This was our second stay at Karibuni. The rooms are pretty, clean and well equipped. The views are wonderful and the feeling is very private. This trip we had some time to sit by the pool which is delightful. Before, during AND after our trip, the staff was accommodating and professional. The owner and operator of the lodge, Manon is...

This was our first time on St.Martin and we had divided our vacation into two: first eight days in the French side and last four days on the Dutch side. Karibuni Lodge was our accommodation for the eight days and it was more than expected starting from the service Manon provided while booking - even if the pictures and earlier...

From its breathtaking views to its warm, sincere service to its clever breakfast parrots, the Karibuni Lodge gave us one of the most enjoyable, relaxing and pleasant vacations we've ever had. Aesthetically delightful, ideally situated and calm, calm, calm, Karibuni delivers the kind of vacation that many of us dream about all our lives--private (but not lonesome), adventurous (but not...

My wife and I's stay at Karibuni Lodge coincided with Hurricane Gonzalo. We arrived the Saturday before the storm and departed the following Sunday. The property sustained substantial damage to its beautiful gardens. But within a day or so the property was back to its immaculate self. I can not emphasis enough what wonderful people own this beautiful property. They...

This adorable boutique hotel is not a full service hotel, meaning there is no restaurant/bar on site. It is more akin to a bed and breakfast, so as long as you are okay with that, this place is perfect! Starting with the best part: The views!!! Wow! We stayed in the "green" room which had the best view of the...

Karibuni Lodge is not a full service resort. There is no restaurant or bar on premises. No shopping, spa, organized activities or managers cocktail mixers. And for some, this is a very good thing. It is an oasis of tranquility and romance in a quiet residential area. Think luxury private villa or chic B&B. The suites are spacious and impeccable....

My wife and I visited here back in May and thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The Karibuni Lodge is amazing, you will not be disappointed. The room, the views of Pinel island all were exceptional.....but most of all Celia. She greeted us when we arrived a little late (because we did get lost). She was genuinely concerned about us which...
