After a long-awaited renovation, Rosewood’s iconic resort on St. Barts has reopened

Rosewood's iconic resort

In 2017, the resort was shuttered for a roughly five-year renovation.

Because of its famed nightlife scene, French-Caribbean culture, fantastic cuisine, and a certain je ne sais quoi draw to its fabled beaches, St. Barts has long been a favourite destination for jet-setters travelling to the Caribbean.

There’s even more reason to visit now that Rosewood Le Guanahani St. Barth has opened. The resort, which first opened its doors in 1986, shuttered in 2017 for a nearly five-year restoration.

The reopening of the hotel and the introduction of open-air dining haunt Beach House St. Barth, with its companion Bar Mélangé, a bespoke children’s club, and Sense, Rosewood’s hallmark spa, brought the rewards of these labours to life in exquisite detail last month.

Martein van Wagenberg, Le Guanahani St. Barth, told Travel + Leisure, “I’m proud to say our concept of living true to the spirit of the resort while taking in new concept and allover enhancements in partnership with Rosewood Resorts and Hotels has really come to life.”

“The resort’s best location on a quiet corner of the island, combined with residential-style accommodations, breathtaking views found in hidden nooks to discover around every corner, and an energy that feels like home throughout the property, creates an intimate ambience that is both familiar and alluring.”

The property’s design, which incorporates elements of both French and Caribbean traditions, aids guests in transitioning from a frazzled to a fully Zen frame of mind upon arrival.

Expect calming palettes of yellow, cerulean blue, and lavender (the latter a nod to the treasured fields in the South of France) complemented with bursts of vivid colour and greenery with David M. Schwartz Architects and Luis Pons Design Lab at the tiller of the resort’s rooms.

The twenty nine rooms, 27 suites, and 10 signature suites on offer have handsome furniture created by Luis Pons. The cost of a room starts at $1,921 per night.
