Martinique Hotels

Le Domaine Saint Aubin


  • Daydream yourself into a more gracious era
  • Hip owners make scintillating company
  • Wheelchair-accessible rooms (and the pool has a chair-lift)


  • Somewhat remote location requires a car
  • Original rooms have character but are not stylin'
  • Breakfast is an additional €14
  • No lunch, bar or snacks, so BYO

Fodor's Review

This former estate perched on a verdant hilltop has breathtaking views overlooking the Atlantic. An interesting Parisian couple returned to the husband's homeland and lovingly restored the family's 19th-century creole plantation house, starting with six simple guest rooms opening onto a wraparound veranda. They then expanded to 30 rooms while maintaining the colonial ambience. Nineteen rooms are housed in recently constructed or completely renovated, freestanding cottages on a knoll overlooking the Louisiana-style great house. The newer rooms have some antiques and more style. Seven rooms (five doubles and two bi-level "quadruples") have been carved out of the original stables, and three four-room lodges, built in the same Louisiana-style architecture, house a fitness room and a conference room. Those last built are the best yet—six huge, two-bedroom flats, with four-poster beds and fashionable lighting. They are rented seasonally, with minimum night stays. There's free Wi-Fi, as well

as a media room with a wide-screen plasma TV—there are no in-room TVs (or phones). Within the manor house, the restaurant is elegantly furnished with mahogany period antiques, vintage photos, and a chandelier. It offers exceptional, fixed-price dinners (€40); nonguests are welcome with a reservation. Expect mains such as sea bass on spinach puree, fresh vegetables from the garden, and perhaps a coconut-and-guava tartin.

Adjacent is the newly redone and similarly decorated imusic room.
