Sun, sea, romance and luxury in abundance on Saba

Paradise on earth does exist and it’s called Hampshire Hotel – Queen’s Gardens Resort. You’ll find this four-star hotel on the Antillean island of Saba, the smallest inhabited island of the Netherlands. The hotel’s location is unique: in the hills, 400 metres high, and surrounded by sub-tropical flora and fauna. As the hotel is so high up, you have beautiful views across the capital city, The Bottom, and the Caribbean Sea. 

Sun, sea, beach and romance, those are the main ingredients of a holiday on Saba. The luxury Hampshire Hotel – Queen’s Gardens Resort has more than twelve spaciously laid-out suites, a swimming pool with outside bar and a fantastic restaurant. According to those in the know, Saba is one of the most beautiful areas in the world for diving. So if you love diving, you simply have to pull on your wetsuit and marvel at the underwater world. If you don’t dive, you can snorkel instead in crystal clear water in the abundance of beautiful coral reefs.

Fantastic places for diving and snorkelling

What shall we do today: diving, snorkelling, lounging, swimming or something else? Here are a few tips to help you with this luxurious problem:

Art and culture
Saba does have a museum: the Saba Museum. It is located in a nineteenth-century captain’s house and gives you a good impression of the island’s history. The collection comprises authentic chairs, engravings, paintings and lace. In the English Quarter there are characteristic, brightly coloured Sabanese cottages. This village centre is where the first English colonists established themselves.

Diving and snorkelling
The most popular diving location is the Saba National Marine Park with more than 36 unique diving areas. Each diving area has its own special underwater world that you can discover, from fairy-tale like coral reefs and historic wrecks to volcanic lava streams. As well as different types of coral such as fire coral, stony coral and brain coral there are also a huge amount of fish types, including the small-spotted dogfish, the tiger grouper and the parrotfish. For snorkellers, Well’s Bay is the place to be!

Nature
The untouched rain forest on Saba is breathtakingly beautiful. You can take fantastic walks through the Saba National Park, an area of some 43 hectares. Mount Scenery is the highest mountain in the Kingdom of the Netherlands at some 887 metres high and the largest place of interest on the island. You can reach the top and enjoy stunning panoramic views via the Mount Scenery Trail, stairs with 1064 steps.

Relaxation
In Hampshire Hotel – Queen’s Gardens Resort you can truly relax by the swimming pool with its sun veranda and outdoor bar. You can also have relaxing private yoga lessons and massages.

Delicious fresh lobster, straight from the sea!

Queen's Gardens Restaurant
The term “local produce” has a different connotation in this restaurant than in a restaurant in the Netherlands. Because here, food caught fresher than fresh from the sea is of course an entirely different experience. Prepare yourself, because all the dishes are absolutely heavenly. Would you like fresh lobster or a perfect fish salad? The culinary feast starts here early in the morning with a fantastic à la carte breakfast that leaves nothing to be desired. From scrambled eggs to French toast: everything is available. For lunch and dinner you can also settle down here to enjoy the delicious food, everything fresh and home-made.

Ocean Bar/Lounge
Of course, there’s nothing better than drinking cocktails with a view of the Caribbean Sea and your loved one. The Ocean Bar/Lounge is surrounded by beautiful mango trees of more than a hundred years old. It has fantastic bar stools and comfortable lounge sofas. You can order cocktails, wine, fresh fruit juice, snacks and much more delicious food and drink. You can also enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner here. The bar/lounge is open from 9.00 am and closes at the same time as the restaurant.

“Unforgettable!”

Getting to Saba may be a little extra effort but is 100% worth it, especially if you stay at Queen's Garden. The hotel is perched on a steep hillside surrounded by trees and vines and huge palms. Very Robinson Crusoe. The views are world class - I can't imagine a more picturesque location, anywhere. We had a superior room and our bedroom had beautiful ocean views. The room was tastefully decorated and comfortable. Jacuzzi in the room was a nice addition. At night the tree frogs and birds came alive - I loved the sound and missed it when we left. What really makes Queens Garden standout was the service. The hotel feels very small and intimate, we only saw a few other groups while we were there which we loved - so quiet. Claire and the waitstaff could not have been more helpful, it felt at times like they were there just for us. Overall - highly recommended. We'd love to come back.

“hidden treasure”

Queens garden is a small boutique hotel. It consist of only 12 apartments each with a separate living room and a sleeping room. The rooms as well as the dining area are very nicely and tasteful decorated. The hotel is surrounded by a beautiful garden, has a great pool and a great spa. The views over the mountains and the sea are spectacular. The staff is very professional, friendly and helpful. The food is great. The place to be at Saba!!!

