Le Sereno plans to reopen in November 2018 after renovations made necessary by Hurricane Irma.
Le Sereno is an intimate beachfront hotel set on a long stretch of palm-shaded sandy beach. Most of the rooms here are suites and villas overlooking the stunning Grand Cul-de-Sac lagoon and offering spectacular panoramic ocean views. St. Barths attracts a very affluent and cosmopolitan demographic. In the winter high season, some of the richest people in the world visit on their yachts and dock in Gustavia, yet the island, like the resort, has a barefoot luxury vibe. The interiors of the rooms feature all-natural materials—even the bathroom and shower stalls are made of tropical wood, the sinks of volcanic stone. The decoration embodies the style of designer Christian Liaigre: simple, with rich natural materials and attention to detail. Liaigre made sure the rooms capitalize on the bright turquoise lagoon, the ocean, and the nature outside.
