Karibuni Lodge is not a full service resort. There is no restaurant or bar on premises. No shopping, spa, organized activities or managers cocktail mixers. And for some, this is a very good thing. It is an oasis of tranquility and romance in a quiet residential area. Think luxury private villa or chic B&B. The suites are spacious and impeccable.... More

My wife and I visited here back in May and thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The Karibuni Lodge is amazing, you will not be disappointed. The room, the views of Pinel island all were exceptional.....but most of all Celia. She greeted us when we arrived a little late (because we did get lost). She was genuinely concerned about us which... More

My wife and I just returned from a wonderful stay at Karibuni Lodge. We stayed here as the first part of our trip which ended in Anguilla (Viceroy) which will also be reviewed. Firstly I'd like to say our experience at Karibuni was exceptional in every way. We have travelled to many islands in the Caribbean (St Lucia, Barbados, Grand... More

Spent a great week at Karibuni Lodge in January 2014. As per our previous stay here, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful - giving suggestions on excursions and car rental/taxi transfers prior to our arrival and then booking the taxi and restaurants for us, as well as placing orders for take-out meals. Breakfast was a hearty collection of bread,... More

I had tried the last two times we had visited St. Martin to stay at Karibuni but not been able to get a room (there are only 6), I was determined to book far enough in advance to get in and it was worth the wait! My husband was concerned about not being able to walk out to the beach... More

Breakfasts are large: beautiful fresh baguettes, pastries, fruit salad, coffee, juice, cheeses etc. great to sit on the shady deck eating it looking out over the sea. Nice pool... More

This place truly is the perfect refuge in St. Martin. Part of me doesnt want to provide such a glowing review because I would love to keep this as one of my hidden gems however after the warmth and hospitality shown by the entire staff it would be selfish not to give them the recognition they truly deserve. The property... More

Wonderful B&B, impeccable service (Thank you Celia!) Loved my stay at the Karibuni Lodge. It doesn't get better than this in St-Martin! I highly recommend this place. The room was very large and absolutely beautiful. I really enjoyed our private terrace.The view from the lodge is spectacular, just in front of Pinel Island. Breakfast was fresh and delicious every morning.... More

We had not visited st. Martin in 14 years. We heard complaints from people how built up it is, etc. yes, this is true in some areas. This is why we tried staying in an area we had not stayed before, Cul du Sac, sort of getting onside our comfort zone of a gate enclosed resort. We are happy we... More

If I rated this place out of a hundred, it would get 100. We stayed here for 10 nights during November for our honeymoon. We had the room with the pool and it was absolutely beautiful. The photos on the site do a pretty decent job of showing the room, but it's even more spacious in person. The view was... More
