The Hotel Guanahani is comprised of quirky cabins sprinkled along a forested hillside, heading right down to the sea. It is not uncommon to see a turtle crossing the road or to find a giant iguana on your doorstep. This hotel definitely has a more traditional Caribbean feel and a campy vibe. I am excited to see more!

If you love the beach and you are heading to St Barts don’t look further than Isle de France. This boutique 39 room hotel is a collection of beach front rooms in the main building and a collection of garden bungalows, suites and villas in the back.
The best feature (aside from the incredible service and helpful staff) is the beautiful beach. The sand is so soft and gently slopes toward the sea – you have no choice but to go into the bright blue sea. And don’t forget the great lunches! Enjoy a delicious tuna tartar with your feet in the sand as you watch a fashion show displaying the gorgeous sundries from the boutique.
This is the view from my room – I could stare at this all day!
I just arrived in St. Barts and it was the easiest flight of my life!
If you don’t mind small planes – this was an 8 seater – the service couldn’t have been better! I took Tradewinds into the island but that wasn’t even the best part. I landed in San Juan and a representative from Rome International met met at the gate. He took my luggage ticket and went to baggage claim to get my suitcase while I had a drink and checked emails. Then he came to get me when my flight was ready and I walked right onto the plane where I enjoyed complimentary wine. An hour later I was on the beach at my hotel.
If your travel agent offers VIP meet and greet service – take it! Or find one who does. A-hem I know a great one!
