After complete refurbishment, Hotel Manapany on the island of St. Barts reopened in March under new ownership.
Located in Anse des Cayes, the property closed its doors when acquired by French hospitality group B Signature in 2016, when extensive transformation began.
With only some walls retained, the public areas and guest rooms were completely rebuilt and redesigned by Parisian architect Francois Champsaur to reflect the nature and spirit of the island. A new spa that faces the sea was also added.
The Manapany offers 43 beautifully-appointed rooms & suites (35 room and 8 suites) facing the ocean, are a blend of contemporary French design, with a tropical Caribbean touch.
The open-air, seaside restaurant and bar is led by Executive Chef Edouard Fabius. The focus is on fresh and accessible foods – emphasizing organic ingredients and mostly local produce, including fresh fish from the island, delivered daily by local fishermen.
The resort’s recently added spa offers holistic therapies that honor the local heritage and utilize medicinal herbs while incorporating the latest modern techniques and methods.
The signature bio-aesthetic care collection uses organic products from Dr. Hauschka.
The Manapany also features 2 resort – style swimming pools including one reserved for adults, a fitness center with a range of workout equipment and Pilate and Yoga classes, a game room with ping-pong, table soccer and video games and many other services.
