The Oyster Bay Beach Resort (OBBR) has been named a top five resort in the Caribbean by Travel + Leisure Magazine, beating out 495 competitors. OBBR has gone from strictly a hotel to a resort and timeshare community over the last three years by investing $20 million into renovations and upgrades.
St. Maarten is only 37 sq miles and very popular with Dutch and French tourists, so this is a great honor for OBBR. Located on the East coast of St. Maarten overlooking Oyster Pond and the Atlantic Ocean, the ownership of OBBR says the key to their lofty ranking is attention to customer care and their great location.
The fine dining at La Noche, where fishermen offer fresh seafood, is well regarded. Catch your own fish by going on many deep-sea expeditions offered by locals. Nearby St. Barth’s is the Caribbean’s version of Spain’s Ibiza, where partying and models abound. If you visit in March, you can attend the Heineken Regatta. Hiking, horseback riding and dining are some of the biggest pulls while visiting here.
