Inhabited by the descendants of French and European settlers – and a lot of iguanas – St. Barts has a sense of European chic sophistication, but in a relaxed, tropical setting. It’s the island for those who enjoy the best in life, from duty-free shopping, to lounging in luxury, to yachting in some of the most beautiful waters in the world. It’s Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, with lizards.
While most visitors opt to rent private villas, cottages and apartments, there are also a number of hotel options. What you won’t find are large-scale developments. The hotels that are on the island are smaller and more intimate. Some hotels like Les Ilets de la Plage combine the best of both worlds – hotel amenities, but all the rooms are actually free-standing beach bungalows. They’re ideal for a secluded, romantic honeymoon.
For couples looking into St. Barts for their Destination Wedding, all those villa rentals provide ideal settings for gatherings of friends and family. And, depending on which villa you choose, you can make it as economical or as luxurious as you want – either way, it will be intimate and unforgettable!
Just know – only St. Barts residents can have a civil (ie. legal) marriage ceremony on the island, though anyone is welcome to have a religious ceremony. It’s an easy hurdle – get the legalities done at home (and hey, go out to a great dinner with friends who can’t make it to the island!), and then have your dream wedding on one of the Caribbean’s most idyllic island retreats.
