  • Adults and children are welcome at the resort. 
You'll be enchanted by the setting of this resort located on a private peninsula between Little Bay and Great Bay. Surrounded by shimmering blue waters and fronted by a charming beach, this spot is made-to-order for romance. Grab your partner's hand and head to the beach for activities throughout the day. Strap on a mask, fins and snorkel in order to check out life below the water's surface.

Or, for a more relaxing experience, you can visit the spa instead. Flickering candles cast dancing shadows on the wall as you're guided by a therapist through each step of an instructional massage session designed for couples staying at the resort. "The Art of Touch" is just one of the treatments at Indulgence by the Sea, the resort's spa.

Treat your lover to a candlelit dinner at the beachfront restaurant, Toucan's, or choose an outdoor table just a few feet from the water's edge. Try the snapper for dinner, and you won't be disappointed. Candlelight, moonlight and the crashing of the surf make Toucan's a dreamy place for sweethearts.

Whether you stay in one of the beachfront guest rooms or in a hilltop suite, you'll feel privileged to be staying at this resort. St. Maarten, morning coffee and a gorgeous view of Little Bay or Great Bay from the comfort of your private patio or balcony is a great way to start the day.

This island is a perfect choice not only for romance, but also for adventure. Follow the cobblestone path from the shopping promenade up the hill to Fort Amsterdam, built in 1631, to take advantage of the historic and cultural heritage around the resort. On your way back down, stop by the Tijon Parfumerie & Boutique for a class on luxurious fragrances and to create your own scent as a vacation memento.

  • Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks

    Time share owner.

    We were at Divi Little Bay when they basically closed the island and the government wanted all non-citizens out due to the coronaviris. Divi management and staff went beyond the call of duty by posting closings on the island and available flights to the states. The property was in great condition. The food at the restaurant was excellent. We had a great time in spite of the unusual circumstances.

    DIVI Little Bay

    Our stay was cut short by the Corona virus, but the 2 nights at Divi Little Bay resort was beautiful. Loved our accommodations and our beautiful resort! The view of the ocean from our balcony was breathtaking!

    Perfect Getaway Resort

    When the Pandemic passes and travel is once again possible, enjoy the beauty, outstanding service, and relaxation offered at Divi Little Bay. My husband and I have been traveling to St. Maarten yearly for a very long time (even shortly after Hurricane Irma). On average we stay 3 weeks. We were looking for a change of Resort and this year decided to try Divi Little Bay. We were so glad we did as we love the resort and will be returning next year and many years to come. Several employees we knew from other resorts now work there and we felt at home from day one. We stayed in a Casita (unit 31) overlooking the 3 tiered pureocean pool with a fabulous view of the ocean. The unit had a comfortable porch, open kitchen-dining-living room area, a bedroom with a king size bed, a spacious bathroom and laundry room. Our unit was steps from the beautiful beach, restaurants and main pool. My husband has knee issues and difficulty walking longer distances. The location of the Casitas (as well as units right along the beach) are perfect as we didn't need to rely on a golf cart pick-up to get around the resort. The units located along the hill have nice views but more walking is involved and would be a bit more difficult for those with mobility issues. The units on the hill have either ocean or lagoon views. A unit facing Great Bay has a rather dark view at night. Facing little bay (the ocean) in our opinion is a better view day and night. The restaurants were all great and were varied to fit what you might be in the mood for. Pureocean serves a buffet breakfast and dinner (The lobster special is outstanding), Gizmos is a beachside grill, Seabreeze and Pureocean pool and bar are great for sandwiches, salads, etc. and drinks, Pureroc serves food on a lava rock and The Shack is a great grab and go eatery (bbq, mac & cheese, etc). There is also a little cafe for coffee, ice cream, desserts,etc. There is an adult pool and a small pool next to Seabreeze Restaurant but the main three tier pool is where we spent most of our time. Because of the spacious pool area, there are plenty of lounge chairs and space to relax along with a swim up bar and great pool bar staff (James was outstanding!) Divi is close to Philipsburg for shopping, etc and overall is in a great location!

    Lovely time, too short, great staff

    We had a beautiful room with a gorgeous view and were able to really escape at least for a few days -- our trip cut short because of COVID-19. We would definitely return, and we are especially grateful for Alex, whose kindness and advice when we thought we might not get home (airline issues) was much appreciated. Also, we had a private tour -- he was genuinely excited to show us around, and we enjoyed ourselves. And appreciated his taxi service to the airport as well. Even as the place was clearing out, the staff was super helpful and positive. I guess if they can survive Hurricane Irma, they can survive the pandemic.

    The Pride of St. Maaren

    My wife and I first visited The Divi in 1988 and have been returning every year since. The management and the staff go out of the way to make your stay there as pleasurable as possible. When Irma hurricane hit it hit hard and since then they have come back with excellent improvements and great updates to there systems. The Dutch side of the island are very friendly and hard working people. If you want great food and excellent fun at the beaches stop at the Divi St. Maarten.
