What’s the Deal: St Barth’s isn’t just for jetsetters with unlimited euros to burn. Hotel Le Village has 28 rooms and suites set in a 10 acre garden. It recently received a 1 million euro, two-year refurbishing to keep up with its chic neighbors, with indoor/outdoor showers, flat-screen TVs, terrace Jacuzzis and surround sound. All for less than $175 a night, including continental breakfast for two. That’s more like a room service bill at some of the tony properties on this rarefied island.
Details: Hotel Le Village has a new glass-walled wellness center that features yoga/massage suite and an upstairs gym with panoramic views across the bay.Guests can walk to the beach, bistros, cafes, take-outs and shops – no costly taxi necessary. Towels, loungers, coolers and snorkel masks from the front desk, free of charge. All suites and most rooms have money-saving kitchens and le supermarche is just a short walk away.
Fine Print: Starting rate of 135 euros ($163.71)for a double with breakfast is good until December 16, 2012.
