From the French Riviera to the Hawaiian Islands, we rounded up a few of the world’s very best beach retreats. These private villas feature breathtaking locations, unbeatable views, and special amenities you won’t find anywhere else (unlimited Patrón tequila, anyone?).
The stunning Villas at Le Sereno are located on the east end of St. Barts along 600 feet of beach on picturesque Grand Cul-de-Sac, a turquoise cove protected from the ocean waves by a coral reef.
Each Le Sereno villa has four bedrooms, spacious living areas, expansive terraces, a garden, private parking, and an oversized pool with magnificent views of Grand Cul de Sac lagoon and the Caribbean Sea. Guests also receive complimentary access to two MINI Cooper cars, daily breakfast in the on-site gourmet restaurant, and full use of the beach club.
