After two years of painstaking work, the reconstruction of Eden Rock – St Barths is complete.
“The new designs are wonderful to see,” says Eden Rock co-owner Jane Matthews. “We can’t wait to open again to show our guests and friends what we’ve been up to for so very long.”
With almost all of the property’s interiors devastated by Hurricane Irma in September 2017, the Matthews family decided to carry out a complete redesign, rebuild and refurnish – allowing this much-loved hotel to emerge from its misfortune ready to her an even more exquisite experience for its guests than before.
Leading London-based designer Martin Brudnizki was brought in to weave his magic on Villa Nina and the Sand Bar, which has been positioned higher off the ground to safeguard against future storms; the five Eden Rock Owners Society houses and two Plantation houses have been remodelled; two new spa/gym/health centres have been built, one on the Rock and the other within Villa Rockstar, which now has six ultra-luxe suites; a library and new Rémy Room & Bar have been introduced; and the Eden Being shop – complete with nautical-themed decor and blue wave tiles – is now twice the size it was prior to the storm. Eden Rock plans to welcome guests again in mid-November.
“We hope they will love the new designs as much as we do,” says Jane Matthews, “and be delighted with our interpretation of how to combine the heritage of this place from yesterday with the newly designed beginnings for tomorrow.”
