After searching top rated resorts wolrdwide we selected La Samanna for our long awaited honeymoon. The whole affair is a study in understatement. The service was exemplary, from their Orient Hotel reservationist who helped us plan it, to the entire hotel staff and especially Nathalie Schoenher, a F & B manager who has world class charm and a talent for extraordinary service. We were so taken with the magic of the place we purchased a pre-construction condo close by at Cupecoy Yacht Club, owned by same OEH group that runs La Samanna. We had to ask her to introduce us to the property, untra soft sell.
The honeymoon package covered all the bases, with the La Samanna II boat excursion being a key winner. Our accomodations in the Baie Rouge suite were near- perfect, like the top of a wedding cake overlooking the pool and sea, but super quiet!
Dining is over the top but a must to try at least once. The island requires that you turn off the expected and listen to the quiet magic of the island. Do not miss massage by Martine and her staff in SPA. Best in my life!
