Talented videographer Peter Sagnia is the creative mind behind a series of videos produced in collaboration with Jan Thoelke, publisher of ST-MAARTEN.COM.


YouTube and other video channels are flooded with images of the terrible destruction the island suffered. It was important to show the devastation and to make the world aware that the situation is tough.

Five weeks have passed now since the storm; amazing results have been achieved in the clean up. Many business owners and their staff worked long hours to be able to reopen. Their resilience and williningess to overcome a mountain of problems needs to be rewarded:

This is why ST-MAARTEN.COM decided to create a platform to announce the reopening of businesses after the passing of Hurricane Irma. We need to show to visitors considering a winter vacation in the Caribbean that the spirit of St. Maarten - St. Martin is alive and kicking! We will publish frequent videos with the latest openings AND we will list any reopened and tourism related business as a courtesy in our Directory.
