About Eden Rock
Eden Rock has been owned by an English couple, David and Jane Mathews, since 1995. With Jane's personal choice of décor fusing perfectly with St. Barths' French chic, this hideaway has been transformed into a paradise of sophisticated style and is considered one of the finest hotels on the island.
Every detail is superb - from design and décor, to service. Inside the rooms, suites and cottages, the pure white walls hung with colourful works of art are a backdrop for wonderful, contemporary furniture - clean lines and innovative design mixed with tasteful 'craft' pieces. All open out onto superb terraces and gardens, which are relaxing spaces cooled by gentle breezes and affording lovely views.
This hotel really has to be seen, and experienced, to be believed. It's a masterpiece of luxury island living.
