WHERE TO STAY
Statia doesn't have the type of high-rise mega resorts as some Caribbean destinations now do and what you'll fine here is a refreshing departure from the typical. Most accommodations are family-owned and operated and offer the basics. Some offer pools and dining, while others are more rustic in nature. Check out the list from Statia Tourism or check out an online hotel review site like tripadvisor.com.
