I came to La Banane with a group of 13 guests for a birthday party and was so pleasantly surprised upon arrival !! La Banane is an intimate and charming property in Lorient. It is run by the incredible Benjamin, who has created a chic, comfortable and private environment, while also supplying guests with all the materials they will need... More

La Banane is visually charming, low key, friendly, and unpretentious- all things that can be elusive on St. Barths. The design aesthetic is very cool, with colors, pieces and ambiance that is pleasing, interesting, and cozy. A more intimate and welcoming poolside Inn may be hard to find. Sadly, it is it's open air charm that can create problems. You... More

I visited La Banane with my partner to celebrate my 40th birthday. Once decided on SBH I did a lot of research online and asking friends and La Banane seemed the best option, however I decided to contact a couple of hotels aside from them. The team at La Banane was the first to reply, almost immediately. From that initial... More

We stayed in La Banane for a full week in May 09. Next to that St Barts is the best place in the Caribbean, La Banane is the best on St Barts. Best if you like smaller, more intimate places with modern design. Breakfast is served every morning, the bar is open every evening and for lunch and dinner there... More

I stayed with my husband and two children at this hotel for 3 nights of a 6 night trip to St. Barths/St. Martin. As soon as we arrived via their hotel transfer we were warmly greeted by the hotel manager with some water. Since the hotel is very small, we were literally treated like royalty. Every morning the manager would... More

Well, its St. Barts right? Everything has to be wonderful! When we last went in 2005 we stayed in a villa in 2005 at Pointe Milou. This time we said we will try a hotel, but stay away from the more expensive ones - e.g. Eden Rock. We discovered the review on Trip Advisor on La Banane, and I can... More

I stayed at La Banane last March and I had a fabulous time there. It is the most charming hotel with attentive and friendly staff who will go out of their way to make your stay special. The pool is wonderfully glamorous and relaxing and the morning breakfasts are a delight! I would highly recommend this hotel.

My wife and I had a lovely experience at La Banane. The room was tasteful, the palm tree filled grounds secluded and sophisticated. I felt that I was in the South of France. The staff was attentive and warm. Breakfasts are delightful by the pool. As to service, when my Mac computer failed I was escorted by a staff member,... More

Firstly I would like to point out that I was very decieved about the negative comments being made in this site about the hotel! Fortunely we decided to keep our booking and spend a week there. Of course the appreciation of an hotel is mostly a question of individual taste, personality etc..For the price, this hotel offers an excellent price/quality... More
