We returned late last month from Sint Maarten’s Sonesta Great Bay Beach Resort & Casino and can highly recommend it for lovers who are looking for a relaxed beach resort that’s close enough to Philipsburg to stroll to town for a drink or some shopping and far enough from the action to enjoy peace and quiet on the powdery resort beach. We’ve just received word that Sonesta Great Bay is now offering a new romance package.
The Package: The package includes:
• Three nights in Ocean View accommodations
• Complimentary bottle of Champagne and assorted Belgian chocolates upon arrival
• Daily breakfast at the Bay View Restaurant
• One romantic dinner at one of the resort’s restaurants (one glass of house wine per person included)
Price: Romance at Great Bay package rates begin at $525 based on double occupancy (or upgrade to a Deluxe Ocean View room for an extra $25 per night), now through December 21, 2007. From January 5 through April 14, 2008, package is available starting at $930 for double occupancy (upgrade to Deluxe Ocean View room for $50 per night). Rates are subject to an additional 21% tax and surcharge fees. Transfers to and from the Princess Juliana International Airport available for $15 per person.
Why It’s Dreamy: The newly re-branded 257-room Sonesta Great Bay Beach Resort & Casino in St. Maarten is located on a one mile stretch of beach near the capital of Philipsburg. This four-star property is fresh from a $12 million renovation and offers three swimming pools, whirlpool, three restaurants, four bars, the Golden Casino and the Vitality Oasis health club and spa. The two of you can also enjoy a whole menu of water sports, tours and excursions, tennis, wireless Internet and Internet café, and live nightly entertainment.
