First trip to Eleuthera during the first week of August. My wife, my 10 and 6 y/o daughters and me. Did lots of research online before going to Eleuthera. The same with La Bougainvillea. I spoke with the manager several times before I booked. What a fantastic experience! The hotel is beautiful, put together with exquisite taste and right on one of the most beautiful beaches in Eleuthera. From the moment we arrived, we couldn't have asked for a better place or warmer people. They were super attentive to details to make sure we had a great time! The room was large with 2 queen beds, simply but beautifully decorated. The restaurant was great, whether to have breakfast, lunch or dinner. You could seat outside by the bar or in the sitting area or inside the main area in the hotel. Tourists from other hotels and locals come for meals regularly. Staff was great, food too!!! Infinity pool with a great view of the ocean, a fantastic way to finish the evening prior to dinner! The beach was one of our favorite in the island (we had rented a 4x4, and went to several others... please don't miss the opportunity to go to Lighthouse beach - specially if you snorkel - and French Leave beach for fun). We had "our" beach at the hotel for the 4 of us 95% of the time. Long stretch (several miles I would think) of pristine calm and warm water, fine sand with a pink hue, no significant current and snorkeling right off the beach. We will play frisbee with my wife and kids while the sun will start settling behind the hotel, with the beach completely unspoiled for the 4 of us! One of those spectacular moments life gifts you unexpectedly! Can't say enough good things about the staff - great attitude, warm with our kids at all times, always with a smile! Eleuthera is not for everyone (as mentioned in many post in the Eleuthera forum). The island in general is underdeveloped, roads are in poor condition, and there are tiny mosquitoes in the evenings that are a pain. La Bougainvillea is, however, a top notch hotel - we are already discussing our next trip back! And Eleuthera beaches are spectacular, some of the best I have visited in the Caribbean. Uncrowded. Best of all, most of the time it is just you and your family! You little piece of (a spectacular) ocean, just for you! La Bougainvillea adds the extra touch to make your stay a memorable one!

Hotel's Favorite
Oh my goodness if I could give this hotel a 100 starts I would do! It is simply perfect. Our room was large spacious and with a fabulously comfortable bed we overlooked the ocean. Every detail was taken care of and as the staff said to us they wanted us to feel at home and we did. Lovely outdoor space to sit and relax tables and chair as well as a large day bed. Fantastic infinity swimming pool and super loungers then further loungers over looking the sea. A few seconds walk to the beach which again is simply stunning and unspoilt. The food is exceptional. Excellent choice and their French chef always has daily specialties. I honestly cannot fault this hotel and cannot recommend it highly enough. I have to thank Thomas (owner) and Kezang (manager) for giving us the most perfectstay in paradise.

The first time I ever visited this place was in July 2018 to celebrate my mother‘s 75th birthday. It was absolutely Heaven on Earth . I have never been more at peace than at La Bougainvillea. My father passed 2 years ago . He had always dreamed of going to Eleuthera, unfortunately he never had the chance due to health issues. That is why I brought my mother there. Thank you to Tom , Chef Mo, Marci, Chris And several other employees .. you know who you are. They treated us as family. ❤️ I recommend this place wholeheartedly. .

Just spent 5 glorious days at this incredibly amazing resort. The setting is breathtaking. The beach spectacular. The accommodations food and service 5 star. From the moment we arrived a day earlier than planned Karell at the front desk treated us like royalty. Not to mention the manager Keysang. We had our daughters rehearsal dinner there Tsherimg and aGembo made sure everything was first class. Gembo even decorated the table for us and Tshring made sure the food and beverages were top notch. Some members of our family who were staying at the French Leaf resort were so impressed they checked out of there and moved to our hotel. We can’t wait to come back next year!!

Everything was perfect! Staff was friendly, professional, and responsive. The manager and owner were on top of operations. Rooms were comfortable, clean, and air-conditioned. The location is beautiful! The beach is clean, the water is clear, and the water temperature was just right. I will always have fond memories of my stay at La Bougainvillea.
