Leave It to St. Barts to Drain LA of Its Celebs This Season
While most of us will likely spend the holidays schlepping through snow to the homes of our various friends and relatives, many in Hollywood are gearing up for their own holiday tradition of hitting the surf and sand on St. Barts.
The secluded Caribbean island is a true hotspot for international celebs looking to get away during the winter, partly because there are only about 20 hotels on the entire island, and most have only a few rooms so their famous patrons get plenty of individual attention. Of course there's always house rentals, but in case you're cool with dropping four digits per night on many, we'll leave those to the A-list.
Last season, Salma Hayek, Fergie, Josh Duhamel, Ashton Kutcher, Jason Statham, Ellen DeGeneres, Portia De Rossi and Courteney Cox formed just a dusting of the stars who trading L.A. for St. Barts, and this year even more famous faces are expected to descend on the island.
So where do the rich and famous stay while vacationing in St. Barts? Le Toiny, Le Sereno and the Eden Rock are all the best bets. Someone is always doing something gossip-worthy poolside, and a junior suite at the exclusive Le Toiny starts around $1000 a night, while the vacation packages at Le Sereno start around $650 a night.
