La Palana (“Ocean” in Carib) is nestled in a quiet Dawn Beach residential area on the windward side of the island and requires only a ten minute walk to the beach. We are a family-friendly B&B where you can read a book on the terrace, have a nap in the hammocks swinging from the coconut trees, bask in the sun or just find a shady spot in the garden to enjoy some cooling sea breeze. Whatever pleasure St. Marten holds for you, La Palana is a perfect getaway.
We have an ocean view towards St. Barth’s but our main focus is our lush organic gardens which provide serenity and beauty as well as many edibles ripened by the warm Caribbean sun. Your hosts are avid gardeners and also trained chefs. We prepare daily a sumptuous breakfast, something new for every day of your stay. When possible we use produce from our organic gardens and always have something in our harvest basket. We try to be green here, watering our gardens with rain water we collect and solar heat our hot water.
La Palana is a spacious one-bedroom suite with full kitchen and bathroom. It is perfect for couples alone or with small children. The suite is newly-built in 2013. We provide daily housekeeping service, beach towels and there is 24-hour security. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves and wake up to gentle birdsong. Plan your day as the sun begins to warm the air and the gardens awake with you. We look forward to welcoming you to St. Maarten and La Palana. Please email us with any requests, concerns or questions. We are most happy to help.
