“serene and peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

it had been a few years since we last visited st. barts [high cost of lodging] but when we found the info on salines garden we immediately made a reservation. everything was perfect , from the ambience [many couples from france to practice our limited french with] to the helpful tips from jean philippe on where to eat . the cottages ,some of which have kitchenettes [ours did] , offer the opportunity to shop for lunch at the "rotisserie" for a wonderful lunch " to go "..of course the beaches are magnificent [we did not have a favorite] but it is great to people watch at st. jean and watch the planes land and take off {especially when they come in on the water side..all in all a wonderful place to use as a base for a totally relaxing vacation !!!!! joe and donna r.i.

Room Tip: we would recommend our room " wakiki"

Salines Garden is a wonderful place. If you want to have a quiet, beautiful place to base yourself on this fantastic island then stay here. Jean-Philippe is a gracious host who will help you with everything you need. However, if you want privacy and solitude, this is also possible. The choice is yours. There were times when we didn't see or hear anyone apart from ourselves for several days. Perfect! It is not a bustling 5 star resort with room service, it is a chill, tranquil, beautiful place. All the fun and chaos is only a few minutes away in a cab.
St. Barth's has a saying, "Tell only your best friends." With Salines Garden we say, "Don't tell anyone else, but make sure you go!" Matt & Charity

Salines Garden is a hidden treasure where one will find peace & tranquility. The location is hard to beat, being just enough inside the land that it is very quiet and you will never hear a car go by. Yet close to one of St Barth's most beautiful beaches. The rooms are decorated with great taste, the bed was very large and comfortable and the service impeccable. Our host was very available and knowledgeable, he took care of our rental car as well as our restaurant reservations and made sure everything was going smoothly at all times. Also, the place counts only 5 cottages which makes it very peaceful and quiet and makes you feel at home. This is really an excellent value and we will definitely return to Salines Garden on our next trip to St Barth !

Room Tip: We had the Pavones room which was perfect !

Salines Garden is a true gem - excellent value coupled with the perfect location, minutes away from the best beach at St. Bart's. Our host, Jean-Philippe made this trip truly memorable for us - from arranging our car rental with a great, reasonable domestic provider, meeting us at the airport, to sharing local spots, and entertaining us with his animated stories. We've already recommended Salines Garden to our friends and family...but we just couldn’t keep this amazing find to ourselves!

Salines Garden is a wonderful way to enjoy St Barths. The accommodation is lovely. The beds large and the room well appointed. The owner Jean Philippe is a perfect host. He organised our rental car and meet us at the airport to guide us to the property. Additionally he was always available to provide insider information on the island: best place to eat, history of the country etc.

This service made the trip extra special as we felt like a local and allowed for us to explore the island with confidence. I highly recommend this hotel.

We were picked up from the ferry by Jean Phillpe and brought to the room. The room was lovely, nice decor and a great shower.. Jean Phillpe was informative and available. We rented a car and explored all the beaches on the island and to our happy surprise the most beautiful beach was SALINES... I would definitely go back..

Salines Garden is fantastic place to stay at St Barths. We spent there 10-day period during our trip to Carribbean in June 2012.
The property itself is several cottages with and without kitchenette. My husband and I were extremely happy to take one with kitchenette as it’s convenient and, moreover, the island is not cheap place to eat.
The breakfast is always extremely fresh (even baget was warm when we came) and it’s enough to start the day.
The cottage is cleaned every day and on our arrival we were provided with shampoo and shower gel from Ligne St Barth (amazing natural cosmetics locally produced on the island).
According to the Jean Philippe (the owner) advice (during all our stay we got very valuable advice from him and also because of them we enjoyed spending our time in Salines Garden) we rented a car as it’s real “must” on the island.
Also the owner showed us local shop (U Marche) to buy some food and seafood stall (we bought lobsters for 20 euros per kilo). Both places provide good quality and reasonable price food.
The property itself is not far from Salines beach (15 mins by foot or 5 by car), whish is good and also suitable for those who like to spend time at beach “ au naturel”. We visited all the beaches around the island, however Salines is in top of our ranking. Also we liked the Governeur Beach which is neighbor to Salines.
We absolutely love our staying in Salines Garden. Jean Philippe, in case you read it, thank you very much!

Room Tip: Book a cottage with kitchenette
