Boating and sailing enthusiasts the world over flock to St. Maarten each March for the annual Heineken Regatta, an international sailing event with more than 200 entries!
The official slogan for the event is “serious fun” and we certainly mean it. Located at the center of the excitement, Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, guests can enjoy great food, drinks, performances and the chance to cheer on the participants and the boats pass right by the resort’s beach. Guests at our sister property, Sonesta Great Bay Resort can also watch the boats pass through Philipsburg.
The event is also known for its lively entertainment. Guests can get up-close and personal with international recording artists who perform directly on Kim Sha Beach. Past musical performances include the Black Eyed Peas, Shaygg, the Wailers and Wyclef Jean.
The Sonesta Maho Beach Resort & Casino, with its all-inclusive meals, drinks, kid's club and scheduled activities program, is a "destination within a destination,” offering exciting nightlife, a variety of accommodations and first-rate amenities for singles, couples, and families.
The property is conveniently located on the island's southwest shore just minutes from the airport, and features a large pool area with swim-up pool bar, cascading waterfalls, a second quiet pool area and oceanfront wedding gazebo.
Five restaurants and five bars, fitness center, four tennis courts, nightclub, and more than 24,000 square feet of meeting space increase the amenities options at the resort. Other amenities, such as The Maho Serenity Spa, Casino Royale, and tours and excursions are available for an additional fee.
