Oyster knows what travelers look for in their hotels. When we review properties around the world, we evaluate how every feature stacks up against the competition, from the rooms to the pools to the restaurants. So if you're planning a posh trip and need a place to start, you've come to the right place. Take a look at our top picks for luxury in St. Martin, and get inspired!
Easily the most luxurious resort in St. Martin, the 55-acre La Samanna resort brings tranquility to an otherwise tourist-filled island. Featuring two beautiful pools, an extensive wine cellar, a yoga and Pilates studio, a European-style spa, and the island's most pristine beach, this 81-room, eight-villa retreat is hard to beat. The vibe is about as fancy as it gets for St. Martin, so of course everything -- from the nightly rates to the dinners and spa treatments -- comes at a sky-high cost.
Located on picturesque Dawn Beach, the 314-room Westin has an extensive list of amenities and activities (such as the on-site casino and the lovely spa -- one of the best on the island). It features mostly ocean-view rooms (with modern extras), a beautiful double-decker infinity-edge pool, and expansive beach grounds, and its several restaurants and bars mean you never have to leave this luxurious hotel if you don't want to.
