St Barts beach hotels occupy some of the best island locations and offer guests a position only a hop, skip, and a jump to the warm ocean water where a large array of island activities await. With most of the island encompassed by coral reefs, snorkeling and diving is among the leader in things to do when staying at St Barts beachfront hotels. Boating is another of the most favored activities, evident by the dozens of yachts anchored offshore to enjoy sunbathing, socializing, and swimming. The beaches of St Barts also exhibit a pure quality, and with such underwhelming development you can easily feel a million miles away from everything.
Emeraude Hotel is one of the St Barts beachfront hotels featuring a unique choice in seaside lodging. Four guest suites, 24 bungalows, 2 self-contained cottages, and 1 villa comprise accommodations that create two perfect semi-circles flanked by coconut palms, oleander, and bougainvillea. Well-stocked kitchenettes arm aspiring chefs with everything they need while the private terrace serves as an alfresco dining room. Located directly on lively St Jean Beach, guests enjoy easy access to restaurants and cafes, shopping, and the Gustavia Harbor. The private gardens inspire a feeling of remoteness while the main dining area connects guests if they wish.
Savvy and glamorous, Tom Beach Hotel (pictured) also sits on St Jean Beach near the bustling village. The boutique hotspot is one of the top St Barts beach hotels, attracting both guests from around the world and locals who favor the hotel restaurant cuisine and sociable atmosphere.

A canopied king-size bed, mini-bar, flat-screen TV, and private safe are standard amenities inside guest suites.
