The French West Indies is the ultimate vacation destination.
FUN anecdote: I’ve been going to St Barth’s since my early days of modeling in my teens, and then I went for December holidays every year with my family and young children. Now I travel with them there as adults.
MY favorite restaurants:
1. Nikki Beach. The food there is outstanding! From the sushi platters to their pizzas. Great music and beautiful views. 2. Hotel Cheval Blanc by LVMH. Amazing for views and lunch. The chic gift shop is a must visit. They have the best white dresses on the island. 3. Eden Rock. This hotel is a fantastic lunch venue in Saint Jean with a fun beach bar. Try the margaritas- I love the pina colada’s- they literally spectacular. 4. Kinugawa. This restaurant on the port is great for sushi.The service is impeccable and the sushi is so fresh. My favorites include the black cod, and crispy rice. 5. GypSea. The new beach club in St Jean is star studded- and has a great vibe on the island. The music is amazing- the food is sensational-the gift shop has the best unique gifts for friends and family. I especially love the tote bags and bracelets. 6. Le Toiny. This is one of my favorite hotels in the world next to Hotel Du Cap in the South of France. Let me set the scene- A custom Defender 110 chauffeurs you in style to the beach club- which is on it’s own private beach and has the best surfing. The smell of grilled lobsters permeates throughout the restaurant. Add a glass of Minuty rose or Domaine Ott and the lobster! You are set for the best vacation experience. 7. L’Esprit. This restaurant is located at Saline beach and is an amazing dinner venue. The vibe is very cool island chic. 8. Le Fouquets. This is the newest restaurant to arrive on the island. Le Fouquets by Chef Pierre Gagnaire -featuring the gorgeous views a top of Gustavia- it is the most buzzed about worthy spot on the island.
My favorite stores:
For men: Paasha. Chic and unusual men’s clothing
For women: Lilli Belle. Perfect beach vibes and the best edit of my favorite French designers.
Now, the most beautiful home on the island.
