The Rock will be back...
Solid as a Rock
On the morning of 6th September 2017, Eden Rock - St Barths was hit by hurricane Irma.
For Eden Rockers, this was the opportunity to rebuild, more beautiful and stronger than ever.
Fabrice Moizan, General Manager, demonstrated the work-rate and optimism that have long been associated with this property.
“We sought an opportunity following a disaster. We took a different perspective on the situation and Eden Rock - St Barths will be coming back stronger and better than before. Post Irma repercussions are immense and have been causing delayed deliveries and other technical issues.
It is with heavy hearts that we have therefore taken the necessary decision to postpone the opening of our beloved Eden Rock until late 2019 when we will welcome our guest friends back, fully operational and shining bright over St Jean bay.”
Always more a home than a hotel, guests will be received even more generously and easily than was the case before and still in the same relaxed Eden Rock style.
The Sand Bar will be transformed but remains the culinary heart of the hotel. The new buildings retain St Barths character with its laidback beach style.The menu is in the hands of culinary maestro Jean-Georges Vongerichten and inspired by ABC & Jojo restaurants and ABCV concept – New York’s favourite new restaurant for healthy food appreciated by foodies.
Brand-new music curator’s playlist will capture Eden Rock’s unique island vibe.
The new Rémy Room and Bar is named after Eden Rock’s initial owner paying tribute to his pioneering spirit. A casual beach bar is added plus a new sun deck with shaded loungers where refreshments are served.
Walk through The Sand Bar and enter the super stylish expanded Eden Being Boutique, stocked with the latest designs and fashion.
Rooms, suites and villas are all being renovated. Two more suites with spacious private pools. And three brand new suites will be revealed on the very top of the rock. Jane Matthews has expanded her art collection and takes pleasure in introducing wonderful new talent via the New York Academy of Art.
Jane Matthews is central within the Design Group which includes the hugely talented Martin Brudnizki Design Studio London, Mercure Engineering & Consulting Paris, Architectonik St Barths and Eden Rock Design. This group has redesigned and refurbished the entire property, preserving the heritage and precious atmosphere which Eden Rock friends and loyal clientele value so greatly.
Fabrice and his team are looking forward to welcoming the first guest-friends from late 2019, and says: “Both the hotel and the team are full of energy and will be ready to rock and roll !”
A très bientôt.
