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 has a museum called: the Saba Museum. I's 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 are 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 products” 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 beverages. 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.

“Great service, comfortable rooms, helped organize diving”

We can't say enough great things about the owner Claire, who helped organize everything from scuba diving, to rides to/from the Windwardside, to dinner, and beyond. Not only was Claire exceptionally cool, funny, and accommodating, she also has staff who provide exceptional service as well. This includes the gin and tonic-maker extraordinaire (and server), Duco, and Frank, the server who was very attentive. When we weren't scuba diving with Saba Divers (we highly recommend them too), we were lounging at the pool, or enjoying the hot tub in our room (a very cool and unique feature of Queen's Gardens). While our room could use some updating, it was very comfortable and clean. We highly recommend that any visit to Saba start and end at Queen's Gardens. Thank you Claire and team for a wonderful stay.

“Gem”

Saba Queen’ Garden & Spa

Still slightly overwhelmed by the short but impressive plane ride, we're promptly taken to the hotel. The taxi ride gives you a quick taste of the island, passing through Hell’s Gate, Windward, the largest settlement, restaurants and bars hub on Saba, and finally, our destination: The Bottom. Hikers will notice, either daunted or excited: it’s all hills. 

Arriving, we are greeted by Cherrie. A warm sincere welcome. She sat us down. Refreshing scented towels, drink. And enquired about what our trip was about. She really took her time, like there were no one else in the place. Gave us lots of info about the hotel, what to do, where to eat, hiking, diving. How to say it? Did The Queen' Gardens have us at hello? You could say that. 

We were then led to our top floor suite, #8. Generous space. More living quarters than room, separate bedroom king bed, jacuzzi (which is amazing coming back from hiking, or diving! . The view from there is another big part if the love at first sight impression. Now that we're back, I find that vista stayed with me. I can appreciate how amazing it was to wake up, have coffe, and then enjoy it still throughout the day, the mesmerizing ocean nestled between Bunker and Great hills, while the red roofed, European looking The Bottom, earning its name, rests down in the middle of that picture. 

Like they say, location, location, location. 

While at the Queens, we did enjoy a few diners on the premises. They were more like culinary experiences rather than simple meals. The restaurant and its chef Nick offer impressive dining. Even lunch was excellent. All of this while sitting out, dining « al fresco », in a gorgeous, romantic atmosphere. 

Of course we walked. Mount Scenery, Paris Hill, The Ladder, are all easily accessible from the resort. Good shoes, walking stick, water, sunscreen; the usual, will be needed. Other trails will require a taxi ride to get to or back from. Some of these places do require a decent physical condition. All will give you a really nice rewarding feeling once done. More importantly, all of them offer a unique Saba 
experience. Wether it's vistas, a challenging climb, splendid vegetation, or historic voyage. For any outings, Claire or Cherrie will give you all the details. 

Diving Saba. Well I'm sure you could enjoy the island without, but... The Unspoiled Queen offers a generous part of her riches underneath the water. Cherrie who is herself an experienced diver will help you set it up, answer most of your questions, easy as pie. The hotel will refer you to Saba divers. There is one other diving outfit. I'm sure they're good. We went with Corey and his wife Gillian, and wow! While the Queens Gardens might very well account for our perfect scenic and comfy topside stay, Saba Divers, are wholly responsible for a truly unforgettable diving experience. 

In Corey and Gil we trust! 

The staff at the Queens will go out of their way. And I'm not just saying that. Harry will serve you breakfast like you're family, but he's just as likely to pick you up in town by chance, seeing you're stranded without a cab. 
Frank, waiting on us. professionnel to the core. Also inquired about my wife who was experiencing a bit of muscle pain. The next day, he brought his own medicine which ended up helping just in time for our next dive. 
Duco, the fast moving passionate gin aficionado seems like he's everywhere in the hotel. Pure efficiency. 
The staff, the place, really work like a well tuned orchestra. 
As such, The maestro deserves our praise. Claire the owner the hotel and Bubba restaurant in town, very finely takes care of everyone. Knowing you by name the second day, dropping us in town when she was heading that way, all in all making our sojourn such an incredible experience. No wonder so many people keep returning. 
Which we might very well end up doing as well. Tx a million for the perfect vacation!

