SONESTA RESORTS ST. MAARTEN REOPENING UPDATE

Returning “Stronger & Brand New” Following Extensive Renovations Post Hurricane Irma.

Sonesta Ocean Point Resort is now open. The following all-inclusive gastronomy options are available to guests including Azul Restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner; the new Casa Blue Tapas Restaurant and Lounge open for lunch and dinner; The Point Restaurant open for dinner, and the new, Candlelit Island Grill open for dinner only. These venues along with the four bars, pool service and 24-hour room service will round out the food and beverage offerings. Spa services for Sonesta Ocean Point guests are available at a dedicated Spa Suite and at Serenity Point, a private outdoor treatment gazebo, overlooking Maho Bay.

Every effort is being made to minimize the appearance of the construction at Sonesta Maho Resort, which is entirely closed off during the process with the exterior facade almost completed. Some construction is however visible when entering and leaving the resort complex. 

As a reminder, the "Stay at One, Play at Two" program for Sonesta Ocean Point guests to access Sonesta Maho Beach Resort will not be available until the resort reopens on February 27, 2019.

Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, Casino & Spa is being updated with a new contemporary design reflecting a clean, airy aesthetic throughout the entire resort including public spaces, restaurants and guest rooms, but is keeping its signature family-friendly charms offering an array of restaurants and bars, Kids Club and Teen Zone and fun daily activities. Guest rooms have a thoughtful new, modern layout creating more comfort and better usage of the interior space including larger bathrooms allowing in natural light. New furniture includes ultra comfortable bedding and European standard mattresses, with wood-based bed frames made from sustainably harvested forests, under the Forest Certification Encouragement Program. In addition, a new category room debuts, The Loft Suites, featuring ocean views, balconies, an elevated bedroom with a king bed and a living room located beneath with sitting area and a pull out sofa, perfect for couples or families.

Sonesta Ocean Point Resort’s much-loved modern Caribbean design in the guest rooms and public spaces remains the same, while the lobby is being entirely redesigned with an updated contemporary style. Casa Blue is a Caribbean-fusion tapas restaurant and bar featuring flavored mojitos and sangria, which launched this season on the rooftop terrace above Azul Restaurant.

Casino Royale will continue to offer over 21,000 square-feet of gaming and entertainment with the biggest theater in the region, and will debut two new alfresco restaurants and a new outdoor bar and lounge overlooking the main street of Maho Village.
