Concierge.com's insider take:
It's always a party at Thierry de Badereau's beachside boutique hotel. The same hip crowd that dances on the tables at the owners' wildly popular Le Ti St. Barth bar also holds court nightly at the hotel's Casbah-style outdoor eatery, La Plage, site of occasional (and wacky) theme nights. The 12 rooms (two on the beach) match the mood, with bright colors, chic canopy beds, high ceilings, and tiled baths. All have private terraces or patios. Not recommended for those seeking seclusion.
