Hôtel Barrière Le Carl Gustaf Saint-Barth

Le Carl Gustaf, Saint-Barth, Press Kit, Groupe Barrière


It is on the French island of St Barths in the Caribbean, a long-haul flight away from Europe, that Barrière has opened its latest project – a 5-star hotel that oozes luxury, elegance and French-style charm. Here, on a gentle promontory that gives the hotel the appearance of the bridge and prow of a yacht at anchor, the Hotel Barrière Le Carl Gustaf and its 23 rooms, suites and bungalows (including a penthouse suite) lie moored in the Caribbean, offering luxurious accommodation in the land of the trade winds. 

“Le Carl” is a property that welcomes friends. Its own friends. Amid tropical elegance that creates an ambience of wellbeing, relaxation and letting go the perfect place for a romantic holiday, or for spending time with family and friends, enjoying the simple pleasures of being with your loved ones.

Within the century-old walls and terraces of Le Carl Gustaf, designers Gilles & Boissier have created a charming ambience where filtered sunlight creates ever-changing reflections of light and shade. Simple fabrics and natural materials such as wood and stone add to the appeal, as does the hotel’s setting on a low hill which stands above the stunning landscapes of sea and sky like a tropical “altana” roof terrace.

Everything is close by: the idyllic Shell Beach and its superb Le Shellona restaurant, the perfect setting in which to unwind, is just five minutes’ walk away; the lively port, with its tranquil alleyways and romantic, sophisticated boutiques, and the natural sea pools of Grand Fond and Petit-Cul de Sac. Not forgetting the renowned Le Fouquet’s restaurant which has made the journey from Paris to offer guests the delicious and exciting cuisine created by 3-star Michelin chef Pierre Gagnaire. On St Barths, the Hotel Barrière* Le Carl Gustaf offers true Caribbean-style luxury.
