171 CS D hints of chili and kaffr lime; my husband's lamb chops arrived with a sweet-and-spicy harissa sauce. For dessert, there was "praline rose des montagnes"— puff pastries favored with raspberry and lychee. Sommelier Jo Anne Clarke, we concluded, is a godsend for anyone intimidated by a wine list. Her pairings, all French, were spot on. The coup de grâce was an Alsatian dessert wine redolent of lychee and roses. Cheval Blanc has the only Guerlain spa in the Caribbean. As connoisseurs of fragrance know, the house of Guerlain, since 1828, has been a leader in the world of fne perfume. Though familiar with their iconic fragrances (Shalimar, Sam- sara, Vol de Nuit), I had never experienced their skin care line before now. My Imperiale Relaxing Massage took place in a quiet, candle-lit room paneled with white leather. Among the blissful moments: a massage that advanced and retreated, like waves, over my body; a soothing wrap in warm towels— frst wet, then dry; and a cool, super-luscious face mask, gently slathered on. At the end, I was offered a bowl of coconut ice cream to aid "re-entry." Absolu- ment divin. Cheval Blanc uniquely com- bines elegance and informality with an unsurpassed attention to details. For couples wanting to celebrate a special occasion or to vacation in an ultra-exclusive setting, it's a perfect choice. Families with children also feel at home. Whatever your circum- stances, the hospitality offered by the Maison's youthful and gracious French staff will keep you coming back for more.
