Choosing my favourite destination is easy! I have just returned from a week’s stay at my favourite Caribbean island, St. Martin/St. Maarten. I love the dual personality of the island and enjoy exploring both the French and the Dutch neighbourhoods.
We celebrated my birthday by staying at the luxurious La Samanna Villas, on the French side. Our villa overlooked Baie Longue; a gorgeous view that inspired me daily. The “cool coastal” design of the rooms reflects the sandy beaches and azure water famous to the region. I fell in love with the watery blues, creamy beiges, and fresh greens of the space. The walls had a uniquely sophisticated use of corral and shells grounded by scrolls of black wrought iron.
