In St Barth, the Perfect Caribbean Vacation for Couples

By: Alexander Britell - February 15, 2020

Staying in a villa is the ultimate St Barth vacation — it’s a way to experience the essence of what makes the island so unique. 

It means baguette breakfasts with nothing but you and sea blue; twilight rosé on the pool; and sunrise to sunset with St Barth’s unmatched serenity.

But there’s a new way to stay in St Barth — one that includes the comfort and luxury of a villa with the intimacy of a boutique hotel. 

It’s called the Romance Collection, and it’s the brainchild of villa company St Barth Properties.

The new Romance Collection is a curated portfolio of the company’s “most idyllic one-bedroom villas,” according to Tom Smyth, co-owner and vice president at St Barth Properies.

There are 10 villas in total, ranging from the beachy Genia villa in Marigot to Silhouette, a one-bedroom villa in Anse des Cayes with captivating views. 

“It’s the perfect pairing for couples,” Smyth told Caribbean Journal

And while they’re more intimate, they come with all of the luxe amenities you’d find in a larger St Barth villa.

That means the villas come with amenities like private pools, Wi-Fi, well-equipped kitchens, chic bathrooms and, most importantly, the kind of spectacular views that set St Barth villas apart from the rest

That’s without mentioning a St Barth Properties standard: daily maid service in every villa. 

Even better? Couples that stay for seven days or longer get a free 45-minute massage right inside the villas. 

It all adds up to a rather unique way to experience the French Caribbean’s most exclusive destination, a new spin on what remains one of the region’s great, truly unforgettable vacations.
