AMResorts will make its debut in St. Martin when it converts the Riu Palace St. Martin into a Secrets resort in 2019.

The property has been closed since Hurricane Irma damaged it last September.

The 350-room, adults-only resorts is in Anse Marcel on the north side of the island with views of Anguilla. The resort is 35 minutes from Princess Juliana Airport in St. Maarten.

The owner, Sole Resorts, is adding a rooftop pool and swim-up suites, among other enhancements.

Sole Resorts has collaborated with AMResorts on three other conversions.
