An internship in the only Palace in the Caribbean
Welcome to the heart of the only establishment in the world to hold the Palace distinction outside the borders of France. It is here, in this sumptuous Caribbean setting, the Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France, that Aude Adélaïde carries out her internship at the end of the 1st year of hotel management at the Luxury Hotelschool hotel school.
Booking agent until June, Aude will then be housekeeper from July to August. “As an Ambassador, my main mission is to convey the House's Values by perfectly mastering the excellence of service required by the world leader in luxury. My goal is to enrich myself as much as possible by accumulating knowledge related to the sector, to optimize my network and, above all, to satisfy customers!”
With its 61 rooms and its villa of 650 square meters, the Palace is distinguished by the plurality of landscapes between mountains, sea and sky that the architect Jacques Grange knew how to perfectly highlight by addressing a comfort and a refined, chic and tropical atmosphere. The establishment also has a Guerlain Spa and two restaurants (La Case and La Cabane) designed by the Michelin-starred chef Jean Imbert.
“This real immersion in the professional environment is essential in addition to the hotel school courses at the Luxury Hotelschool, in order to fully understand the hierarchical and administrative functioning, customer and salary expectations as well as the financial challenges of a hotel establishment. In the field, I have already been confronted with scenarios addressed in class. That makes us better prepared and well trained.”
