“Great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago

The Taiwana has probably the greatest location on the island. This boutique style hotel gets everything for a family to spend a great moment in Saint Bart.
Service is nice and children friendly
Breakfast is excellent and there are many options to eat either in the hotel or around it.
Taiwana is definitely a gem not as publicized as other hotels on the island.

Stayed February 2015

Lovely rooms.. Great service from the beach boys but very poor service from the restaurant staff and very limited menu choices which were very expensive and not of good quality. I wouldn't reccomend staying.

We made a second trip to St Barth for vacation. The last time we went was in 2014, and we liked it so much we came back again to the Taiwana. I dont really have too much more to add from my first review, but everything was perfect as it was last time. We saw all the same staff which was nice and they remembered us!

The rooms were awesome as usual. We stayed in one of the upper rooms during the last few days of our trip and the view was amazing. One thing that can always be counted on at the Taiwana is service which was top notch. Anything you can possibly want, they will try their best to get it for you.

Flamands beach is always beautiful. I think it is the nicest beach on the island personally. Very quiet and the upkeep is consistently good. In summary, I would definitely come to the Taiwana again. Be sure to book early especially if you want to come in the high season as the hotel's popularity is steadily rising. We were almost out of luck because we booked too late.

We just returned from a 9 night stay at this amazing hotel. I loved the location, staff, and style of this hotel. Our room was the Amber Ocean View suite and you could hear the ocean waves as you relaxed in your room and on the terrace. The room was spacious and we couldn't get enough of the views. There were many steps to climb to get to our room, 64 in total, but we liked the exercise. We like to escape to a quiet room after a busy day exploring the island and this hotel offered the perfect retreat. The restaurant staff was very attentive and accommodated my gluten free diet needs. A special thanks to Katarina and the chef. The concierge assisted us with restaurant reservations on the island and made great recommendations. We hated to leave and would definitely return.

Room Tip: The rooms higher up have great ocean views, but you may have to climb a lot of stairs as your coming...

We just came back from this beautiful resort and I would like to share with my fellow travelers about this best kept secret on St. Barth.
First, let me start with location. It is located directly on one of the nicest beaches (Flamand) in St. Barth.
The property of the hotel itself. It is exceptionally well kept, well presented and well managed which brings me to the very important point of my review. The highlight of this place is superb management and in particular the director of guest relations - Alexandre Arfi-. This guy is absolutely terrific, personable, makes you feel very welcome, well-mannered and a pleasure to work with. He creates an environment where all members of his working team are like family. As a guest at this resort, this creates an exceptionally hospitable vibe. I can go on and on. We travelled extensively over the last 25 years and stayed at the best properties on both sides of the Atlantic. Hotel Taiwana is certainly one of the best places we have ever visited. If you are looking for upscale, intimate beach front hotel in St Barth - you cannot do better than Taiwana.

Hotel is located in a very private area of the island. A bit removed from the center but if you plan on enjoying privacy and great beach, this is for you. Very good amenities, rooms design and service.
We enjoyed every moment of our 3 days stay. Our friends are staying there for the last seven years with children every spring. I think its a great compliment to this hotel considering that they are big time travelers and are always staying in the very best hotels.

Room Tip: If you don't mind stairs, ask for a room on the top floor in the corner with the private terrace...

We couldn't have been happier with our week at The Taiwana. Understated luxury with an amazing beach, great rooms and a quiet ambiance. The staff was very friendly and the manager Alex Arfi went out of his way to accommodate any special requests. This is an intimate boutique hotel that met our expectations and we definitely would return there . And they play great music!!
