The St. Eustatius Tourism Development Foundation in collaboration with its stakeholders is proud to introduce to the residents of Statia, our “STAYCATION PROMOTION”.  This initiative is an attempt to stimulate the tourism industry and assist the hotels economically, but it also presents the opportunity for locals to live like tourists and enjoy the facilities and amenities that we offer to guests on our island. Through this initiative, we aim to encourage local tourism and to create an appreciation and understanding of our tourism product amongst our residents.

The Staycation offer is open only to residents of Statia and proof of residence on the island must be presented at the time reservations are made in order to receive a voucher.