“Great resort for unwinding”

Amazing resort. I had been corresponding with Claire at the resort for months arranging the schedules for ferries and days, what to do etc. She was always kind and helpful. We ferried over mid-week from SXM. The ride was NOT as bad as some people make it. 90- minutes in decent seas is not too much for this gem. Resort was totally different than I imagined. This resort is newer and bigger than I thought. Rooms are huge, well maintained, and well decorated. The rooms with the Jacuzzi are great, especially come sunset! There is no need for AC because of the breezes. Windows open 24x7. The pool is nice and the biggest on the island. Overall, the resort is like being in a tree house. Quiet is an understatement here. By 10 pm all seem to be asleep- except Lars! Lars is one of the great employees there. Lars, Emma, Duco, and Claire see to it you are happy and feel like the only people there. Very hardworking people. No need to tell them room to charge stuff to- they know! Anything you wanted was taken care of quickly.I have not seen such good service recently! They were also helpful telling us where to hike and the easier trails. Do hike the trails! Food was top notch. From apps to dessert, all was good. Drinks were really good, and served quickly. The spa is great- get the couples massage (we did the 50 minutes, but will do longer next time). Overall, the island is very quiet and that is the highlight. You can relax and unplug for a few days. The beds are really comfortable and I have not slept so much in many years. Great resort for couples (there were families as well!). You felt like the only people there, though the place was quite full. Great service. A truly special trip. Will definitely be back this year, and will scuba dive next time.

“An overnight at the Queen's Garden Resort”

My wife, daughters and I were supposed to be in London for the week, but were able to change to St. Maarten due to the terrorist attack in Belgium. Saba was on our bucket list so we booked a night at the Queen's Garden Resort. We decided to fly over on WinAir and take the ferry back on the Edge (two separate reviews). We arrived and the hotel had arranged for Billy to pick us up at the airport in his minivan taxi. Landing on the worlds shortest runway was awesome, but... Anyway, after a 35 min ride to the hotel, we were greeted by Karalina with cool towels and punch. She gave us a tour of the resort because Claire (the owner) was checking in the couple we shared the taxi with. It was 11am and obviously our room wasn't ready, so we sat around the bar area and had some sodas. By 1130 our room was ready...holy cow! We got to our room (suite 8 w/ loft) and it was amazing! We were with our 16 and 11 year old daughters. At noon, we went to the restaurant and had lunch. Lars waited on us and treated us well. After lunch, I was picked up and went diving with SeaSaba for the afternoon, while the girls stayed at the resort. I had a great dive and when I got back the ladies were at the pool. We all got together and had snacks and drinks with Duco and Lars at the bar. The bar is stocked with 25 different gins and if you love G&Ts, this is your place. Simon, from Chez Bubba, was enjoying a day off and drank with us for a bit. Snacks were very "American" and we all enjoyed them. I had several G&Ts and my wife a few drinks, to include a Saban Sunset. We cleaned up for dinner and ate at the restaurant under the lights. Once again we enjoyed Lars's company. Dinner was fun! We all retired to bed about ten o'clock, but my wife and 16 year old had gotten sick. The night was rough for them. The next morning my 11 year old and I went to breakfast and met Emma and she asked where my wife and older daughter were (it was that kind of place). I told her they were sick and had been up all night and Emma went and told Clair, the owner. Claire knew we had a 330pm departure on the ferry back to St Maarten. Even though checkout was 11am, Claire graciously let us stay in the room until it was time to go. I am a Ritz Carlton Rewards Platinum Member and can say the Queen's Garden Resort is a 5 star resort. The grounds are stellar and the service impeccable. If you go to Saba, there is no other place to stay! Say hello to the gang at the Queen's Garden Resort.

“Beautiful, Peaceful Getaway”

While planning a trip to St. Martin, we decided to visit Saba for three nights. We wanted a quiet, relaxing resort. That's exactly what we found. Here, you are surrounded by lush mountain scenery, in a natural and comfortable environment. From the moment our taxi pulled up, Claire and her staff welcomed us with a cool drink and towel. From that point, we were treated like welcome guests for our entire stay. Everything seemed to be geared for our comfort. The restaurant and bar area were particularly nice and we spent a good time there with some of the other guests. If you drink, make sure to sample some of Lars' various gin concoctions. Lars, Emma, and all the other staff, thanks! The hotel is nestled on the side of a steep mountain, right on one of the island's major hiking trails. This trail is rugged and moderately difficult, but if you are up for it, the hiking is very nice. It wasn't too hot, and there were surprisingly few bugs. Our room did not have either window screens or a/c, something you may want to consider if you are very sensitive to such things. We never had a fly or anything else in the room though. The resort is in walking distance to the island capital (The Bottom), but there isn't really much to do there, and it's very steep walking back. You need a taxi to go anywhere else, though a trip to the Windwardside is worth it, as things are a little more active there. But with an entire island population of only 2,000 (including the medical school), expect peace and quiet to dominate the experience. If you are looking for a relaxing, somewhat pampered holiday with limited hustle and bustle, the Queen's Garden may be your beautiful, peaceful getaway.
