Eden RockFollowing damage sustained during Hurricane Irma, this property will reopen in November 2019 after a complete renovation.
With its breathtaking setting, the iconic Eden Rock exudes French art de vivre in the heart of the Caribbean. This luxurious resort is built on a rocky promontory surrounded by white-sand beaches, turquoise waters, and a coral reef. Eden Rock offers 34 highly individual accommodations located on the rock, dotted along the beach, or set within the lush green gardens. No two of the 34 rooms are alike. Cottages and rooms in small stone houses have colonial decor and garden views. In contrast, the beach houses are utterly modern, with stark and simple designs. Suites come in various sizes, and most have their own pools in a range of geometric shapes. Most popular, especially among guests who return year after year, are the original Rock cottages. All accommodations offer easy access to the hotel’s beach.
The resort is renowned for its endlessly accommodating staff, who seem to delight at challenging requests. Its other claim to fame is its restaurant, which is overseen by the famous chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. For culture, the resort's gallery offers exhibits featuring a range of international artists. A successful artist-in-residence program includes young artists from the New York Academy of Art.

On the Rocks at Eden Rock Hotel
There’s no better spot in the Caribbean to watch the sun set (with a mai tai in hand) than this patio bar, cantilevered over the sea. Don't miss the menu from Jean-Georges Vongerichten either.

Dining on the Rocks
When Michelin-star chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten teamed up with the exclusive Eden Rock hotel last October, he created a menu that features sea scallops topped with ponzu sauce, salt-and-pepper lobster, and other globally inspired dishes. He also revamped the cocktails—don’t miss his ginger margarita.

Every place has a history & Eden Rock is no exception. Dating back to the 1950s, Eden Rock was the first hotel built on St. Barth, before the island was even a travel destination. At the time, Eden Rock was a guesthouse, a sanctuary for those who needed hiding place, a respite for people no matter what their status was, rich, poor, famous, all are welcome and treated as friends. St. Barth without Eden Rock is like an island without its essence. To get the full experience, stay at one of the classic rock suites, as each one is different and has gorgeous views. The best time to go is during the low season, which is summer time in the northern hemisphere; the rates are much lower and it is very likely that you will get an upgrade

Romantic Sunset Drinks at the Eden Rock
The Eden Rock Hotel is a great place to enjoy sunsets with your loved ones. It is the glitziest hotel in St. Barths, but you can have a lovely drink at the bar aptly called On the Rock for an (almost) reasonable price. When dark sets in, the hotel turns on a powerful light projector that lets you see over the nearby surf. The atmosphere is casual chic, with an emphasis on chic. You can also eat there, but it is pricey (and worth it). The menu has been created by famous chef Jean-Georges. Advice: Book a table, dress up, and do arrive before sunset. Trivia: Eden Rock is also the very first hotel that opened its doors in Saint Barthélemy decades ago. Today, it belongs to the Matthews family, a very successful British entrepreneurial family.
