Eden Rock is St Barts most exclusive and famous resort. The hotel is conveniently located in St. Jean, close to shops, its most famous beaches, and most exclusive nightspots. St Barts is an overseas territory of France and lies about 35km southeast of Saint Martin and 240km east of Puerto Rico.

Eden Rock opened in the 1950s as one of St. Barth's first hotels and has played host to the rich and famous ever since it opened, including Greta Garbo and Howard Hughes.
Every single one of the 34 rooms, cottages, and villas, are close to the beach and resort’s two restaurants. Some face the sea, while others are set in the resort’s gardens. The rooms have been individually designed and furnished. The hotel was extensively expanded and renovated between 2005 and 2009 when 15 new cottages and 2 ultra-luxury villas namely Villa Nina and Villa Rockstar with pools, a private cinema, and use of a Mini Cooper were added. The end result is modern and contemporary, yet also intimate.
The hotel hosts two of the island’s most famous restaurants: The Sand Bar & Pub, offering more casual dining on the beach, and the fine dining venue On The Rocks Restaurant which also offers sea views. The hotel has teamed up with the world famous French chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, who helps craft creative menus.
