Travel talks: Five minutes with Luis Contreras, owner of Sereno Hotels

Travel talks: Five minutes with Luis Contreras, owner of Sereno Hotels

Le Sereno St Barths

What makes St Barths special?

With luxurious hotels and villas in both Lake Como, and St Barths, one of the best in the Caribbean, the owner of Sereno Hotels Luis Contreras shares his thoughts on the two most significant yachting destinations and why we should all travel.

1. What makes St Barths special?

St. Barths is not only special, it’s unique. Its very distinctive history makes it different from all the other (beautiful) Caribbean islands. There simply isn’t anything else similar to St Barths. The people, the culture, the nature and our guests. It’s a magical combination.

We were lucky enough to have learned about an old, half-dilapidated hotel on the island called the Sereno Beach Hotel. A hotel created many years earlier by a Mr Sereno and the actor Lino Ventura, who were good friends from the golden age of St. Tropez, and decided to bring some of that magic to the Caribbean.

When we saw the site and experienced the island, we immediately fell in love and decided we wanted to do something special. We were then very fortunate that Mr Christian Liaigre agreed to embark with us on the renovation of the hotel and helped us create the beautiful Le Sereno, St Barthélemy.
