In a Nutshell:

Perched on top of a cliff overlooking a secluded private beach, Belmond La Samanna is everything you want from a luxury Caribbean resort. Here, you can spend your day relaxing in a cabana sipping champagne, make the most of the azure ocean with water sports activities, or head into Marigot town to soak up the French Caribbean flair of the St. Martin.

EDITOR'S TIP: Splurge on one of the private suites with a rooftop plunge pool. They’re the best for afternoon naps and the private sunset views.
