Beautiful location! Gorgeous views! Cozy hip rooms. Can't say enough about Karibunis welcoming feel. Manon and Karl were extremely kind and helpful with recommendations for eating out and/or eating in. It was the last stop on our Caribbean adventure and a fantastic place to close out our trip.

We stay 3 nights in "La Chambre Rose" (with private terrasse and swimming pool) for our wedding anniversary. The staff is perfect, the room was stunning and we loved the way you will get your breakfast (I won't say more to keep the surprise;) The super plus is to have access by boat (morning departures) to Pinel Island just opposite...

We had a very enjoyable stay at Karibuni. The rooms offer great views although the lodge is a little distance to restaurants...walking to the closest isn't too bad but it is up hill on the way back. They also offer shuttles over to Pinel Beach and will reserve chairs for you, highly recommend this. The food at Pinel is excellent...

We had an amazing stay at Karibuni Lodge March 4-11th. The staff and owner Manon are absolutely fabulous!!! Manon and Karl helped us set up all of our nightly reservations as we did not have phone service, and each restaurant was better than the next. My birthday also happened to be during our stay and the staff brought flowers and...

There is not enough we can say about the space, location and staff. This trip we stayed in the Beige and Yellow Rooms (past 2 trips we stayed in the Green and Red Rooms). The set-up is so serene and private. You can choose to go to any beach or take a private ride to Pinel Island where guests of...

Everything about Karibuni Lodge is wonderful (location, ambiance, privacy, security, service, breakfast) EXCEPT for the mattress, pillows and bed linens which definitely need to be upgraded for a truly luxury stay.
