My partner and I just returned from 8 days at Salines Garden Cottages. On an island where superlatives rule; the Best, the Biggest, the most Expensive, SGC takes the prize of most welcoming and best value. The beauty of this tropical haven created by Jean-Philipe and his wife is that it is intimate and interactive. The five named cottages, each with their own personality, become your "home away from home". As the attentive host, Jean-Philipe makes you feel a part of his micro-community. From the introductions made at the communal breakfast table or the conversations over an evening cocktail, we were engaged with other interesting guests from around the globe. Whether they be American, Argentinian or Italian, friendships were made while enjoying the essence of St Barth without breaking the bank.
By many standards, Salines Garden Cottage may not be considered fancy. For us, however, the serene natural beauty, intimate size and overall friendliness, were added benefits that go beyond the criteria of a typical 5-star rating for a vacation in a place that is truly paradise.
We cannot wait to return!
