The Edge Pool at Sonesta Ocean Point Resort in St. Maarten

Millennials making their way to St. Maarten should check out any of the three types of pools at the new, luxury, all-inclusive Sonesta Ocean Point Resort. 

Sonesta Ocean Point Resort in St. Maarten is home to a stylish Swim Out Pool and the modern-chic Edge Pool, which is perched on a cliff on the southernmost point of the island, featuring its own manmade beach providing extraordinary views of the infinite horizon over Maho Bay.

The Edge Pool, Travel Agent's personal favorite at this hotel, uses silica-based sand that lines the bottom of the pool, featuring a cleansing filtration system, while loungers and umbrellas line the beach.

The four feet deep pool is perfect for a refreshing dip and the sunsets here are incredible. After dark, the party is just getting started as fire pits take over the scene and illuminate along the edge creating a dramatic and inviting atmosphere. 

Sonesta Ocean Point’s signature Swim Out Suites feature seamless access from the terraces directly into the Swim Out pool that meanders along side the hotel’s façade and charming pathway, offering gorgeous southern sea views. In pool loungers provide guests with the perfect spot to cool off all day long.

In addition, Sonesta Ocean Point features the more traditional Point Pool, surrounded by a deck, dotted with cabanas and loungers, centrally located overlooking the entire resort, beach and Caribbean Sea. All pools are exclusive to Ocean Point guests and feature attentive food, beverage and towel poolside service.
