Hotel Taïwana Review

This classic island retreat reopened in 2012 under new management to the delight of the young, international guests who appreciate the spiffy updates to the spacious rooms and suites clustered around a charming atrium garden. Some of the rooms and baths are redone in sleek modern simplicity, others retain the stone walls and artistic tile of the original decor—all feature touches of the signature bright red. Rooms are set, terrace style, into a mountainside overlooking gorgeous Baie de Flamands, a long, and fairly private beach. Depending on the room there can be a lot of steps to climb, but three units are handicap accessible, and some units can connect for families. A new pool with lounge beds set beside the beach is perfect for socializing, as are the attractive restaurants and bars. Conveniently located on-site is an outpost of Gustavia's Poupette boutique, a salon by NEVILLE, London Hairdresser to the stars, a spiffy TechnoGym fitness, and in-room spa.
