Saint Barthélemy, or St. Bart’s for short, is an island in the Caribbean archipelago that includes Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and Barbados. In the midst of these islands is St. Bart’s, a French island that offers high-style Parisian vacationing in a lush, tropical setting. For the ultimate in pampering and relaxation, Spa Sisley is a must visit. The spa is operated by the makers of Sisley cosmetics in France, and their offerings are just as luxurious.
Spa Sisley is located within the Hotel Christopher, a luxury hotel and villas on a private bay on the northeast end of the island. Set amongst rustling palms and with a western view of Caribbean sunsets over the bay, Hotel Christopher is a quiet retreat that allows visitors to enjoy all the sensory delights of St. Bart’s. Spa Sisley makes the most of this special view with private, outdoor massage areas that overlook the white sands and blue ocean.
Spa Sisley offers unique phyto-aromatic treatments that combine massage techniques from around the world. The treatments include aromatherapy oils made from the essential oils and extracts of healing plants. The most famous of the phyto-aromatic specialties are the facials, and with 11 different treatments available for the face alone, the spa tailors the experience to the unique needs of each client’s skin. In addition to their famous facials, Spa Sisley also offers massage, body scrubs, manicures, waxing, hair treatments, and yoga.
After a rejuvenating day at the spa, guests at the Hotel Christopher can enjoy a swim in the infinity pool overlooking the bay or work out in the hotel’s private gym. There are also two restaurant choices on site. Upscale Taino has gourmet entrees by French chef Jean-Baptiste Piard. Squab and foie gras, squid risotto and lobster ravioli are just some of the delicious dishes served daily. For more casual mid-day fare, Mango offers chilled soups and salads, fresh seafood and a range of delectable desserts.
With so much luxury packed into one place, it’s hard to imagine ever leaving the grounds of Hotel Christopher after enjoying a day at Spa Sisley. Whether Hotel Christopher is the ultimate destination or just one stop among the many excellent restaurants and beaches in St. Bart’s, a visit to Spa Sisley is sure to please anyone seeking to experience incredible relaxation for both body and spirit.
