Travel Lust: La Banane St. Barts

A busy work (and play) schedule, as well as a broken computer, have kept me away from my usual online reads.  Well, I finally sat down and caught up with a few favorites (namely Lonny) and fell in love with this amazing tropical getaway featured in May’s issue.   La Banane is not your average beach resort nor the typical  luxury hotel.  The closest thing to a modern day Slim Aarons poolside setting, this nine bungalow compound nestled in a quite alcove of St. Barts is a hidden gem.   Formerly owned by a 1950s cabaret star, the recently renovated interior beams with bright and airy hues  and original teak and cane furnishings.  So good you’d almost rather stay indoors–well, not really.
