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!

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.

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.

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.

“Peaceful relaxation, from a hot tub with a view from the clouds!”

Our most relaxing vacation to date! If you're looking for a trip to unwind, unplug and be pampered, we highly recommend going to Saba and staying at Queens Gardens resort. Most rooms have an in-room hot tub with view of the ocean or the rainforest. Like others, tempted not to post about the hotel on Tripadvisor lest it be too booked up the next time we come! The staff at Queens Garden are among its strongest assets. They truly make it a 5-star luxury personal experience. Clare leaves no detail unattended, and makes you feel welcome from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. Duco is a master of mixology. His easy conversation and creative gin and tonic concoctions made for enjoyable afternoons in the resort lounge bar overlooking the ocean. Timo, Tatyana, Harry were all very friendly and helpful. The dinners were all excellent and high-end dining with the Queens Garden restaurant ranked among the top of the Caribbean. A different menu every night. We chose the 'Culinary Package', which included dinners and breakfast. We dined at the resort all nights apart from one night during the week of our stay. Fun to do a mini cooking class with the chef Johann who is clearly passionate about cooking. We went into town (Windwardside or The Bottom) for more casual lunch most days after a morning of scuba diving or hiking. As others mentioned: It is luxury but be forewarned that the rain shower style water pressure is light, you are not to flush toilet-paper down toilets (instead in little trashcans), and bring earplugs if the sound of roosters at dawn would disturb you (but then you don't hear the tree frogs singing you to sleep). Saba island itself is a little piece of heaven --- peace, relaxation, hiking and scuba diving during our stay. Very different than more touristy Sint Maarten . If you need your fix of white sandy beaches, we suggest getting it in SXM either before or after you take a Winair flight to Saba.

“Luxury in Paradise”

I had the room you see on the website with an in room hot tub overlooking The Bottom town and harbor area. This hotel is so beautiful, comfortable, and immaculate. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Great hiking starting just across the road. I loved every minute of this trip.

“Piece of heaven on Earth”

I have been meaning to write this review forever, so here goes. I LOVED Queen's Garden Resort and we really hope to return to this place soon. We are not fans of large resorts, especially when we are on a scuba diving trip. We picked QG because of the diver friendly operations and proximity to the docks. Claire and her husband Hidde run the place and immediately we became friends. The wait staff Johan and Duco really went above and beyond to make our stay special. And Johan's cooking was out of this world. He made us one of those dinners in the Bird's Nest, a table in a mango tree, that we will remember for the rest of our lives! Duco is an excellent bartender and also is a hoot to chat with. The grounds are steep and beautiful with only 12 rooms available. We arrived with only one other couple there so it felt like our own private resort. The diving operation picks you up each morning and take you down to the dock for excellent scuba diving. This island is really only for diving and hiking as there are no beaches, so we spent most of our time by the pool and at the bar. The rooms were comfortable and had spectacular views of the mountains, forest and ocean. I felt like I was living on Jurassic Park because of how lush the environment was. The beds were comfortable and clean and I particularly enjoyed the plunge pool after a long day of diving. We will return here one day and hang out with our new family at Queen's Garden. -October 2015

“Fit for a Queen”

Still a special place left in the world where there is a location with beauty, breezes and no mosquitos! Leave the windows open all the time and enjoy the sun ,stars , and breezes . The hotel has a staff to die for. Rooms are well appointed. Views of the sleepy island are the best. Just relax, easy to say hard to do, except here!

“Exceeding Expectations”

I was fortunate enough to celebrate my 30th birthday at Queen's Garden and it was by far the best birthday I've ever had in my life. Saba was a destination that was completely unheard of and foreign, but I'm so glad I found my way there. My husband and I stayed in the Superior suite--very large space, great view and the private jacuzzi is perfect after a long day of hiking and the bed sleeps like a dream. Claire is PHENOMENAL--just all around, she made my stay and birthday absolutely magical. I'm extremely picky about food and gambled with the culinary package; every evening dinner was a surprise and every dinner was better than the night before. I mean, my husband and I cleaned our plates--the food is AMAZING. I travel a lot domestically for work and it's so rare that I'm ever impressed, so you can imagine my surprise venturing to this tiny island and having my foodie expectations exceeded. Duco (spirits) and Timo (wine) are masters of gastronomy which made each meal even more enjoyable. I have the highest level of respect and admiration for both of them and their expertise. Tatjana made sure each day started with a smile, fantastic breakfast and helped us to route adventures for each day. I was reluctant to write a review because I'd like to keep QG all to myself, but the 30 year old me is working on being less selfish LOL. I hated to leave, but look forward to visiting annually!!
