Eden Rock St Barts sits perched on a large, rocky expanse jutting out into the aquamarine sea from the island’s mainland. Skirting the most popular beach near the island’s capital, St Jean, the Eden Rock Hotel location is as unique as the entire hotel design. Eden Rock St Barts offers guests an exceptional snorkeling experience that takes little more than a few minutes to reach: it flanks a stunning coral reef spanning the seafront of the hotel. This luxurious Relais & Chateaux is privy to some of the most indulgent services on the island, in true form of the all the company’s signature endeavors.
Upon entering Eden Rock St Barts, it can be hard to believe that the lavish hotel was once a private residence that welcomed such famous guests as Greta Garbo but upon further inspection, the fine details throughout the beautiful estate exemplify the exclusivity and comforts of a well-equipped luxury home. Akin to a few of the stunning St Barts villas along the coastline, the Eden Rock Hotel is a dreamy vision by night, alight and sparkling under the moonlit sky with plenty of outdoor spaces to indulge your evening senses. Thirty-two guest houses and suites are offered at this beachfront hotel with key amenities including shopping, the beach, an onsite spa and fitness center, two restaurants, and even an art galley.
