Your Guide to Orient Bay Villas

Located on the northeastern tip of Saint Martin, Orient Bay is celebrated for its mix of stunning landscapes, calm water, and French charm. Orient Bay villas take this combination one step further with sleek, sophisticated offerings that let you enjoy the best of this stylish beach town.

Orient Bay was completely undeveloped before 1985. Since that time, Orient Beach has grown to become the most popular on the island thanks to the bars and restaurants around it, as well as its calm, protected waters. Orient Bay villas propped up around the beach, creating one of the most coveted residential communities on French St Martin.

Today, Orient Bay villas are sought out for their proximity to the beautiful Orient Beach, as well as their proximity to other parts of Saint Martin like Anse Marcel and Grand Case. They are a reflection of how far Orient Bay, and by extension, Saint Martin, has come in satisfying even the most discerning of travelers.

From there, your Rental Escapes villa specialist will happily present you with the best available Orient Bay villas for your group. After, your concierge customizes your trip, including transportation, chef service, boat charters, excursions, and more.
