The Residence is on one of the island's longest beaches at Belle Mare, surrounded by palm trees and tropical gardens. Some of its 163 rooms and suites are just a few steps away from the kilometre-long white sands, and have marble bathrooms and walk-in closets.
The luxuriously-appointed garden or ocean view rooms have either king-size or twin beds, air-conditioning, en suite bathrooms and spacious balconies or terraces, while suites are divided into four categories: Garden View Junior, Senior Suite, Colonial Ocean Front, or Ocean View Suites. A private butler service is available with every room category.
The Plantation Restaurant is beside the water and serves imaginative Creole and international cuisine. There are two further restaurants to choose from, a beauty emporium, a health sanctuary offering Zen treatments, a kids' club open until 10pm, babysitting services, and facilities geared towards teenagers.
Activities include fishing, diving, horse riding, and golf.
