St. Barth: The LVMH Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle De France
By Gary Walther
Some luxury hotels have a double identity. They promote the alluring side, and they scarcely mention the other side, which sometimes has its own allure.
Case-in-point: One of THD’s favorite hotels in the world, the Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France. (That very long name? The Cheval Blanc is a prefix added by LVMH when it acquired the hotel for the nascent brand.)
Whatever, the Isle de France faces the island’s best beach, Flamands. That lovely strip of sand and the rooms that face it are the property’s calling card.
