ONE OF A KIND – Belmond La Samanna, St. Martin
Belmond La Samanna brings a luxurious touch to the natural beauy and charm of St Martin, with fantastic food, spacious suites and the best sunsets in the Caribbean
It’s easy to leave your cares behind when you’re gazing out over pure-white sands, fringed with palms and lapped by the turquoise Caribbean Sea. It’s even easier when you’re doing so from your spacious ocean-view suite at Belmond La Samanna — the most exclusive resort on the beautiful island of St Martin.
“AS SOON AS YOU CHECK IN TO YOUR ROOM, YOU’LL KNOW YOU’RE SOMEWHERE TRULY SPECIAL”
Belmond La Samanna is an elegant contemporary resort, perched right on the soft white sands of Baie Longue and set among lush greenery, where everything is designed for pure enjoyment and relaxation. From the moment you check in to your luxuriously appointed room or suite, many with sea views and private balconies, you’ll know you’ve arrived somewhere special.
That’s a feeling you’ll become familiar with at Belmond Samanna, from the year-round warm sea — where you can kick back in a cabana, or enjoy complimentary watersports — to the stellar lineup of fantastic restaurants and bars, which range from the formal to the relaxed.
Begin the day with a lavish breakfast at Interlude, then head to the Beach Bar for lunch, where you can dine on grilled fish and light bites right at the foot of the ocean. Later, try Trellis for locally caught lobster in an elegant bistro setting, with wine from the private cellar — it houses more than 20,000 bottles. For a special occasion, you can even dine in the cellar’s private dining room. If laid-back dining and pristine beaches aren’t relaxing enough, the decadent Elysée Spa will soon have you in a blissfully tranquil state. Choose from a first-class selection of massages and treatments, using products by Sisley and Pure Altitude. Or just pull up a lounger by the infinity pool and soak up the Caribbean sun —then watch the spectacular sunset at the end of the day, with a signature cocktail in your hand.
Beyond Belmond La Samanna itself, there’s the whole of beautiful St Martin to explore, from the quieter French side (on which the resort sits) to the popular Dutch half. There are more than 450 restaurants to seek out, plus bars, nightclubs, casinos and outstanding beaches.
But you’ll find the very best of St Martin at Belmond La Samanna. It’s paradise, with added luxury.
