Resort Description

Queen's Garden Resort is a small but first-class boutique resort nestled on a hillside on the island of Saba in the Caribbean Netherlands. 

The resort offers luxurious and modern accomodation mixed with traditional Saban architecture. All rooms come with air conditioning, flat screen TVs and views of the island's lush foliage or Caribbean Sea. The resort's natural beauty makes it the perfect choice for those seeking a subtly-romantic destination - perfect for honeymooners!

The resort offers a refreshing swimming pool with panoramic views of the island, plus a quality restaurant serving up fresh, locally-produced cuisine. Wine fanatics will be in heaven - there are over 140 different bottles to choose from! 

What makes this resort stand apart from the rest is Frangipani Spa. Stop by for an open-air massage or body wrap, or detox in the Finnish sauna and Turkish steam bath. Regardless of which treatments you opt for, make sure to leave time to chill out on the relaxation deck, complete with tropical plants, a Jacuzzi and panoramic views of the island and ocean beyond. 

Saba offers countless activities for adventurous, active and artistic travelers. Explore the old yet well kept trails (these pre-date the island's roads!), get to know the local reef inhabitants or join a sunset cruise. Other activities include a glass workshop, Geo-Caching, snorkeling, shopping, bird watching and more.
