Saint Martin is a vibrant blend of Caribbean paradise and French sophistication, a sun-drenched tropical isle where the sky is forever blue and pleasure is a way of life.
Traveling as a couple to a Caribbean hotspot. There used to be a time when my husband and I would go away alone and put a lot of pressure on ourselves to have fun or do the romantic things expected of a couple that can’t always get away alone. Over the years, we’ve learned to leave those expectations behind and just ease into the flow of whatever each destination has to offer.
Set beside St Martin’s finest beach, lapped by the Caribbean Sea, La Samanna Resort and Spa is the ultimate luxury resort. Constantly ranked among the region’s top ten hotel retreats, it is a garden paradise in which to enjoy an al fresco massage, or lie in a hammock, lulled by the waves.
There are thirty-seven beaches on the beautiful Caribbean island of St. Martin/St. Maarten with locations almost evenly divided between the French and Dutch owned sides of the area. Although both languages are “officially” used, English is almost universally spoken. The American dollar is the currency of choice on the Dutch side of the island.
