Sonesta Resorts Sint Maarten Completes Final Stages of Re-Opening and is Now Fully Operational with Brand New Facilities and Guest Experience Offerings
SINT MAARTEN (October 22, 2019) – Sonesta Resorts Sint Maarten is proud to announce that it’s now fully operational having completed the final stages of rebuilding post Hurricane Irma. The all-inclusive, adults-only Sonesta Ocean Point Resort and family-focused Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, Casino & Spa are back better than ever with new accommodations, facilities and restaurants and a new executive team overseeing every aspect of the guest experience including new food and beverage, entertainment and fitness programs.
Mr. Jamie Lee was recently appointed Vice President of Operations and General Manager and is spearheading this next era of Sonesta Resorts Sint Maarten. The company understands that the culinary experience is paramount, and has made huge strides to meet the high standards of today’s modern traveler. With the introduction of a new executive food and beverage team, a roll out of new culinary offerings is in place, elevating the all-inclusive dining experience with a focus on quality, freshness, variety and authentic international and local flavors that cater to every guests’ preference.
Guests are enjoying Sonesta Maho Beach Resort’s new look reflecting a contemporary design while keeping its signature family-friendly charms. The resort’s Sky Tower received a complete renovation that instated a comprehensive new architectural and interior redesign. Most importantly, TCK and LVKE building technology was installed with storm resistant building envelope that can withstand sustained winds in excess of 200mph winds (Irma had sustained winds of 165mph) and severe earthquakes. TCK and LVKE is a China-based, green technology consortium and its revolutionary building panels also significantly enhance thermal insulation and energy efficiency, reducing the carbon footprint of the resort and improve fire resistance making the building safer. Groupe Nox Engineering and Studio Trebbi Engineering completely re-designed the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems of the resort. The new Sky Tower is compliant with all the latest safety and environmental standards.
Sonesta Maho Beach Resort continues to offer an array of restaurants and bars including new and past favorites like the al fresco Palms Grill with Lava Rock dining; buffet offerings at Ocean Terrace; Napoli Pizzeria + Paninoteca; à la carte dining at The Point; pub grub at the Ascot Pub & Sports Bar; Asian specialties at Jing’s Kitchen and the return of Maho Café. The popular Beach House Kids Club and Aqua Park designed for children ages 3-12, features a new cast of Beach House Crew members and all-day activities. The new Teen Zone is a state-of-the-art, media-equipped crash pad for young adults packed with the latest entertainment and video games, including DJ decks, Karaoke, GoPro sessions and more. The Oasis Pool now has cool waterslides and the popular Oasis Swim Up Bar is still the lively center for resort activities. Newly appointed guestrooms showcase a thoughtful contemporary design and a new category, The Loft Suites, features ocean views, an elevated bedroom with a king bed and a sitting area located beneath and a pull-out sofa, each with own full bathroom, perfect for couples or families.
A new lobby façade debuted at Sonesta Ocean Point Resort along with Casa Blue Tapas Restaurant & Bar located on top of Azul Restaurant offering gorgeous 360-degree views of the sea, serving Caribbean fusion tapas and a full-service bar including flavored mojitos, sangrias and wines. The new Candlelit Island Grill offers an intimate al fresco dining experience under the stars with OFYR-grilled specialties accompanied by a top selection of wine. Sunset Lounge + Bar is still serving up cocktails and views, along with Martin’s Bar in the lobby, Azul Bar and pool service, and of course, the signature Azul Restaurant serving elevated Mediterranean cuisine.
