GRAND CASE — Bobbing in turquoise water, Ti’ Punch in hand on a shiny Sunday morning.

It’s at moments like these when you’re reminded of those oft-repeated component parts of a Caribbean trip: sun, sand and sea.

Yes, St Martin has them.

But even the greatest ingredients need a master mixologist. That’s where the hotel comes in.

To take those component parts and turn them into something special, something more, isn’t always easy.

This boutique hotel in a town deservedly famous for its food understands that alchemy of converting sun, sand and sea into seaside bliss.

The three-tiered, low-scale property has an oceanfront restaurant, Sunset Cafe, and straddles two beautiful beaches.

And it had an overly friendly staff that could teach a thing or two to a number of resorts I’ve stayed at recently.

But it had that something extra, the x-factor, the thing that makes a place great.

It had a soul.

In other words, the perfect kind of small Caribbean hotel.
