“Our Sixth visit to Salines Garden!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

My husband and I love this simple but well-designed gem near to our favorite beach in St. Bart's. John-Phillippe and Laurence are wonderful hosts and the communal breakfasts with people from (this year) Italy, Brazil and France are filled with lively conversations. J-P has the scoop on which restaurants are good each year and what's going on with the island politics. The six cottages are arranged around a small pool which is beautifully lit at night. We just left and are already pining to go back next year.

After falling in love with St. Barths 3 years ago, my husband and I have made Salines Garden our hidden escape while on island. Salines Gardens is comprised of cozy, beach-inspired yet well appointed villas set in a peaceful and tranquil lush garden setting all surrounding a well-kept plunge pool perfect for a post beach dip after a long, hot beach day. Equally desirable its location, Salines Garden is ideally located within minutes from the best beaches on the island and a quick hop into Gustavia and of course St. Jean for the islands best shopping and dining. We have become close with the villas owner and "concierge" Jean-Phillipe, who caters to a host of international guests which makes evening communal cocktails quite interesting and another draw to Salines Garden. Jean Phillipe, whom we consider the mayor of St. Barths, will enhance your stay with his local insight on all aspects of your trip and most importantly, the restaurants which seem to vary seasonally. Enjoy St Barths and it's hidden gem , Salines Garden.

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.
