Blissed-Out Beach Bungalows


St Barths Surf Cove

Tucked into the hills above St Barths’ best surfing beach, Hotel Le Toiny specialises in blissful seaside seclusion. Each of the 15 suites is a private Villa with a terrace, infinity pool and classic Caribbean decor. It can be tempting never to leave the generous, private spaces, but hiding out would mean missing the top-tier restaurant, hiking trails and Serenity Spa that inspire most clients’ annual returns to Hotel Le Toiny.

Our favourite rooms

For a private outdoor soak a deux, we love the pools on the terrace of every suite. Even more secluded, spring for the Three-Bedroom Villa, otherwise the one-bedroom villas highest on the hill have the best views of the Caribbean Sea.


The heated infinity pool is set just outside the restaurant and lobby area, with panoramic sea views.


The ocean-facing Serenity Spa Cottage offers massages, peels, manicures and a hot shell treatment using lava shells to create a beachy spin on the hot-stone massage.

Packing tips

Hiking shoes are a must for anyone eager to explore the 17 hectares of wild hills around the hotel.


Fitness buffs can book yoga or pilates classes down on the beach; more modest yogis can also practice sun salutations on their private terrace or at the spa suite.


Small pets are welcome at no additional cost; actually, the manager’s friendly black lab may be the first to greet you on arrival. See more pet-friendly hotels in St Barths.

An onsite greenhouse provides 20 varieties of produce for the restaurant; other ingredients are sourced locally whenever possible. Beach lights are solar-powered.

Food and Drink

Top Table

Unless you’re here to ogle the tanned fellow diners, sit at the edge of the alfresco space for the best views.

Dress Code

Beach chic: sarongs and shorts are fine at breakfast, though regulars dress to impress for dinner and Sunday brunch.

Hotel restaurant

One of the best places on St Barths, the open-air Restaurant Le Gaiac is an island hotspot, with a scene at dinner and Sunday brunch that rivals the sea views. Chef Jean-Christophe Gille serves modern French cuisine with distinct Caribbean flavour, including ultra-fresh produce harvested in the hotel’s own greenhouse. Signature dishes like Caribbean lobster with Creole rice, and a Caribbean chocolate soufflé. The wine list is the largest on the island, with more than 300 bottles sourced from around the world. The restaurant hosts a special Fish Market night each Tuesday, showcasing the local catch. 

Hotel bar

The walls of the small house bar, just off the entrance to the restaurant, are lined with exotic bottles from around the world. Dip into some Caribbean rum punch or a litchi martini; the terrace next to the restaurant is also an excellent place for wine and cocktails. 

Last orders

Breakfast is from 7am to 11am; lunch from 12noon to 2pm; dinner and drinks from 7pm until 10pm.

Room service

The full restaurant menu is available during restaurant hours; a limited menu, including salads and sandwiches, is offered at all other times. Full breakfast is available for delivery; arrange the timing the night before with staff.

Worth getting out of bed for

Hotel Le Toiny offers one excellent reason to get out of bed quite early: the breath-snatching sunrise views from all of the east-facing Villas. Once the you’ve taken it in — preferably over coffee and pastries — hitch a golf cart down to the beach to try stand-up paddleboarding, surfing the island’s best crests or snorkel to catch a glimpse of the dazzlingly bright fish. It’s hard to tire of beautiful Toiny Bay, but the island is home to 20 beaches, so there are plenty more to explore, including Shell Beach on the west coast for sunset, and the southern beaches, like serene Gouverneur and unspoiled Saline, where topless sunbathing is the norm for those brave enough to bare their assets. 

Local restaurants

Nab a table in the palm-shaded garden for lunch or dinner at L'Esprit (+ 590 590 52 46 10), near Saline Beach, for fusion dishes like tuna tartare with beet-ginger sorbet. Run by a husband-wife team, tiny beachside restaurant Maya’s (+ 590 590 27 73 73) changes its menu daily to reflect the very best fish and produce available in ceviche, green curry and inspired twists on Creole classics. The clientele might be as enticing as the food at hotspot Le Ti St Barth’s (+590 590 27 97 71), which stays open late with steak, cocktails, lively music and an inevitable dance party.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this boutique hotel in St Barths and unpacked their sarongs and spa products, a full account of their Caribbean luxury break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Hotel Le Toiny in St Barths…

Much as we fancy ourselves experts in (and advocates of) comfortable beds, Hotel Le Toiny’s perfectly grand, welcoming four-poster canopy beds may verge on criminally inviting. They make it all too tempting to laze away the morning, which might mean missing the hotel’s spectacular sunrise view. For early risers, throwing open the shutters or sneaking out onto the private terrace means panoramic views out over the sea from the secluded hilly perch on the eastern coast of St Barths. The ocean stretches interminably, with jewel-tone hues of green and blue bleeding into the brightening morning sky.

Hotel Le Toiny has many ways of encouraging deep relaxation: Once tucked into a quiet, spacious private Villa – with its heated infinity pool, sunloungers, a hammock and that gloriously massive bed – it’s surprisingly easy to forget that the rest of St Barths is a playground of mega-yachts, nightlife and impossibly chic boutiques. Unlike hotels plunked into the heart of the action, it sits in blissful, natural seclusion, with little more than crashing waves and soaring birds to compete for guests’ attention. Should guests venture from the Villa, it’s typically just to the beach below for surfing and paddleboarding, or off to the Serenity Spa for a shell massage at sunset. Or wait until the hotel springs to life each evening for dinner at Restaurant Le Gaiac, where French-Caribbean dishes and a generous wine list combine for one of the island’s best meals. Though diners converge from all across the island, those lucky enough to stay at Hotel Le Toiny have only a short stroll home to sublime sleep.
