Whale watching, pelican safaris, sunset hunting, Creole cuisine sampling – these are just some of the exciting things you can do while visiting Guadeloupe. Right where the northeastern Caribbean meets the western Atlantic, the many unique islands and islets of this archipelago welcome visitors with spellbinding landscapes and warm hospitality. If this slice of paradise is your next destination, check these stunning spa hotels in Guadeloupe – bookable on Culture Trip.
Plunge into lavish luxury and total tranquillity in la Toubana Hôtel and Spa, one of the best hotels in Guadeloupe. Here, impeccably appointed bungalows with stunning vistas beckon you to indulge in an unforgettable escape. Easily one of the best spas in Guadeloupe, the venue is an ideal setting for a romantic getaway. Plush villas and private spaces – often decorated with luxurious dark furniture – open onto private terraces with infinity pools and endless ocean views. La Toubana Spa promises to take care of your body and soul with four treatment rooms, a fitness room and a beautiful seating area.
Right where Grande-Terre meets Basse-Terre, la Créole is the quintessential spot for getting the best of two islands. Located in a dreamy seaside park in Pointe de la Verdure – not far from the village of Gosier – this property is ideally placed for you to explore Guadeloupe. With its own balneotherapy room, the 250sqm (2,700sqft) spa area offers water treatments and wellness days. All suites and rooms are ready for your pleasure, as soothing whites, touches of turquoise and natural materials combine to provide a chic and cosy ambience.
Near the southernmost tip of Pointe des Châteaux peninsula – minutes from Marina Saint-François – be enchanted by the comforting environment of the five laid-back suites and villas of Majesty Palm. The beautiful bungalows feature rustic furnishing, bright spaces and unspoilt vistas surrounded by verdant tropical gardens. Benefit from replenishing treatments in the on-site spa, discover the gorgeous swimming pool, or head to the terrace on which you can exercise or sunbathe – or simply disconnect from the rest of the universe. All accommodations feature their own spa with a hot tub, either in a private terrace or garden.
Gwada Natura Ecolodges & Spa is set on the heights of la Source de Sofaïa – the well-known sulphur baths in the town of Sainte-Rose – at the gates of Deshaies. Amid a tropical forest, the venue is within easy distance of the stunning beaches of the leeward coast. The ecolodges are made with teak wood and include a magnificent rustic bedroom, a large walk-in shower and a natural stone sink – while for cooking, there’s a cosy kitchen on the terrace and a barbecue. The health club features an outdoor hot tub, heated pool and massage treatments.
Halfway between the town centres of Sainte-Anne and Sainte-François – not far from the beautiful surfing spot of le Helleux and the emerald pools of Bois Jolan beach – le Relais du Moulin is a perfect starting point from which to discover Guadeloupe. Relais du Moulin Spa contains two wellness rooms for relaxation and serenity, with a wide menu of beauty and massage treatments. After your pampering break, stop by the pool bar for a fruity cocktail, or take a restorative nap in your suite or rustic bungalow.
Aromatic massage, wellness for couples and reflexology are a few of the tailor-made gifts you can treat yourself to at the Iguane House Villas & Micro Spa. This blissful retreat is just outside the centre of Sainte-Anne and a stone’s throw from Saint-Félix beach – a dreamland for kitesurfing. The stunning la Caravelle beach is also close by. With minimalistic design atop a cliff on Grande Terre, the venue boasts soaring panoramas over Marie-Galante island. Designed for two or four guests, the villas are nestled in private gardens and come with your own swimming pool.
