St. Barth’s most irresistible private enclave, Le Guanahani is spread out over 18 secluded tropical acres on its own peninsula. Within this captivating landscape, 67 vibrantly hued guest cottages are scattered along garden paths that wind through lush bougainvillea, hibiscus, and palms beside the sweeping beaches and reef-protected lagoon. The island’s finest boutique hotel offers two pools, a restorative Spa by Clarins, a choice of two beaches, a full suite of water sports, two restaurants, a fitness center, flood-lit tennis courts, and engaging children’s programs. One can bask in the sunshine at a choice of two beaches, explore a colorful underwater world on a diving excursion, enjoy exhilarating kite surfing or venture out to explore the enchanting surrounds of St. Barth. At this casually elegant private retreat, freshly prepared, refined cuisine is presented with unobtrusive service in two signature al fresco settings—the sultry gardens of Bartolomeo or poolside at Indigo with stunning views of the reef-protected bay.
