St Maarten’s largest resort is slated to reopen next month, Caribbean Journal has learned.
The all-inclusive Sonesta Maho Beach Resort is reopening its doors on Oct. 29, according to Sonesta.
The 10-acre, 420-room resort is the largest in St Maarten.
It will be reopening with a major new look first inaugurated last year after a dramatic reconstruction in the wake of Hurricane Irma.
The company’s other St Maarten resort, the 130-suite Sonesta Ocean Point, is already open and welcoming guests.
St Maarten reopened for tourism earlier this summer, and is currently requiring incoming travelers to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test result within five days prior to arrival to the island.
Accordingly, Sonesta, the leading resort brand in Dutch St Maarten, has announced a program that offsets the costs of mandatory testing, with a resort credit of up to $120 per person for visitors to the property.
“We know that today more than ever before, there are many things to think about when making the choice to travel, and while safety and security and the health of your family is paramount, cost is also high on that list,” said Sonesta Resorts Sint Maarten’s new Director of Sales & Marketing Michele Olivier. “By alleviating the testing cost, we want our guests to feel that we’ve got their back from the beginning.
The credit can be used for extras like spa treatments, premium bottles of wine and other property amenities.
“We love travel, and for those who have the means to get on a plane and come visit us, we want them to be able to use that money spent on testing during their vacation,” Olivier said. “They have earned it.”
