Style & Character
Capella Marigot Bay Resort and Marina is one of the newest luxury resorts in the Caribbean, with a recent multi-million dollar renovation crystallizing it as the place to be seen.
The resort is simply beautiful inside and out, surrounded by luscious green rainforest hills with stunning gardens and sophisticated, luxurious, calming décor throughout, all topped by the gorgeous, expansive views of the Marigot Bay. The resort includes a spa, restaurants, and fitness center – but more later.

The 57 suites and 67 guest rooms include large balconies with breathtaking views of either Marigot Bay or the resort itself. The room design is modern with West Indian influences and elegant. The rooms feature king-size or twin beds, flat-screen TV & DVD players, Espresso machines and tea-making facilities, air-conditioning and plantation-styled ceiling fans, and complimentary wired or wireless Internet access.
Your in-room refreshment center is restocked daily with complimentary non-alcoholic beverages. Many rooms include hot tubs with living areas and fully equipped kitchens. The Penthouse Suites are situated at the top of the resort and offer amazing views, four-poster beds, and beautiful beam ceilings. They are the pinnacle of both luxury and privacy.
Service & Facilities
To ensure your relaxation is at its maximum, the Auriga Spa treatments are a must.

Plus, guests can also enjoy treatments without even leaving the poolside. The resort also has a salon offering a range of beauty and hair treatments and a Fitness Centre, which includes personal training and yoga classes.

Private dining options are also available on your own balcony or in the intimate treehouse setting – the perfect romantic treat. An all-inclusive option is also available to guests.
The personal touch is everything.
