Tropical chic boutique hotel opening in December

By Emilie Piriou

Having perfected their own signature style of the French art de vivre with 7 luxury hotels in the French Alps and 3 hotels on the Mediterranean and in Provence, the Sibuet family set sail for new horizons, and they came across a rare treasure in the French West Indies: a charming colonial property that dominates island and ocean in magnificent Saint Barts.


Between white sandy beaches and rocks that plunge into waters spanning fifty shades of blue, discover Villa Marie Saint-Barth, the newest crown jewel of the Maisons & Hotel Sibuet label, and the second Villa Marie following the first, sister hotel in Saint Tropez.

Overlooking the spectacular Flamands Beach, in the hills above Colombier , Villa Marie Saint Barth is one of those destinations where the feeling of romance and quality of life are matched only by the beautiful setting of the unspoilt countryside... in the heart of a vast and beautiful tropical garden, creating an intimate atmosphere, typical of the plantation style, the hotel easily invites moments of pur pleasure. The outdoor swimming pool, tucked in the gardens, provides cool refreshment among the explosion of colours of exotic flowers and plantlife. The Pure Altitude spa with its signature treatments highlights the wealth of local botanicals. As for the restaurant, François Plantation offers traditional cuisine with local flavors to the delight of epicureans.

The West Indies architectural style is a lovely blend of intermingling influences: Colonial plantation spirit to colorful ethnic Caribbean Indian flair to lasting British influence, and a subtle dose of the French's elegant art de vivre.
Seashells, pink corals, woods polished or bleached by the sun and caressed by the tropical winds mix with earthy décor elements, hand woven cordage and bamboo ... Lush inviting outdoor living areas with clean lines, covered porches and no shortage of windows combine with the décor to offer an abundance of fresh, cheerful and understated sophistication.
