Less than 10-minutes from the airport, this tried-and-true spot on St. Maarten makes for the ultimate Caribbean stay. It evokes the feeling of a European seaside retreat thanks to its charm and décor. The property is private and upscale without being pretentious; there really is a really calming vibe to a stay at Belmond La Samanna.
This spot feels like a high-end boutique hotel with traditional Caribbean charm, mixed with an almost Mediterranean flair.
The rooms are light and airy, all recently refurbished. Décor is made complete with pops of color and local artwork. The hotel rooms are located in white two-story adobe buildings amongst the hotels tropical grounds. The second floor rooms have great views but the first floor rooms are just steps to the white sand, so it’s really all about personal preference. The three or four bedroom clifftop villas are grand and spacious, complete with private pools and expansive panoramic views over their famous beach, said to be the best on the island.
The property offers guests two pools to choose from, depending on their mood. There’s one larger one by the main lobby and then an infinity pool over at the beach club that’s a big hit!
Unwind in the candlelit Caribbean spa resort, where treatment rooms open out onto lush tropical gardens. Recline for an indulgent Roucou pre-tanning treatment before hitting the sun-drenched beach; relax with a tropical Lomi Lomi massage; or add a little polish to your vacation with a classic French manicure. There’s no better place to relax.
The Beach Club has a buzzy feel, similar to St Barths or St. Tropez. Fun music, sexy lounge and bar. From fresh local seafood to simple sandwiches or fish tacos, the restaurant has it all. The other restaurant –only open for dinner – is more high-end fine dining. This spot is great for a special occasion or a quiet night in. Think amuse bouche, white table cloths, candlelit tables.
Whether you’re starting your evening with an aperitif or winding down after dinner, Baie Longue Bar is the perfect place to absorb the island joie de vivre. A variety of punch spirits and the pick of international wines generously stock the bar. For the ultimate Belmond La Samanna experience, relax with a refreshing gin-based cocktail while looking out over the turquoise horizon.
This property is well suited for either couples or families as it can be very romantic or child-friendly, depending on what you make of it.
On a rocky outcrop overlooking a sandy beach and the Caribbean Sea, this premium beachfront resort is 5 km from Princess Juliana International Airport.
