Tropical chic. Spanning 300 acres, the resort is a mix of fulsome greenery and gardens, Balinese-style pavilions and African conical thatch roofs. The villas blend in with their natural surroundings, with pale yellow stucco walls, mahogany louvered shades, dark hardwoods and private outdoor spaces.
Bed & Bath
The 267 suites and villas overlook Port-Launay’s turquoise waters and the verdant hills of Marine National Park. Each has its own living and dining area and an outdoor deck with a private pool, some which dangle above Port-Launay’s emerald bay. Spa Villas are equipped with a private hammam and treatment area for two, while Beach Villas feature spacious bathrooms with his-and-hers sinks, walk-in showers and separate tubs.
Mangrove-fringed pathways lead to the five oceanfront restaurants, which offer everything from wood oven pizzas and grilled seafood to Creole specialties and Mediterranean cast iron dishes. Fly above the native takamaka trees on one of the resort’s eight zip lines from the North Beach to the poolside deck at Cyann for fresh sushi and such classic French-Asian dishes as the salmon with fennel cream. Cruise the nature trail on one of the free bikes, stopping for a treatment at the huge Shiseido spa, a round on the tennis courts, a night diving course at the PADI-certified dive center or a glass of aged rum at one of the four oceanfront bars.
