Set on 38 acres at Anse de Toiny, the architecture at Hôtel Le Toiny is heavily influenced by the old plantation houses of the French Caribbean, fitting naturally into a tropical hillside setting. Each suite at the resort has a private pool lined with lava stone and private terraces with beige Turkish travertine. All villas have been designed to catch as much natural light as possible, and maximum sea views and privacy and seclusion are standard. Spacious living areas flow directly into the bedroom, which in turn leads to a large, well-appointed bathroom. Each villa includes beach chairs and umbrellas. Elegant touches include four-poster canopy beds, soft linens, French colonial teak wood furnishings, and rich fabrics in toile and stripes reflecting the colors of the Caribbean.

A private path runs from the hotel to the beach and offers panoramic views of Toiny Bay. On the 10-minute walk down the path, guests might discover salamanders, turtles, and iguanas. For those who enjoy an early morning walk or evening stroll, the hotel’s scenic hiking trail follows the ocean’s edge around Pointe de Toiny. The 40-minute walk overlooking the ocean offers a slight incline and is perfect for taking in an iconic view of the bay and the island.
