Le Carl Gustaf has created something exceptional to ensure your next holiday will be fully focused on beauty and wellbeing. Its name is “Escapade Détente”, and it’s the perfect way to remove all traces of a frantic year of hard work.
Now that all your files have been dealt with, you can close your desk’s drawers with a clear conscience! The kids are off doing their own thing, so at long last, you have time to think of you and only you, with the sole aim of recharging your batteries – via solar power, of course!
To do this in style, you’ll need to hop across the Atlantic, where you can indulge in the tropical sunshine and lifestyle of the Caribbean Eden of St Barths. The Barrière Group offers guests the opportunity to put their day-to-day life on hold, enjoying a glorious stay at Le Carl Gustaf, one of the best properties on the island. Imagine being cocooned by exotically scented luxury in one of the 21 guestrooms, suites and lofts, plus one stunning villa, and revelling in an ambience that is as rare as it is elegant.
A taste of paradise
To ensure that its guests enjoy an effective (a reinvigorating anti-stress break) and hugely pleasurable (a luxurious and exotic stay in paradise), this 5-star St Barths hotel has created a new package called the “Escapade Détente”. The first thing that stands out is its price – from just 1,570 euros per night for two based on accommodation in a junior suite with a sea-view terrace, where they’ll experience optimal comfort and incredible views! Located on a hill above Gustavia, Le Carl Gustaf overlooks the famous bay of its island capital, where visual pleasures are just the start.
And what about the other benefits of this stunning package, all of which are completely focused on your wellbeing? Firstly, return transfers between the airport and the hotel by private car. It’s a simple detail that adds a serene beginning and end to your stay and a genuine touch of class. Then, it’s breakfast on your private terrace or at Le Fouquet’s Saint-Barth, the younger Caribbean sibling of the famous brasserie on the Champs-Élysées.
Every morning, this gourmet treat will provide the perfect start to the day and gives you an appetite (in every sense of the word) for the pleasures of life in the Tropics. And, let’s not forget the two included sun-loungers at the Shellona Beach Club, fronting this 5-star property’s private beach and one of the most famous stretches of coast in this part of the world. Here, enjoy the beach club’s heady mix of indulgent idleness and hedonism along a pristine carpet of sand and powdery mother of pearl from the thousands of shells that have washed up here.
Le Carl Gustaf’s Escapade Détente package definitely lives up to its name thanks to its “health and beauty” cocktail created by a renowned wellbeing expert: the Diane Barrière Spa. This rejuvenating “cure” combines four different ingredients. It starts with an exclusive check-up of your skin via the Diagnostic Skin Instant Lab technology developed by Biologique Recherche, the spa’s partner laboratory, which checks levels of hydration, elasticity, pigmentation and sebum.
All of the data is then fully analysed to determine your specific needs. The personalised treatment that follows is incredibly effective and long-lasting – in just one hour, it will brighten, freshen up and regenerate your skin!
The Escapade Détente package contains two additional bonuses to make the most of the treatment’s benefits. One of these takes place at the spa, where a pampering “wellbeing” session completes your beauty treatment with a range of options that focus on the hair, feet, hands, eyes and face – the choice is yours! The other is at breakfast at Le Fouquet’s, with a special Fouquet’s detox juice that combines pineapple, mango, lime, ginger and cucumber to provide a refreshing zing to the start of your day!
This extraordinary ‘Rest & Relaxation’ package is available from 1,570 euros per night for two guests staying in a Junior Suite with Sea-View Terrace. It includes: return transfers between the airport and hotel, breakfasts at the Le Fouquet’s Saint-Barth restaurant, one detox juice (per booking per person), complimentary access to Shellona Beach (including sun-lounger and cushion) and the hotel’s fitness room, one Diagnostic Skin Instant Lab analysis (per booking per person), one personalised 1-hour beauty treatment (per booking per person), plus a wellbeing session offering a choice of five options.
