“An Extraordinarily Relaxing Zen-like Oasis”
Reviewed 10 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

people found this review helpful

We had an absolutely amazing week at Jardin d'Ô. From the moment we arrived our hosts Lydia and Lionel showed us exceptional hospitality, explaining the surrounding area, places to eat, beaches, and other attractions. Then a tour of the compound and our cottage. Champagne and wine awaited us in our cottage. The hot tub was an added bonus. The infinity pool was spectacular--spotlessly clean as were the lounge chairs and tables.

I can't say enough about how relaxing Jardin d'Ô was. I have a high demand, high stress job and this was just the ticket to blissful relaxation. We are not resort types where we have to navigate hundreds of other vacationers and compete for a spot at the pool or beach. The number of guests is strictly limited to a handful of couples so you never feel crowded. Conveniently located near Orient Beach, a short ride to Grand Case which is a foodie's paradise featuring just about any cuisine you could want. A little but further is Marigot, a charming town with extraordinary shopping and restaurants as well (try le Tropicana in Marigot--wow!). And we also spent a day or two in Philipsburg which was invented for shopping--you name it it's there (Cartier, Tiffany, etc.).

I can't think of one thing I would change. It was among the best vacations I have had in a long time.

We've never stayed at a clothing optional resort before but it was like Zen meditation. Even though the resort was full, we rarely had anyone else with us by the amazing pool. Nothing was uncomfortable or awkward, just the opposite. Lydia and Lionel were very welcoming and know a lot of the best spots on the Island. We stayed in the Cottage which was unlike anything we've ever seen! Amazing indoor/outdoor shower and kitchen. The rooms had air conditioning as cold as we needed. The place was immaculately clean and well cared for! Extremely convenient to several beaches and for foodies, close to Grand Case and Marigot!! Not easy to find, luckily we used Waze and it got us very close. The rest was easy to figure out with the directions.

“Fantastic place!”
Reviewed 28 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We spent a couple of days at this mini resort in november whilst visiting Saint Martin. Everything feels and looks brand new and clean. We stayed in the Indigo Suite which was well equipped and offers a secluded patio where we had our breakfast every morning. The clothing optional swimming pool and sun deck is magnificent, with gentle lounge music playing in the background. And when you return from an evening out there is nothing better than slipping into the beautifully lit pool to relax before you go to bed.

The owners (Lydia and Lionel) have gone out of their way to make sure this little piece of paradise meets all your needs. Highly recommended if you are looking for a secluded place to stay while on the island. We hope to return some day!

“Tropical Paradise”
Reviewed 18 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We were searcing for a clothing optional place to stay at our visit to St.Martin,and did find Club Orient worn out dispite its good location near the beach.
Luckely we did find Jardin d'O and its beatiful location.
We were met and showned around the place and our nice studio appartment. A nice sized saltwater pool with sunbeds was located between the 5 different studios.
A calm and relaxing paradise.
We will be back!

“Wonderful Stay At Jardin d'O”
Reviewed 5 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

My wife and I stayed at Jardin d’O for one week and this was our first visit to Saint Martin. We stayed in the Studio Rose which is on the ground level close to the swimming pool. This studio has a nice patio with a Jacuzzi and lounge chairs. The room was clean and has a well-equipped kitchenette, which we used for cooking breakfasts. The property is large and well landscaped with numerous palm trees. We especially enjoyed the large infinity swimming pool and comfortable lounge chairs. It was nice to come home after a day at the beach to relax by the pool and enjoy the peace and quiet of this property. Lionel and Lydia are gracious hosts and made us feel very welcome. The property location is ideal as it is only a five minute drive to the numerous restaurants in Grand Case, Orient Beach, or to the Pinel Island Ferry in Cul-de-Sac. A convenient grocery store and money exchange with an ATM machine are close by. We would definitely return!

“Idyllic Bliss in Naturist Heaven”
Reviewed 29 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

This is my 4th trip to this wonderful island. I've stayed at different places each time. This was by far the best. When I am back in St. Martin, this is where I'm staying. No need to try anywhere else. The place is impeccable, the location is ideal, and you cannot ask for better hosts. Lydia and Lionel will be often naked as we are naked. We never needed to put on any clothes during our whole week, except when we went out. And, on St. Martin, you don't need to wear much. Just a sarong would do for our 5 minute ride to Club Orient, where again no clothes are ever needed, neither at the beach, at the bar, in the restaurant, at the spa, nor even in the grocery store. And, if you're staying a week in Jardin d'O, Lydia and Lionel will pay for your lounges and umbrellas at Club Orient naturist beach. And they do supply you with beach towels.
Jardin d'O itself is in a gated community, very close to a great bakery, restaurants and supermarket. You'll need to rent a small car if you really want to visit the island. Or make a deal with a friendly taxi driver, as we did, since we decided not to drive during this vacation. Inside the property, there are only 5 spacious units, 3 of them with outdoor Jacuzzis. This means a maximum of 10 guests. During our week, we were the only guests. Adam and Eve in the garden did not have an infinity swimming pool, lounges, Jacuzzi, music, ... Most of the time, we did not want to leave the place. We ordered in. Even for a pedicure and a massage, we called Sandra, a delightful professional therapist. She came with her equipment and table, set up in the place of our choice. Then her experienced hands made my vacation: total relaxation and healing. I've had massages in 5 continents. This is one of the best. We're definitely coming back.
On my previous visits, I stayed on the Dutch side and on the French side. I've stayed in hotels and in rentals. I've stayed at the Club Orient Naturist Resort, which I highly recommend. For our next visits to St. Martin, we're staying at Jardin d'O, again and again.

This was our third time staying on the property, the first being with previous owners. We absolutely LOVE the addition of the swimming pool, comfortable lounges and welcoming atmosphere. Lionel and Lydia are exceptional hosts and will cater to your needs. It is extremely peaceful and quiet but also the best location on the French side of the island. I can walk to tennis nearby and it's a 5 minute drive to Orient Beach, Pinel Island Ferry or numerous and delightful French restaurants in Grand Case. Whether you are needing a studio or a roomy house, there is something for everyone here! Counting the days to our return trip!
