Welcome to Club Fantastico

  • "Great new place to be in the Caraibes"I was there Dec 13-20 this past few weeks. Wish i was there longer, i will be back in 2013. Great reception from Chloe and Thierry. Felt at home or like at friends place from the minute i walked in. Being nude all day around the pool and bar is a "must try" for any nudist wantobe. The views are great, the rooms are very well appointed and the spa overlooking is a daily indulgence i took full avantage of. Thanks again for the wonderfull week wiht you both. Will return again with friends soon. - Nudeluke, Montreal - January 2, 2013
  • "Always wonderful to come home again.."Everytime we step foot in the foyer of Club Fantastico our blood pressure and our clothes drop. This is our 4th or 5th time here and with Chloe and Thierry it gets better and better. They always make our stay with them warm, inviting ...As if this was our second home. Thierry is an excellent cook, and with little prompting or notice will whip you up a meal that is only equalled to the magnificent views you overlook while dining alfresco. We look forward to our trip back to Club F this April 2013 - hoof2it, Baiting Hollow, New York - December 19, 2012
  • "Hope to return soon!!"Chloe and Thierry met us upon arrival with smiling faces that never turned off. They treated us like royalty and bent over backward to insure our stay was the most enjoyable. The resort was VERY clean and the views are spectacular. It is a great location that is close to great restaurants, as well as Orient Beach. We are more than determined to find our way back soon and enjoy all this resort has to offer. Besides, our new friends are expecting us... thanks Chloe and Thierry... miss you guys already!!- gtbuzzworthy, McDonough, Georgia - December 15, 2012
  • "A wonderful escape!"We stayed at Club Fantastico for the first time in Nov. 2012 which was also our first trip to St. Martin. We couldn't have made a better choice not only to visit St. Martin but to stay at Club Fantastico.

    Chloe and Thierry made our stay very enjoyable starting with our first night. Thierry had prepared a wonderful meal with great french wine and it felt like we had known them for many years. We stayed in one of the ocean view rooms which we found to be very clean and with a very comfortable bed.

    Chloe recommended we rent a car and we are so glad we did, it allowed us the freedom to travel to Grand Case for great dining, shopping trips to Phillipsburg (Dutch side), made our visits to Orient Bay much easier and for general sight seeing, highly recommended unless you plan to just stay at the villa which isn't a bad choice either.

    Overall we enjoyed ourselves very much and look forward to our next visit. The only negative was the mesquitos that come out in the early morning hours or after sunset, bug spray is vailable and a necessaity if you plan to be outside during those hours. Next time we hope to be able to stay longer then the 10 days we stayed on this trip, it was tough to say goodbye to our new friends Chloe and Thierry and to St. Martin.

  • "Awesome, relaxing time"Just returned from our first stay at Club Fantastico. Still trying to get back to real life after a week of no worries, no problems, and pure relaxation. Upon arriving we were met by Chloe and Thierry, a bottle of red wine and a plate of fantastic food. Chloe and Thierry were nothing but great. They allowed us to have as much private time as we wished, and when we wanted to converse they were there. Both are very pleasant people who strive to make your stay the best it can be. We had one dinner at Club Fantastico and it was memorable both for the food and the company of all the guests. Everyday we had breakfast and it was delicious as well. The accommodations were more than adequate for us. We only slept in the room and then left for the beach or pool. The bed was extremely comfortable, the room very clean, and the air conditioner worked great. The whole atmosphere of Club Fantastico is extremely relaxing and is the real draw. The pool was very clean and refreshing, so the previously negative reviews are off on that issue. We will return, and only wish we could go back next week instead of next year. - P G, Virginia - November 19, 2012
  • "A romantic time and a new experience"I stayed at Club Fantastico Nov 2012 with my boyfriend. It was our first time in a naturist resort and we researched many options before reserving Club Fantastico. Club Fantastico is high on a hill neighbored by a number of large private villas. At the bottom of the hill (5-10 mins walking) is Orient Bay/Bikini beach. There is a pharmacy and a few hotels, restaurants and shops around the beach area. Club Fantastico is quiet and private without being isolated. Its easy to take a cab into Grand Case or Marigot for dinner, although next time I would probably rent a car from Chloe who can arrange it for you.

    Chloe and Thierry are great hosts. All of the other guests were very nice and the atmosphere was chill, never any gawkers or weirdness. All of the common areas are open air, there is a living room style area with a large screen TV (no tvs in the rooms) and chairs, wifi, a well stocked bar and several dining tables. The back of the house is the pool area with hot tub, bar and four out door tiled showers. The rooms pretty much open into this patio. As Chloe told me on our first interaction most guests experience some level of undress during their stay but you should feel free to wear what you want. At times people were nude, partially dressed or completely dressed.

    I've read all of the trip advisor reviews and was mystified by the dirty pool comment left by a past customer. It was crystal clear every day, no leaves or dirt, I saw Thierry cleaning it several times. I personally swam in it every day. The rooms were clean and the common areas clean. As etiquette suggests all guests would put a towel between themselves and the furniture.

    You can be nude on Orient Bay Beach which is a nice area, where you can rent beach chairs and an umbrella and we borrowed some cups and a bottle of wine to bring with us making it a very pleasant day. Don't miss out on Thierry's cooking. You may request to dine in at Club Fantastico and Thierry will cook for you, the cost is reasonable and better than many of the fancy restaurants in Grand Case and Marigot. One night all of the guests dined together and the last night it was just my boyfriend and I. Breakfast was also great fresh baquettes every day, cheese, ham, coffee, juice, fresh fruit and sometimes croissants or eggs (at request). Chloe and Thierry were very kind to accommodate requests such as stocking a favorite liquor we asked for and popping up with random chocolates in the afternoon.

