We were tooling around the Caribbean recently and came up with this gem. Sonesta St. Maarten All-Inclusive Resorts is upping its game by adding a luxury, five-star, all-inclusive hotel next door to Sonesta Maho Beach Resort and just minutes from the airport. The adults-only hotel is expected to have a soft opening in October. The company already operates the Sonesta Great Bay Resort and Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, both four-star all-inclusive properties.

The new resort will have approximately 130 rooms and suites. On the first floor, there will be 25 swim-out Junior Suites, while Sunset Suites located on the second, third and fourth floors will have terraces with plunge pools. The top rooms, however, will be the Luxury Rooftop Suites. We hear there will be about 15-20 of these.

There will be two dining options: the main restaurant and the rooftop bar. Both will be à la carte dining, but VIPs staying at Ocean Point are allowed to enjoy the amenities of next door’s Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, which offers a breakfast buffet. Note: Guests staying at Sonesta Maho Beach Resort are not, however, allowed to use the amenities at Ocean Point.
