Overlooking the ocean this beachfront luxury resort on the northern coast of Saint-Barthélemy is 4 km from the island's capital, Gustavia.

This elegant collection of rooms, bungalows, suites and villas are individually designed all using a stylish white palette. Each has a unique, chic character, and all have beach access. Most have ocean-view terraces and some have private infinity pools or hot tubs. Some suites add full kitchens.

There's a fine dining al fresco restaurant, a fashionable poolside bar and a fitness centre. The upscale spa has a hammam, relaxation pavilion and treatment rooms.

The best time to visit November through June
