There’s luxe, and then there’s fabu-luxe. Eco Serendib Villa and Spa on the gorgeous, unspoiled island paradise of St. John takes the latter to an entirely new level. This hotspot hideaway is magnificently perched atop a hillside with magnificent views of the Caribbean sea, and not only is it stunning, it’s supremely eco-friendly , employing energy saving green elements into the operation while providing guests with an optimized version of the good life.

Enter and you’re immediately awestruck by the magnificent hand-blown glass sculpture of a St. John sunrise, complemented by eclectic custom-designed furniture and decorative pieces that reflect the international travels of the owner. Accommodations are equally as phenomenal, we’re talking 600-thread-count linens, luxury bath products, Frette robes, villa concierges, and striking decor. For a true treat, try the Presidential Suite, complete with its own chromatherapy tub with gorgeous views out to Fish Bay.

In as much as the rooms overwhelm, the spa is the true opulent centerpiece of the property. Step through the arch clay entrance and you’re enveloped by a sense of tranquility, while you bask in luminescent lighting and relaxing natural fragrances. Eco Serendib’s spa utilizes the award winning Sodashi product line for their impressive array of treatment options. Highlights include a Kohler steam shower, Sunlighten sauna, stunning couples treatment room and luxurious Living Earth Crafts spa equipment, and for those that wish to take their treatments alfresco, outdoor massages can be arranged.

Add in an exquisite 16-person dining table crafted by recycled material, a full luxury kitchen designed for interactive theater-style dining, outdoor BBQ area, a salt-infused hot tub and pool, and a Yamaha baby grand piano and you’ve pretty much found the ultimate private retreat.
