This hotel has it all, and you may find yourself not even needing to leave once you’ve put down your bags. Relax in the swimming pool, watch your children enjoy the playground, or get into some sports on the on-site courts. The staff offers excursion planning and, if you happen to be a sailor, a marina and docking.
Not only are they comfortable and welcoming, but the rooms are unique. They’re decorated with Haitian arts and crafts and built in the style of traditional colonial architecture. Many of them overlook the gardens and lakes, and all have air conditioning and hot water heated by solar panels.
The Dining Experience
The on-site restaurant offers three locations around the resort for dining. Enjoy your meal while overlooking either The Voumtak, Le Boucanier and the L’Espadon. Aside from the top-notch meals offered throughout the day, try to make it to Sunday brunch, when the maestro is there to play classical and Caribbean tunes.
A stunning touch to the property is the 20 acres of gardens that complement 15 acres of beachfront property. In collaboration with the Ogier-Fombrun Museum, there is a variety of artistically manicured flora including native Caribbean species like coconut, palm, date and an assortment of tropical flowers.
