After several months of rebuilding following the hurricanes of 2017, The Christopher is back for a dynamic 2018/19 winter season. The island of St. Barthélemy has been especially proactive with renovations and enhancements throughout the island including an exciting fresh look for The Christopher, a St. Barth favorite which has taken its redo beyond the needed repairs to an extensive restoration and the introduction of three new villas.
St. Barth is located in the French West Indies, easy to reach via Puerto Rico or St. Maarten. The Christopher is located above the rocky shoreline of the popular neighborhood of Pointe Milou, home to the magnetic Le Ti Saint Barth restaurant and some of the poshest villas on the island.
Perched above the brilliant blue waters that surround St Barths, the Hotel Christopher brings understated Parisian glamour to the ritzy Caribbean island.
The hotel draws energy from these neighbors but is also a quiet and relaxed refuge for those in-the-know on St. Barth. There is no beach at The Christopher but the stunning views beyond the oversized infinity pool are unforgettable compensations and a drive into St. Barth’s capital, Gustavia, is a must for the shops and historic sites.
The owners, the Pitch Promotion Group, redesigned an existing hotel in 2006 by imagining a large house with pure and timeless architecture. The Christopher has thrived ever since. The hotel is entering a new era of luxury, but the sweeping views of the sea, stunning sunsets and lush island vegetation that add to The Christopher’s beauty have not changed.
The 42 accommodations include 23 rooms and 19 suites. In 2019, three spacious villas will be added to the inventory. The pure lines of the rooms and suites, made with stone, wood, resin and gray marble, give them a special elegance and compatibility with the environment. Spread over two floors, most rooms extend under the shade of their own terrace. In some, the magic of disappearing windows shows off the landscape and sea views beyond. The simplicity of the Creole architecture, combined with a minimalist design and a subtle color palette, is compatible with the surroundings. The sounds of the rustling palms make comforting background music.
