the hotel’s three villas comes with private, sea-view infinity pools, butler service, wine cellars and included treatments at the spa.


VIP services are the name of the game at Le Carl Gustaf. Think private transfers to and from St. Bart’s airport and complimentary spa treatments, if you book the right accommodations. The Villa Diane, for example, comes with a private butler, private chef, pool and more than 4,000 square feet of space.
