Remote but accessible, Saba is located just a short 15 minute flight from St. Maarten. Saba offers an exceptional range of hiking options though seven eco-systems, a tropical rainforest, volcanic peaks and remote backcountry villages, largely descended from pirates. Saba’s trails present a complex mix of ecological and historical themes that Saba tour guide, “Jungle James”, is happy to illustrate as he guides guests through the island’s hidden treasures.
Considered as one of the world’s best scuba-diving destinations, Saba is home to three professional dive operators and Saba Marine Park with its famous pinnacles and seamounts, schools of tropical fish and Saba’s robust shark population. Colorful, quaint, quiet and uniquely exotic, Saba is a scuba enthusiast’s dream.
Guests of Queen’s Gardens Resort have a chance to explore the island in style. After trekking the island’s array of natural wonders, guests can relax with a treatment at the first and only spa on Saba, the hotel’s Frangipani Spa, soak in their private in-suite Jacuzzi, or sip a signature cocktail by the pool taking in the spectacular views.
The views get only better perched from the “Birds Nest”, a deck situated in a 100-year-old mango tree where guests can arrange a private dinner with the Queen’s Gardens Restaurant. Serving local and international flavors, the restaurant invests in its own organoponic garden, ensuring the freshest local produce and ingredients are used.
