My husband and I just returned from our second wonderful stay at Karibuni Lodge. Manon, Barbara and Sylvania all went out of their way to accommodate our every wish! Manon arranged a fabulous couples massage and made excellent restaurant suggestions. Barbara was so sweet and helpful and made sure that we had all our needs met. Sylvania served us a... More

We spent five days here after a Star Clipper Cruise. We were looking for beach time and a quiet beautiful environment. After reading the reviews, the Karibuni Lodge sounded like the place for us. It did not disappoint. After a delicious breakfast, delivered to our deck, we shuttled daily to Pinel Island for a great lunch and our beach time.... More

Spent the past week at Karibuni staying in the yellow suite and had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. Both Manon & Barbara are extremely charming and fabulous hosts and were always available with great recommendations for diner or outings. Manon set up a full day sailing/snorkeling trip to Anguilla aboard a 60-70 ft Catamaran out of nearby Ance Marcel... More

We stayed at the Karibuni lodge in Februari 2015 and since then are looking for an excuse to go back. Manon and her parents have created the perfect finishing touch to match the most amazing setting. Breakfast is every day a somewhat different, yet mesmerizing, view on the bay and the island of Pinel, all from your well equipped, and... More

We spent 10 days at Karibuni in Feb/March 2015. This was our third year at the Lodge and the extraordinary high quality of service has been consistent every year. The uniquely designed hillside lodge is in a gated community, has wonderful restaurants within 5 - 10 minutes and provides privacy and beautiful views of the water. The owners and every... More

My husband and I just returned from a week long stay at the Karibuni and once again were not disappointed. This is our second stay at this small boutique style, environmentally friendly lodge; we know we will be back next year.

We just returned from a week-long stay at the Karibuni. We had stayed elsewhere in St. Martin the year before and decided to try Karibuni due to our good experiences on Pinel Island and at the Karibuni restaurant. We were not disappointed. We had the red/pink room and our friends had the blue. Both were clean and simply furnished, with... More

My husband and I stayed for 6 nights end of January to early February 2015, our first time to St Martin. Anne-Laurie greeted us and she and Manon were our advisors, guides, friends and problem-solvers while there. The room was just as pictured - spacious, incredibly comfortable bed and pillows, and wonderful view of Isle Pinel. Each day's breakfast was... More

This was our third visit to Karibuni Lodge and we were immediately reminded of why we love this place so much. The sincere welcome Manon and Sylvana extend to every guest just has to be experienced. The rooms are beautifully presented and the view is every bit as good as the photographs suggest. Add to this a wonderful breakfast with... More
