News From The Summit Resort Hotel, St. Maarten
Dear Valued Guest of the Summit Resort Hotel,
The long, slow, low season on St. Maarten continues for another month or so but then, in early November, things begin to pick up and we all start looking forward to high season. Now is the time for repairs and renovations and getting everything ready for the new season. At the Summit, our staff is hard at work making sure everything is just right for your next visit. Plus, we have an anniversary to celebrate! More on that in our next story.
The Summit Resort Hotel turns 40 in November!
They say time flies when you're having fun and being a member of the Summit family is no exception. To some of us, it seems like only yesterday that we discovered a sleepy little island, shared between Holland and France, offering beautiful beaches, world class dining and the peaceful beauty of The Summit Resort Hotel.

Greetings from Georges Honoré!
General Manager Evans gave birth to a son, Georges Honoré on Saturday, March 9th, 2013. Little Georges wants to thank everyone and give a brief update on how he and mommy are doing!
Dear Summit family,
I want to send a personal thank you to everyone who wished my mommy and me well! My mommy read all the cards, letters and emails and spoke very highly of you all. I am excited to meet all of you who waited for my arrival, especially the February/March crew who missed me by just a few days.
These days, I spend most of my time with my mommy. I enjoy walking the grounds of the resort, and my favorite pastime is going down to the beach. I love trying new foods and figuring out what's the best to eat and what to play with! I'm looking forward to meeting those of you who I haven't met yet, and chatting again with those of you who I've met before.
Happy vacation planning! See you soon!
