How to Find the Perfect Hotel


A hotel is so much more than a place to lay your head. It’s a temporary home and a restful sanctuary. A much-needed place to rally and revive after a night of peak dance floor experiences. We’ve taken some of the guesswork out of your search with a quick rundown of our favorite places to stay while we enjoy SXM Festival.


Sonesta Ocean Point Resort

Perched above Maho Bay, Sonesta Ocean Point Resort offers an adult’s only, all-inclusive experience in a luxurious, sustainable setting. While the ocean view rooms offer serene vistas, the Sunset Swimout Suites adds direct access to the pool from your private terrace. Sonesta Ocean Point Resort feels exclusive, and all guests have access to the sprawling grounds and amenities at the adjacent, family-friendly Sonesta Maho Beach Resort.


Hommage Hotel

Hommage Hotel’s 148 bright and spacious rooms offer a truly unique experience. The well-appointed quarters are set amongst the hotel’s tranquil palm tree museum gardens surrounded by sculptures and paintings that pay tribute to the classic arts and local artists. It’s located minutes from some of the island's most splendid beaches Baie Rouge, Baie Aux Prunes, and Baie Longue. And for those days when you want to keep it low key, you can visit the Aqua Spa, and relax with a cocktail at the French bistro styled Lily’s Café.



Lush tropical gardens and stunning views of Grand Case Bay make L’Esplanade feel like a private retreat. Each of the hotel’s luxuriously furnished rooms features a terrace that overlooks the ocean. For those who need to feel even more grounded on the daily, Ti Temple offers complimentary daily yoga classes in the hotel gardens.

Les Balcons d’Oyster Pond

The charming bungalows at Les Balcons will make you feel at home right at home. The peaceful grounds are dotted with unique cottages each with its own character. With amenities ranging from private pools to extra large terraces, Les Balcons is every bit as idyllic as the French Village of Oyster Pond it is set in. Each unit has a kitchen, many of which open straight out to the terrace.


Grand Case Beach Club

Location is everything, and Grand Case Beach Club’s beachfront access and views of Antigua are the perfect way to make sure you enjoy as much beach time as possible. The spacious apartment-style room offers all the comforts of home with the exemplary service you’d expect on vacation.  If you plan to attend with a group, the dual-level, two-bedroom deluxe offers the right mix of privacy and company.


Belmond La Samanna

Belmond’s private beach, expansive villas, and nanny service are the ultimate luxurious St Martin experience. Book a spa treatment, enjoy one of the two world-class restaurants, and then take a painting class. All without ever leaving the property.

Simpson Bay Resort

The Simpson Bay Resort’s two properties offer beauty, fun, and relaxation for any mood. The Villas are situated on the gorgeous Simpson Bay shores. Each of the 83 two-bedroom, two-bath spaces offer sweeping carribean views. If it’s beach access you prefer, then it’s The Resort you're after. The freshly updated studio, one, two, and three bedroom suites offer enough space for everyone in your crew. And since the Simpson Bay Resort is essentially on the border of French St. Martin and Dutch Sint Maarten you are just minutes from all the island has to offer.

Oyster Bay Resort

Oyster Bay offers the amenities and accommodations you need to feel pampered and unrestrained on your island vacay. It’s true beauty lies in the breathtaking Infinity Pool. Built above a bustling coral reef with panoramic views of Oyster Bay. Imagine you stroll down from your sumptuous suite, swim to the water’s edge to take in the views, and then enjoy a delectable poolside brunch at The Infinity Restaurant.


Located just a skip from renowned Porto Cupecoy Marina. The Adonis allows easy access to St. Marteen’s picturesque shopping, yachting, and culinary center. The property’s 52 rooms are modern and elegant. And the location can’t be beat. 

Atrium Beach Resort & Spa

Spacious one and two bedroom apartment style suites stretch out above Simpson Bay and give you and your crew enough space to unwind. Connect in a new way, while you prepare a meal together in the full kitchen. If you're after an even more luxurious experience, book one of the glorious penthouses. These 2-floor, 3 bedroom, 3 bath villas feature a gourmet kitchen, formal dining area, and sweeping views of the Carribean Sea, Pelican Bay, and Simpson Lagoon. When you add on the fact that you can fully unwind with an extensive list of spa treatments, the Atrium is a beautifully appointed space to round out your SXM experience.
