La Toubana Hôtel & Spa, The Guadeloupe Islands - Full-Time Travel
La Toubana Hôtel & Spa

After a two-year, $15.3 million restyle, this luxe property set along the southern coast of Grande-Terre in Sainte-Anne was given five stars — with good reason! The posh-yet-unpretentious stay features 33 bungalows, 12 suites and three expansive, Guy Benoit-designed villas — complete with infinity pool and sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea and neighboring Marie-Galante.

Spa offerings include Ayurvedic massages and hydrating body wraps; but if we’re being honest, the view of turquoise waves from the lounge deck alone is enough to send you into a calming state of trance.
