The surroundings, space, activities and welcoming staff make the Domaine de Petite Anse particularly pleasant. Located on Basse-Terre, it is not suitable for those who like white sandy beaches which are located around two hours away by car.
The Domaine de Petite Anse is located 3 miles from the village of Bouillante; about fifteen minutes by car from the Cousteau reserve, the Pigeon islet and Malendure Rock, which are great for divers. It is also within easy reach of Guadeloupe national park.
Allow an hour to get there from Pointe-à-Pitre airport.
The rooms were entirely renovated at end of 2000, with floating parquet (not lino) and new furniture. The hotel has an excellent location, 15 minutes from the major nature sites in Basse-Terre: the Cousteau marine reserve and the route de la Traversée.
A hire car is needed.
Opened in 1993, the Petite Anse has 135 rooms in two 3-storey buildings without a lift, set within a large, well-maintained garden. A little further away, 10 Creole villas, each with 4 apartments, are also part of the Domaine.
The 135 rooms are not very large. They were a bit bleak (lino and basic furniture) when we visited but were entirely renovated at the end of 2000.
All have a balcony. They are fitted with a bath, telephone, television, fridge, and individual air conditioning.
In addition to the bedroom furniture, the 10 villas, formed of four 645-ft² apartments for 2 to 6 people, have a kitchenette and a large terrace with garden furniture. They need to be renovated.
1 good restaurant serving French and Creole cuisine; 1 bar in the centre of a beautiful open space in dark wood, decorated with colonial-style furniture and overlooking the Caribbean Sea.
The hotel is a two minute walk from a charming little public beach sheltered from the wind.
