The Top All-Inclusive In St Maarten Is Open Again

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - August 12, 2020

St Maarten’s leading all-inclusive resort is open again, Caribbean Journal has learned. 

The adults-only Sonesta Ocean Point Resort, the adults-only resort adjacent to the Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, is open and accepting guests following St Maarten’s tourism reopening. (The Sonesta Maho Beach Resort remains closed, however). 

St Maarten continued its multi-phased reopening earlier this month, officially welcoming back travelers from the United States (see St Maarten’s health and safety protocols for visitors here).

The Sonesta Ocean Point has reopened with a host of new health and safety measures called PureCare. 

So what’s changed at the property?

The resort’s signature Azul restaurant and The Point are both open; Casa Blue will be open at a later date following an upgrade project, Sonesta said in a statement.

Four bars are open, including One Zero Pool Bar, Martin’s Bar, Azul Bar, Sunset Lounge + Bar, along with poolside service. 

The Serenity Spa has shifted its operations outdoors, meaning guests can get treatments in an oceanfront gazebo. 

That’s along with new, 24-hour contactless room service, along with a new coffee and pastry bar called Carmen’s Cafe. 

Butler service will be available on request, but Sonesta has “strict, limited room entry guidelines” that also mean nightly turndown service has been paused for now. 

As for the aforementioned Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, its closure has been extended through at least Oct. 29.
