While the delightful ambience and succulent meals are endless at the Infinity restaurant, we’re very happy to announce the restaurant remodel has been completed. Another toast will be in order once the bar and lounge remodel is finished by mid-October.
These extensive renovations, which began last May, follow the previous renovating of all the units in the Resort.
Visitors will find the restaurant’s new furnishings and accented flooring under large, cantilevered umbrellas (imported from Europe, by the way) and stylish chandeliers greatly enhances the indoor and outdoor dining experience. The view of the tropical Atlantic is unmatched on St. Maarten, and the Infinity Restaurant offers some of the best seats in the Caribbean for taking in the sights. A greater emphasis is being given to the outdoor dining terrace, which will be open for all three meals. Guests are most welcome, weather permitting. The cantilevered umbrellas provide comfortable shade while dining or enjoying a favorite beverage. The deck’s concrete floor has been replaced with gorgeous slate — giving an ever-changing and stylish appearance.
Additional touches include a completely new look for the entry foyer, as well as rebuilt and enlarged guest restrooms (that include a room for handicapped use). With the addition of custom-built furnishings, such as a Maître d’s desk and vintage wine wall display rack, it now has a feeling of arrival and hospitality. In addition, the reworked traffic flow makes it far easier for patrons to move about the restaurant. The expanded bathrooms and upgraded furniture and decor includes tables, chairs, fabrics, wall coverings, artwork and ceiling treatments. This gives Infinity a modern and elegant look, with its traditional nod to Caribbean colors and style.
Given its exceptional location on the ocean and the absolutely magnificent view, the bar and lounge, currently under construction, will sport a sailing boat and a nautical theme utilizing marine colors and design details. It promises to make anyone feel comfortable hoisting a beer or drinking a martini — shaken, not stirred, of course. Bar service is being provided through the restaurant until the bar is completed by mid-October.
Along with the new restaurant we’ve created a new menu featuring succulent, fresh and local dishes that are sure to please all palates. We’ve modernized our selection with healthier and more delectable choices; while at the same time retained some of our favorite dishes from the previous menu.
The management of OBBR thanks all our guests for putting up with any inconveniences during the Infinity Restaurant renovations. We hope you think, as we do, that the inconvenience was worth it.
We’re going to hold off dedicating the opening of the restaurant and bar while the opening of Infinity is in its “soft phase.” This will give the staff an opportunity to learn how to operate in the new facility, and allow time for the completion of the bar and lounge remodel. The resort is planning a grand opening for both in October when the project is fully completed. It promises to be a great event, and all owners are of course invited. We’ll send out notices as soon as we have a solid date so you can book your rooms for this wonderful celebration.
Many thanks to all involved, including our great on-island staff that labored so hard, as well as our architect, Joseph Sistler of Joseph Allen and Company, and our designer, Kim Pabor of Pabor designs.