“The best vacation we've ever had!”

My boyfriend and I stayed in Saint Martin for 6 days and decided to travel to Saba Island for a one night stay. We are so glad we made the trip because it was the best vacation we've ever had. The flight was very quick but not for the faint of heart as you land on the worlds shortest runway. It was certainly something we will never forget! Lollipop, the taxi driver, was waiting for us at the airport and took us on a lovely tour of the island before dropping us off at the Queens Garden. We were absolutely blown away by how beautiful Queens Garden was. It reminded us of something out of a romance novel. We arrived at 10 AM and Claire graciously let us check in early and even offered us welcome drinks! The staff took our bags to the room while Claire gave us a tour of the resort. After the tour of the beautiful grounds, we made our way up to the suite. We were blown away at how beautiful the room was - the draw dropping views from the room are indescribable. The windows were open so we could feel the ocean breeze and the Jacuzzi was an amazing surprise. We ate lunch at the restaurant - pan fried red snapper with a mango/avocado salad - it was exactly what I was looking for - local cuisine that was very well executed. The staff took care of us during our 24 hour stay - making us feel like royalty. Claire gave us tips on what trails to go on to get to the top of the mountain and she even had walking sticks and a bird guide for us. Make sure to pack hiking shoes and a back pack - some of the trails are challenging but the 1065 stair climb isn't very difficult. I can't say enough amazing things about this beautiful island. The people are some of the nicest you'll ever meet and everything is clean and properly maintained. We can't wait to come back to the Island and to stay at the Queens Garden- it will forever hold a place in our hearts! PS, i recommend if you get sea sick or have any hesitation about taking a 90 min ferry ride through rough seas, you are better off booking your round trip flights early. We couldn't get a flight back so we took the ferry and it was a very rough ride!

“Absolutely awesome ”

I would like to give a huge, love-filled thank you to Queen's Gardens Resort & Spa Claire Verbeke-Nuyens Hidde Verbeke Duco Van Grieken on the love they have shown me and Michelle McNaught for our work here in Saba. Many hotels claim that they are taking the environment into account but Queens talks the talk and walks the walk. And it’s one of the most beautiful hotels in the Caribbean 💙💙💙

“Great hospitality”

My husband and I enjoyed a week with Claire and her team at Queen's Gardens Resort and Spa. Claire was warm, welcoming and very interested in ensuring her guests had a nice time. The Resort location is excellent - with great views of the surrounding landscape. Our first room had some challenges with the plumbing, but on mentioning this, Claire quickly attempted to address the issue and moved us to another room immediately. Her kind approach made it clear that her goal was to provide a comfortable and relaxing stay. The common dining areas and bar were excellent and many people on the island come to the bar/ restaurant to enjoy dinner and drinks. The pool was not 'dirty', but had far too many dead bugs floating than I was prepared for. I do think that if I had mentioned this, it would have been cleaned, but the way our days worked out, I didn't go back to the pool. I do agree with other reviews that note that the rooms, though spacious with great breezes and beautiful views - are a little run down, with some lack of attention to detail. There are rugs in the main room, and when I accidentally flipped up an edge, I found a large amount of sand/ dirt hiding beneath. The bathrooms are sufficient, but not what I was expecting from a resort. We had a great time and I would stay here again, but with slightly adjusted expectations regarding the room itself. If I were to separately rate Claire and her team - I given then 5 stars without hesitation.
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - Queen's Gardens Resort
Thank you for your kind words and constructive feedback. We are upgrading our rooms one by one as we speak but due to a rough year right after hurricane Irma we are behind on this. Currently in the process of changing the bathrooms and giving the rooms a much needed fresh paint and we are making some changes to the decor. We are fully aware of this and appreciate the comments on this opinion page from you and other travelers. As for the pool, its cleaned twice daily but being as close as we are to the rain forest bugs are hard to prevent flying in the pool. We would love to welcome you back and show you the changes we are working on and have scheduled for the very near future. All the best. It was a pleasure having you as our guests.
