Hurricane Irma: Local Information Resources For St. Maarten Updates

Festiva’s Atrium Resort in St. Maarten suffered damage from hurricane Irma in early September, and the island is still slowly recovering from the intensely damaging storm. Here’s a brief compilation of local resources that are reporting updates on the repairs to the island. Atrium owners will have a letter mailed to them in the first week of November with more comprehensive news and updates about damage and repairs to the resort itself and information for owners whose usage has been impacted by the storm and its aftermath.

While we are doing our best to get the resort back up and running, we are also doing what we can to help those throughout the island, many of whom are crucial to the tourism industry there. To that end, we are taking donations through the Festiva Charitable Fund to help those living in St. Maarten and the British Virgin Islands recover and rebuild their lives. Donating is easy.
