Hotel Le Toiny
What We Love
- Romantic and boutique hotel
- The famous Sunday Brunch du Toiny — a drool-worthy feast, and an island institution
- Great waterside location
What To Know
- Though not a traditional beach hotel, the wild southeast corner of St. Barts offers challenging surf
- Kids are welcome, but the hushed ambience is better suited to couples
- The cliff setting and matrix of stairways aren’t ideal for guests with limited mobility
Romantic boutique sleep with haute French fare on the surf-battered southeastern coast of St. Barts
Classic tropical hideaway. Miles from sceney Gustavia, Hotel Le Toiny is a couples-friendly spot for romance, refuge and relaxation. With traditional French Caribbean style in mahogany, teak and tulle, Le Toiny has the feel of an old colonial plantation house. Poised on a remote cliff overlooking the blustery Bay of Toiny, there are just 15 bungalows with private gated entrances and heated pools.
Bed and Bath
More private residences than suites, each of the 15 villas has vaulted ceilings, hardwood plank floors and French colonial teak furnishings. The grand four-poster mahogany beds are kingsize studies in bliss — all butter-soft Egyptian cotton in bright white. Mod cons include WiFi, 40-inch satellite plasma televisions, iPod stations and kitchenettes with fully stocked Nespresso machines.
The only chef in the Caribbean with the same Relais & Châteaux Grand Chef status as the likes of Daniel Boulud and Thomas Keller, Le Toiny’s Stéphane Mazières is at the helm of the dramatic cliffside restaurant, Le Gaïac. Don’t miss the signature pasta dish, which is prepared tableside in a wheel of parmigiano reggiano and tossed with black truffles. For further indulgence, head to the Serenity Spa Cottage for treatments that use island-made Ligne St. Barts products and panoramic sea views.
How to Get There
I'm not usually one to write reviews but my husband and I had the most phenomenal experience at Le Toiny. Throughout our stay at the Signature Suite we were incredibly pleased by the beauty of the property & professionalism of every single member of the gracious staff. The suite itself (#11) is perfectly designed with direct ocean views. The level of detail that is in every decor element is top notch and the location of the suite was one of our favorite perks - it felt extremely private but short walking distance to the beautiful lobby. Breakfast was delivered directly to our terrace every morning at our desired time and we chose to have lunch at the beach club which was a fun experience - the hotel Defender picks you up and drives you down to the beach where they have a wonderful restaurant, pool and quaint little boutique. We had cocktails and dinner at the restaurant in the lobby overlooking the pool while the DJ played low-key dinner music & followed it with a nightcap by the fire pit. ... every meal we had was perfect so compliments to the chef. Thank you to the extremely competent concierge staff for being so helpful in arranging activities and reservations during our stay. We've stayed at other hotels on the island and Le Toiny is by far the best if you can appreciate the finer elements of luxury travel. If I could give more than 5 stars then I would!
From the moment of arrival until the day of departure was simply perfection. The welcome, the attention to detail, the amazing suite (and i mean amazing), the beach club (simply the best place for lunch on the island) and breakfast by your pool. The team including the owner were delightful. The perfect holiday
From the moment of arrival until the departure it was simply perfection. The environs, the suite (magical and so relaxing by design) and the service. The beach club is the best place for lunch that we visited and without doubt one of the most romantic places on earth.
Hotel Lete Toiny is by far the most luxurious and well appointed property on the island of St. Barth. The team at the Hotel goes out of their way to make sure that every need you have is met and done so with an enthusiastic attitude. We could not have been more pleased with our selection of Le Toiny.
The restaurant is fantastic and has a spectacular view. The bar which is located adjacent to the restaurant is beautiful and has a staff that will create any drink you can imagine. We loved sitting and chatting with the bartenders.
The rooms are better than the pictures make them out to be. Complete privacy, a great place to unwind and rejuvenate yourself and your spouse. The views from each room could not be better. Having breakfast every morning while looking at the beautiful water is a wonderful way to start the day.
The new Beach Club is a welcome addition. There are plenty of beach chairs and the team at the Beach Club are always around to meet you needs. We ate lunch at the Beach Club twice during our stay and the food was very good.
I could not recommend this property me enthusiastically. It will far exceed your expectations.
We went on Monday to there full moon party on the beach. On arriving we were attended to very swiftly, and professionally by the lovely car parking staff, who then sent us to there beach in the hotel land Rover. On are arrival, the beach couldn't do any more to make us at home. The beach setting at Le Toiny has to be on a par with any other beach on the island, and the added addition of a pool, even though we weren't using it, was stunning. On to the food, I had gazpacho followed by black seabass, then orange cheesecake. The food was just incredible and totally on another level, and I have no doubt after visiting plenty of restaurants on the island, that this no 1 on the island. Chef Jarad came to each table after are meal, for a chat which was a lovely touch. Overall this hotel and food is absolutely top.
