Located on the island’s more secluded area, Grand Cul-de-Sac, Le Guanahani is a beachfront hotel in the middle of a charming tropical garden. Its evening restaurant, Le Bartolomeo, is therefore in the heart of this distinctive Caribbean setting, elegantly designed and surrounded by soothing candle lighting. The selection of dishes is made with fresh ingredients infused with Caribbean spices and Mediterranean flavors, and finely prepared for a sophisticated yet casual dining experience. Bar’to Lounge, adjacent to the restaurant, is where aperitifs and digestifs are enjoyed. Its selection includes the finest wines, liquors and cocktails, to start and finish your meal in style.
Opened in 1986 and expanded in 1991, Le Guanahani is one of Saint Barthélémy’s most notorious establishments, and its clientele spans from regulars who long ago fell in love with its casual yet elegant character, and newcomers who are said to adore it from the moment they step into its stunning setting. Le Bartolomeo, named after Christopher Columbus’s brother, who also gave his name to the island of Saint Barth, is a perfect representation of what Le Guanahani is about: a haven of peace, far from the madding crowd.
