Today, we are in St Barts, Caribbean or Saint Barthélemy in French and St. Barts in English. The indigenous people called the island Ouanalao. Let me give you a bird’s eyeview of the island. St. Barts, is a volcanic island fully surrounded by shallow reefs, it’s capital is Gustavia, which also contains the main harbor to the island. The island is a popular tourist destination during the winter holiday season.
When we mention the islands of the Caribbean, what comes into our mind immediately it is a 'playground of the rich and famous. Clearly, St. Barts is no average playground. It is, in fact, one giant theme park for the filthy rich and famous or we call them in short glitterati. It’s no surprise that Saint-Barthélemy is the preferred retreat of the spoiled and self-assured, this beachy island fulfills every fantasy of a vacation in paradise. Perfectly positioned bays are backdrops for fancy-pants restaurants, rolling hills demand rambling villas, and the Gustavia harbor is simply ideal for all the extreme huge yachts or megayachts. And the celebs who have holidayed in St Barts? Well, it’s probably easier to list who hasn't, buddy! Celebrities have stressful lives, and therefore, they need constant pampering at the exclusive Guanahani Hotel & Spa which offers indulgent week-long treatments.
Well, what do you say, mate?
