Built in the traditional style of the Caribbean island we call home, at Les Ilets de la Plage we do things a bit differently to the hustle and bustle you might find elsewhere. We run a quiet, understated resort of 11 villas located on the beautiful St Jean Beach with a mixture of one, two and three-bedroom layouts either on the beach itself or amongst the hillside’s lush tropical gardens
This unique air of seclusion allows our visitors to hide away when they wish, and we’re sure it’s also the reason that many of them keeping coming back year after year.
It helps that the accommodation we provide is simply (but elegantly) decorated and pretty comfortable. We’ve always felt that home comforts are important, which is why all our villas have full kitchen facilities, air conditioning in the bedrooms, a daily maid service and a daily delivery of fresh breads and pastries right to the door.
Meanwhile, the beach cabana by the central pool area has coffee available all morning. In our experience, guests love the little bit of community that the pool area affords and they often gather to sunbathe, chat, and even enjoy a cocktail or two in the evenings. If you do need to keep track of the outside world or can’t bear to miss the big game, the cabana also has satellite TV and wireless internet access is available in the rooms (although we prefer to check our emails by the pool).
We do keep the reception desk manned during office hours though, and Eric, Carine and Mélane are on-hand to help you with any requirements you have during your stay. Hungry? Ask them to recommend and book one of St Barths’ many excellent restaurants for you (babysitting can also be arranged on request), or order in a home-cooked meal from the local deli. Maybe you fancy cooking something yourself in your villa? Just give us a shopping list of what you need and we’ll go for you.
Les Ilets is great for families, too (have a look at our lovely garden villas with multiple bedrooms). The area itself is very quiet and whilst children will love the beach, there’s also a huge variety of activities on offer. Ask us for booking details, and whilst you’re there, have a look at our little library of books and DVDs.
Life here is very simple, laid back and relaxing. You can spend a morning reading in your hammock, grab a lazy lunch on your terrace and then head to the beach for a tranquil afternoon. But whilst a stunning view of the ocean is never more than a few steps away, the resort is still within a stone’s throw of all the activity on St Barths’ north shore, with all the trendy bistros and boutiques you could shake a flip-flop at.
Sounds good, doesn’t it? Head over to the contact page to have a chat with us.
