The Perfect Mix

From the get-go, Clement Meniaud and Jules Gualdoni had the shared vision to create the perfect mix of rustic and luxurious lifestyle at La Cabane. Carving away the ultimate coastal chic getaway in the charming Batts Rock beach, together they have designed a sweet escape.

But don’t take our word for it. See for yourself. Read more about our personal stories below.

Clement Meniaud

Co-Founder

When architect Clement Meniaud sketched La Cabane, he broke the mould of the traditional beachfront shak, designing an elevated bar that was full of vibe yet void of pretense. Clement, who specializes in space distribution, has brought his take to numerous Caribbean villas, restaurants and hotels. Starting with an abandoned beachfront, he carved out the backdrop for La Cabane. Clement is the fourth generation of a family of designers and architects, and has made Barbados his home since 2012.

Jules Gualdoni

Co-Founder

Portobello Road. Dover Street. All former hotspots of Jules Gualdoni. La Cabane’s tropically-spirited owner made his mark in central London by launching a deluge of bars and nightclubs. After a decade, he decided it was time to escape to a destination that could satiate his obsession with rum. After establishing The Cliff’s cocktail lounge, Jules soon changed pace again to build a rustic Caribbean rum shack of his own. Et voilà La Cabane.

Ryan Hinds

Head Chef

Ryan is a skilled chef forged from the heat of Barbados’ top fine dining kitchens. His seafood-forward palate and use of local, organic ingredients embodies the intention of the menu at La Cabane. Fresh caught fish is grilled to perfection in an open kitchen that nurtures a full sensory experience. Watch, smell and engage as your dishes are prepared by a talented and affable Head Chef. Ryan’s menu is delightfully Mediterranean with Caribbean influences, and he can’t wait to welcome you to his kitchen.
