Thirty-five years ago, before “green” became a de rigueur byword in hotel design, Maho Bay Camps was established when a clutch of permanent platform tents went up on a jungle hillside overlooking St. John’s secluded Maho Bay. The emphasis was on the area’s staggering beauty, not on resort frills, and the outpost quickly developed a cult following. Today the hippie-chic ethos still prevails, and additional tents have brought the total up to 114. As has been true from the beginning, all the property’s structures are connected by elevated wooden walkways to protect the natural fauna and impact the environment as little as possible. Each tent is furnished with a twin or queen bed, plus a sitting area and primitive “kitchen” complete with ice chest, propane stove, and basic kit of pots and pans. Staples can be purchased at the well-stocked camp store, or grab a table on the open-air main deck and opt instead for the café’s just-caught grilled mahimahi as you watch the ocean gently lap the shore below.
