Fodor's Expert Review Cap Est Lagoon Resort & Spa

Quartier Cap Est, Le François, n/a Martinique, 97240, Martinique Fodor's Choice

At Martinique's most exclusive resort, the caring staff strives to make sure that guests, housed in a series of contemporary villas decorated with Southeast Asian influences and (mostly) with views of the crystalline lagoon and private plunge pools, leave satisfied. All suites have been refreshed, and the best news is that prices have dropped substantially. The least expensive garden rooms have water views from their second-floor bedrooms but no private plunge pools. All suites have CD/DVD players and plasma TVs. All—even the junior suites—are spacious, well designed, and serenely quiet. In-room Wi-Fi is both free and consistent. Discriminating guests (as well as nonguests) can indulge themselves at the elegant spa here. Sports activities include kayaking, paddleboarding, kite- and windsurfing, yoga, small catamarans, and (the most fun) exploring the neighboring islets on the resort's yacht. In season, there is light entertainment, like jazz trios. Suites 26 through 30 have incredible views of water and mountains.
