One Year Later: Divi Little Bay Beach Resort & St. Maarten Thriving Once Again
Exactly one year after Hurricane Irma hit Divi Little Bay Beach Resort and St. Maarten, the island and its resilient people are well on their way to recovery and eager to welcome back travelers to enjoy the island’s stunning beaches, duty-free shopping, mouthwatering restaurants, exhilarating excursions and fabulous accommodations!
“The island and our beautiful resort have come a long way from where we were this time last year,” said Marco Galaverna, Divi Resorts President & COO. “Twelve months ago, Divi Resorts Management made a commitment to our owners, members, loyal guests and the people of St. Maarten, that we would come back, not just the same as prior to the storms, but even better. We’ve kept that promise, and our beautiful resort nestled on its own private peninsula, which reopened in May, has been completely renovated, refreshed and refurbished with many new and exciting amenities.”
The newly renovated Divi Little Bay features completely refreshed units, updated Seabreeze and Infinity Pools, Fort Amsterdam Cafe (formerly Bayview Café) with gourmet coffee and a new menu, new chairs and areas to relax at the pools and beach, new furniture for Gizmo’s Bar & Grill, a restored dock where boat trips have resumed, brand new restaurant menus and upgraded landscaping and lighting throughout the resort.
Updates still to come in 2018 include a stunning new main pool called the pureocean pool (formerly the Casitas pool), which will be enlarged with waterfalls, a new pureocean pool bar and an expansive seating area, a new eatery, The Shack, serving Caribbean BBQ, Jerk Chicken, Roti and more, expanding pureocean Restaurant and adding new terrace furniture and lighting and creating a new kid’s space and game room.
“We were thrilled to show off our new digs not long after reopening when the famed Patriots Cheerleaders visited to shoot their annual swimsuit calendar and Sideline to Shoreline promotional video,” said Divi Little Bay’s General Manager Anne-Marie Brooks. “The ladies had an amazing time exploring both the French and Dutch sides of the island, meeting locals, dignitaries and media, and learning more about St. Maarten’s culture and history through a variety of planned activities.”
Highlights from the Patriots Cheerleaders’ visit include:
• Perfume Experience at Tijon Parfumerie
• Loterie Farm
• Guided Tour of Front Street in Philipsburg
• Philipsburg Courthouse
• Guavaberry Emporium
• Gelateria Milano
• Majesty Jewelers
• Topper’s Rhum Distillery

• Aqua Mania Adventures Sunset Cruise
• Blue Flag Environmental Project
• Interactive Cooking Experience with Divi Little Bay’s Executive Chef Octavio Verheist
• World’s Steepest Zip Line “The Flying Dutchman” at Rainforest Adventures

“The Patriots Cheerleaders truly enjoyed their stay at the Divi Little Bay, with the island of St. Maarten being one of the most beautiful destinations they’ve ever visited. The hospitality at the resort was second to none and we were provided so many unique opportunities, giving the squad a great feel for the island’s culture and all it has to offer,” said the Patriots Cheerleaders’ Director Tracy Sormanti. “The kindness of the locals coupled with the beauty of the ocean and scenery made this a picture-perfect trip.”
