And if we were telling you

A little story

71 years of an extraordinary adventure, made of artists and crazy parties

This hotel establishment which has the Diamond Rock as a backdrop opened its doors in June 1945. The start of its incredible history meant that it would become the oldest hotel establishment to have emerged in Martinique.

Initially, the Diamant Les Bains was created with 10 rooms. The hotel operated in this way until 1980 when 20 more rooms were added. Seven rooms were located on the first floor of the main building. Then, 23 bungalows were divided into two categories: the “Gardens” located along the property, at the level of the swimming pool. And, a few steps lower, the “Beach” bungalows which were erected as close as possible to the beach.

These accommodations have welcomed personalities from the world of literature, in particular :

  • Aimé CESAIRE, poet and politician from Martinique, author of “Cahier d’un retour au Pays Natal”.
  • Milan KUNDERA, Czech writer, author of “The unbearable lightness of being”.
  • Patrick CHAMOISEAU, Martinique writer, Goncourt Prize for his novel “Texaco”.
  • Edouard GLISSANT, Martiniquais writer, poet and philosopher author of “Le Discours Antillais”.

At this time, we are in the old-style seaside resort, in the colors of the Antilles

The establishment offers on a sheltered terrace, entirely open to the exterior, a restaurant “l’Assiette Créole”, which occupies a central place at the Diamant Les Bains.

The establishment’s success is built around this one, we come from all over Martinique, especially on Tuesdays for lobster evenings. 200 guests are welcomed each evening. Thursdays are a blast with the garden parties. Nearly 2,200 people flock to dance to the music of PlayBoy, Perfecta, Simon Jurad and Operation 78…

After a few years of closure, in 2019, the Diamant les bains is reborn with a new team, which aims to perpetuate this tradition.

71 years later Le Diamant Les Bains invites you to come and share new adventures !
