St. Barts is one of those locations where a hotelier’s most important consideration, far ahead of any positive innovations, is simply to do justice to the setting. On this island that means small-scale, intimate hospitality, an impeccable sense of style, and enough physical comfort to keep up with the island’s idyllic climate and unhurried pace. The old Taïwana fit the bill well enough, but the new Taïwana, fresh off a long and thorough renovation, is the kind of hotel for which the Saint Barthélemy tourist authorities can only thank their lucky stars.
It’s set at the edge of Flamands beach, on the island’s northwest coast, a few minutes’ drive from Gustavia — like the best island hotels it’s far enough to feel secluded while close enough to be convenient. The twenty-two rooms and suites are all different, some with terraces or private pools, and span the range from petite (yet stylish) bedrooms to two- and three-bedroom ocean-view suites. What’s constant throughout is a crisp, contemporary look, and a bit of the antiques-meets-modernity tension that helps create so much of Taïwana’s personality.
The pool is looking better than ever, as is the open-air beachfront restaurant, and any day now they’re set to open a full-service spa in partnership with a global brand that’s yet to be named — until then you’ll make do with an en-suite massage.
