Make La Réserve your home as you prepare to explore the city of Port-au-Prince. Indulge in this cozy spot made for those who want to hang out but also don’t mind exploring the country.
Small but quaint, La Reserve is a great spot for the adventurous traveller; one who likes to equally split their time between the city and the bar. It’s located in a secluded corner of Pétion-Ville at one of the entrances of the quiet neighborhood of Berthé. Whether you choose to go enjoy the chilly mountains of Kenscoff or explore Port-au-Prince, La Réserve offers the perfect space to take a break from it all. Once checked-in, visitors will notice that while La Reserve is a small hotel, it offers the benefit of quiet, private, but also personable services.
La Réserve is all-things Haitian. From its architecture to its decor, the owners of the hotel made sure that it embodied the essence of Haitian culture. All its rooms are equipped with a TV, A/C and internet access and are each decorated with Haitian art accent pieces reflecting the calm, tropical theme of this hotel.
What's for breakfast?
Besides its beautiful garden, La Réserve’s main point of attraction is its exquisite food. Every guest can indulge in the breakfast buffet which includes your typical breakfast staples like omelets or french toast, but the hotel’s restaurant also serves as a great introduction to typical haitian breakfasts, so if you’re ever in the mood to explore, make sure to check-out the daily breakfast bar.
How about lunch and dinner?
If it wasn’t already clear, La Réserve is known nationally as one of the best places to get Haitian food. The restaurant regularly hosts brunch on Sundays but offers daily choices for Haitian staples, whether you decide to go with a customer-acclaimed plate of griot or an incredible Goat with Rum stew, La Réserve is the place to be.
Is there a bar?
The hotel strives to modernize its cuisine and excels particularly in the drinks department. La Réserve has a set of trademark drinks available but also offers a series of cocktails made with freshly pressed juice. Make sure to enjoy a drink in the sports lounge or by the pool table where soccer games are often streamed on the big screen, making La Réserve the hub for sports events as well.
Activities and amenities
La Réserve is often home to a series of cultural and musical events. It’s known for hosting events during the PAPJazz Festival and is the venue of choice for local artists’ events. After a day of exploring, you have the option to offer yourself one of many types of massages available to guests; you can also use their on-site gym or get a mani-pedi in before heading out.
Within a short walk you can find...
La Réserve’s location is one of the most convenient as it’s located in a secluded area dense with greenery but it’s also literally steps away from Petion-Ville and Montagne Noire, a road carved into a mountain giving access to the beautiful areas of Kenscoff, Thomassin, and Laboule. Travellers often find themselves discovering this part of the country, whether it’s through a hike for the scenic and green view or for the hidden waterfall of Fermathe. La Réserve is also really close to Place Saint Pierre and Place Boyer where you can either hang out, try out some fritay (Haitian street food), or simply go to a cafe or restaurant.
Need to know (before you go)
La Réserve is also one of the main spots for sports broadcasting in the city so if you are travelling during a particularly intense soccer season, expect the place to be a little crowded. Unfortunately pets are not allowed at the hotel.
