St. Barts Hotels
When you’re planning a trip to the beautiful island of St. Barts, you have several choices when it comes to accommodation. It can be overwhelming going through website after website to figure out which hotel is the perfect one for your vacation to the Caribbean.
I’ve compiled a list of all the hotels in St. Barts so you can have all the information in one place. I’ve even listed my favorite hotels to make your decision easier, hopefully.
List of St. Barts Hotels
St. Barts has about 25 hotels on our tiny island. We rely on the French star rating system on the island for rating our hotels, which rates by the type of accommodation and their star category. Our hotels range from one to five-star hotels, and we even have one palace!
If you’re wondering what a palace rating is, it’s a step above a five-star rating. You’ll notice that some of our hotels don’t have a star rating because they don’t fit into the ranking system. For example, if an accommodation offers bungalows and not hotel rooms, they won’t have stars.
On the French star rating system, a palace rating is equivalent to more than five stars. We only have one of these on the island:
- Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle De France
We have nine 5-star hotels on the island. These hotels are some of the largest and have all the comforts and luxuries you could want on an island vacation. The 5-star hotels are:

My Favorite Hotels
All of the hotels on St. Barts are excellent and make for a beautiful experience, but if you want to narrow down your list, here are my favorite hotels in St. Barts.

This 5-star hotel has 37 rooms and is a legendary hotel on the island. Remy De Haenen created Eden Rock to be surrounded by a beautiful coral reef and white sandy beaches. You’ll find Eden Rock in the heart of St. Jean Bay.

If you’re looking for the best hotel for the value and price, Hotel Christopher may be the one for you. Located on Pointe Milou, you’ll have fantastic views of the Caribbean Sea when you stay here. All 38 of the rooms have been renovated and have a view of both the pool and ocean.
One standout feature of Hotel Christopher is the elegant infinity pool. When you’re swimming in this outdoor pool, you’ll be able to see the small island of Tortue. The infinity pool is the place to be when it’s time for sunset.

The property at Les Mouettes is one of the more simple accommodations on St. Barts, but it’s still a beautiful place to stay while here. You’re a short walk to the supermarket for any food or snacks you may want, and there are still plenty of restaurants in the area.
Hotel Manapany is one of the most popular and luxurious accommodations in St. Barts. It’s in a quiet neighborhood on the north side of St. Barthelemy.
