Overlooking Anse de Marigot and Anse de Grand Cul-de-Sac from its peninsula perch on St. Barts' northeastern shore, Le Guanahani entices visitors with its pastel decor and plush cotton linens. Cottages range in size – they are able to accommodate couples and families – and feature hardwood floors, plush furniture and private terraces complete with gardens. Guests say that this is a great resort for travelers with children: Activities like snorkeling, windsurfing and Jet Ski tours cater to all ages. Parents in need of some R&R can retreat to the Spa by Clarins while the youngsters participate in the hotel's kid-oriented programs. At the end of the day, sit down to family dinner at Bartolomeo or Indigo, the hotel's restaurants. And as a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, this property participates in the Leaders Club rewards program. Note: The hotel was impacted by the 2017 hurricanes and is expected to reopen in 2019.

Critic Reviews


The beachfront Hotel Guanahani is located in the Grand Cul-de-Sac part of the island on the northeast side. Grand Cul-de-Sac has that upscale, resort-like vibe. The beach is lined by high-end bistros with fabulous views and water sports have become a popular pastime.



Thoughtful custom furnishings, exposed beams and fresh Caribbean interior palettes put the spacious, residentially styled guest rooms and signature suites on the best dressed list.



Anyone who says bright color isn’t a balm for the soul hasn’t been here. The garden air smells of flowers mixed with sea salt, and small turtles occasionally amble onto the path to eat a fallen blossom.



On an island of world-class resorts, Guanahani manages to maintain ridiculously high standards while setting a breezily unpretentious tone—you will feel warmly welcome here.
