La Samanna, a belmond Hotel

Serene, sundrenched and sophisticated, St Martin is one of the coolest spots in the Caribbean. It’s here, in a secluded beachfront location, that you find La Samanna, a Belmond Hotel.


Set on a private, mile-long beach in Baie Longue, this pioneering resort still channels the glamour of the days when Jackie Onassis, Robert Redford and David Bowie strolled its sands. Countless stellar visitors have followed in their footsteps since the resort first opened in 1974. Many guests return year after year, drawn to the blissful seclusion and the talcum-white beach where turtles make their nests and hammocks sway among the palms. It feels like a private retreat filled with friends, where a chic beach party might erupt at any moment.


Elegant, airy suites, villas and cottages frame idyllic views of the Caribbean Sea. Lush, tropical grounds teem with exotic birds and blooms. A wealth of facilities can be enjoyed on site. They include two swimming pools, luxurious beach cabanas, a spa, fitness centre, tennis courts and yoga classes. At the watersports centre, everything from kayaks to Seabobs is available.

World-class culinary adventures are inspired by the island’s French heritage. Fresh delicacies can be accompanied by a fine vintage from the hotel’s 12,000-bottle wine cellar. The atmospheric cellar also hosts sommelier-led degustations and private, curated dinners.

For exploring the island, activities range from snorkel cruises to horseriding and gourmet tours. An easy drive from the international airport, this is one paradise that’s within reach.
