There's nothing like the Caribbean. And the Eastern Caribbean islands are a prime playground getaway for the rich and famous. World's Hottest Hotels takes you to the best cribs on the best islands in the Eastern Caribbean.
First stop is St Bart's. Known as one of the most hottest and ritziest islands in the Caribbean, St. Bart's has two hotels on our Eastern Caribbean hot list. The first luxury hotel ever to grace the 8 square-mile island of St. Bart's is Eden Rock overlooking popular St Jean beach. The Eden Rock Hotel takes up an entire rocky reef jutting in to the St Jean Bay. There are 34 cottages rooms scattered about the rock, some are carved directly into the rock. The cottages are a hodgepodge outside, but inside they're all different and equally amazing. Some are classic, others are modern with bold Caribbean colors throughout. Each cottage has an enormous bathroom with bathtubs big enough to swim in. Eden Rock has long been popular amongst celebrities. The Greta Garbo suite, named for the famous actress who was a regular here, is dripping with opulent 1930s art deco style. This room is hard to come by and is usually booked months in advance. Eden Rock is an unforgettable, classic St Bart's experience.
A few miles from Eden Rock is the Hotel Guanahani, a 16-acre resort in the middle of the peninsula. Guanahani's 71 bungalows are traditional creole-style with gingerbread trim, painted with every color imaginable. The insides are bright, simple, and elegant. Each has a private deck and pool. The best suite is La Villa, which has no walls inside giving an open and airy feeling. Guanahani's restaurants are right on the beach and have an ever changing menu. Guanahani is a once and a lifetime kind of place.
