Overlooking the sparkling waters of the Caribbean Sea, the Hotel Barrière Le Carl Gustaf is one of St. Barths‘ most lavish luxury resorts, offering travelers an unprecedented island experience filled with tranquility and adventure. As we approach the holiday season, Le Carl Gustaf has announced a phenomenal package for those looking to spend the holidays in St. Barths, one in which guests’ private bungalows are transformed into deluxe festive hideaways. After all, who needs to dream of a frosty “white Christmas” when the Le Carl Gustaf has white sandy beaches?

St. Barths is overflowing with extravagant hotels that beckon all types of seasoned globetrotters, but what sets “Le Carl” apart is its picturesque views, intimacy, and exceptional amenities. Perched above the relaxed Caribbean capital of Gustavia, Le Carl guests are only a short walk away from the ornate bars and boutiques the town has to offer. Despite its proximity to the bustling streets of Gustavia, the hotel’s private bungalows make vacationers feel tucked away from the clamor, providing them with the perfect tropical escape.

Upon arrival at the property, guests are provided with a delectable Christmas cocktail to kick off their holiday celebrations. Specialty eggnog, a bottle of champagne, fresh cookies, and Christmas movies are all supplied within the Deluxe Bungalow Suite. If that wasn’t enough, all rooms will contain a full-sized Christmas tree, a splendid final touch to one’s “home away from home” for the season’s celebrations.

On Christmas Eve, visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy a sunset cruise with breathtaking views atop turquoise water, and of course, champagne is included! The package also offers dinner for two to ring in the new year an on-property restaurant, Shellona. Located on Shell Beach, guests can relish in the mesmerizing backdrop of waves and powdery sand, all while savoring the flavors produced by renowned Greek chef, Yiannis Kioroglou.
