The fully revamped Hotel La Banane in St. Barts prides itself of being a secret hotel, an island of its own with a unique atmosphere. La Banane is the name of the first cabaret revue created by the hotel’s founder Jean-Marie Rivière – a personality in the French showbiz world – who used to hang out with the likes of Zaza Gabor and Brigitte Bardot. The design of this boutique hotel with nine independent suites is a blend of traditional architecture and collection furniture. The intimate setting is like a large family home, albeit with a sexy flair!
Situated high on a peninsula in Saint Barthélemy in the Caribbean, this luxury residence has spectacular 270 degree views of the ocean. Designed by Barnes Coy Architects, the house has a contemporary design with a Caribbean flair. Each bedroom opens to a private outdoor shower. The use of limestone wall and glass panels in the living area allows for seamless connection between the interior and the exterior spaces.