    I slept well, Club Fantasico is peaceful and romantic, we stayed in an ocean view room which is slightly more money but worthwhile in my opinion. We had a large yellow room, the bathroom and bidet are attached, there was a bath tub, showers are outdoors. Several of the other guests were repeat customers many times over and we agreed we will stay there again next time we are in St. Martin. The feel is less like a hotel and more like you are staying at your friend's awesome villa.

    Room Tip: The ocean view room we stayed in was slightly more money than the others but worth it. - Chapolina - November 18, 2012
  • "Why did we love it so?"It might be the way that Bella, the house dog, came running to the gate to welcome us back from a hard day at the beach. Maybe it was the sugar birds, fluttering down onto the outside bar for their sweet morning treats while we sat with our morning coffee. Or it could have been the hot tub or the open-air showers or the wonderful pool that made us feel we were at a Roman spa. It certainly could be the huge, soft, luxurious beds that awaited us at the end of the day (or earlier). But most likely it was all those, combined with the wonderful care and attention we received from our hosts Chloe and Thierry that made our stay at Club Fantastico such a delight.

    And then there are the other guests. Simply put, you meet the nicest folks naked.

    Club Fantastico sits high on the hill above Orient Bay. It’s a three minute drive down to Orient Village to the nearest boulangerie for your breakfast croissants and the day’s baguettes, still warm from the oven. It’s only 5 minutes to the beach bars on Orient and the beach at Club Orient is only a couple more minutes away. Just as well as we really want to spend as little time as possible with clothes on.

    The Club is fully gated and guests are given their own keys, so access or security is never an issue. If you don’t want to leave the place you don’t have to. There are loungers and floaters aplenty if you feel like a day of doing nothing but lying naked by the pool. The professional-grade kitchen is available if, like us, you like to cook for yourself from time to time. On top of that, Thierry will happily prepare a meal to your requirement for a special occasion. In fact, Thierry does everything happily.

    Being at Club Fantastico doesn’t feel like being at a resort. It feels like sharing a wonderful home with a bunch of good friends you’ve only just met. We visited in August and are counting the days until we go back.

  • "Club Fantastico offers a wonderful experience"We stayed a Fantastico in January 2012 and were a little apprehensive after reading some of the critical reviews. Simply stated, our experience was wonderful and we will return for another stay. The hosts, Chloe and Thiery, could not have done anything more to provide a more pleasant experience. The room, bathroom, and common areas were very clean and comfortable. After windsurfing or swimming in the bay, we swam in the pool eveRy day and it was always clean and crystal clear. Breakfast always was great, and the one dinner we ate at the facility was superb! We met the owner, Tony, and his wife Nancy, and they shared their favorite places on the island and made this vacation unforgettable. I would highly recommend Fantastico to others that want a better alternative to hotel lodging, with Chloe and Thiery as the hosts. A key thing about Fantastico is that it is located about 500 feet above Orient Bay, which offers cooling breezes which keep the insects at bay. The location also provides great panoramic photo ops every morning! - Ken W, Sedalia, Colorado - June 19, 2012
  • "A good three days"It all depends on what your are looking for. I gave it four stars, may wife gave it three. We spent three days there the first week of May. The rooms were nice, no TV which some may care about. The rooms are average size. The bedrooms and bathroom were clean. A lot may depend on who else is there during your stay, you certainly will be visiting with them, because most everything is done around the pool. The breakfast was good, and Chloe and Thierry really went out of their way to do anything they could for you. They know the island well. But the property is showing its age. For St. Martin that is to be expected, but this is a bed and breakfast experience, and not a hotel experience. -travelingtexan69, Houston Texas - June 5, 2012
  • "Club Fantastico, is...!"We have recently returned from nine days at Club Fantastico in St. Martin. The club lived up to its name and then some. It is on Orient Bay located in the Orient Bay Resort, a gated resort community of upscale private homes, condos, apartments, and a handful of boutique resorts. The club is small with only six rooms. It sits high on the hill overlooking Orient Bay and provides premier views of the bay.

    The club is clothes optional, all the time. We found the open-air showers to be an exquisite experience! During the day you can choose to sit poolside or if you want a beach, Club Orient’s beach is available at no cost and is only a five minute drive away. The resort’s village has a number of shops and unique restaurants and is a ten minute walk down the hill or a five minute drive.

    Chloe and Thierry are the hosts here and they bend over backwards to make sure everything is as close to perfect for you as possible. The rooms are air conditioned and wonderfully appointed. There is free wi-fi throughout the club. Thierry is a professional, gourmet chef and there is a professional kitchen at the club. He can suggest and prepare meals for you if you prefer to eat in. The bar is included in the room rate and it is fairly well stocked but they will get whatever it is that you prefer to drink. Breakfast is also included with your room. This is a continental breakfast, but they will create it to your desires.

    Nearby is Grande Case, a charming seaside village with a street full of fine restaurants. We ate at the Fish Pot here and can tell you it rivals It Rains Fishes on Bonaire! There is also a high point overlooking the bay that provides a great spot for a picnic. Further down the road is Marigot where you can spend the day shopping in fine stores and, if you are into local color, on Wednesdays and Saturdays they have a local marketplace. This is the French side of the island where the Euro is the currency, at $1.30 to the Euro you have to be a sharp bargainer but you can get them down to one for one. Philipsburg is the capital of the Dutch side and downtown Philipsburg caters to the cruise ships, so you can imagine the shopping opportunities here. Again, go there ready to bargain. Without traffic and without stopping in Grande Case or Marigot the trip from the resort to Philipsburg is about 45 minutes. You get a clear sense of the hills of the island making this drive (here read hills as an understatement). -Wader42, Allendale - May 2, 2012
