La Banane is a boutique hotel just a few metres away from Lorient bay - with its gorgeous white sandy beaches & turquoise waters.  Comprised of 9 bungalows set amongst lush tropical gardens & cool outdoor swimming pools. 

La Banane was already an institution on St Barts, renowned for its historical connections to the jazz music scene.  Now taken over by Jean-Marc Israel (formerly a regular guest) & redesigned with exclusive design furniture created by Pierre Jeanneret for Le Corbusier. The chic new style is fun, but with an elegant sheen. With a colour-scheme composed of vibrant yellows and cool whites, this newly-renovated small chic hotel pays homage to the modernist decor of the 1950s & 60s.


With a wide-range of spa treatments on offer, this Chic Retreat is the perfect place to pamper yourself. La Banane has partnered with local spa Art & Bien Etre to offer an assortment of specially designed treatments on site;  from facials, body scrubs & waxing, to manicures & pedicures. How about a candle-lit massage in the privacy of your bungalow? Choose from Traditional Thai Nuad Boran, African Bamboo or Deep Swedish among many others. Want something a little more active? Try a private yoga or Pilates lesson, each tailored to suit your individual needs. 

There are 2 swimming pools with terraces, the perfect place enjoy breakfast or a light meal. A reading room, complete with library, a bar, & cheap boat & car hire available.  As for the service, even the most discerning & demanding guest leaves happy!  The more energetic won’t be disappointed with the wide range of activities: tennis, big-game fishing , sailing, diving & other water sports. La Banane can organise excursions for you to the neighbouring islands, or help you surprise a loved one with a romantic champagne cruise at sunset.


Breakfast can be taken by the pool or on the bungalows' private terraces. Continental breakfast is included in the rates and an American breakfast can be ordered for a little extra as well as a la carte. Light lunches, salads, burgers and fries, can be ordered on request & La Banane are happy to organise a 3-course dinner from their excellent French partner restaurant, Kfé Massaï.

La Banane is a collection of 9 bungalows scattered around the main building, each with its own private terrace & named after some of the artists who so successfully defined that ‘50s look’ such as Serge Mouille, Jean Prouvé & Charlotte Perriand. These 9 rooms are split into 2 categories; Banane Extra & the larger Banane Deluxe.  

All bungalows have a private terrace looking over the pool or facing the gardens & can accommodate 2-4 guests depending on size. When you are not relaxing on the secluded terraces or out by the pools, why not check out the extensive film collection, which covers everything from art house & documentaries, to blockbusters? All rooms have a flat screen TV, DVD, CD player, telephone, air-conditioning, mini-bar, comfortable bedding & silent fans while all Deluxe rooms have Nespresso machines. The en-suite bathrooms have showers and open onto a small tropical garden or patio and luxurious bath products by Acqua di Parma are provided as well as towels.
