There is not enough we can say about the space, location and staff. This trip we stayed in the Beige and Yellow Rooms (past 2 trips we stayed in the Green and Red Rooms). The set-up is so serene and private. You can choose to go to any beach or take a private ride to Pinel Island where guests of...

Everything about Karibuni Lodge is wonderful (location, ambiance, privacy, security, service, breakfast) EXCEPT for the mattress, pillows and bed linens which definitely need to be upgraded for a truly luxury stay.

We just returned from a 7-day stay in the Beige room of Le Karibuni Lodge. We thoroughly enjoyed it, and it served as a great home base to return to from our daily activities. The rooms and adjoining patio/deck/porch are spacious, the plunge pool adds a nice touch (especially after a full day at the beach), the free continental breakfast...

We only stayed for a couple of days (side trip from Anguilla) but can not recommend Karibuni enough. We had two suites...didn't expect a little kitchen in each suite but loved it. The pool was small but great. The day on Pinel was fantastic and we will repeat. There was a boat that took us there and an amazing waiter...

We stayed in the Pink room with the private pool and it was SO worth the price. Staying here was the highlight of our trip to St. Martin. We rented a car at the airport and drove to Karibuni Lodge. It was a little difficult to find, and the one road getting to it was under repair, but once you...

From the moment we arrived we were given such a lovely and friendly welcome by Karl who showed us to our accommodation where we were stunned by the most beautiful view. The room was very large and comfortable with a very large deck overlooking the swimming pool. Included in the room rate is a free ferry to Pinel Island with...

We chose St. Martin in part because we heard wonderful things about Karibuni; we are so glad we did. We were looking for a destination to celebrate our anniversary and Karibuni Lodge was perfect. We were welcomed by Karl who could not have been more helpful or accommodating. This service extended to every person we encountered. Truly a family run...
