Beachfront boutique on St. Maarten, with a lounge bar and restaurant, beach attendants and a private balcony in every room

The Lowdown

Situated directly on the beach at Great Bay, Holland House Beach Hotel has 54 guestrooms that have a simple, beachy aesthetic: pops of lemongrass and mauve, hardwood floors, flat-screen TVs and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that open up to spacious furnished private balconies. Walk straight out onto the sand to the hotel’s private beach loungers, where attendants are always on hand to bring you a refreshing cocktail or a bite to eat. The Ocean Lounge Bar & Restaurant mixes Caribbean and European cuisines into mouthwatering surf-and-turf. Signature dishes include roast rack of lamb and mahi-mahi and caviar. For extra R&R, the hotel can arrange in-room massages and aromatherapy treatments. But if you’re looking to flex that plastic, step out the hotel’s front door and you’ll find yourself on Philipsburg’s main shopping street.

In the Area

Pop your head below the ocean’s surface with Sea Trek, a helmet diving tour that takes you to see colorful fish and sunken shipwrecks without the need for diving certification. Another unique way to explore the island’s coral reefs is on a tour with Coconut Reef Glass Bottom Canoes; the company also runs a surf school and snorkeling tours. With 25 miles of trails, and itineraries ranging from mountain treks to shoreline strolls, St. Maarten is a hiker’s paradise. Start at Loterie Farm for guided and self-guided hikes.

On Front Street in Philipsburg, Great beach on Great Bay , next to all the best shops on Front Street. Walk to the taxi stand and you are on your way to see the Great and Very Friendly Island of St. Maarten.

Romantic vacation

Excellent service. Lovely view from our Executive, beach view room. Beach service was good. Food at the restaurant was very good. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast. All the people who serviced the hotel were friendly. We will go back! The hotel is right in front of the beach. Excellent location since you can walk to stores and restaurants near this hotel. Diana Gumbs in reservations reserved a car for us to and from the airport, she was so helpful! The area is very safe for walking and the weather is beautiful. We cannot wait to go back.

Beautiful Place - Outstanding Service

Stopped by the bar on our recent cruise and had the best experience ever. Anthony at the bar is fabulous. He made the best Mojitos we've ever had. We ordered the Chicken Wings and Spring Rolls for a bite to eat and they were delicious. We did not want to leave. Will be looking into booking directly to stay here in the future. Beautiful and clean and the service was amazing.
