St Maarten’s Oyster Bay Beach Resort Is Back and Better than Ever

By: Alexander Britell - February 27, 2021

They call it the “Pearl of the Caribbean,” this tiny beach town on the eastern edge of St Maarten. 

This is Oyster Pond, a pearl-shaped lagoon framed by green hills, a place long home to one of the island’s signature places to stay: the Oyster Bay Beach Resort. 

Set out on the point, the Oyster Bay Beach Resort has for years been one of the most popular, beloved resorts in St Maarten: a hub of energy, a meeting place, a Mecca for the island’s travel aficionados. 

And now the resort is back, amid St Maarten’s continued tourism reopening. 

It’s another major launch for the hotel, which completed a dramatic transformation project that included a new look for the resort. 

That’s along with a number of other upgrades, from a new poolscape to a new beachfront eatery on the way called Veranda Market and Bistro. 

There’s a bright, crisp new aesthetic to the resort, and a design that further accentuates the spectacular, panoramic views you enjoy from just about anywhere on the property. 

The blue-hued rooms are spacious and comfortable, particularly the suites, all of which come with kitchens and balconies. 

And then there’s the centerpiece: the Mainsail Penthouse, a collection of penthouse units with rooftop living spaces that come with their own private pools. 

The resort has also reopened with a host of industry-leading safety measures that have already earned a SafeSeal recognition. 

Of course, what hasn’t changed is the resort’s primary focus: a well-maintained title as the “friendliest resort on the friendly island,” something the property takes very seriously. 

It’s all part of what makes this resort one of the island’s gems. 

St Maarten has been open for tourism since last summer, with newly updated protocols you can find here.
