ARTISTIC ELEGANCE AND CARIBBEAN CHARMS - SONESTA OCEAN POINT RESORT IN ST. MAARTEN
 
(2023 - Winter Issue)

Writer: ILONA KAUREMSZKY



On the westernmost point of St. Maarten, there’s a masterpiece of art and design where the setting sun casts a golden glow on the James Bond-looking facade.

It’s the spectacular adults-only, all-inclusive gem known as the Sonesta Ocean Point Resort.

From the moment you arrive at this luxurious Caribbean haven overlooking Maho Bay, you are surrounded by an atmosphere that’s both opulent and inviting, offering an unforgettable experience where art and design merge seamlessly with the tropical beauty of the island.

The most Instagrammable standouts are undoubtedly the main pool and restaurant.

POOL DIVINE

Situated at the heart of the premier 130-suite “resort within a resort” property are the Edge infinity pool and Azul Restaurant. With its own private beach perched on a cliff, the infinity pool seems to slosh directly into the ocean, creating an illusion of endless waters. World-renowned pool designer Joan Roca uses the natural elements—earth, water, and sky for inspiration. With every plunge, you can gaze upon the breathtaking view of the Caribbean, making it feel as if you’re swimming in the very heart of paradise.

The stunning pool is adorned with sophisticated sun beds and cabanas, good for whiling away the afternoon. Roca’s meticulous attention to detail is evident in each element, from the elegant wooden accents to the lush tropical landscaping. The colour palette meshes earthy tones and vibrant blues, mirroring the local Caribbean surroundings. Every poolside moment feels like a piece of living art, perfectly curated for the ultimate relaxation and indulgence.

DINE DIVINE

Continue exploring the creative concepts at the resort’s restaurants, of which there are three exclusive à la carte restaurants, each with breathtaking views. As you dine at Mediterranean-inspired Azul, perched at the edge of a cliff, next to the Edge Pool overlooking Maho Bay, Azul’s impressive open-concept design allows you to experience the sweeping views while indulging in gourmet cuisine. You are ensconced in design elements at this signature oceanview restaurant with the use of natural materials, such as wood and stone, which infuse a sense of warmth and authenticity into the space.

NIGHT FALLS DIVINE

Now as the stars begin to twinkle in the Caribbean night sky, the pool and restaurant scene at Sonesta Ocean Point Resort takes on a new kind of charm. The play of light and shadow, the gentle rustle of palm fronds, and the melody of the waves create a mood that is nothing short of enchanting.

For those seeking an adults-only, all-inclusive Caribbean getaway that combines luxury, artistry, and relaxation, Sonesta Ocean Point Resort in St. Maarten is an experience that lingers in the soul long after the vacation has ended.
