Located in the heart of St Barths, French West Indies, Eden Rock – St Barths, which is a part of Oetker Collection’s exquisite portfolio of Masterpiece Hotels, is truly a legend amongst the world’s elite destinations.
The chic retreat combines glamour, service and sunshine. Still fresh from an extensive two-year renovation, guests can now experience a fresher, new-look Eden Rock, including three suites that are brand-new for 2020. This is an addition to the newly renovated suites, bar, restaurant and spa concept, which were unveiled in November 2019.
The three new suites are built atop the rock, each featuring a private terrace and beautiful views over the beaches and reefs of the Bay of St Jean. The Vogue is a decadent yet cosy cocoon while the Jane boasts a delightful garden terrace and jacuzzi pool, the perfect space for enjoying a glass of something chilled. The Pippa is an enchanting bi-level one-bedroom suite with a unique wooden tubed spiral staircase leading to a hidden heated pool built into the rock.

Jane Matthews, Co-Founder, Decor Designer and Art Manager comments: “The interiors are elegant and hopefully a little unconventional. We have been keen to showcase both fabulously skilled French cabinet making skills, plus high-quality local island artisanal workmanship. We have stretched to incorporate a striking mix of colours and textures. This involves precious pink marble, superb wood panelling created in Normandy, and a number of additional small details. We sought to hand-make extra-large beds from which views over the lovely beach and beyond are fully laid-out before resident guests and friends”.
More than ever before, 2020 is the year for a much-needed Vitamin D packed winter break. At the end of 2019 the new Eden Spa took up residence on the top of the rock. The yacht-on-land themed sitting room and three discreet wellness cabins invite guests to enjoy an unforgettable Caribbean spa journey. An extensive treatment menu is on offer, in partnership with acclaimed local brand Ligne St Barth, Esthederm expert skincare and Hydrafacial. As well as the Eden Spa in the rock there is also a beachside treatment room and a brand new private spa in Villa Rockstar. The new Yoga Deck atop the rock looking out onto the water offers a serene space for quiet reflection
