Les Ilets de la Plage – Understated Hidden Gem in St Barths

Les Ilets de la Plage

For those looking for an affordable way to vacation on the beautiful of St Barths, look no further than the intimate, family-owned beach resort of Les Ilets de la Plage. This hidden gem offers 11 private villas with direct access to the white sand beach and azure sea. Secluded yet central, Les Ilets has been a well-kept secret for years, combining the privacy and serenity of a villa with a hotel concierge service at an affordable price.

Following the hurricane season of 2017, Les Ilets de la Plage was the first property on island to reopen and took the opportunity to improve and upgrade resort-wide. They rewired the entire property, installed a new and improved Satellite TV system with US and French channels, set up a new internet system, installed new air conditioning units, new kitchens and new appliances, as well as all new furniture for the beach villas. The beach area was re-levelled and re-sanded with new parasols and sun-loungers arriving just in time for season. New trees and bushes were also planted throughout the property. While many hotels and resorts remain close for renovation throughout 2018, Les Ilets is a great option for those seeking intimacy and charm in a remote setting away from the hustle and bustle of the island.

Les Ilets de la Plage is a quiet, understated resort with villas that are simple, but elegantly decorated and very comfortable. All villas have full kitchen facilities, air conditioning in the bedrooms, satellite TV, Wi-Fi throughout, a daily maid service and a daily delivery of fresh breads and pastries right to the door. It’s the best of both worlds – the privacy of your own villa with hotel services, concierge and facilities on hand. The beach cabana by the central pool has complimentary coffee and tea available all morning. Guests love the little bit of community that the pool area offers, and guests often gather to sunbathe, chat, and even enjoy a cocktail or two in the evenings. Les Ilets is great for families too as some villas have multiple bedrooms and different configurations. The area itself is very quiet and while children will love the beach, there’s also a huge variety of activities the resort offers.

New for 2018: Les Ilets de la Plage is adding a brand new “studio apartment” featuring a living room, fully equipped kitchen, dining area, bedroom with en-suite bathroom, and a balcony with sea view. Slated for completion in the Fall of 2018, stay tuned for more details!
