September to Remember 2021

Let the Good Times Roll!

September is just around the corner, and we’ve got a special gumbo of events and activities planned to make this year truly memorable. This year, we’re bringing back one of our best-loved themes: Mardi Gras. If you’ve experienced our unique Caribbean version before, you’ll be back. If you’ve never experienced it at Oyster Bay–like the song says–you only live but once, so let the good times roll!

Join us for a week of festivities, fun, and prizes! You’ll enjoy free beach trips, prizes, entertainment, and of course, a Mardi Gras parade. Plus lots of costumes, cajun cuisine, and cocktails to keep those good times rolling.

Don’t forget your black and white formalwear for the big “Jazzy Friday” event at Infinity Restaurant.

Introducing the Veranda Market and Bistro

Oyster Bay Beach Resort is proud to announce the development of the new Veranda Market and Bistro — featuring an expansive ocean front deck with bistro, bar and grocery market.

The Veranda Market and Bistro will expand upon the old Beau Beau’s Bar and Grill and offer both dine-in and take-out as well as packaged goods.

Construction began in June with a projected completion date of August 2021. The roughly 3,500 sq. ft. space will be completely new including a larger deck, indoor/outdoor seating and a brand-new kitchen.

The Veranda Market will be the largest grocery store in the Oyster Pond community with an extensive selection, including kitchen staples, premium coffee, wine and spirits, gourmet treats, as well as specialty meats and fish. Since all Oyster Bay Beach Resort units have kitchens or kitchenettes, the new market is anticipated to be a big benefit for guests. The onsite grocery will eliminate the need for a trip to Philipsburg — currently, the closest market.

“We expect the grocery market to be very popular with our guests, as well as the locals seeking an up-scale, affordable shopping experience,” notes OBBR Managing Director Mike Dolente.

The Veranda is to feature expansive glass doors and windows with ocean views from inside the market, as well as panoramic vistas from the Bistro’s deck and bar.

The Bistro’s full kitchen will offer lighter fare including fresh salads, made-to-order sandwiches, pizza from our own pizza oven, selections from the grill, rotisserie chicken and fresh food from the market. A newly constructed outdoor bar will serve all of your favorite frozen cocktails, best-selling beers, wines and liquors as well as full food service. The Bistro will be open daily allowing guests the option of eat-in or take-out.

“The Veranda Market and Bistro will give OBBR guests and local residents more choices when it comes to delicious, affordable meals and top-quality grocery shopping,” added Dolente.

Stay tuned for future updates regarding the Veranda Market and Bistro.

St. Maarten Travel Guidelines

Oyster Bay Beach Resort is offering onsite PCR Testing!

As of January 26, 2021, the U.S. will require all travelers coming back into the country to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test before boarding an airplane. That means you will need to be tested on the Island before returning home. But, as we like to say in St. Maarten: No Problem!

Every Wednesday morning we will have medical personnel onsite to conduct COVID-19 tests for all resort guests at a cost of $75, delivering results within three days. For guests who require a different schedule, arrangements can be made for testing on any day at additional cost. To sweeten the deal, we’re offering free rum daiquiris for all participants.  

We’re here to ensure your stay is both safe and fun! If you have any questions about your travel to St. Maarten, feel free to call us at 1(866) 978-0212.

Princess Juliana Airport (SXM) is now welcoming all travelers!

The safety of our guests and staff is of primary importance. Our entire resort team works daily to follow the latest recommendations and protocols and maintain our strict cleaning regiment. You can find our Resort Health and Safety Guidelines here. Our goal is to provide you a safe, fun, and enjoyable stay! 

The island of St Maarten is open to travelers from around the world including Europe and the Americas. The government of St. Maarten has instituted specific travel guidelines that all travelers should be aware of before traveling. Please review the island’s travel guidelines here.
