One of the leading luxury hotels in the Caribbean region is back.
The legendary Eden Rock St Barths, set on St Barth’s famous St Jean beach, officially relaunched at the end of last month.
The celebrated hotel, which first debuted in the 1950s, reopened following a two-year renovation and rebuilding project in the wake of Hurricane Irma in 2017.
The remaking of Eden Rock – St Barths has been an incredible adventure and a wonderfully rewarding experience on so many levels,” said Fabrice Moizan, general manager of the Eden Rock. “It really was a team effort and we are immensely grateful to our brilliant group of collaborators and colleagues who worked with us endlessly to reach this milestone. We also thank our shareholders for the fantastic opportunity to rethink and redesign every detail in order to create a brand-new Eden Rock but with the same deep-set values and attention paid to honoring our heritage.”
The revamped property includes Jean-Georges’ Sand Bar, the cocktail-focused Remy Bar, a new Eden Spa and an expanded “Eden Being” boutique, among other changes.
That’s along with a new Eden Rock Beach Bar.
The property also remodeled its five Eden Rock Owners Society houses, two Plantation houses.
The 37-room hotel’s Villa Rock Star now has six ultra-luxe suites, while the hotel has also added two new spa-gym-health centeras, one on the “Rock” and the other within Villa Rockstar itself.
The Eden Rock has also added three new rooms above the Sand Bar.

“The new designs are wonderful to see,” said Eden Rock co-owner Jane Matthews. “We can’t wait to open again to show our guests and friends what we’ve been up to for so very long.”
But most notable change might be the addition of three new rooms, all set right on top of the “Rock.”
“We hope they will love the new designs as much as we do,” says Jane Matthews, “and be delighted with our interpretation of how to combine the heritage of this place from yesterday with the newly designed beginnings for tomorrow.”
It’s one of the most important hotel reopenings of 2019, and a major injection of energy as St Barth, already in the midst of a bustling December, heads into 2020.
It comes as the island will later this winter welcome back another transformed hotel, the revamped Barriere Le Carl Gustaf in Gustavia.
That property is targeting an opening late in the first quarter of 2020.
