Westin Dawn Beach Resort & Spa:
The new Westin Dawn Beach Resort and Spa is located on the east coast of St. Maarten, just minutes from Oyster Pond and the French side border. 308 luxury rooms and 6 suites are situated on acres of lush, landscaped beachfront property. Private balconies offer gorgeous ocean and mountain views. The resort boasts the largest infinity pool on St. Maarten, with a swim-up bar and hot tub. Find wellness at the fitness room and full-service spa, or entertainment at the Vegas style casino. 2 oceanfront restaurants, pool bar, poolside café, lobby, and room service are available to meet your dining needs, as well as 10,000 square feet of meeting and dining space.
The Westin’s beach faces the morning sun and provides beach chair service so you never have to move from your luxurious lounge chair. Take a long walk down the rest of Dawn Beach for a long stretch of powdery white sand and cool blue surf. If you are up for a bit of a swim, a teeming tropical reef sits just beyond the surf for a great snorkeling experience. Further up the coast, find Le Galeon, St. Martin’s premier wind and kite surfing spot, as well as a calm sheltered bay great for swimming. Chez Pat provides food and drink as well as water sports rentals.
The area of Oyster Pond is only a 5-minute drive in each direction from both Orient Bay, with its many restaurants, water sports, boutiques, and conveniences, as well as Philipsburg, the Dutch side capitol and duty free shopping haven. Just next door to the Westin is Captain Oliver’s Marina, a picturesque marina with elegant sailboats, yachts, and more. The marina is lined with restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, and a gourmet grocery store. Finally, many small art galleries, French restaurants, and cafes line hillsides of the area, adding to the wild beauty of eastern St. Maarten/Martin.
