It’s been quite a week for the island of St Barth.
First was the long-awaited relaunch of the boutique Hotel Le Toiny on the island’s raw south-eastern shore.
Now, another leading resort has completed its post-Hurricane Irma comeback: the Hotel Christopher.
“Restored and rejuvenated, Christopher St Barth is now open,” the property announced following the re-opening on Wednesday.
Beises the rooms the hotel boasts the signature Sisley Spa, the Christo Lounge; the Mango Beach Club, both of which are helmed by leading French Chef Nicolas Tissier, who plied his trade working for French legends including Christophe Pacheco, Christian Le Squer and Jean-Francois Piege.
The property is now being stewarded by new general manager Olivier Leroy, who comes to the Christopher after having served previously at the property from 2012 to 2016.
THPT Comment: The list of hotels that are already open in St Barth is now a broad one, from classics like Hotel Le Village and Pearl Beach to luxury resorts like Le Toiny, Le Sereno and the Christopher to beloved beach hotels like Les Ilets de la Plage, and in November the iconic Eden Rock St Barth will re-open, having already reopened its villa portfolio for several months.
