It was a proud moment when the large ceiling painting of Heleen Cornet was unveiled at Tropics Café and Restaurant on Saturday, March 30. The two by three meters art work consists of six panels which together depict a scene from the Elfin Forest on Mount Scenery.

Going Local on Saba!
Travel has changed a lot over the last decade or so, and one major way in which we are seeing this transition is the newfound emphasis on experiencing new destinations rather than just visiting them.
It seems like every app, destination and traveler is encouraging travelers to “go local.” But how can you really experience travel like a local in a destination you’ve never been to?
Well on Saba this is pretty easy! Here are some tips about Going LOCAL while staying at Juliana’s Hotel.

Updates on CQ
As promised some updates on the CQ project......
Danly came here in October 2018 from Kuwait. He's getting to know the Tropics menu quickly and has already put his mark on our daily specials such as sushi appetizers, Pad Thai dishes and of course he's already roasted a pig in our oven (Can't get more Filipino than that!) Check out our Q&A with Danly below!
CQ property finally a go!
It's finally official! The land has been transferred to J.W. Hotel & Apartments N.V.'s on August 31st 2018!
We started with this process with a bid in February 2015....you can imagine our joy when everything finally got finalized and the deed was ours!
Staff comes and go, some leave the island without notice, some just send you a text that they will be leaving, some you just fire, and some you will truly miss.
