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?
