Welcome to Hotel L'Esplanade

This award-winning boutique hotel is perched on the hill above the charming village of Grand Case on the French side of St. Martin, a five-minute walk from Grand Case Bay and the town's world-famous gourmet restaurants, fondly known as "Restaurant Row".

Sweeping, panoramic ocean views, gorgeous Mediterranean architecture, lush gardens and impeccable attention to detail paired with a uniquely un-touristy Caribbean experience draws repeat visitors from all over the world.

Hotel L'Esplanade has been owned and operated by the Petrelluzzi family since it was built in 1992. The concept was simple, and hasn't changed: a beautiful hotel built in the perfect location. The hotel is designed to provide absolute relaxation, an authentic Caribbean experience and genuine hospitality.
Kristin and Marc Petrelluzzi arrived to visit Marc's parents almost twenty years ago and never left. Their vacation turned into the beginning of a new life on the island. Under their care, L'Esplanade has thrived, reflecting their passion, vision and perfectionism.
Today, L'Esplanade is as beautiful as ever: 24 immaculately-maintained rooms tucked away in a hillside oasis. Kristin and Marc are still there every day sharing their genuine warmth and looking for new ways to make paradise just a little bit better, like the newly-opened Ti Spa. Every week, long-time guests arrive and settle back into their home away from home. Like the sunset overlooking Grand Case Bay, some things never get old.
Set into the hillside with unparalleled views of Grand Case Bay, every room in the L'Esplanade collection features glowing hand-crafted Brazilian woodwork, Balinese furniture, and rich French fabrics that embody effortless tropical luxe. Premium imported linens and king-size Celestial Beds make the nights as sumptuously rejuvenating as the days.
Each of the 24 spacious, immaculately maintained accommodations offers a private terrace overlooking the aquamarine sea, where evenings begin with a brilliant sunset and melt into a breathtaking starscape.
