Isle de France is truly one of those special spots that make all other experiences pale in comparison. Our last visit (5th), was to celebrate the 40th Birthday of a dear friend. The setting is incredible - set on the best beach on St Barths. But beyond the setting (beach, room, grounds - food to DIE FOR!), the thing that sets Isle de France truly apart is its staff. From Christelle, the very present and always interested General Manager, to Laurence who manages more reservations than the property can possibly accommodate, the team is well led. One change I noticed this year is that Romain (formerly of Guest Relations) is now responsible for all special events (such as ours!) and his attention to detail and executing special touches is really remarkable.
If you want to escape reality in an incredibly beautiful setting, where everyone you encounter is there to make you feel welcome and comfortable, this is your place!!
