Located in southwestern St. Maarten, in the highly sought after residential community of Simpson Bay Beach, LasArenas is a new complex with only 12 luxury apartments (3 per floor). High ceilings and private balconies enhance the views out over the wide, turquoise water of Simpson Bay. On clear days, the views stretches out towards the horizon all the way to neighboring Saba, an emerald mountain rising into the clouds. A beachfront infinity pool glitters below, with elegant yet plush outdoor furnishings. The complex is gated, with 24-hour security, to add to your peace of mind in this picturesque paradise.
The town of Simpson Bay is convenient to every amenity – from boutiques, to international restaurants, bars, cafes, grocery stores, water sports and dive shops, movie theater, pharmacies, doctors’ offices, casino, banks, etc. The Simpson Bay Lagoon, the largest lagoon in this part of the Caribbean, has many marinas, waterfront restaurants and bars, and even a working waterfront antique carousel and ice cream parlour. A five-minute drive to Cole Bay takes you to St. Maarten Montessori School, and a ten-minute drive leads to Learning Unlimited Academy in Cay Hill.
For beach goers, you will have a spot on St. Maarten’s favorite residential beach. Simpson Bay Beach is uninterrupted by large hotels and resorts, or any kind of commercial hustle and bustle. The white powder sand stretches for miles and the surf is usually calm. Elegant sailboats and impressive private yachts wait here, in the safety of the bay, to enter the Lagoon through the Dutch Side drawbridge. To the west is Burgeaux Bay, an excellent spot for snorkeling, and to the east is the lively Kim Sha Beach, with water sports, live music and dancing, and plenty to eat and drink.
