Constantly ranked among the region’s top ten hotels, La Samanna is a garden paradise in which to enjoy an alfresco massage, or lie in a hammock, lulled by the waves. Perhaps take a day cruise around the island or savour a sumptuous private dinner by the shore. There’s always a touch of romance in the air.

Belmond La Samanna

St. Martin - Deluxe Resort

Belmond La Samanna Resort is nestled on a hill, surrounded by 55 acres of lush gardens and overlooking a spectacular beachfront. A complete resort in itself, from its private beach to its poolside terrace, la Samanna is everything you could wish for in a Caribbean hideaway. The resort offers 81 guestrooms and suites in 13 two-story villas arrayed above the beach, in two two-story villas on a limestone cliff above the sea, and on three floors above the lobby in the main building. All rooms and suites feature balconies or ground-floor patios with Caribbean Sea views.

The French side of the island of Saint Martin is really French: cafes with outdoor sitting areas and typical character. There are hidden hotspots to explore and enjoy sipping cocktails at the local bars. Head to historic Fort Louis for the day and visit the Marigot market to sample local delights.
