St. Barths | Eden Rock
- DETAILS, DETAILS -
TYPE: Boutique beach hotel.
ROOMS: Rooms, suites, and houses are all individual works of art, each decorated in a unique style. The decor is diverse, ranging from contemporary to beachy to classic Hollywood. There's truly an accommodation to suit every personality and preference. My diamond-shaped suite, the James, sat right at the water's edge, and featured its own pool and deck. The Rock Suites are my favorite, set right on the water!
RESTAURANT: Eden Rock has two restaurants, the casual Sand Bar, and the chic On the Rocks. Both concepts of executive chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, the Sand Bar is the perfect place for breakfast and lunch, featuring fresh local fish, herbs from Eden Rock's own greenhouses, and wood-fired whole wheat pizza. For dinner, On the Rocks serves Vongerichten's favorite globally-inspired dishes, alongside an organically-sourced wine list and amazing views from the top of the rock.
BAR: There is drink service right on the beach, a casual beach bar at The Sand Bar, and then a more upscale cocktail bar at On The Rocks with an incredible cocktail menu.
VIBE: Very sexy, French chic.
POOL/GYM: Located at the foot of the rock, the hotel's gym offers a full range of cardio and weight equipment. There's no main pool on the property, but many of the suites have their own. With the beautiful beach so close, you're not likely to miss it.
SPA: No spa facilities, but massages and other body treatments can be done in-room or on the beach.
KIDS: There were a few older children on property, but this isn't necessarily the most child-friendly spot.
LOCATION: Just a few miles off Antigua, accessible only by boat, after flying into the island's international airport (ANU).
