Son Risa condos
Son Risa is a new condominium complex situated on the lush tropical hillside of Pelican Key, the Dutch side’s premier upscale neighborhood, located on the southern coast of St. Maarten. Each unit has a private balcony from which you can take in the best views on St. Maarten. The glittering Caribbean Sea stretches out in every shade of blue towards to horizon offering incredible sunsets. On clear days, views of neighboring islands in the distance appear like emerald pyramids rising from the sea. A common pool with a spacious patio and lounge furniture also provides stunning views.
For beach goers, walk down to the bottom of the hill and take in the natural beauty of Pelican Beach, tidal pools fill with tiny marine life and luxurious villas line the backdrop. Next-door is Kim Sha Beach, for when you want a more social setting. Both La Bamba and Buccaneer’s beach bar and grills offer food, drinks, live music, bonfires, and movie screenings. Just across the Dutch side drawbridge, Simpson Bay Beach stretches for miles of uninterrupted white sand. Largely residential, this is a local favorite, offering a break from beach chairs and commercial buzz. The calm water is great for a swim and the powdered sugar sand beckons for long leisurely strolls or an invigorating jog. Check out Karakter beach lounge at the far end of the bay for excellent food, drinks, and ambiance.
Pelican Key offers many convenient amenities. The Hollywood Casino glitters all night long, international restaurants, piano bar, boutiques, dive and water sports shop, mini bank, spa, marina, deli and grocery store are all here. For even more entertainment options and residential amenities, head just down the hill into the heart of Simpson Bay Village, where you’ll find a movie theater, grocery stores, banks, gas stations, salons, boutiques, bars, restaurants, nightclubs, marinas, and more casinos. A five-minute drive to Cole Bay takes you to St. Maarten Montessori School, and a ten-minute drive leads to Learning Unlimited in Cay Hill.
