This was our third visit to Karibuni Lodge and we were immediately reminded of why we love this place so much. The sincere welcome Manon and Sylvana extend to every guest just has to be experienced. The rooms are beautifully presented and the view is every bit as good as the photographs suggest. Add to this a wonderful breakfast with...

We spent a week in St Martin at the Karibuni Lodge, and it was close to perfect. The rooms are stylish and private,with wonderful view of the bay and Pinel Island. The location is quiet but in fact only 5-10minutes from Grand Case and Orient Beach. Manon and the family were welcoming and extremely helpful in recommendations for restaurants. There...

There is good reason for Karibuni Lodge to be rated #1 on TripAdvisor. Manon and her mother, Marion, have created a beautiful, cozy, secluded atmosphere in a quiet, gated French neighborhood overlooking Cul de Sac Bay and Pinel Island. During our stay, Manon, Savanah, and Marion were more friends than hosts. When my wife lost her phone (along with a...

This was our first trip to St. Martin, and Karibuni was the perfect choice! We were traveling for our honeymoon, and the staff helped make it extra special with a "welcome mr & mrs" note outside of our room, a "just married" pillow on the bed, and their constant smiles every day. The hotel is in a quiet residential area...

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...
