The first and original global luxury beach club brand, Nikki Beach, unveils the newly renovated location following the destruction caused by Hurricane Irma
Global luxury lifestyle and hospitality brand Nikki Beach Worldwide is set to reopen Nikki Beach Saint Barth. The Caribbean beachfront property, which originally opened in 2002, is debuting its newly renovated 295-square-meter location on March 30th.
Following the aftermath of Hurricane Irma last September, the Nikki Beach team began to clean the property and help local neighbours clear the beaches, streets and villas. Nikki Beach’s staff members worked hard to bring back the beloved Nikki Beach Saint Barth property, so guests would be able to return to the location as soon as possible.
“A longtime staple on the island, Nikki Beach is proud to be part of a hardworking, courageous Saint Barth community, who all joined forces over the past several months to rehabilitate the island,” says Jack Penrod, Founder and Owner of Nikki Beach Worldwide. “We feel so lucky to have such a dedicated team and greatly appreciate all of the hard work they put into getting the location up and running again. Nikki Beach Saint Barth is coming back stronger than ever, just in time for the brands 20th anniversary.”
With a newly built outdoor restaurant, bar, sushi bar, boutique, kitchen and rotisserie, Nikki Beach Saint Barth is an inviting space for Nikki Beach clients to share great memories with friends and family. Nikki Beach Saint Barth showcases the signature Nikki Beach look and feel with an inviting design of all white with wood accents.
A large teepee, a Nikki Beach signature element, welcomes guests as they approach the venue. Guests will enter through an open-air lounge, an inviting space with couches and other seating options, for soaking in the view and having a refreshing cocktail.
The main dining area sits on top of a teak wood deck, while the sushi bar and additional tables are on anti-slip gres cerame tile. A Serge Ferrari shade structure covers the venue and ceiling fans will keep guests cool as they have lunch. Both the awning and deck will be removable for ease when the venue breaks down each year for future hurricane seasons. The original red roof structure will continue to hover over the space and a comfortable beach setting with sun beds and sofas for lounging will sit oceanside.
The top of the service bar, central bar and sushi bar were constructed from oak with sides made from rough-sawn cedar layered in vertical panels. The central square-shaped bar can seat up to 10 guests and the sushi bar up to six guests.
The restaurant features natural colours, fabrics and elements that all play into the barefoot luxury vibe. The globally-inspired menu incorporates approachable cuisine that is healthful, beautifully presented and prepared with simplicity in mind. Guests will enjoy the brand’s world-famous sushi boats, truffle pizza, chicken satay, tartares, fresh spring rolls and more.
“The Nikki Beach family expects guests to feel very much at home at the new property. Most of the brand’s former staff will be returning to spread happiness and participate in our ‘Celebration of Life’ mantra,” says Lucia Penrod, CEO and CMO of Nikki Beach Worldwide. “Our guests will enjoy the hospitality and entertainment Nikki Beach is famous for.”
The DJ booth is centred on the far-east side of the deck, equipped with a FrenchFlair Audio sound system, which was installed to optimize the perception of the music by the customers while minimizing any environmental nuisances. DJs Philippe Paris, Patris Gero, Jerome Barthelemy and Stephane Roche will be spinning alongside saxophonist Jimmy Sax upon opening. As always, the music will include funky and happy house tunes that encourage guests to unwind and sing along.
Nikki Beach Saint Barth will also continue to host Amazing Sundays, the brand’s signature party that features live music and exciting entertainment. Known for its star-studded clientele and New Year’s Eve parties, Nikki Beach Saint Barth has wowed with performances by Mariah Carey, John Legend and Beyoncé.
With an inviting new layout, the Nikki Beach Lifestyle Boutique carries branded polo shirts and t-shirts, luxury designer clothing and swimwear for men and women, as well as towels, hats, beach bags, accessories, music and more.
Dinghy and valet service will be available, too.
Nikki Beach Saint Barth is open daily for lunch from 11:30 am to 7 pm. For more information, please visit http://www.nikkibeach.com/stbarth/ or follow the location on Instagram and Facebook at @NikkiBeachSaintBarth.
