Pool anyone? The place to lounge at La Samanna

French St. Martin exemplifies the Euro-infused Caribbean, where a brie-slathered baguette and blinding white-sand beaches are in perfect harmony.

The island, just east of the British Virgin Islands, is half Dutch St. Maarten, home to the main airport and several clubs and casinos, while the quieter French side is known for pristine beaches and the quaint town of Marigot.

The 81-room La Samanna, managed by Orient Express Hotels, is a low-key, high-class beachfront property offering villas amid lush tropical foliage, a refurbished spa and 1,300 square feet of meeting space.

Other posh properties in the French sector include the 233-room Le Méridien L’Habitation and the 144-room Le Méridien Le Domaine.
