As Marie Antoinette once infamously said, "Let them Escape!" Heed the queen's words when you take your own revolutionary retreat to the island of St. Martin with this Escape to the Marquis Boutique Hotel and Spa.

Bring your cherie for a three- ($394), four- ($525), or five-night ($565) stay for two in a Deluxe Room from October 5 to December 22, 2012. If you prefer to travel later, opt for a three- ($774), four- ($1,032), or five-night ($1,290) stay for two in a Deluxe Room from January 8 to February 28, 2013.

Built on the hill of pristine Marcel Cove by an honest-to-goodness French Marquis (Gerard de Vion), this exclusive boutique hotel is the crown jewel of the island. Your royal chamber—one of only 17 rooms on the property—is individually decorated with warm fabrics and paintings by Caribbean artist Francis Eck.

You'll find a fresh fruit basket and bottle of French wine upon arrival, as well as a well-stocked minibar and wireless Internet.

In the morning, pay homage to the Sun King with a dip in the pool or a luxurious lay-about on Anse Marcel beach. Featuring gourmet coffee, French pastries, and Caribbean fruits, your included daily continetal breakfast becomes a courtly affair when served poolside or on your private terrace overlooking the ocean.

Afterward, work off the buttery croissants with a game of squash or tennis on the Marquis' lush grounds before a massage in the Zen area.

With duty-free shopping at many luxury stores, St. Martin has earned its reputation as a shoppers' paradise. Declare your own tax holiday by spending an afternoon browsing for clothing, jewelry, perfumes, and electronics.

And if you fancy yourselves the Duke and Duchess of Dinnertime, make a reservation for dinner in Grand Case, known as the "Gastronomic Capital of the Caribbean" and only ten minutes from the hotel.

This week's egalitarian Escape is the best that money can buy.

  • "Tasteful contemporary decor in the spacious rooms—all with names of nearby islands—means a splash of bright colors, marble bathrooms with bathtubs, and a private terrace with a hammock; each room even has an espresso machine."
