EXCITING NEW OPENINGS ON ST. THOMAS AND ST. MAARTEN IN LATE 2019 AND EARLY 2020
October 6, 2019 – New York, NY – After a decade of successfully operating its flagship in Montauk, Navy Beach, a seaside gem beloved by those “in the know” in the Hamptons and beyond, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Island Global Yachting Ltd. to expand into IGY’s luxury Caribbean superyacht destinations at Yacht Haven Grande St. Thomas and Yacht Club at Isle de Sol St. Maarten.
Navy Beach St. Thomas will open in December 2019 with prime waterfront positioning at the sprawling Yacht Haven Grande and will feature a delightful mix of fully covered and sun-dappled outdoor seating for more than 100 guests, a comfortable outdoor lounge and 20-seat bar, all with unobstructed views of the surrounding yachts and Charlotte Amalie Harbor, which serves an impressive collection of the world’s finest megayachts as well as an array of sailing, sport fishing and other pleasure crafts. The bright, open-air nautically inspired space spills out onto Yacht Haven Grande’s prized “canon lawn,” making it the perfect venue for live music performances, private events and weddings.
The opening of Navy Beach St. Thomas will be followed by two new sister concepts in neighboring venues along the waterfront promenade at Yacht Haven Grande: ISLA Cantina, a vibrant Mexican eatery opening late 2019 with an indoor-outdoor bar and overwater dining patio splashed with an eclectic mix of colors, fabrics and Mexican-inspired art to enhance the lively and communal atmosphere; and Sylvette, a French-Mediterranean neighborhood bistro opening early 2020 with more neutral hues, natural textures and vintage photos gracing the walls of the intimate indoor dining room and covered patio. Highlights from the menu at ISLA include Tacos al Pastor, Spicy Tuna Tostada, Mexican Street Corn, and Peanut Butter Stuffed Jalapeños; while the stand-outs at Sylvette are sure to include the Pan con Tomate, Swordfish Carpaccio, Charcuterie Board, and Red Snapper Panzanella. Once all three new venues are open, Navy Beach will operate almost 10,000 square feet of deliciousness at Yacht Haven Grande, plus onsite catering for events and deliveries to the surrounding marina and yachts.
Just as the Navy Beach lifestyle has come to epitomize stylish seaside dining with surreal sunsets and a joyful sense of celebration woven throughout the experience, Navy Beach St. Maarten will raise the bar even further as the brand’s new flagship when it opens in early 2020 in Simpson Bay at the Yacht Club at Isle de Sol (home to 40 megayacht berths). Following a multi-million dollar redesign of this exclusive lagoon-front facility, Navy Beach St. Maarten will boast a variety of enticing indoor-outdoor elements and will be able to comfortably host events for up to 250 people in this sprawling two-story venue that includes an intimate water-view dining area with cozy banquette seating, a 20-seat horseshoe-shaped teak bar, a gaming area, and a handful of coveted daybeds facing the expansive central swimming pool with surrounding tropically landscaped patio and lounge seating. To take it a coveted step further, the über-sexy Sky Deck overlooking the marina and ongoing “yacht show” is like an elevated island in and of itself, ideal for smaller gatherings (up to 75 people) and exclusive affairs. The Sky Deck is outfitted with a full bar, seating and events space with unobstructed views of the surrounding yachts, waterfront and offers a perfect perch to watch the sunsets that are have become synonymous with Navy Beach.
