Still looking for a nice holiday vacation spot? Well, we don’t know about “nice”, but we do have a superb location to suggest: the Hotel La Banane on the gorgeous St. Barts, in the Caribbean. Nine separate bungalows make up the luxurious hotel, which is set in the heart of a coconut grove. With a confidential address, this is the perfect place for the rich and glamorous to unwind in total privacy.
The nine suites are surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens with jasmine, hibiscus, frangipanis and other exotic plants. They all have their own private terraces and enough room to offer perfect comfort at all times. There are five “extra” bungalows that flaunt 30 sq. m. (323 sq. ft.) of space and bathrooms that open to a private patio or a garden.
The other four bungalows fall under the “deluxe” category, boasting 35 to 40 sq. m. (376 to 430 sq. ft.) of space. They too have bathrooms with access to gardens or patios and they all have private covered terraces with outdoor lounges. You can find them amidst the coconuts or facing the pool.
Recently renovated by its new owners, the hotel has a lovely modern interior design and each room features unusual works by architects and designers like Le Corbusier, Serge Mouille, Charlotte Perriand, Pierre Jeanneret, Juliette Derel and Jean Royère . Everything here – the decors, the services, the gardens – inspire a sense of luxury and wellness.
