To explore and discover any Caribbean island while staying in a luxury hotel often means the finest scenery, accommodation, and dining as well as access to upscale guest services such as spa treatments, gourmet meals delivered to your door, and much more. In Martinique, luxury hotels are not that plentiful, yet the few four and five star hotels offer the finest amenities and services. Martinique luxury resorts are aren't abundant either, though there are several very accommodating and lovely resorts to choose from, especially along the southern shores.
The most popular Martinique accommodation choice remains the Hotel Sofitel Bakoua. This resort is considered to be one of the top choices in luxury Martinique accommodation and encourages visitors to relax, unwind, and enjoy all the charms of the island. Once a prominent, sweeping colonial estate, the Sofitel retains many original features adding a distinct French Caribbean allure to the buildings and grounds. With an abundance of tropical gardens winding down to the ocean, the white sand beaches and rocky peaks are stunning accents to the local scenery. Renowned for its lavish suites and many things to do outdoors — such as golf, tennis and horseback riding — no other Martinique luxury hotels compare to this one.
One of the only Martinique luxury resorts is the Cap Est Lagoon Resort and Spa. Situated on an amazing turquoise lagoon, Cap Est boasts style, luxury, and unbeatable ambiance. With white sand basins only a short ride away and the stunning Francois Isles nearby, Cap Est is set upon some of the finest real estate on Martinique. Though many more Martinique luxury resorts are in the works for the future, Cap Est still offers top accommodation and premier services to visitors. Some of the top guest services include the plush Spa by Guerlain and the eighteen-hole Robert Trent Jones golf course. Luxurious sailing trips, deep-sea fishing excursions, several tennis courts, and many watersports are also on the roster for guests. With the indoors adorned with natural island materials such as hand-carved wood and bamboo, simplicity mixed with understated beauty permeates the look and feel of Cap Est.
With more visitors heading to the island each year, Martinique luxury hotels are booked quite quickly, especially during the winter months. Le Plein Soleil is a wonderful alternative to the larger and often crowded Martinique luxury resorts on the island. Characterized by vibrant tropical purples and reds along with earth toned subtle hues, small yet luxurious cottages are available for Martinique holidays. Simply stunning views from the cottages' terraces along with completely updated interiors offer guests affluent Martinique accommodation laced with unassuming privacy. Replete with the most current designs from Bangkok and offering private plunge pools and gardens, Le Plein Soleil is certainly a wise choice for those who appreciate the finer things in life. Add a terraced restaurant with a phenomenal view and going home gets extremely difficult!
Martinique accommodation comes in all shapes and sizes and presents opportunities for all tastes and budgets. The island is one that may not offer as many monumental upscale resorts and hotels as some other Caribbean islands, but that's all part of its unique charm and feel. Whether staying near the many terrific beaches in the south or closer to Fort de France (and all the fantastic shopping and dining found throughout the city), you'll be certain to find many attractions and amenities to add a special flavor to your holidays.
