La Toubana Hôtel & Spa

Ste-Anne, Grande-Terre, 97180, Guadeloupe

Few hotels on Guadeloupe command such a panoramic view of the sea—spanning four islands, no less, and all the suites offer full sea views, some breathtaking. The cliff-side suite offers the most dramatic vistas, but two two-bedroom suites have private pools. Many bungalows have some kind of view, even if it's only partial. But all accommodations have kitchenettes, furnished balconies, and high-end bedding with colorful accents. Three sumptuously decorated luxury villas have four bedrooms and private pools, and have proven particularly popular with Americans. In front of the restaurant, with its own bar, swimmers in the infinity pool feel that they can almost touch the surf. A small cove, far below and dramatically lighted by night, offers swimming on a private beach. The pier, chaises, and beach restaurant all help draw sophisticated yachties and French expats, who make it wildly popular on weekends. All that plus a deluxe ecospa with a sauna and fitness room makes this one of the island's in places. It often closes for a refresh in August.
