It first opened in back in the 1970s, at the time a pioneer in the still uncharted world of eco tourism.
Now, well, it’s precisely what many travelers are looking for.
And now, five years after Hurricane Irma, the legendary Concordia Eco Resort is back in the Virgin Islands National Park.
The resort a mix of studio units and tented units, has some of the most spectacular views in the US Virgin Islands, perched on a hillside between Salt Pond Beach and Drunk Bay.
For decades, it was a haven for those who wanted to enjoy the natural beauty of one of the region’s most pristine national parks.
While the resort’s transformation is ongoing, Concordia has already relaunched 17 tents and eight studio units, all “ready and improved,” according to a statement from the property.
The resort has also relaunched its pool, gift shop and front office, with the restaurant ready to open “very very soon.”
“Concordia is back,” the resort said in a statement.
This year, the property plans to rebuild the remaining seven tented units and finishing suites near the pool.
It’s another boost for St John, which has seen sizzling tourism numbers (particularly in its villa accommodations) since the onset of the pandemic in particular, with travelers drawn to the island’s safety, seclusion and sanctuary.
That’s along with the launch of a new private island just off the coast of St John, Lovango Resort.+ Beach Club, which is launching its accommodations in 2022.
