The Sint Maarten Hospitality & Trade Association (SHTA) and the Sint Maarten Timeshare Association (SMTA) have jointly nominated Ms. Edna Evans (Belair Beach Resort) as the first Sint Maarten choice for the “Women in Tourism Caribbean” network.  This was announced by both organizations earlier today.

The Women in Tourism Caribbean network highlights female Caribbean tourism professionals. Every Wednesday one of the Caribbean destinations is allowed to nominate an outstanding woman in this key industry of the region.

Ms. Evans has been director of Belair Beach Resort since 2018. Previously, she was the longtime General Manager of the Summit Resort in Cupecoy. Ms. Evans has been an active member of the SMTA board for over 8 years.

Mrs. Evans represents the SMTA in the national Sint Maarten Tripartite Committee that advises government on labor matters.

Mrs. Evans holds a bachelor’s degree and two master’s degrees, including one in education that she recently completed.

SHTA can nominate two Women in Tourism per year. Do you know an outstanding female hospitality talent or pioneer? Let SHTA know at or call 5471082. Follow, support or join the network at
