This property is a perfect example of casual luxury. We had a fantastic experience at Karibuni Boutique Hotel. It is in an amazing setting, looking out over Pinel Island. I had high expectations after looking at the pictures online, and the reality did not disappoint. Karibuni was exactly the environment I was looking for. I believe it is my favorite Caribbean hotel that I have visited. With only 6 rooms, it feels more like a private villa than a hotel. I enjoyed staying in the Cul-de-Sac area, on the French side of the island. It had a laid-back residential feel.
Manon and Jules were extremely helpful with restaurant suggestions, and took care of making reservations for us (even ordering pizza to the hotel for us one night). They will also coordinate the complimentary ferry to Pinel, and make reservations for beach chairs and lunch at the Karibuni restaurant. They made everything completely seamless for us.
Having breakfast provided on our terrasse each morning was a great benefit. It mostly consisted of an assortment of breads and fresh fruit. The croissants were wonderful! And we couldn't have asked for a better view during breakfast. It was always a great start to the day.
