Villa Nina St Barths
Greta Garbo, was popularly known as “The Divine” for her haughty attitude in front of the cameras. This myth from Hollywood’s Golden Age really knew how to enjoy life. She spent long periods at Eden Rock, a magnificent beachfront bolthole, exuding an unbelievable French joie de vivre, at the heart of St. Barths. Swimming totally naked in the pool and spending the afternoons drinking Champagne with colleagues like Robert Mitchum and Howard Hughes, were her favorite pastimes here.
Eccentric local adventurer Remy de Haenen built this luxurious retreat set on a rocky promontory, surrounded by white-sand beaches, crystal clear waters and a beautiful coral reef. Essentially he created his own island-chic and relaxed atmosphere.
Today the resort remains intact and is part of Oetker Collection’s, a hallmark of excellence. Villa Nina is a beautiful private villa in this magnificent resort. Its doors open onto the beach of St. Jean and is now available for your own use and enjoyment.
Waking up in this whimsical villa, surrounded by its outstanding art collection, composed of original paintings, photographs and lithographs, will make you feel like a real movie star. The views from the Suite are no less impressive. Open the windows to feel the Caribbean breeze and contemplate how the lush green gardens seamlessly blend with the ocean beyond, enhancing this feeling of peace and tranquility.
Mornings in St. Barths are all about treating yourself and relaxing. A morning soaking up the sun, laying on the sun loungers by the pool is the perfect plan. Before lunch take a dip into the translucent calm waters of St. Jeans’ bay to explore around the rich coral reef full of wild sea life.
Late in the afternoon, before the sun drops, get into your Mini Cooper to discover the island, sophisticated boutiques, art galleries and St. Jean’s fun bars are waiting for you! The perfect warm-up before heading to Nikki Beach for a memorable night out surrounded by the jet-set, drinking Dom Pérignon and dancing at the most exclusive beach club on the island.
Isn’t this the best place to make your sunniest dreams come true?
