Located five minutes away from the town of Gustavia and the St. Jean beach site, Hotel Manapany, owned by Anne Jousse, offers Caribbean-inspired luxury with a feel of St.-Barts roots. The owner wanted to recreate the memory of when she first visited the island when it was still natural, Bohemian, and not commercialized. She thought of something that would serve privacy and immersion in the wild while exposing the beauty of St. Barts.
