Here’s my quick update on what’s happening in St Barths, as of early November. Discover my personal take on how things are going in St Barths, now that the 2021-2022 season has started. From a wedding with 300 guests at the Eden Rock hotel to the closing of Maya’s restaurant, I go over a few key things that you need to know when you join us for the holiday season.

I recorded it from the deck of our villa Maison Domingue. My apologies for the messy hair, but I was just getting up from a well-deserved Sunday afternoon siesta 😉
