Eden Rock – St Barths 2.0: iconic Caribbean hotel to unveil new spa as part of two-year renovation

by Jane Kitchen | 13 May 2019

A design collaboration led by the Eden Rock Design Group and Martin Brudnizki Design Studio will transform the iconic Eden Rock St Barths hotel in the Caribbean, including a new spa concept.

The hotel, which is part of the Oetker Collection, is set to reopen on 20 November following an extensive two-year renovation.

Constantly inspired by the island of St Barths, owner Jane Matthews has been at the helm of the Eden Rock Design Group, which includes the Martin Brudnizki Design Studio London – marking its first project in the Caribbean – and Architectonik St Barths. Together, the group has redesigned and refurbished the entire property with a fresh look and feel, while preserving the heritage and atmosphere.

The brand-new Eden Spa will take up residence inside the top of the Rock, where the legend began. The new yacht-on-land themed sitting room and three wellness cabins will invite guests to enjoy a Caribbean spa journey.

In partnership with local brand Ligne St Barth, an extensive treatment menu will be available using natural and sundrenched products. All Ligne St Barth products are created on island using ingredients of natural origin, including frangipani flower, melon, sugar cane and mango butter. Three beach cabanas are also available.

Additionally, all rooms, suites and villas throughout the hotel have undergone a complete transformation. Three new rooms with sea views have been built on top of the Sand Bar area, while three additional suites – two of which with private swimming pools – have been built on the Rock.

Located directly on the beach, the hotel’s villas have also been remodeled with accommodation now comprising six suites in Villa Rockstar, three suites in Villa Frangipani and three equally appointed suites in the newly designed Villa Nina by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio London.

Matthews has also expanded her art collection within the property, and Eden Rock – St Barths will continue its 20-year commitment towards exhibiting art and introducing artists, and its long-term collaboration with the New York Academy of Art’s Graduate School of Art.

“The rebuilt Eden Rock – St Barths will be stronger and better than ever, while at the same time preserving its precious heritage commenced by Rémy de Haenen in 1953 and channeling the same unique one-of-a-kind atmosphere as before,” said Fabrice Moizan, general manager.

Matthews added: “Our family has chosen the option to refurbish and renovate throughout Eden Rock - St Barths. We continue to fix our sights on being world class and remaining one of the best hotels in the world. In this ambition, we are so thankful to belong on this fantastic island. There is like nowhere else it in the world.”
