The all-inclusive, adults-only Secrets St. Martin Resort & Spa in French St. Martin will open on Feb. 1, marking the entry of AMResorts on the island.
The 258-suite resort, including 53 swim-out suites, is a conversion of the Riu Palace St. Martin.
Facilities include six dining options, of which three are a la carte; five bars and lounges; a beach; the Secrets Spa by Pevonia; access to nearby golf courses; and what the resort says is the largest infinity pool on the island.
Guest activities include dance and cooking classes, bocce ball, darts, beach and pool volleyball and a range of water sports (scuba dive lessons carry a fee).
Packages will include wedding, honeymoon and vow renewals, among others.
Small dogs under 22 pounds are welcome in specific room categories for $65 per night. While at the resort, dogs are allowed only in designated areas of the grounds and are not permitted at the beach, pool, fitness center, spa, shops and golf courses.
