“Blue Sand” Wonderland:Sable Bleu is Boutique Bliss in Martinique

A French-Caribbean island beloved for its UNESCO-recognized ecology, Martinique has emerged as a tourism darling in a highly competitive region for its winning mix of cuisine, culture, and natural beauty.

Of course, the island has no shortage of man-made beauty to match its environs. From centuries-old European churches to lovely modern boutique properties, Martinique’s accommodations meet even the most stringent definitions of exceptional. 

In the coastal region of Le Marin – an increasingly popular part of Martinique’s tourism corridor – one of the destination’s newer additions is raising that standard even higher. The first four-star property in the area (and located only steps from the water), the aptly named Sable Bleu is a former doctor’s residence that is clinical in its pursuit of comfort and character. 

16 refined rooms offer either garden view or views of the sea, with convenient proximity to Le Marin’s bustling marina. Natural sunlight is plentiful, with artistic touches and decor that evoke and venerate the abundant lush greenery around the island. Calm and tranquillity are the preeminent vibes at this boutique gem: whether lounging by the infinity pool or indulging at the Spa, Sable Bleu makes getting lost in the peace of Martinique blissfully easy.

That’s not to say the property doesn’t have an adventurous side. Chef Vladimir François Maikoouva curates an exclusive short-circuit menu, favouring local products for breezy lunches and dinners on the rooftop eatery. Being an oceanfront property, Sable Bleu serves as an excellent gateway for sailing and yachting excursions – as well as day-trip forays into the nearby town, botanical park, and mangroves.  Four-star splendour is now available in the heart of Martinique’s Marin harbour.
