Hotel Emeraude Plage
Saint Barthelemy
French West Indies

Hotel Emeraude Plage on the island of St. Barthelemy in the French West Indies is our hospitality partner in the Caribbean.   This grand little seven square mile island is fondly known as St. Barth and is controlled by France.  In the minds of many, St. Barth it is the "last beacon of refinement" of simplest luxury in the Americas.   In the Caribbean, St. Barth is known as the island of beaches, gourmet cuisine and luxury shopping.

What makes St. Barth so unique?  St. Barth is special.  It is unlike any other island in the Caribbean.  It has a very European flavor to it.  It is safe.  It is affluent.  There is no poverty.  There are no high rises or golf courses.  The food is fabulous; the shopping is chic; the beaches are lined with white sand and bordered by crystal clear blue water and the islanders welcome American visitors with open arms.  The island of St. Barth is comprised mostly of villas, small hospitality establishments and the best cuisine and shopping in the entire Caribbean.  You will have 70 plus French restaurants to choose from along with 18 of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

The most beautiful harbor in all the Caribbean is located in the only town on the island which is known as Gustavia.   During winter season each year most large yachts of any importance from around the world will port for a period of time in the harbor of Gustavia.

The original culture of Dutch and French still exists today. St. Barth is a French island where French is spoken.  English is also spoken in the resorts, shops and restaurants.   Language will not be a problem.  The best way to get to St. Barth is to fly to St. Maarten directly from most major airports in the United States.  Once in St. Maarten, you are a mere 10 - 12 minute flight away from paradise.

Hotel Emeraude Plage is located on the renowned Baie de St. Jean, the bay most centrally located on the island and nearest to everything one might desire to do each day.  The most beautiful beach restaurants in the world are located on Baie de St. Jean.  Hotel Emeraude Plage has the largest amount of beach frontage of any hospitality establishment on all of St. Barth.  Most every villa or bungalow at Emeraude Plage opens directly out to the ocean and most have ocean views that go directly out from you sleeping area.  The grounds are lush, natural, beautiful and extremely well maintained.  Baie de St. Jean is truly one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean.

Hotel Emeraude Plage is family owned and operated.  This French family continues to put much energy, talent and creativity into the evolution of Emeraude Plage each year as they have for the past 25 years.  Emeraude Plage is extremely well managed and is one of the best values on the island.   Hotel Emeraude Plage offers just about every amenity that one could possibly want.

The 24 duplex bungalows, 2 cottages and 1 two bedroom villa were all completely renovated in the past two years and all have kitchenettes.  Everything sparkles.  Hotel Emeraude Plage has one of the best locations on the island and you are within walking distance of many of the island's favorite restaurants, boutiques, grocery stores and bakeries.

We highly recommend the experience provided by Hotel Emeraude Plage and St. Barth. We are very proud that Hotel Emeraude Plage is our hospitality partner in the Caribbean.
