Eco Serendib offers views that stretch for miles, captivating you with its panorama of the Caribbean Sea’s crystal waters and the stunning southern coastline. Watch as the calm waters of Fish Bay change from azure to emerald right before your eyes. Refreshing tropical breezes encourage you to breathe in the natural serenity of St. John.Whether you're staying for a family gathering, wellness journey, nuptial ceremony or corporate retreat, Eco Serendib Villa and Spa is sure to provide an ultra luxurious, holistic experience of the mind and body.
You may be accustomed to a five star resort, but you're also looking for eco-friendly accommodations. Growing consciousness of environmental responsibility leaves many travelers wondering if they must forsake luxuries and modern conveniences in favor of being eco-friendly. Eco Serendib has found balance with its carefully calculated blend of indulgence and sustainability.
Not only is St. John an exotic tropical destination, it is an island of significant history. In fact, 67% of the island was donated as a national park by Laurance Rockefeller. In keeping with Rockefeller’s vision of conservation, Eco Serendib is dedicated to offering world-class accommodations operating in harmony with the environment. In fact, Eco Serendib Villa and Spa surpasses expectations in terms of both luxury accommodations and environmental sensitivity.
Serendipity is defined as “making a fortunate discovery by chance.” The villa’s visionary, a proud American born in Sri Lanka, named the retreat after his birth country, which was once called the Island of Serendib. Standing on Point Rendezvous, overlooking the views stretching from Fish Bay to Ram Head, he was filled with a sense of tranquility and unruffled repose.
The Presidential Suite at Eco Serendib is possibly the most magnificent suite in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The suite is accessed from an interior landing with a hand-carved mahogany staircase leading to an inlaid marble floor. This grand staircase is a bride's dream for photography; the stately full length makeup mirror and dressing area offer plenty of space to get ready. Hanging majestically 24 feet above the floor is a stunning seashell chandelier. A concealed kitchenette area with Sub-Zero refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker, can be found in the grand entrance area, along with a comfortable writing desk.
Not only does the Presidential Suite offer the highest level of luxury, but this suite offers utmost privacy, as well. A Cyprus ceiling hangs over the sleeping area creating a cozy feel. This suite, with its private living room is the perfect place to relax. Two sets of French doors lead to the private veranda that has a pair of lounge chairs as well as a private dining table for a romantic dinner for two. There is also a private entrance to the gym off the veranda.
The bathroom suite is not to be overlooked. It contains a rare onyx counter top from Kohler’s designer series, Maharani Sinks, which is inspired the exotic Indian culture. The other hard goods in the bathroom are decorated with a special technique that creates raised ruby-like flowers with 24k gold tendrils. A unique “tea for two” chromatherapy bathtub by Kohler has been placed to offer magnificent views of Fish Bay. Perhaps the most unique feature of this tub is the location of the faucet. When designing the bathroom, the owner did not want the dazzling views to be obstructed by a faucet, so the faucet was strategically placed in the ceiling. Not only does this design make for an unobstructed view, but also creates a unique soaking experience as it is visually stunning to see the water gently streaming from the ceiling as you relax in the tub.
A crystal chandelier hangs from the ceiling, lending a touch of elegance. An adjoining room provides a shower, bidet and toilet with large windows that open to breathtaking views.
Eco Serendib Villa and Spa is a eco-friendly, luxury retreat that is setting new standards for eco-luxury on St. John, showcasing how luxury and ecologically sensitive products/systems can co-exist in harmony. Specific examples of eco-friendly elements include: 69 "Buy America" compliant Suniva solar panels, which significantly reduce carbon emissions, and Sub-Zero/Wolf's kitchen appliances, which are made from up to 75% recycled materials and use less energy than a 100-watt bulb. Susan Jablon Mosaics -- featured at the spa and in the pool area, are not only gorgeous but made from 100% recycled glass -- and the gorgeous mulch lining the walkways in the zen garden, produced by The Garden of Glass, is also made from recycled glass. The Andrew Morgan bedding is rich and luxurious yet made of sustainable, organic textile.
There is a grey water system for irrigation as well as three separate 20,000-gallon cisterns to collect rain water. The salt water pool eliminates the need for chlorine and other harsh, damaging chemicals. There is an organic "seed-to-plate" garden located right at the villa for fresh produce and herbs. And for those mixing business with pleasure, the business center technology offers the option for 100% paperless meetings.

An “epicurean theater” has been designed using Sub-Zero/Wolf’s “Living Kitchen” products and appliances.
