Smell the salty sea air as you open your eyes in the morning, then head to the balcony to gaze out at gorgeous panoramic views of a white sandy beach, lapped by turquoise waters and cradled by a coral reef: it is a simple premise, but effective, and it awaits you at La Plantation. Just five minutes' walk from Orient Bay, the hotel is surrounded by five hectares of tropical gardens, full of palm trees, banana trees, bougainvilliers, hibiscus and allamanda.
The 53 rooms and suites are simple yet vibrant, and occupy 17 single-storey, shingle-roofed villas. Each is home to one suite and two studio apartments that can either be rented separately or together, making this an ideal place for holidays with family or friends. The villas' huge terraces are caressed by the island's trade winds, and enjoy panoramic views over the bay and the marine reserve's neighbouring islets.
After breakfast, either poolside or surrounded by lush green gardens under the pergola, it is time to decide how to spend your day. There is no shortage of options: be it relaxing, enjoying a walk on the beach, or exploring Tintamarre island, a sanctuary for local wildlife and home to iguanas, sea turtles and tortoises, the choice is yours!
