St Barts re-opens in full glory
— Alexandra Baradi
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, December 6, 2017 — The stunning paradise island of St Barts hosted a spectacular night to celebrate the re-opening of the island following the aftermath of hurricane Irma. Each year Saint Barthélemy presents the St Barth Gourmet Festival on the island in November. This year due to the exceptional circumstances the event was held in Paris on Friday 1st December.
This gastronomic feast took place at the luxury 5-star hotel Le Bristol on the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. Le Bristol is managed by the very exclusive Oetker Collection which also manages the famous Eden Rock Hotel in St Barts.
Paris and the island of St Barths have never before seen so much gastronomic talent coming together in one room. The three celebrated chefs included
• Emmanuel Renaut, 3 Michelin Stars chef of Flocons de Sel Hotel in Megève
• Christian Le Squer, 3 Michelin Stars chef of Le Cinq restaurant in George V Hotel in Paris
• Eric Frechon, 3 Michelin Stars Chef of Epicure Restaurant in Le Bristol Paris
The hosts of the night include Bruno Magras, President of the Federation of Saint-Barthélemy, Nils Dufau, President of the Tourism for St Barts and Anne Dentel from the Eden Rock Villa Rentals and President of the Association of Hoteliers.
The evening commenced with a spectacular champagne reception accompanied by exquisite canapes in the lobby of Le Bristol. The reception preceded a 7-course tasting menu prepared by the three famous chefs in one of the private rooms in the hotel. Also, there was an incredible raffle held with prizes valued at over US$100,000. The money raised is going directly to assist with the remaining re-construction of the island.
The island of St Barts is already looking spectacular and more beautiful than ever. The majority of the villas on the island have been repaired and are already in perfect condition. The luxury villas have access to a beautiful serviced beach at Lorient. Guests will be truly treated like VIPs with a meet and greet at the airport on arrival and chauffeured transfers to their villa, welcome beauty pouch with Ligne St Barth bathroom products, fresh pastries, and orange juice delivered each morning for breakfast
Also, all bookings with Exceptional Villas include a complementary and highly professional concierge service. Almost all the restaurants and shops on the island are also back open. “There has never been a better time to travel to the island as it won’t be as crowded as before, and the island is looking more beautiful than ever,” says owner and CEO of Exceptional Villas Alexandra Baradi.
