Sonesta Ocean Point Resort opens in St. Maarten

Sonesta Ocean Point Resort soft-opened as a five-star, all-suite property in St. Maarten in the Caribbean. The “resort within a resort” sits on the southernmost point of the island, adjacent to the Sonesta Maho Beach Resort & Casino.

After a multi-million dollar renovation to the former Ocean Terrace building, the 129-room Sonesta Ocean Point emerged. Blending contemporary design with a Caribbean vibe, the resort's accommodations range from the 480 square-foot Junior Suite King to the 2,600 square-foot Luxury Penthouse. The resort also has custom-designed furnishings, artwork and a modern lighting concept.

Exclusive to Sonesta Ocean Point guests, the resort has three pools including The Edge infinity pool with private beach on the cliff, Swim Out pool connected to its namesake suites and The Point Pool. There are also three bars and lounges, including the Sunset Lounge & Bar, Azul Rooftop Bar for private functions, the contemporary lobby café and bar Martin’s and Mediterranean-influenced Azul restaurant. An in-resort flagship Wanderlista Boutique is also available.
