Hôtel Carl Gustaf, Gustavia
Tel: 590 590 29 79 00
Concierge.com's insider take:
You'll pay for the privacy and million-dollar view from this glam property, which sits on a hilltop in the chic capital of Gustavia. Each of the 14 harbor-facing units has its own private terrace and plunge pool, marble floors, tiled bath, dual-jet shower, and kitchenette. Everything looks shiny and well cared for, too, as rooms were renovated in the summer of 2006. The restaurant serves excellent French fare, which you'll work off getting back to your room along a steep wooden staircase. Or head to Shell Beach, about a minute's walk away, which is a choice spot for sunsets or libations at Do Brazil.
Closed September through early October.
