First and foremost, your safety and well-being are always our top priority. While St. Bart’s is officially a Covid-19 free territory as of May 11, 2020, we will remain vigilant upon reopening and are placing even more of a focus on the details that matter so you can be at ease when visiting us. Beginning this Summer, we will increase the sanitation and hygiene protocol following the guidelines from CDC, WHO, and St. Bart’s Territory.
Not only is this move better for the environment and supports our sustainability efforts, but it will also help to avoid unnecessary high-touch surfaces. Our check-in and check-out process will be handled seamlessly electronically, and our food and beverage menus will be available electronically as well.
Need to cancel or postpone? No worries. We’ve implemented a very flexible booking policy so you can feel comfortable in your future decisions to stay with us. You may cancel your booking up to 10 days before your arrival date in the summer with zero penalties and rebook all stays up to 12-months after original travel date.
