Health, Beauty and Wellness on St. Maarten – St-Martin
St. Maarten’s luxury lifestyle wouldn’t be complete with a good selection of sophisticated spas and beauty salons.
Miguel’s Salon & Spa is located at the Atrium Beach Resort. Miguel has a loyal following among ladies residing on island and repeat visitors. Jon is the force behind the spa, with two qualified cosmeticians to assist him.
Xperts Hair Salon is another fine choice: Owner Eyup even produces his own line of organic beauty products!
Pharmacies on island follow the rules of the European Community, which are somewhat stricter than in the US.
Medications are only available in pharmacies and shopping there is not done ‘super market’ style, but the pharmacist has to hand the requested product over the counter – even if it is not an item restricted to prescription.
The good news is that all pharmaceutical products are readily available, with sometimes slightly different brand names for the respective French or Dutch market, but nevertheless the same content.
Many medications are available on the Dutch side at much lower prices than in the US and it might be worth stocking up on St. Maarten. It is not necessary to bring a long-term supply of any prescription drug to the island. We found the prices for any pharmaceutical product on the French side to be dramatically higher – please compare yourself.
Orange Grove Pharmacy has specialized in the needs of an international clientèle, even offering 24-hour delivery service to any location on island or the cruise ship port.
Simpson Bay Pharmacy is located next to the island’s major marinas and fully stocked to accommodate bulk purchases from visiting yachts.
