What's Special About the Eden Rock Hotel:
The Eden Rock Hotel on St. Barths has a unique location, built primarily on a rocky prominence thrust into the sea at St. Jean Beach and braced by twin crescents of sandy beach and facing a coral reef. The Relais & Chateaux hotel began life as a private home where guests included Greta Garbo and Howard Hughes, and despite expansion retains its sense of intimacy and exclusiveness.

Guest Rooms at the Eden Rock Hotel:
The Eden Rock offers a wide variety of unique, historic and beautifully situated guest rooms, suites, villas and houses. Even the most modest are beachfront with terraces and balconies, while guests craving a private villa lifestyle can choose the two-bedroom Villa Nina with 7,000 square feet of space that includes a spa pool and swimming pool, or the three-bedroom Frangiapani beach house. Families will love the Fontaine Suite, which has a separate cabin with two beds for the kids.
Activities and Amenities at the Eden Rock Hotel:
The vibe at the Eden Rock is definitely focused on enjoying your private accommodations and spending time at the beach. Spa services from ER Wellness, for example, are provided in your room, not a central facility; likewise, there's no public pool but rather private pools attached to many of the guest houses and suites. There is a fitness center and fitness classes, however, and the hotel also rents boats and provides concierge service. There also are shops and an art gallery on the grounds.
Dining at the Eden Rock Hotel:
A buffet breakfast is served each morning, while the Sand Bar is the choice for an gourmet lunch of salads, seafood, pasta -- don't be fooled by the unassuming name, this is no burger and beer stand! The gorgeous On the Rocks restaurant, with its circular open deck capturing panoramic views of the calm surrounding sea, is St. Barth's most exclusive. Expect imaginative preparations using the finest ingredients from around the world, accompanied of course by an extensive wine list.
