Hôtel Le Toiny

Anse de Toiny, Toiny 97133, St Barthélemy

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 a private terrace with beige Turkish travertine. All villas have been designed to catch as much natural light as possible, and maximum sea views and privacy 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.

Following renovations made necessary by Hurricane Irma, the hotel now features eight freestanding villas as well as a much-anticipated beach club, an expanded oyster bar, and updated public spaces. Additionally, Michelin-starred chef Jarad McCarroll has joined Toiny Restaurant.

For the Magic of St Barths

St Barths is the sort of Caribbean diamond that goes hand-in-hand with the good life, and it just so happens that Hotel Le Toiny brings the good life in spades. This Relais & Châteaux property - made up of villa suites and the resort proper - sits on stunning Toiny Bay, and is the home of the award-winning Le Gaiac - just in case you were interested in what fine French dining in the Caribbean is all about.

Paddle on, Young Man!

The beach at Hotel Le Toiny is blessed with some of the calmest water surrounding St Barths, which makes it the perfect place to pick up a paddleboard and set out for a day on the sea. The fact that the beach, with its golden horseshoe of powder-fine sand, is rarely busy, is one more reason to visit now.

The Friends You Make Along the Way

Once you’ve fried your brain on the beach - you know it’s going to happen - you should be good and ready for a bit of a wander. St Barths is blessed with a multitude of hiking trails, many of which are easily accessible. That is, you don’t need to hike 40 miles to get to the trailhead for your 4 mile hike. One of the most popular walks is from Petite Anse to Columbier Beach, easily reached from Hotel Le Toiny. Keep your camera ready; you never know who you’re going to spot along the trail.

For the Caribbean Countryside

St Barths has one of the best climates in the Caribbean, which means that you’ll be afforded plenty of time to hike and explore while visiting. Flowers seem to bloom perpetually, cacti stand tall and proud (important if you’re keen on pretty pictures, of course) and the walking and hiking trails are frequently void of people. Bliss? Basically.
