The fabulous island of St. Barths is back, and better than ever, since the category 5 Hurricane Irma slammed on to the island in early September 2017 causing catastrophic damage to the island. Today one can enjoy a fabulous lunch catered by the new Hotel Manapany (more about this later) and day trip in and out of the island on The Yes Darling private charter yacht while taking in the island’s beaches and breathtaking coastline.
The Hotel Manapany which opened in 2018, located on Anse des Cayes Beach, is the island’s first eco-luxury resort and stunning addition to this fabulous oasis. This new resort is an escape within an escape, design to embody the ease of 1960s French glamour with all the modern convinces of a world-class resort and graced with a staff that is the envy of some best resorts in the world.
Those that remember the old Hotel Manapany will surely be surprised by the changes and find the new picture-perfect hotel a welcome addition to the Island.
Purchased by B Signature Hotels & Resorts, a luxury hotel group from France, the Hotel Manapany was completely rebuilt and styled to be both très chic and an exemplary example of environmental sustainability. In addition to using solar energy, electric cars and, recycled water to encourage natural resources conservation the Hotel Manapany is only minutes away from the shops and restaurants in Gustavia, the island’s main port and downtown.
Noted French interior designer François Champsaur gave each of the 43-room and suites their own stylish personality. Every room offers ocean or garden views and each is designed with beach style inspiration and grounded with earthy toned rugs hand-woven by Mexican artists. With two swimming pools, a fabulous spa featuring Dr. Hauschka products, and daily yoga classes your days could be filled with pampering activities or waterside relaxation. Walking the grounds of this resort will give you the feeling of being in a village carved out of steep hillside, lined with palm and mango trees and tropical flowers. The prefect compliment to your stroll in the lush tropical environs, or at your beach side base is one the hotel’s infused cocktails made with rum from Guadeloupe and Martinique. Dining at the Hotel Manapany is delightful and a seafood-inspired menu is highly recommended. Fusing haute-cuisine techniques with bounty procured from local fishermen and native herbs from an on-site garden insures the freshest and most flavorful selections.
Executive chef Martel brings his over 15 years culinary experience on the French Riviera to the Hotel Manapany. He oversees the restaurant, which offers remarkably beautiful views that compliment his innovative island cuisine.
From the beach cottages to the high cottages on the hillside and to the terrace that opens up to Anse des Cayes, the resorts beautiful natural beach, every part of Hotel Manapany it is a true escape. Located off the beach restaurant is the stylish atelier by designers Cedric Vernon Fahey and Rodolphe Ayer called L’Atelier by Ced & Rod. The designers beautiful creations are essential for dancing the night away at the islands hot spot Bagatelle St. Barths. In our opinion there are to fabulous ways to getting to St. Barths. If you are not seafaring in a yacht we recommend traveling with Fly Tradewind with connections out of San Juan. They make this island hop a luxurious breeze. Hotel Manapany.
