ECO SERENDIB VILLA and Spa- St. John
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. www.ecoserendib.com

AMAZING CHARTERS- Let’s face it, to say that you’ve stayed in a posh suite whilst on vacation is quite impressive, but when you drop the old “when I was sailing on my private chartered yacht” catchphrase, that’s when heads of even the savviest of travelers start to turn. True, it sounds expensive and out of one’s scope up front, but we’ve got a little secret on how accessible a luxurious private yacht vacation can be and it’s called Amazing Charters. Yachts aren’t just for the royal elite anymore…

For anyone who’s dreamed of charting a course for adventure (Love Boat fans take keen note), then this is for you. We’re talking gorgeously sleek yachts complete with your own highly experienced captain and staff who remain at your disposal from the time you set sail to when you pull into port for your final disembarkation. All along the way, cruising into secluded Caribbean coves, exploring undiscovered locations, pause and hop on land for a game of golf or for a port city exploration, or take brief respites on some of the world’s most stunning beaches. Bespoke yacht journeys that dazzle with incredible sights and fabulously personalized service, taking you to do what you want, wherever you wish to do it. We’re positively amazed at Amazing Charters’ unique product offering and we know you will be to. www.amazingcharters.com
