Best B&B in the Caribbean
Stylish contemporary inn offering first class amenities at affordable rates. Steps from beautiful Lorient beach, the Normandie Hotel is a tranquil oasis where guests enjoy complimentary breakfast and late afternoon wine tastings. The heart of this small 8-room hideaway is a very private deck and pool, set in a lush garden of native gaiac and oleanders. Completely renovated, interior spaces are modern and minimalist and make extensive use of glass block to filter the dazzling Caribbean light. The nautical spirit of the legendary French ocean liner, the S.S. Normandie, is reflected in the porthole doors and dramatic art deco ship posters of the 1930s.
