Perched along the verdant hills of the Colombier coastline, Villa Marie Saint-Barth feels as if you’re staying in your most stylish friend’s beach home—and you sort of are. French interior designer Jocelyn Sibuet has chosen to decorate her family’s hotel with the bones of West Indies architectural style and a pretty punch of international flourishes from her travels.
Yes, the big news for 2017 is Villa Marie, which is taking guests in Saint-Barth, a French overseas collectivity. The hotel comprises 21 bungalows and three villas with whitewashed wood-panelled walls and flamboyant splashes of modern art. It's close to Colombier beach and has high-quality spa and rum bar.
