My husband and I recently spent time in the Caribbean. Originally we had planned on spending our entire vacation on the island of Anguilla. During the planning phase we were looking at a map. My husband had already visited St Maarten. We were eager to see places neither of have ever been. St Bart is in such close proximity to Anguilla that it seemed a shame not to spend at least a little time there. I looked on Trip Advisor and Relais & Chateauxs' websites, at the photos, the descriptions and the reviews of Hotel Le Toiny. From the moment we arrived at the airport we were absolutely dazzled. A really knowledgable and warm gentleman named David met out flight and drove us to the resort. On our drive there he gave us a great deal of information about the island - places we might want to go, advice for driving around the island and a bit about local customs. Upon arrival we were immediately greeted by management and a concierge. They immediately offered us cool drinks and a seat in a beautiful room where we were invited to share our wish list of things to do. They arranged to have our rental car dropped off at our door and within just a few minutes more they were off making all of our dreams a reality and we were seated on the terrace of Le Gaiac looking out on what has to be one of the most stunning views on the island! The food is nothing short of exquisite. After lunch we were escorted to our 1 bedroom suite/villa that was simply stunning!! It was very private and quiet and filled with everything you could possibly hope for and then some. The suite is complete with a fully furnished and very comfortable and attractive living area, a small wet bar/kitchen area, well lit work space complete with a desk and internet access. The canopied bed and furnishings were gorgeous and romantic. The bathroom suite is huge as is the closet. My husband and I have always owned homes in big cities where an apartment is the size of a postage stamp and this villa was easily 4 times the size of our first apartments as young professionals starting out many years ago! One of the really unique design details were the wood ceilings with soft lighting built into them. As if all this was not enough, the icing on the cake is the fact that every room in the villa opens up onto a huge terrace where we had our own table and chairs for dining, lounge chairs for sunning with an umbrella, additional chairs and tables for entertaining guests an outdoor shower and our very own infinity pool facing the same magnificent view we enjoyed at Le Gaiac. The hotel provided a raft for our pool, snorkeling equipment for beach excursions, beach bags, beach chairs and a long list of amenities too long to list in this review. We could be prefectly happy there for a long, long time. Hotel Le Toiny is so good at what they do, the staff is so magnificent....that it all seems to happen effortlessly! I have never stayed in a more beautiful, peaceful place and I have never felt more relaxed or refreshed. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer! From the moment David met us at the airport until the moment he dropped us off and we said our goodbyes, everything about our stay with Hotel Le Toiny was flawless. Our next trip to Hotel Le Toiny will be for a much longer stay! This was hands down the most romantic place my husband and I have ever been. It is also the most well managed and beautifully maintainted property we have ever stayed at. I highly recommend this to anyone who comes to St Barts for a visit. It is truly the one place on my bucket list I want to see over and over! I want to not that due to our short stay we never made it to the spa. We won't make that mistake the next time!
