Martinique is perhaps the most romantic of all the islands in the Caribbean. With its architecture, music and fashion, and exquisite French cuisine, the island of Martinique is often referred to as “Paris in the Tropics.” Spanning 425 square miles, Martinique is the largest of all the windward islands, and certainly one of the most impressive. Boasting beautiful beaches and a lush tropical landscape, it makes a wonderful vacation or honeymoon destination. Here are the top resorts in Martinique.
South of Fort de France, you will find Cap Est Lagoon Resort & Spa. While Martinique may possess the beauty of Paris, it boasts the hospitality of someplace altogether different. (For those of you who have vacationed in Paris, you know what I’m talking about). The service here is friendly and cordial, and the resort itself is a spectacle, a wholly magnificent treat for the eyes (and all of the other senses as well). The atmosphere is soothing yet invigorating. The resort offers fifty suites, a pair of terrific restaurants, two bars, a tennis court, a swimming pool, and a beach. Visit Cap Est Lagoon Resort online at capest.com or call 800-735-2478 for suite rates and availability.
Another of Martinique’s finest resorts is Sofitel Bakoua Martinique. This charming West Indies-style resort offers 133 rooms, six suites, three restaurants, a pair of tennis courts, a beach and a swimming pool, the likes of which you wouldn’t believe. Service is very good, and the nightly entertainment is enticing enough to draw you back to the resort every day come sundown. Located across from the magnificent Fort de France Bay, the resort also offers some truly breathtaking views. For recreation, there is an exceptional eighteen-hole golf course nearby. Visit the resort online at sofitel.com or call 0596-66-02-02 for further details.
Newly renovated, Club Med Buccaneer’s Creek is now better than ever. Fifty million dollars was poured into this beauty, which is one of the Caribbean’s oldest Clubs. This resort has turned out fabulous, with an additional forty-four suites, a floating bar, and a tremendous seaside swimming pool. Moreover, the resort is situated on one of the island’s very best beaches. Upscale and luxurious, Club Med Buccaneer’s Creek is now family-friendly (it was once adults-only). Visit them online at clubmed.com or call 0596-76-72-72 for more information.
Enjoy your stay at one of the top resorts on the magnificent island of Martinique. Bon Jour!
