A freshly renovated high-end retreat, offering activities and entertainment, minibar access and a welcome drink

Sonesta Ocean Point Resort stands apart from the crowd in the best way possible – it’s been called the most unique hotel on St. Maarten. Perched above the sea on the westernmost point of the island, in sought-after and newly reconstructed Maho Village, this all-inclusive retreat is a serious architectural stunner (and a World Travel Award winner). But it will take your breath away in more ways than one. Its stellar position affords nightly opportunities to take in postcard-perfect sunsets, while every suite is spacious retreat with a private balcony, gorgeous views and custom designer furnishings.

And if you want to take the relaxing elsewhere? No problem. The long list of perks includes an all-access pass to a sister resort, reopening in February 2019, and sprawling casino, reopening in fall 2018. Among these properties are nearly a dozen restaurants and bars, three pools, tennis courts, golf, casinos, a spa and more. In the daytime, you’ll be invited to play billiards and board games; and in the evening, there are theme parties to attend. But don’t let your schedule fill up completely, or you’ll miss the chance to watch the planes famously descend directly over sunny Maho Beach.

Good to know

This property is adults-only, and guests must be over the age of 18 to stay here.

The resort – which was originally built in 2015 – will be reopening in November 2018 following a complete restoration post-Hurricane Irma. The lobby will be completely redesigned, while the rooftop terrace will add a new tapas restaurant. Its sister resort and Casino Royale are both also undergoing a revamp; the casino will reopen in fall 2018, while Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, Casino & Spa is scheduled to reopen February 1, 2019.
