INTRO: AirSXM's New Summer Shared Charters

Dear friends and clients,

In May we saw the end of the 2013-2014 high season. A very good season it was. We plan to use to slow low season to test some new travel services and new destinations in the Caribbean we have not been servicing at all in the past with our shared charters programme. Destinations such as Guyana, Jamaica, Trinidad, Haiti and Colombia. In December we are planning to service Suriname with a Christmas shared charter.

In the coming months we will keep you posted on developments in this area.

Happy Readings!

Terrance Rey

5. NEWS ITEM: New Five-Star Resort Will Be Epic For St. Maarten

MAHO--CEO and President of the Maho Group Saro Spadaro says the new Ocean Point at Maho Development, a five-star luxury development, will be “an epic change for tourism in St. Maarten" which will demonstrate that the principals at the flagship resort still believe in St. Maarten after four decades.

By Michael Granger

Sonesta St Maarten all-inclusive Resorts, which includes Sonesta Great Bay Resort and Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, both four-star, all-inclusive resorts, is looking to up its game by adding a luxury, five-star, all-inclusive resort just next door to Sonesta Maho Beach Resort.

Hesova, director of business development for Sonesta St. Maarten All-Inclusive Resorts recently told online portal “We just felt like there was a market for this. “We looked at resorts like Sandals and Dreams and what they were doing, and just knew that the luxury all-inclusives are something that people are really going for now. And we have the location for it.”

Spadaro told The Daily Herald on Friday: “With the Ocean Point project, we are excited to pave the way in innovative hospitality, and be the first true five-star hotel on the Dutch side of St. Maarten. From a historical perspective, Ocean Point, which is the former Ocean Terrace building at Maho, (also the original Concord Hotel, which of course went through many renovations and additions), was acquired by The Maho Group back in the 1970s.

“As a company, we pride ourselves in being historic visionaries, and 40 years of our dedication to this country have proven that. From our diverse real estate and gaming options to our resort and lifestyle brands, we believe in St. Maarten,” Spadaro said.

The adults-only hotel is expected to have a soft opening in October, with work ahead of schedule. There will be around 130 rooms and suites. They will be housed in Sonesta Maho Beach’s original Ocean Terrace, which was built in the ‘70s. Although the shell of the structure will remain, the rest of the building is being completely transformed.

Sonesta Maho Luxury Suite

The lowest category here is going to be the Junior Suites. On the first floor, there will be 25 swim-out Junior Suites, while Sunset Suites located on the second, third and fourth floors will have a terrace with plunge pools. The best rooms, however, will be the Luxury Rooftop Suites. There will be about 15-20 of these. These luxurious rooms will have all the amenities that clients have come to expect in a luxury resort.

Hesova says private/concierge service will be available for all room categories. Rooms will range from roughly US $350 per person, per night for the lowest category and US $700 per person, per night for the Luxury Rooftop Suites.

There will be two dining options: the main restaurant and the rooftop bar. Both will be a la carte dining, but clients staying at Ocean Point at Maho are allowed to enjoy the amenities of next door’s Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, which offers a breakfast buffet.

Hesova also noted that there are still discussions ongoing on how to handle transfers to and from the airport and luxury vehicles are strongly being considered.

“A few years ago, we created the first all-inclusive resort on the island, and then with Sonesta Great Bay we opened the first adults-only all-inclusive. With more than US $25 million invested in Maho and Ocean Point this year, we'll be bringing an elevated level of style and design never before seen in this country. It's going to be an epic change for tourism in St. Maarten,” Spadaro said.
