A Postcard from Belmond La Samanna, St Martin
I am officially in paradise. From the moment we touched down in St Martin, my love affair with this utterly spell-binding island began, and by the time we’d arrived at Belmond La Samanna, our gorgeous hotel, I was already captivated by the beautiful setting. White-washed villas are nestled on a rocky outcrop, right on the waterfront overlooking a huge white sand beach - it’s one of the most picturesque and serene places I’ve ever stayed – perfect for completely switching off.
My Plunge Pool Suite is absolutely dreamy, we have so much space! And I can’t draw my gaze away from the expanse of startling blue sea gently dancing across the sand in the hazy heat of the day. Yachts glide across the bay with the sun shimmering on their sails, as I slip into my private plunge pool on the veranda and watch the sun slowly sinking into the sea, indulging in a delicious rum punch. What a start to my Caribbean holiday – I couldn’t feel more relaxed!
On our first day we booked a Beach Cabana – so worth it! We were looked after like royalty in our private tent, the white curtains rippling in the breeze, and our complimentary bottle of Champagne was such a special treat to start our holiday in style, brought straight to our sun loungers by the wonderful staff. I took a stroll along the shore in the morning and when I got back, we had fresh lobster brought to our tent so we could enjoy it under a parasol with a view to the ocean. It doesn’t get much better than this.
There’s something incredibly peaceful about La Samanna - I spent a morning reading in one of the hammocks in the garden and fell asleep to the sound of the birds and gentle breeze, then floated in the infinity pool for what felt like hours. Life here is blissfully slow and I want to stay forever! In the afternoon we took a cruise around the island, my favourite excursion yet (if I had to pick!), and couldn’t believe it when dolphins started playing all around us and jumping inches from the boat, it was absolutely magical. I’m so glad we decided to actually venture further out one day and get to know St Martin; the towns are colourful and vibrant, just what you’d expect from the Caribbean, and full of characters.
My favourite evening was when we had a private dinner at La Cave, the hotel’s wine cellar. It was so romantic and the food and wine were delicious. It’s definitely one of the most indulgent experiences at the hotel and an absolute must. Foodies just love La Samanna, the Trellis restaurant is amazing and the chef prepares exquisite French cuisine, all light and tasty.
Next time I plan on splashing out on one of the luxury villas with a few friends or the whole family. They look stunning, all white-washed and palatial, with private terraces and pools – perfect for a special occasion. You can even charter private powerboats to go off exploring the bays, which sounds amazing!
Belmond La Samanna has been an experience of the utmost luxury - a trip of a lifetime!

Coco Bodo Hithi, Maldives
Coco Bodo Hithi is a romantic and peaceful Maldivian haven; the ultimate beach escape and one of the most alluring resorts in the Maldives. Coco's 'snorkelling with manta rays' lets you see these graceful creatures up close, and amazing diving opportunities to explore the coral reefs are even more reason to jet off to such a beautiful and remote paradise. Treat yourself to a stay at one of the ‘Coco Residences’ for a luxuriously private over-water living space with gorgeous views, as well as preferential access to the divine Asian fusion cuisine at Stars restaurant. For something a little special, why not take a barefoot stroll along the beach after dinner and then watch your choice of classic movie at the private cinema whilst sipping cool Champagne in the warmth of the evening. You're spoilt for choice with an over-water fitness space, yoga and Tai chi pavilions, a large infinity pool and tennis. To really make the most of this destination, make sure to go on a sunset cruise, as the Maldives are famed for their spectacular sunsets.

Fringed by one of the most glorious white sand beaches in the Maldives and surrounded by a lagoon of bright turquoise water and coral banks, Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu is in an amazing location for a luxury beach escape. This resort is about getting away from it all and enjoying a slower pace of life. Villas don’t have televisions so take a good book and truly unwind. The private cinema, in typical Coco style, is perfect for spending an evening sitting back, relaxing and watching a movie under the stars. For a really indulgent experience, the Sunset Lagoon Villas are to die for; their prime location boasts the most exquisite views, the spacious private terraces are incredibly peaceful, having a glass bottom pool is absolutely amazing and you can enjoy spa treatments in your own private retreat.

Anantara Dhigu Maldives Resort, Maldives
Anantara Dhigu is perfect for anyone looking to make the most of its beautiful Maldivian beaches, and guests here have the rare benefit of choice, as each day you can pick a new spot to enjoy blissful peace and quiet, looking out to an expanse of uninterrupted clear skies. Floor-to-ceiling windows open up to stunning ocean vistas and marry luxurious accommodation with the natural beauty of the Indian Ocean. Explore the natural lagoon and surrounding waters on daily guided snorkelling trips, dive on the house wreck, a short boat ride away, or try the underwater rocket which will have you zipping along like a dolphin at 20km per hour! With three sensational restaurants here and access to three more at Anantara’s sister hotel, Anantara Veli, foodies will love the variety of cuisines to try. We’d recommend learning about traditional Maldivian cooking with a lesson in the Chef’s Garden, where you can try your hand at creating a local dish, and then indulging in the final product. If you’re travelling with the family, kids will have a true Maldivian adventure out on the resort’s dhoni boats, and back on dry land will have the Dhoni Kidz Club to explore, as well as a tree house to play in.

Carlisle Bay, Antigua
Carlisle Bay steals the show in Antigua offering the finest experience of beach luxury with an unquestionably trendy vibe. It is situated on a gorgeous bay where there are no other resorts, a completely idyllic setting and the perfect destination for beach lovers to escape to. There’s an instant sense of calm and relaxation here, and towards the end of the bay lie beautiful mangroves, which are great for kayaking and looking out for the nesting bird life. We love the Bay Suites right at the end of the beach, which capture the most phenomenal sunsets. These suites are also the quietest and have priority access to the fabulous new beach cabanas, as well as being next to the Jetty Grill restaurant. Adult-only and overlooking the water, the Jetty Grill’s speciality is taking the catch of the day, putting it straight on the grill and serving it with fresh salad and delicious wine. A wonderful beach dining experience; no frills, just divine fresh food.
