The Destination
Named by Christopher Columbus for Martin of Tours, a Catholic saint considered to be a spiritual bridge across Europe, the eastern Caribbean island of Sint Maarten (or Saint Martin) is a type of bridge in its own right. The island is shared by France and the Netherlands, but the physical division is blurry, since the island is a unified stretch of forested hills and white sand beaches. Still, each side has a unique culture with distinct ties to its nation of origin. Saint Martin's cosmopolitan vibe and haute cuisine echo Paris's sophistication, while Sint Maarten's nightlife brings to mind Amsterdam.

The Digs
Overlooking the gorgeous Great Bay Harbor and just a ten-minute stroll from downtown Philipsburg, Sonesta Great Bay Beach Resort & Casino delivers the best of St. Maarten's tropical views and high-end shopping. Each of the resort's guest rooms boasts breezy Caribbean-style décor, complete with teakwood furnishings, colorful linens, and sunny island prints. Plus, when it comes to first-class amenities—like satellite TV and iPod docks—this resplendant resort delivers. In addition to strolling along the property's mile-long stretch of shimmering beach, guests can take a dip in one of three pools, break a sweat at the fully equipped gym, or grab a bite at one of seven restaurants and bars.

The Diversions

St. Maarten Zoological Park
St. Maarten Museum

  • "Vibrant hues of orange and yellow accent the resort's comfortable, Caribbean-style guest rooms. The circular marble lobby faces Great Bay and overlooks the cruise-ship pier on one side and mountains on the other. One big plus is the white-sand beach."
