Long Bay serves as the setting for La Samanna, a veritable paradise that opens onto the ocean. Rendezvous of jetsetters and royals, this grand hotel has 83 rooms and suites, as well as eight villas - completely renovated by London's Muza Lab studios - hidden amongst lush gardens or along the most beautiful beach in Saint Martin.
There are 16 accommodation categories - from romantic rooms to cottages with private terraces - all with a sea view. There is no bling here - the decoration draws its inspiration from tropical style with dark and light wood furnishings taking centre stage. Similarly, fabrics showcase the natural colours found on the island, with subtle shades of blue, green, pink and peach.
The hotel's charm comes from this eclecticism. As expected, the service in the hotel and on the beautiful Long Bay private beach is impeccable. At the indoor/outdoor spa, meanwhile, expert therapists and masseurs do their utmost to make your stay a restful, rejuvenating experience. And at sunset, when the sky is dressed in orange shades and the sand is burnished gold, La Samanna becomes magical.
