We have just come across one of the coolest hotels maybe ever, La Banane in St. Barts on The Cool Hunter. St. Barts or Saint Barthélemy is a volcanic island fully encircled by shallow reefs, located in the Caribbean and is a popular tourist destination during the winter holiday season, especially the rich and famous during the Christmas and New Year period. The language, cuisine and culture, are distinctly French.
La Banane on St. Barts is an exclusive, retro-chic hotel of nine distinctive bungalows. This hotel’s cool vibe of the 1950s is not a fake as it has a great storied past and its stories are based on real life, real events, real personalities. La Banane’s founding father was the late Jean-Marie Rivière, a luminary of the Parisian cabaret world, who was often photographed with Zaza Gabor, Brigitte Bardot and other stars. – The Cool Hunter
