Nestled in a tropical park between Marigot Bay and the Grand Cul de Sac, the Guanahani is in an exceptional location at the tip of the island of Saint Barthelemy. The warm and vividly colored bungalows of this jewel of luxury and refinement are in the midst of lush vegetation. The interiors of the 33 rooms and 35 sites combine sobriety, elegance and modern comfort. The cotton drapes blend in perfectly with the contemporary pieces of furniture and the rare parquet wood on which they rest. All the suites have private swimming pools, and the rooms possess individual terraces with uninterrupted views of the sea. Ideal for unforgettable moments of relaxation, the Guanahani offers guests upscale facilities, remarkable service, gastronomic cuisine and a unique spa. As a member of the prestigious Leading Hotels of the World list, the Guanahani can be summed up in a few words: elegance, discreet luxury and comfort at the edge of the water.

Saint Barthelemy, a preserved island

Although Saint Barthelemy has experienced a number of different influences, its nature has remained unspoiled. Discovered by Christopher Columbus, occupied by the Knights of the Order of Malta and then by the Swedish, the island has nevertheless always had an important French presence including descendants from Brittany, Vendée, Normandy and Anjou. Thanks to its Eden like décor, Saint Barthelemy has always attracted wealthy and luxury seeking tourists. The Rockefeller family launched this movement by purchasing land here. Since then, thanks to the island’s refusal to succumb to the temptation of mass hotel industry expansion, Saint Barthelemy has welcomed the rich and famous from all over the world. Its discretion and the quality of its hospitality have made it a favorite with a jet set in search of authenticity.

A hotel that know the meaning of the world “welcome”.

Guanahani, in the language of the Arawak Indians, the first inhabitants of the island, means “welcome”, and the word comes immediately to mind upon discovering this four star hotel consisting of bungalows cleverly laid out in the midst of lush vegetation over a more than six-hectare property. The hotel’s residences reflect the influences of the island: Creole and French. The exterior of the wood cottages with sculpted friezes are covered with warm pastel colors. The interior is sober, comfortable and very elegant. Cotton drapery complements the contemporary furniture placed on a parquet floor of precious wood. All modern comforts are discreetly present including air conditioning, TV and internet connections.

Each suite has its own private swimming pool, and the rooms have individual terraces with an uninterrupted view of the sea. The immediate proximity of the beaches enable the hotel to offer a wide range of services including boat excursions, deep sea diving classes, wind surfing, jet ski and so many others that it’s impossible not to find something to one’s liking. The hotel also possesses a private beach bar and the Indigo restaurant situated on the beach itself. There is also another restaurant, the Bartolomeo inside the hotel offering cuisine inspired by France, Japan and Italy, and served in a lush tropical garden.

For a moment of pure relaxation, the spa proposes a range of dream like massages including Indian, shiatsu and ayurvedic to mention just a few. And in the meantime, children are looked after in the Kindergarten for the younger ones and the Junior Cub for the older ones. Both spaces provide activities all day long and a special lunch at the Indigo. Hôtel Guanahani & Spa is an all year round resort in the midst of bougainvilleas and coconut palms.

The island is home to Eugenie Blanchard who from May 2008 to November 4th, 2010 was the oldest living French person, and who became the oldest living person in the world on May 2nd, 2010.
