The 42-room Alamanda Resort is one of French St. Martin's newest oceanfront hotels. The resort is just a short distance from the beach and a slew of great restaurants in the neighboring Orient Village. The rooms, suites, and family duplexes offer a breathtaking view of the powdery sand and azure waters of Orient Beach, the most popular beach on the French half of St. Martin. The intimate retreat features a roof-top deck with beverage service, a pool, continental breakfast, and complimentary shuttle service from the international airport, just 30 minutes away.

Set on the French side of St Maarten island, this resort features direct access to sunning, swimming, and watersports along a mile of powdery Atlantic Ocean beach.
