Situated just on the Dutch side of St. Maarten, on one of the most gorgeous beaches in the Caribbean, sits the Westin St. Maarten. An absolutely perfect getaway spot for whatever it is you’re getting away from. Forget your troubles and let the Westin take care of your every need.

The view from their rooms is stunning, to say the least, and watching the sunset was one of the highlights of every evening. Dinner by the water followed by cozying up in their big, comfy bed was the perfect end to the first day on the island.

What is an island getaway without a trip to the spa? Westin has an amazing spa on location which will tend to your every want and need. If you are feeling especially lazy, the massage therapist will come to your room and pamper you in your own space. Who could ask for anything more?

A stones throw away from several attractions, spend a day at Loterie Farm – an old plantation turned nature reserve. Plan a lunch there then go on a zip line through the rainforest. For family fun, check out the Butterfly Farm. A literal flying rainbow greets you as you walk into the enclosure and visit with butterflies from all over the globe.

Returning to the Westin, you don’t have to choose between beach and pool, you can switch between them. Their infinity pool is located right on the shoreline, allowing for the most incredible view as you bathe – and a fabulous float up bar! Sincerely could you ask for more from a getaway on the island?
