Villas at The Christopher on St. Barth’s Pointe Milou

St. Barth’s and luxury are practically synonymous, but families looking for a little extra bragging rights can be among the first to book one of the new four-bedroom villas at The Christopher on St. Barth’s Pointe Milou.

 

Even for an island known for its exclusivity, The Christopher takes the notion of privacy to a new level. Despite being just minutes from the lively Le Ti St. Barth night club, the property is tucked among some of the island’s poshest villas and inspires fierce loyalty among its repeat guests.

 

Sunset watchers swear by its prime location looking west toward the bay of St. Jean, and guests are close to some of the prettiest secluded beaches — the kind with no hotels — on the island.

Amenities include Christo restaurant, opened in 2018 and focused on sustainably sourced ingredients, and the Mango Beach Club, where guests can enjoy more casual fare poolside.

 

Finally, the Sisley Spa features treatment rooms overlooking the water, where guests are lulled by the sounds of the rhythmic waves.

 

The new villas, which bring the total number of accommodations at the property to 42, along with the restaurant and spa, are part of a multiphase renovation project following the hurricanes of 2017.

 

Two of the new villas, perched above the water, are open now, and a third will open this spring.

 

Located above the hotel, the villas feature large decks and private pools and, in terms of services, they walk a fine line between offering the privacy of a villa rental with the convenience of a hotel and its amenities. Villa guests have full access to all The Christopher’s facilities, including the Sisley Spa, fitness room and restaurants, but they can also request the services of a private chef or book in-villa spa treatments.

 

Designer Olivia Putman of Studio Putman blended natural materials, like bamboo, sandstone and volcanic stone, with modern decor elements for a luxurious but relaxed aesthetic.

 

Recognizing visitors to St. Barth are typically eager to explore the island, rather than spend all their days sitting by the pool, the property boasts proximity to such off-property treats as gourmet dining or shopping in the town of Gustavia — about 15 minutes away — or a day at Saline or St. Jean beaches, about 10 minutes away. The Christopher is also about seven minutes from Grand Cul-de-Sac or Lorient bays, 15 minutes from the airport and from Gouverneur Beach and about 20 minutes to Flamands beach.
