Belmond La Samanna, the leading luxury resort in St Martin, is back on the scene.
Following a restyle, the resort reopened its doors this week, just as Belmond was acquired by global luxury giant LVMH.
The resort had been shuttered since Hurricane Irma last year.
The resort’s 83 rooms and public spaces, have been given a refresh by interior design firm MuzaLab, London.
Pastel blues, greens, pinks and peaches are inspired by the natural tones of the Caribbean Sea, and shells and corals and are used to complement botanical prints on fabrics, artworks, lighting and mirrors.
As guests explore the newly refreshed Baie Longue Bar, L’Oursin restaurant and main building, these color palettes aim to evoke a sense of place and allude to French romance.
elmond La Samanna has also reopened its beachfront French restaurant, Trellis – now named L’Oursin – where chefs serve up food with European finesse.
The resort’s La Cave Wine Cellar is one of the largest private wine cellars in the Caribbean.
