Sonesta Great Bay Hotel and Condos

Interested in Hotel development or development land and opportunities contact professionals <<click here>>.

Located in southeastern St. Maarten, overlooking the beautiful Great Bay and Philipsburg, the Dutch side capitol, the Sonesta Great Bay Resort and Casino offers 257 rooms of teakwood, brilliant island prints, and incredible ocean and garden/mountain views. This resort has it all, 3 outdoor pools including one infinity pool, 2 whirlpools, floodlit tennis court, fitness center, island boutique and gift shop, car rental service, 3 restaurants, and 4 bars. For some adventure, head to the water sports and dive center, or try the activities desk for water aerobics, volleyball, crab racing, tennis, shuffleboard, table soccer, meringue dance lessons, blackjack lessons, and table tennis. The excursion desk will help you plan trips around the island, horseback riding, off-roading, or trips to neighboring islands. Finally, become a high roller at the Golden Casino, conveniently inside the resort grounds.

At your front door, Great Bay is a huge stretch of white sand. Sunbathe, swim, stroll, check out the new boardwalk with its many restaurants, cafes, and boutiques, or try out some water sports. Just next door, Little Bay is great for snorkeling, scuba diving, and just hanging out. Nestled between the green hills of Belair and the rocky point of Fort Amsterdam, the first Dutch outpost in the Caribbean, this is a stunning spot.

Sonesta Great Bay is a 5-minute walk into the heart of downtown Philipsburg, with its classic Antillean gingerbread style houses and infamous Front Street duty-free shopping. Local and international designers are here, as well as an open-air local market, and enough diamonds and gems to make the Queen swoon. Check out l’Escargot for some fine dining, or Chesterfields for a relaxing breakfast, lunch, or dinner on a dock overlooking the bay. As the capitol of the Dutch side, Philipsburg is also home to many government buildings, banks, offices, and residential amenities such as grocery stores, salons, pharmacies, and doctors’ offices.
