The Cool Pool of the Week: Villa Marie Saint-Barth

Reopening on March 2, Villa Marie Saint-Barth on St. Barts is ready to welcome Millennials with its classic outdoor swimming pool located under the shade of giant palm fronds, banana tree leaves, cacti and mango trees. 

The pool is a tranquil getaway for lunch, sunbathing, reading a book and taking a refreshing dip.

Millennials can have lunch by the pool in the “secret garden,” lounging out on a deckchair or relaxing in one of the garden’s alcoves. They can also enjoy a club sandwich with a Caribbean lobster medallion, grilled fish and colorful salads at the acclaimed Francois Plantation restaurant, which also serves other popular poolside dishes and snacks. 

Villa Marie Saint-Barth is the first hotel from famed French hotelier Maisons + Hotels Sibuet to open in North America. The hotel is debuting two new villas in March: the one-bedroom Villa SALINE with a Jacuzzi and the two-bedroom Villa FLAMAND, which will be complete with its own private pool.

To round out the experience, guests can relax at Pure Altitude Spa, a signature amenity of Sibuet hotels, offering personalized rituals including the soothing "After-Sun" repairing treatment with restorative jasmine, great for a day spent on the beach or soaking up the sun by the pool.

High above Colombier Beach, Villa Marie Saint Barth offers 21 individually decorated bungalows and villas with private pools, all with sea views or luxury garden views.
