The Morgan Resort & Spa recently opened in St. Maarten.

The new five-star luxury boutique hotel is minutes away from Maho Beach, Sunset Beach Bar and the Princess Juliana Airport, where guests can watch large and small aircraft glide into the runway at heights so low they can practically touch them. Guests will also appreciate the close proximity of The Morgan Resort & Spa to Maho Village, which offers watersports, recreational activities, casino gaming, upscale shopping, dining and entertainment. 

“We are thrilled to introduce St. Maarten’s newest luxury boutique hotel and welcome guests as they enjoy a summer vacation like no other,” said Stewart Weiner, COO of The Morgan Resort & Spa, in a press statement. “Watching the property come together over the past few years, I find myself more excited every day for the amazing experiences our guests will enjoy, whether they are visiting for business or pleasure.”

The 124 guestrooms and suites feature private exterior entrances and balconies or terraces, and are furnished with modern furniture and nautically inspired accents and artwork. Guests will enjoy bright, airy rooms with pillow top bedding, luxury spa-style bathrooms with glass walk-in showers, intuitive technology including 55-inch flat-screen televisions, iHome docking stations and free WiFi.
