The reviews are so on point. This place is really magical. What a wonderful location hide-a-way. We stayed for a few days after some time in Anguilla and are looking forward to coming back. We stayed in the Red room and found it to be just lovely. The rooms are clean, well equipped and view is excellent. The staff were...

We spent five days here after a Star Clipper Cruise. We were looking for beach time and a quiet beautiful environment. After reading the reviews, the Karibuni Lodge sounded like the place for us. It did not disappoint. After a delicious breakfast, delivered to our deck, we shuttled daily to Pinel Island for a great lunch and our beach time....

Spent the past week at Karibuni staying in the yellow suite and had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. Both Manon & Barbara are extremely charming and fabulous hosts and were always available with great recommendations for diner or outings. Manon set up a full day sailing/snorkeling trip to Anguilla aboard a 60-70 ft Catamaran out of nearby Ance Marcel...

We stayed at the Karibuni lodge in Februari 2015 and since then are looking for an excuse to go back. Manon and her parents have created the perfect finishing touch to match the most amazing setting. Breakfast is every day a somewhat different, yet mesmerizing, view on the bay and the island of Pinel, all from your well equipped, and...

We spent 10 days at Karibuni in Feb/March 2015. This was our third year at the Lodge and the extraordinary high quality of service has been consistent every year. The uniquely designed hillside lodge is in a gated community, has wonderful restaurants within 5 - 10 minutes and provides privacy and beautiful views of the water. The owners and every...

We just returned from a week-long stay at the Karibuni. We had stayed elsewhere in St. Martin the year before and decided to try Karibuni due to our good experiences on Pinel Island and at the Karibuni restaurant. We were not disappointed. We had the red/pink room and our friends had the blue. Both were clean and simply furnished, with...

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.
