The Emerald at Maho is located near AquaMarina, BlueMarine and Porto Maho and adjacent to Maho Village, the number one hotspot of St. Maarten with restaurants and duty-free shopping, and a five minute drive from the American University of the Caribbean (AUC).


Situated near Princess Juliana International Airport, between Simpson Bay Lagoon and the Caribbean Sea on the Dutch side of the island of St. Maarten, Maho Village is a “destination within a destination” that has truly redefined entertainment, dining, shopping and gaming in a vibrant resort atmosphere. Touted as the epicenter of the island, Maho Village has many duty-free offerings, two world-class spas and a variety of international dining options, casual or fine, including Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Italian, and French restaurants, bars, cafes and lounges to suit every palate and mood.

Steps away from Maho Village is the white sandy Maho Beach with crystal clear water and the idyllic location for plane spotting. Voted on TripAdvisor as the number three spot in the world among the 10 unique beaches you need to see to believe.

AUC Medicine School

The American University of the Caribbean (AUC) in Cupecoy offers medical students a modernized learning environment in the Caribbean area. AUC was founded in 1978 by the Tien family then became part of the DeVry family of institutions in 2011 for $300 million. In 2013-2014, the University went through a $30 million renovation and expansion, and today, has a capacity of more than 1,000 students. This has brought unparalleled economic growth and stability to the Cupecoy, Maho and Beacon Hill areas, however, the growing number of students increases the demand for housing.

The Emerald at Maho, which will offer residents complimentary shuttle service, is a five-minute drive to and from AUC.
