Eden Rock – St Barths evolved from an imaginatively sited private house built about sixty years ago by Rémy de Haenen – a pioneering aviator and treasure seeker - who became the first Mayor of the Island of St Barths and who died only recently, aged 94, having lived the fullest of lives. Effort is made to encourage that spirit to live-on.
During 1995, Eden Rock changed ownership from one family to another, for the first time. David and Jane Matthews and their children Nina, James, Michael and Spencer, undertook the job of restoring the original buildings, whilst at the same time adding some new ones with the pace quickening following the purchase of the next door Hotel Filao Beach, in 2001.
Eden Rock has now been lovingly restored from stem to stern and finishes up with 34 superbly different accommodations including two ultra-luxe Villas, being Villa Nina with 2 suites & own art gallery and Villa Rockstar with a music recording studio, 2 cabins & 4 glamorous suites, one of which has a bathroom tiled with pure white gold. Villas Nina and Rockstar may be rented together with its pools and outdoor areas as one large house, sited directly on the beach of St Jean.
Butler service is provided 24/7 in both villas by a professional Butling Team.
Eden Rock seeks to continue to evolve a non-corporate world class family owned hotel and residence business equipped with wonderful restaurants, bars, boutiques and sea sport facilities. Its really like a little stand-alone village perched on the edge of the Caribbean sea
Uniquely in the hotel world, Eden Rock also includes active involvement in three creative areas –Art and Artists – Music and Musicians – Food and Foodies, and all of this for the fun and enjoyment its clients, guests and friends.
