I spent three days last week at the Manapany, my third stay there, and, as usual, had an incredible experience. The spacious oceanview suite was immaculate and extremely well decorated with heavy teak furnishings including a king poster bed, sofa sitting group, large armoire and a small dining table and chairs for two. Equally impressive is the modern bathroom with tumbled marble walls, granite double sink vanity, teak trimmed soaking tub and roomy stand alone shower. The features of the room reflect the overall attention to detail and comfort found throughout the property. The onsite Spa Payot and restaurant Fellini offer are equally wonderful. Staff in all the facilities were attentive and helpful, just like on my previous trips. Besides the owners, there seems to be a core of longterm veterans mixed with a group of young French workers who make their way to St. Barths to work a season or two before moving on to other parts of the world or back to their homeland. As a solo traveller, I also always enjoy the fact that Manapany draws numerous local families to its wonderful pool, restaurant, tennis court and, of course, private beach. They are gracious when I attempt to converse en francais and are ready to fill in the gaps with their superior English abilities. Last, the location is excellent: a short 5 minute drive into Gustavia or to the airport and St. Jean bay. I have stayed at other very fine hotels on St. Barths, but Manapany stands out as my clear favorite.
