Stretched out along a cove of white sand beach at Great Cruz Bay is The Westin St. John Villas. This 47-acre paradise provides distinctive amenities and intuitive services all framed by a picture-perfect backdrop of a lush tropical paradise. Just 20 square miles, St. John is the smallest and most unspoiled of the United States Virgin Islands, with two-thirds of the island set aside as national parkland where you can soothe your spirit along miles and miles of trails.
Starwood Vacation Ownership has begun a $35 million renovation project at The Westin St. John Villas, which includes the launch of the new luxury Coral Vista Villas and exciting enhancements to many resort amenities.
Owners and guests can look forward to enjoying a host of refreshed amenities including updates to the main resort pool and pool bar, Beach Café, Mango Deli, and WestinWORKOUT® fitness center.
Along with these exciting enhancements, Owners at the new Coral Vista Villas will experience stylish and contemporary furnishings, floor-to-ceiling windows, picturesque Caribbean views from a furnished private balcony, and of course, signature Westin touches.
Swim to small islands of cooling palms and a warming whirlpool spa within this spectacular quarter-acre pool overlooking the tranquil bay. Break for some leisurely play at the outdoor ping pong, pool and foosball tables. Or revel in the luxury of a private cabana, replete with comforts including a well-stocked mini-fridge, iPod docking station, flat-screen TV and personal hammock.
Just steps from the resort’s pool lie the white-sand beach and yacht-anchored harbor of scenic Great Cruz Bay. Feel the soft powdery sands at your feet walking onto the 1,200-foot stretch of prime Caribbean beachfront before wading into welcoming turquoise waters made smooth by the bay’s gently sloping depths.
A bounty of recreational adventures in or on the water awaits, with many excursions departing from the resort’s dock throughout each day—from parasailing, windsurfing and kayaking amid warm island breezes to sailing, snorkeling and scuba excursions to exotic reefs, caves and grottoes. For a private experience, explore around St. John on your own in a powerboat or sailing dinghy.
Whether you’re spending the day relaxing between the pool and beach or entertaining an elegant dinner of delicious steak and seafood fare, you can satisfy your appetite for oceanside dining and drinks at the resort’s island bars, pool grill and beach café.
Carved on a mountaintop along St. Thomas’ nearby north shore, just a short ferry and taxi away, the Fazio-designed Mahogany Run Golf Course is one of the Caribbean’s top courses, inspiring players of all skill levels to play at their peak, with holes edging dramatic cliffs and the culminating Devil’s Triangle of oceanside challenges.
