New Hotels Opening in October 2014

Autumn might bring with it the countdown to Christmas but seeing there are quite a few weeks yet to go, we have the second best thing to look forward to: new hotel openings. From Beijing to Saint Barth, there are quite a few luxury hotels ready to welcome guests across the world.

Cheval Blanc Saint Barth, Isle de France

What to expect when luxury brand Cheval Blanc and one of the Caribbean's most sophisticated hotels come together: Magic, as it happens as Cheval Blanc, Saint Barth re-opens this month following a "reimagining" by Cheval Blanc. Based on their intimate knowledge of Saint Barth, the "alchemists" organise bespoke excursions for guests. Private picnincs on a desert island, exclusive shopping sprees in Gustavia, romantic sunset cruises - you name it and it shall be done!

There is also a Guerlain spa for those who'd rather relax than explore. Nestled in the heart of the Maison's tropical gardens, the spa features four treatment rooms, a hamman and a relaxation pavilion as well as a range of treatments exclusive to the island.

The resort offers a range of accommodation types but if like us you’re after a room with a view the sumptuous Beach Suite right on the white sand beach is it!
