Cap Est Lagoon Resort & Spa
At this 50-suite escape on Martinique's verdant eastern coast, a Guerlain spa and Creole fusion cuisine add Gallic spice to a modern plantation-style hotel decorated with vibrant madras fabrics. Take your cue from the French clientele and touch up your tan Euro-style (read: topless). After sunset, dance to steel drums in the lounge.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
