La Samanna, A Belmond Hotel
Why We Love La Samanna
Welcome to the the quintessential French West Indies hotel. With candy-striped lounge chairs lining the shore of Baie Lonque Beach, La Samanna is the epitome of effortless luxury.
Start your day with a quick lesson with the resort’s on-site tennis pro. Then head to L’Oursin for breakfast al fresco. After that, it’s time to head into town for some of the Caribbean’s best shopping and a light lunch. Return to the hotel and stake your claim at the nearest cabana for sunset cocktails. Return to your cliffside villa to freshen up and then walk to La Spiaggia for a scrumptious, Italian dinner on the beach.
Cap Juluca, A Belmond Hotel
Why We Love Cap Juluca
Cap Juluca embodies what it means to be a breath of fresh air. Each area of the resort is no more than a few steps away from the white sands of Cap Juluca’s famed platinum beach.
Awake to the sound of the waves right outside your door. Treat yourself to Eggs Hemingway at Cip’s by Cipriani to kick off the day. Next, explore the shores of Anguilla on horseback OR mosey to Arawak Spa for a terrace massage. After your morning activity, it’s time to hit the beach! Enjoy the sun and maybe even a couple of cocktails until it’s time to freshen up before your sunset yacht cruise. After your evening voyage, return to Cap Juluca for a romantic dinner at Pimms.
Maroma, A Belmond Hotel
Why We Love Maroma
Nestled in the heart of Mexico’s Riviera Maya, Maroma is an easy transfer from the airport, but still maintains the coveted feeling of a hidden gem. The hotel showcases a striking juxtaposition between the Riviera Mayan jungle and Mexican Caribbean sea.
Immerse yourself in the rich, Mayan culture. Infusing details of the local culture throughout the property in the recent renovation, Maroma offers visitors a luxury, Mexico experience that cannot be found anywhere else.
