Eden Rock St. BarthsLike a Rockstar
Why we love it: First off, it’s in St. Barths. If you look up the definition of idyllic, this famed isle belongs there. Take note Webster. Secondly, they have a villa appropriately called Rockstar, where the top of the celebrity food chain has stayed in the 18 karat gold, top to bottom tiled bathrooms with tubs big enough to fit at least 4 mere mortals, or 8 supermodels, which we’re sure they have at one point or another. And now that Pippa is marrying into the family behind Eden Rock, your chances of a Prince George and Mr. and Mrs. Windsor sighting just got even bigger.
Celebrities aside, the service, accommodations and food at the hotel are impeccable. With Jean-Georges as the resident chef, his signature black plate appetizers and crispy rice sushi just cannot be beat.
What to know: When we’re not resting our heads at Rockstar or Villa Nina, which is right on the beach with its own private pool and one of the best art collections in all of Eden Rock, we love the Beach House rooms, which are clean, modern and chic. The sizing isn’t huge, but each suite is deeply comfortable with your own outdoor space. If you’re looking for the unique, the rooms in the original hotel cut into the rocks are right up your alley. Our favorite is the Garbo Suite, named after Greta who stayed there, and has an updated deco feel to it.
