Hotel 1829 was built in 1829 by Alexander Lavalette. Lavalette was a well-known rich French sailor and trader. Initially, this building was not a hotel until 1906. The building was originally one of the largest structures in that region of town, and was lavishly decorated with amazing pieces from every corner of the world. When it comes to architecture, the hotel is unique and outstanding because of its U-shaped design.
Today, Hotel 1829’s kitchen is now the hotel’s bar. It is home to the Rumpourium Rum Tasting Gallery, the Bar at Hotel 1829, and the Amber Waterfall Fountain. This handcrafted fountain is made up of over 12,000 authentic pieces of Amber jewels.
