Why This Is the Best Luxury Resort in St Maarten

By: Alexander Britell - May 1, 2021

In the age of social distancing, we’re not just looking for a room. 

We’re looking for a place to live, a retreat, an oasis. 

And we’re looking for a getaway that, for a week, becomes our dream home, our Caribbean fantasy, with the comforts of home but the design and amenities of a hotel. 

In other words, we’re looking for the perfect residential resort. 

And that’s precisely what you find at what has long been the leading luxury resort in St Maarten: Coral Beach Club. 

The stunning Dawn Beach-area property is a mix of 14 beachfront or beach view villas, with three and four-bedrooms, each with their own private pools and sunken gazebo. And then there are the two-bedroom, two story marina-view townhouses facing Oyster Pond, or the 1,600-square-foot penthouse.

All villas come with gourmet kitchens and high-level amenities, with easy access to pools, the beach, and the marina – perfect for family celebrations or a romantic getaway. 

Designed by renowned architect Jean-Pierre Heim, they offer a modern yet relaxed approach to the Caribbean lifestyle. 

Because St Maarten is an island that’s meant to be lived, not just experienced – it’s a place where you want to venture out to the eateries and the markets, to come back to your villa and grill some fresh-caught fish, to savor a rum cocktail before sunset on your terrace.

CBC is the best of both worlds; you’re so close to the French border that you can enjoy the gastronomic delights of both the French and Dutch sides within easy reach. 

And if you’d like to stay closer, there’s options steps from your villa, including the Infinity Restaurant, the new Veranda Bistro and Big Fish, the South Beach-meets-the-Caribbean signature eatery with an emphasis on locally-sourced seafood. 

And in a few days, you’ve cultivated the perfect routine: days spent lounging on your patio or the sand, evenings on gastronomic journeys. 

You’re right at home in St Maarten.
