Its pool gazes out to the mountains of St. Martin while sparkling in a million shades of blue. Its golf course is one of the world's best.

The resort is known for its exquisite dining. Tokyo Bay, C-Level and D Richards are all dining favorites...

NEW Menu Favorites at Taverna

A tapas eatery with Mediterranean flair, Taverna strikes a magical note come night time. Palm trees sway over ahead, the tradewinds blow through keeping you cool...

Lit up with twinkling lights, the restaurant glows!

The best way to start an evening at Taverna is with a margarita! Taverna's margarita goes down as one of our favorites of all time...

Their new Chef, Chef Derani Gumbs will have your mouthwatering with his flavorful new dishes.

We recommend starting with two excellent appetizers...

Hummus and Toastettes and a Trio of Tzatziki! The tzatziki is especially noteworthy. It is laced with smoked red peppers, which lend a burst of richness to each bite.

When it comes to mains, the Souvlaki Mahi Mahi is juicy and tender. For best results, drizzle each chunk of mahi with grilled lemon and don't forget to dip it in the refreshing tzatziki!

To end the night with something sweet, try Chef's crispy, cinnamony churros...

After such a satisfying meal, there's nothing better to do than to sit back, relax and enjoy the picturesque view.

Life is good at Taverna!

Taverna is staying open all season long.
