Coral Beach Club St. Maarten


I am not sure there is a picture of this place that can actually do it justice. For St. Maarten, I’d be surprised if there is a better “private” resort. I say private because this club is all about seclusion. It doesn’t have a bar, or a restaurant, though you can rent a private chef during your stay. It doesn’t have great access to cabs and is not very close to most places you will want to go…although, having traveled all over the island and visiting most of the towns, I’m not sure anything is technically close to anything else. All of this being said, this place is outstanding. I stayed in a two bedroom bungalow on the second level. The entire resort is right on the beach so access is a few steps away. Every room has a private plunge pool and most have seating areas inside the pools. Every place has a giant outdoor balcony or patio space. Every room has huge floor to ceiling accordion doors so the entire apartment can be open to the outdoors. The amenities were top of the line, especially for what you usually find in the Caribbean. There was an amazing market right across the street that had fresh baguettes, eggs, breakfast shit like that. I absolutely loved walking there in the morning to pick up what we would make to start our day. Bottom line, naked swimming in your front deck private plunge pool is pretty baller.


– There is a seafood restaurant across the street as well, and a private boat charter location. Just down the beach there is a bar at a hotel that gets pretty hopping at night.
