A day at Hôtel Le Toiny – St. Barth

Lucky you! You’ve just checked into one of the oh-so-secluded one bedroom villa suites at the gorgeous 5 star Hotel Le Toiny. These free-standing romantic little cottages offer a chic and comfortable separate living area, a compact kitchenette and a luxurious en suite bedroom graced with a draped 4 poster bed. Just outside your door? A lovely terrace with your own private pool and breathtaking ocean views. Close your gate and put up the red mailbox flag so all will know to “Do Not Disturb.” Le Toiny is all about the privacy.


Bonjour! It’s Sunday morning. Your terrace is the perfect place to start your day with a breakfast of fresh fruit and French pastries that will provide sustenance for you to explore the Pointe of Toiny via a two-mile walking path. Your sound track will be the Caribbean surf. If you finish up early you may have time for a yoga lesson on the beach and even a swim in your private pool. Au naturel

Brunch time! The hotel’s restaurant Le Gaïac is famous for its Sunday Brunch so block off at least two hours and enjoy the food – and the view. It’s an experience. The buffet is beautiful and bountiful. Eggs are cooked to order and a chef mans the grill. May we suggest a bottle of Rosé? Esprit de Sainte-Marguerite Château Sainte-Marguerite (2010).



Relax a bit before visiting Toiny’s Serenity Spa Cottage for one of their special treatments. We recommend booking the St. Barth Chill – the island’s version of a hot stone massage. Think sea shells and Ligne St Barth exotic oils. Gentlemen might also enjoy an old-school shave on the Cottage’s porch.


Not that you ever have to leave the hotel on your perfect Sunday but you might be tempted to shop a bit at the boutiques in St. Jean and continue on to Gustavia to enjoy a sunset cocktail at Shell Beach’s Dð Brazil.

End your day with a very private dinner pour deux on your terrace (or elsewhere on the hotel’s property). Chef Stéphane Mazières is the only chef in the Caribbean to have been awarded “GRAND CHEF RELAIS & CHATEAUX.” He will be pleased to meet with you and to create your personal menu and advise you on the wine.

Time to put up that red flag.

Bonne nuit

    I am arranging a trip in the future for several couples in st barths. While a villa would make more sense, we are all celebrating anniversaries and may prefer Some privacy during our stay. Would a hotel offer an environment that would work for that kind of arrangement, or is there another suggestion?
    My husband and I have enjoyed your villlas in years past and would like to share the island w/ friends, while celebrating a romantic occasion for ourselves.

    Thankful for your suggestions,
    Jill Baggett

      Hi Jill,

      Bonjour from sunny St. Barth!

      It is so nice that you want to share St. Barth with your friends. I am sure that they will love it as much as we do. As far as the privacy issue is concerned, I suggest that you get together with everyone and discuss the options. A hotel stay would mean each couple would have their own room or suite but you need to consider that you cannot all “hangout” together in your living room, on your terrace or by your pool. Of course you can all be poolside or on the beach depending on which hotel you choose but you would be sharing that space with other people. You would also have hotel services available. If they decide a private villa would be more fun, then I can suggest villas that have separate bedroom pavilions so that each couple can escape to their own space whenever they would like. If you stay in a villa, you don’t have to eat all of your meals in a restaurant which means you will save some euros on dining out. Of course you will want to take show your friends to St. Barth’s wonderful restaurants but you may want to cook in one night or we can arrange for a private chef to cook for you. You can get your fresh baguettes, make sandwiches and pack a cooler to take to the beach. For the anniversaries, our concierge can arrange for a special night for each couple or one night for all of the couples. We can also arrange a snorkeling trip, sunset cruises, in-villa couple massages etc.

      Talk it over and then let me know what everyone would prefer to do. I can then send you hotel and/or villa options.

      Sunny regards,
