Cheval Blanc, the famous luxury hotel brand belonging to the LVMH conglomerate, opened a new establishment in the Antilles, in Saint-Bartholomew. The palace will settle down at a anciently renowned address, the ancient Hotel Saint-Barth Isle de France.
A new Cheval Blanc in Saint-Barth
The Cheval Blanc, the luxury hotel chain owned by LVMH, bought in 2013 the Saint-Barth Isle de France Hotel. Nearly a year after its acquisition the hotel will be opening its doors in October to reveal a great number of renovations and changes within the building.
This new palace will the chain’s second hotel opened outside of France, such as the Cheval Blanc Randheli. Other hotels of the chain should be opening shortly, including one in Egypt. Belonging to the Cheval Blanc will give hotel Saint-Barth Isle de France a quality upgrade, translated by various services available to guests.
The establishment includes 40 suites entirely renovated. For the decoration, the hotel adopted the chain’s trademark taupe colour and a blush pink colour exclusively imagined for this hotel. The combination creates harmony and highlights the turquoise Caribbean waters.
Cheval Blanc Saint-Barth Isle de France, high-quality services
Saint-Barth hotel’s future clients will have access to an exceptional spa where Guerlain formulas will be offered. For its opening, four individual cabins will welcome clients searching for a tranquil moment breathing in the salty air and bathing in the war sea. A double cabin is planned for 2015/2016.
Celebrating the opening of this prestigious hotel, Thierry Wasser – famous perfume composer who worked with Guerlain and is at the origin of the perfume L’Homme Idéal – created a fragrance representing this exceptional palace. Named Tropical Chic, it will be only be sold within the hotel. The hotel also entered a partnership with the hairdresser Leonor Greyl. The brand developed a hair product only available to the hotel’s guests, devoted to protecting clients’ hair against the sun’s UV rays composed of natural ingredients.
On arrival, a surprise will be waiting in each room, such as collection of solar products or elegant hats. Guests will also have access to a private concierge service.
Whilst the Cheval Blanc Saint-Barth Isle de France will open next October, the LVMH group is having a few problems concerning the opening of its new hotel within the Samaritaine building in Paris.
