Preserving St. Barth, Christopher Hotel continues to contribute to coral restoration project

The ARTIREEF project strives to protect the 38 different species of coral at Pointe Milou’s reef.

POINTE MILOU, SAINT BARTHELEMY – Nestled above the rocky shoreline on the magnificent bay of Pointe Milou, The Christopher Hotel has long been a refuge for those in-the-know on St. Barth for its understated elegance and amazing sunset views. One of the last remaining family-owned properties on the island, it continues to exude true St. Barth charm and personality. For 2023, The Christopher, with its lasting connection to the French Riviera, is preparing for another unforgettable season with new creations by France’s two Michelin starred Chef, Arnaud Faye, and elevated on-site wellness experiences at the Caribbean’s only Sisley Spa. Its commitment to guest excellence in 2023 is matched only by its sustainability efforts as the island’s only Green Globe Certified Hotel and its commitment to preserving its coral reef.

For the second year in a row, The Christopher is the first and only hotel on St. Barth to be awarded the Green Globe Environmental Certification, recognizing its commitment to the environment, local community, and well-being of its employees. A tenement of the hotel, efforts to make green choices is implemented throughout with a focus on reducing water and energy consumption, decreasing pollution, contributing to local development, as well as preserving local biodiversity.

The hotel continues to contribute to the development of the ARTIREEF project, which strives to protect the 38 different species of coral at Pointe Milou’s reef. Located a few dozen meters offshore from The Christopher, the project utilizes the Biorock Process which uses metal structures with electric currents coming from the hotel to grow new coral life. This new coral growth will flourish into beautiful underwater artwork with structures designed after the likes of the Eiffel Tower and Egyptian pyramids. By planting species that are endemic to the Lesser Antilles and protecting the coral against invasive exotic species, they hope to preserve the biodiversity of the local flora.
