Surrounded by comfy loungers, Millennials can quench their thirst from an array of cocktails, including Queen’s Gardens’ signature mojito, and from one of the Caribbean’s most extensive wine lists from the adjacent Ocean Bar and Lounge, which extends to an intimate terrace sheltered by several ancient mango trees.

Queen's Gardens Resort is located on the Caribbean island of Saba, near St. Maarten in the Dutch Caribbean, and is often considered one of the most LGBT-welcoming hotels in the Caribbean. The 1,200 feet elevation atop Troy Hill keeps this luxurious property secluded and allows natural cooling by the fresh breeze flowing in from the sea and the mountains. Twelve suites each occupy a private floor with an in-suite Jacuzzi and views of the Caribbean Sea or Saba rain forest. 

The resort also includes the new Frangipani Spa, which is said to be the first and only spa on the island offering an array of treatments from full body massages, body wraps, and scrubs to manicures, pedicures and unique specialty treatments. A central pool and room service are also available. 

With increasing numbers of gay and lesbian tour packages being offered by the island, and with American travelers not only accepting the LGBT community, but embracing it, Travel Agent expects Saba to get on the mainstream map very soon. So, go now while it’s still a secret.

Saba is also a scuba enthusiasts paradise and known by experts as one of the best diving spots in the world. With a population of about 1,600 spread out over four charming villages, Saba is intimate and inviting retreat welcoming couples, families and groups.
