Why Stay At Hotel Christopher
The 41-room Hotel Christopher, on secluded Pointe Milou, St. Barth's, is home to the island's largest swimming pool and offers plenty of waterfront views.
On a glitzy island like St. Barth's, intimate, low-key escapes are hard to come by. Enter Hotel Christopher, with 41 rooms and suites on the island's secluded Pointe Milou, just a 20-minute drive east of Gustavia. The alfresco restaurant and bar, Mango, serves up some of the island's best mahi mahi, all right next to the largest swimming pool in St. Barth's. Inside, chic interiors (concrete floors, pitched ceilings) let the ever-present view of the sea take center stage; each room features a daybed on the balcony—the perfect spot for a private oceanfront nap. Even without a private beach to call its own, the property has enough cache to lure a laidback crowd to the hotel's chic, palm-tree-lined pool deck.
With all the hills and winding roads on St. Barths, a rental car is a must for traveling between the hotel and the island's many beaches.
Make reservations by 3 p.m. for dinner at on-site Taino; snag the tucked-away table in the restaurant's library corner, and don't miss the tuna tataki in coconut milk.
Arrive at Gustaf III Airport (SBH) in Saint Barthélemy which is approximately 10 miles from the Hotel. Anticipate about 15-20 minutes of travel time.Pointe Milou, Saint Barth, French West Indies

Why We Love Saint Barth

One-hour tours from $50.
Where to Eat: A local favorite, Andy's Hideaway serves up French and Italian-influenced dishes, plus a thin-crust pizza that's been voted best on the island. Call ahead for reservations; Andy's is always hopping.
