There are so many reasons to “Meet Martinique.” With the excellent exchange rate and increased flights to Fort de France from the U.S., the Island of Flowers is now more affordable and accessible than ever! Of course it’s now easier to get to Martinique, but where should you stay once you’ve landed in paradise? Here are a few of the chicest hotels and villas in the French Caribbean!
Cool your feet in the turquoise waters of one of the most picturesque bays in Martinique at Villa Alice Bay. Whether you are relaxing on a private jetty or near the pool, you will be privy to an impeccable ocean view. If you’d prefer to stay on the east coast of the island, head to Point Cerisier in Le Francois. Here, you’ll find Le Domaine des Fonds Blancs villa nestled in the lagoon along the most exclusive and famous area of the island.
If hotels are more your speed, Martinique offers a variety of idyllic accommodations. Discover La Pagerie hotel, a modern fully renovated upscale property just a few steps from the isolated beach, and only 20 minutes from downtown Fort de France by ferry. Big on boutique hotels?
