Few hotels on Guadeloupe command such a panoramic view of the sea—spanning four islands, no less. The cliff-side suite offers the most dramatic vistas; the two newer two-bedroom suites have ocean views and private pools. All bungalows have kitchenettes, furnished balconies, and high-end bedding with colorful accents. Recently finished in early 2015 are three luxury villas, sumptuously decorated, each with a private pool and four bedrooms. Swimmers in the infinity pool feel that they can touch the surf, hundreds of feet below. You can also bathe in the small cove, dramatically lighted by night. The pier, chaises, and beach restaurant all help draw sophisticated yachties and French expat residents, who make it wildly popular on weekends. All that plus a deluxe eco-spa with a sauna and fitness room makes this one of the island's in places.
