St Barth’s Le Sereno Is Open Again

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - December 19, 2020

One of St Barth’s top beach hotels has officially reopened, Caribbean Journal has learned. 

Le Sereno, the Grand Cul de Sac luxury resort, began welcoming guests again this weekend. 

The property has relaunched with a spa by Valmont, new family suites, a reimagine restaurant and an extended beach area called Plage. 

“It has been a challenging year for the industry, but we are delighted to welcome our guests back to Le Sereno as we open our doors and launch exciting new experiences for the 2021 season,” said Samy Ghachem, Managing Director of Sereno Hotels. “We look forward to providing our guests with world-class cuisine inspired by our sister property, Il Sereno Lago di Como, design-driven accommodation with offerings for larger groups and of course, the relaxed and luxury service that they know and love. Guests can rest assured our staff and procedures are above and beyond, having just finished our season at Il Sereno in Lake Como.” 

The hotel has also debuted new Suites Piscines, villa-style suites that come with their own private pools. They also can be connected, the property said. 

“Following damage from the passing of Hurricane Irma my family decided to demolish and to completely rebuild from scratch a significant part of the property, including more than half the rooms and all the public spaces, while maintaining the iconic style of Le Sereno which has a devoted following amongst guests. In the true spirit of ‘plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose’, we worked on a complete rebuild, while keeping the essence of the hotel intact” said Luis Contreras, Founder of Sereno Hotels. “The craziness of this year meant our guests weren’t able to experience to the fullest this brand new hotel and we are looking forward to our grand reopening.”  

The relaunch of the hotel is another boost for what seems to be a very strong holiday season on the island.
