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.

Delicious fresh lobster, straight from the sea!

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.

“relaxing hideaway”

From start to finish, this relaxing hideaway was perfect, not only meeting, but exceeding all expectations. Claire is a great host. She put us up in their nicest room which overlooked the sea. The food at the restuarant was incredible. All the employees were warm and engaging and always helpful. We spent a lot of time diving but when we were at the resort we enjoyed it tremendously. I highly recommend this resort. No question it is the nicest on the island.

This is hands down the most welcoming place we have ever stayed. Claire and her staff went out of their way each day to make sure were treated like guests not clientele. The resort is beautiful. It sits at the base of one of the lesser used trails that lead to the top of Mt. Scenery. Although our primary purpose on the island was diving we did take a day to hike to the top of Mt. Scenery (returning on the more frequently used Mt Scenery Steps. On one of our subsequent days we returned to the resort several hours after the rest of our diving group because we stayed in Windwardside and the hiked back to the resort and were greeted by Claire who informed us she had taken note of our late return and was concerned about our well-being. As I said earlier, we were treated as guess not customers. during our entire stay. You certainly will not regret making this your base of operations for any visit to this beautiful friendly island.

The Queen's Gardens Resort and Spa is magical place. The suites are beautiful, very spacious and very clean. We were lucky enough to be in the Royal Suite with a gorgeous view of the town of The Bottom and the ocean. We loved the jacuzzi for relaxing after another perfect hike through Saba. The up hill climate is very nice with the sea breeze acting as a natural air-conditioner. Not only the hotel and its location are outstanding. We also very much enjoyed the personal and first class service. Queen's Garden in addition offers the best restaurant on Saba making breakfast and dinner highlights of the day. Queen's Garden is located up a steep hill above The Bottom. Saba can be easily navigated by Taxi. We however rented a car at Morgan's car rental in Windwardside. We did not regret that as the increased mobility made exploring the island even more convenient.

“Died and gone to heaven!”

My husband and I travel extensively and I can say hands down, this was a spectacular place to stay! Claire and Hidde, the owners are just delightful. They met our every need and any time we turned around, or left and came back to the resort, we always had a staff member to greet us. The spa is wonderful and if I had more time, would have scheduled a whole morning of treatments. There is a hiking trail at the end of the driveway, so if you like to hike, this makes it very convenient. We stayed in the room featured on the website and yes, it looks just like that! Take note, this is a place to relax, not have a lot of action. You need to take a taxi to get anywhere, so put that into your budget. However, my husband and I did not feel the need to go anywhere! Our great thanks to the staff, Duco, Carolyn and Lars. You made our trip special. Claire-you are a superstar and it was a pleasure to meet you.

“Beautiful, Friendly and Luxurious”

Queens Garden is a stunningly beautiful, luxurious and accommodating resort. We stayed for a week and loved everything about it. To start: 1. Booking was a breeze. I emailed the resort and specified some of our room requirement and things we'd like to do while on the island. I received a quick reply from Claire (more on her later!) spelling out a package including room, activities, meals, etc. I had to clarify a couple times because, frankly, it seemed too inexpensive to believe. But Claire confirmed that everything she had written about was included in the price, including transportation. 2. Room: The room was great! It was huge, with a massive sitting area (incredible view) and loft. The bedroom was also nicely sized. And of course the hot tub with the mountain view! Wow!! My only caveat is that there are a lot of stairs needed to get to it, so be forewarned. Then again, it's Saba so if you visit you need to be prepared to climb, no matter where you go or what you do!! 3. Food: This is high end, comparable to anywhere we've stayed in the world. In fact, knowing that Saba is a relatively small place with not a ton of eating options, we decided to eat at the resort restaurant on our first night and see how it went. It went so well that, aside from one night when the restaurant was closed, we ate there every night. It was that good. And importantly, they change the menu each day, so you never need to worry about choosing from the same dinner options. The breakfast and lunch menu was more fixed, but equally good. (Dinner suggestion: Cheese Wheel Pasta!) 4. Service: Starting with Claire, these are just the friendliest, most accommodating group of people I have encountered. It's a small hotel with a small staff, and everyone quickly knows everyone by name. More than that, they know your schedule - when you like to eat, what you're doing that day, when you'll be returning so they can greet you and help with your gear, etc. Truly, a special group of people. 5. Claire: Claire (owner and manager) is amazing. She is seemingly everywhere, all the time. She is warm and funny (I'm not sure she knows this!) and will do anything to ensure your stay is perfect. Saba is a tiny island with few options. But do not let that fool you or misinterpret this review as meaning that Queens Garden is just good by comparison. It is a true luxury experience.
