Beside the bluest of oceans and the whitest of beaches sits La Samanna, an exclusive hideaway with a wonderful spa. Recently redesigned, and with a cool new vibe, it sits in tropical gardens on Baie Longue. Despite its wealth of watersports and other diversions, most guests love to chill out in a private beach cabana or on their own terrace, lulled by the waves. There's romance in the air: the resort is often the scene of weddings and other celebrations. St Martin itself is a unique island that blends two European cultures with Caribbean verve.
