    An update on
    the Eden Rock
    construction project

    The rebuilding work is progressing
    and the Eden Rock
    Team wishes to share another
    update with the St Barths island
    community.
    We will reopen around November
    and the date will be released
    shortly.
    Buildings now are fitted with different
    defences and engineered with
    some submarine type doors here
    and there.
    The Rock and its history are cherished.
    Our company is changing
    what must change leaving the Rock
    much the same as it was. Note the
    before and after pictures attaching.
    Three new Signature suites are
    being built where the On The Rocks
    Restaurant and kitchen were sited.
    All restaurant operations now are
    moved down the Rock to one level
    and to one new and defendable centre
    point. The brand-new Sand Bar
    area becomes the gourmet centrepiece
    of the hotel and its new Rémy
    Bar will be the life & soul of the
    whole place. A library, the Eden
    Being boutique and an extended
    Salon, Terrace and Rémy lounge
    will all form part of the new Sand
    hub.
    Eden’s’ original Rock soon will become
    a lot less busy and a lot more
    peaceful.
    The reconstruction project is being
    led by Eden Rock Management and
    Architectonik and we all are proud
    to be working with numerous island-
    based specialist artisans and
    material suppliers. Our united goal
    is to help create a solid foundation
    of quality with other island businesses.
    This to deliver together the best that
    St Barths has to offer its guests
    which is an island with refined hospitality,
    world-class French service,
    and the hard work we all contribute
    together which shows this island’s
    remarkable spirit.
    St Barths is unique in the world.
    Nowhere of its type is better than
    this place.
    Eden Rock looks forward to continuing
    its contribution to the local
    economy.
    We thank the Collectivité and our
    fellow islanders, guests, friends and
    colleagues for their patience during
    two years and we hope that everyone
    will be delighted with the end
    result when we reopen Eden Rock-
    St Barths.
    David, Fabrice, Jean-Alexis
    and ER Team

    I wonder if the "cheap" rooms behind the old Sand Bar (across the path) are still there or if they were swallowed up by " the new Sand hub."

    It looks like the entire restaurant area and the space behind it are being re-designed. The old rooms behind the Sand Bar haven't been "cheap" since Eden Rock's association with the Oetker Collection.

    It looks like a Potemkin village. I realize my opinion is influenced by my memory of what it was like when Remy de Haenen owned it and was there. We were fortunate to meet him and talk about the history of his Roc. Certainly time marches on and updates are necessary. However, I have a feeling the size and scope of the new Eden Rock is way beyond what he would have endorsed. I wish the current owners and patrons the best---- but I will cherish my memory of what it once was.

    We already miss dining over the water at On The Rocks but change is inevitable.

    5 days a ago it was just a pile of rubble and a jackhammer going 8 hrs a day. Good luck with that.

    I have never stayed, but the years it was all jeweled toned was the most gorgeous.
    I wanted to stay there so much then but never made it. (I’m too cheap)

    What a view ER had over the water at night! (Made up for the mediocre sushi ... sorry but it really wasn't their best dish!).

    Now from the above, it seems ER are trying for a very appropriate rebuild. I do hope they come back in style -- and also bring back that pontoon people could sneak onto to dive off of.

    So this is making us a bit wary of the construction and noise..
    Our villa is up the hill a bit overlooking St.Jean and Eden Rock and assuming we will be within earshot...will be there mid May...already anticipating yak yak all day...nothing we can do but incorporate it into our day....aahhh St. Bart’s.....
