Romantic and luxury destination
Here’s a novel idea, why not whisk your partner for a romantic weekend getaway where haute couture meets beachside luxury?
While you don’t have to travel to the idyllic atolls of the Maldives to enjoy a romantic beach holiday, passing up on the chance to stay at the Cheval Blanc resort might, in fact, do some serious damage to your love life. The resort is the third hotel from Gallic luxury gods LVMH – the first being the outstanding ski chalet in Courchevel, France and in the northern arc of the Caribbean, Saint-Barthélemy reveals an elegant island with new resort. The villas property spans the entire island of Randheli, and is only reached via a seaplane from the Mauritian capital, Malé. Like anything you would expect from LVMH – who own fashion power brands Louis Vuitton and Berluti, among others – the hotel environment is luxury of the very highest order.
The open-plan, residential-size villas come in three types: Garden Villas; Water Villas; and Island Villas – each with seven- metre high doors, private beach access as well as a private swimming pool and lagoon-side pontoons. Naturally, every villa has its own private infinity-edge pool. The island also has plenty of dining options thanks to a poolside bar, restaurants, a private dining space, and in-room dining options. The resort also boasts the impressive Cheval Blanc Spa – complete with hammam, yoga and Pilates facilities, and treatment areas. If all off this isn’t enough to spoil your other half, stay than at Cheval Blanc Randheli Private Island. This four-bedroom villa is the epitome of exclusive privacy with unique facilities including its own spa, oversized 25-metre long outdoor pool, pristine beaches and exotic gardens.
