PHILIPSBURG, ST. MAARTEN – This fall season, luxury villa living is within reach in Dutch St. Maarten, where the island’s newly launched SXM Villa Vibes campaign brings together a collection of high-end villa accommodations offering travelers enticing pricing and seasonal perks on villa stays.
From pay-per-bedroom options for families or a couple’s romantic respite, to splitting a stay – an affordable way for the ultimate girls’ getaway – villa guests will experience the true magic of the island. Limited-time offers also include free nights and concierge-level services and experiences, like sailing St. Maarten’s high seas.
Travelers can find aggregated information at www.sxmvillavibes.com for an easy one-stop shop with direct links for travelers to book.
