The Oetker Collection is an inspiring selection of masterpiece hotels around the world. Each property is one of a kind and represents the finest of traditional European hospitality. Here are just two of my favorites. The Eden-Roc in St. Barths is surrounded by beautiful white sandy beaches, only a few steps away from all the suites and villas. All of the rooms have a view of the beautiful clear blue sea and are individually designed by Jane Matthews. Both the Sand Bar and Remy Bar are by the famous Jean George Vongerichten. The location is also absolutely perfect. It’s close to the charming village where you’ll find lots of shops and restaurants. It’s also not far from Gustavia where all the luxury shops and quaint little cafes are located – my favorite! The first time I stayed at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, it became no surprise to me why it attracts all the Hollywood A-listers and why it has such a glamorous reputation. On the southern tip of the Cap d’Antibes, the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc has no equal. It’s a place to enjoy panoramic views from any of the many chic restaurants and the pool bar, which is a must to take in the sunsets and to have a drink. The service is unparalleled to anything one could imagine. It’s definitely pricey, but it’s always fully booked and for a good reason – they deliver.
