Oyster Pond Road intersection gets facelift

POSTED: 05/2/12 11:42 AM

OYSTER POND, St. Maarten- A recently designed border monument was unveiled on Wednesday by the management, staff and several guests of Oyster Bay Beach Resort, along with the home owners of the Oyster Pond Estates. The monument, which took about three months to complete, has been erected at the junction of Oyster Pond Road “to help guide the resort’s guests at this critical intersection as well as to discourage unsightly homemade sign proliferation.” The resort’s General Manager Ricardo Perez said that “the sign will make a very helpful directional reference for instructions that are given to visitors that are unfamiliar with the area and ensure they reach the community at Oyster Pond rather than make an unscheduled visit to the French side.”

During the unveiling he also thanked land owner, Leslie Martina, owner of The Big Fish Restaurant, for making the area available.  The Oyster Pond Estates Foundation was also lauded for its support in allowing the resort to beautify the area with a prominent and distinctive marker for the Oyster Pond community.

The sign was designed by architect Joseph Sistler of Joseph Allan & Company, who has overseen the design of much of the expansion and renovation occurring at the resort over the last few years.

Owned by Pearl Development N.V, Oyster Bay Beach Resort is a 187 room mixed-use resort with two on- site restaurants; Infinity and Beau Beau’s, a full service spa, gym and grocery store. Also in the gated community are the Lighthouse and Spinnaker; whole ownership communities.

The Resort is located on a peninsula on the Eastern side of St. Maarten, along the Dutch side of the French Border.  It is bounded on one side by the Atlantic Ocean, with stunning views of St. Barth’s across the channel and on the other sides by Oyster Pond and Dawn Beach.

As a member of the Interval International Exchange System, it enjoys a Premier Rating, the organization’s highest designation.

The resort was recently named in a poll conducted by Travel +Leisure magazine in the “Top Five of Caribbean Resorts for Value”. The Resort and Sistler also received the prestigious “Silver ARDA Award for Architecture” for the newly completed Lighthouse condominiums and Mainsail Pavilion.

The sign’s commissioning, the resort said, serves to reaffirm its commitment to the community and the nation.
