In the 2006 survey, Zagat’s said of La Samanna, “Sumptuous” dining in a “beautiful restaurant overlooking the water” is but one attraction at this “posh”, “exclusive” “boutique” resort “nestled between verdant hills”; there’s also a “great pool overlooking” a “perfect Beach”, “gorgeous” quarters, “outstanding service” and an old-school “exclusivity” that’s not gone unnoticed by celebrities over the years.
