Spring is just around the corner and it’s time to discover new horizons. This month Vamp inspires you to venture out of the cold neighbouring countries and discover the hidden gems of the Caribbean. Islands even smaller than our little native rock, full of breathtaking tropical scenery, wildlife adventures and pure relaxation
1. Throughout the property you can enjoy beautiful tropical gardens shaded by giant palm fronds and banana tree leaves, cacti, mango trees and flowering bougainvillea which conspire to create an intoxicating and intimate atmosphere. The refreshing decor stays true to the island’s exotic charm with hints of St. Barth’s French colonial history. Each of the 21 bungalows and villas offers a distinct style, an effortless ease and calming ambience, giving the guests a luxurious feeling as though they are on their own private island. End your long days by the beach with a soothing after-sun treatment in the spa or an aperitif at the Rum Bar, fully stocked with the best Caribbean Rum and fine cigars. Villa Marie is a true invitation to relaxation in a Dolce Vita ambience.
