It is my privilege to invite you to experience our passion of spreading the eco-friendly message as well as our 3.5 years of labor of love in creating this villa.

Yes I will share information about other villas and hotels so that it will lay the foundation for a wonderful vacation in St. John irrespective of which option you choose. Make it St.John, USVI.

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 significantly reduce carbon emissions. Other eco elements include 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. The “epicurean theater” concept, a first for the Caribbean, was created with interactive, theater style dining in mind. Ten to twelve guests may sit around the granite countertop and enjoy live, educational demonstrations by professional chefs, or simply sit back and watch as a chef prepares their culinary masterpiece. Induction cook-tops, steamers, a wine cooler, and warming drawers fill this professional show kitchen. We also have a dining table that seats 16.

During your stay at Eco Serendib, we can provide a professional chef to prepare your meals or you can do the cooking yourself.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We got married at this beautiful villa on June 23, 2014 and stayed for the rest of the week with our family. We enjoyed every moment of our stay and would recommend this villa to anyone! The owner is extremely friendly, easy to book with and helpful in coordinating our extravagant day and vacation. The villa's fresh farm to table touch was simply amazing and the staff at the villa were lovely. We enjoyed them as much as we enjoyed our stay as they helped go provide a memorable time. Each suite has it's own unique charm which provides for extreme comfort. THANK YOU Eco Serendib!

Absolutely Breathtaking !!

  • 5 of 5

Eco Serendib Villa and Spa was combined with the ultimate luxery and breath taking views. Whether you are and early riser and want to watch the colorful skies as the sun comes up or prefer to look up at the crystal clear night sky and catch a shooting star, Eco Serendib provides it. The high ceilings of the main room with the beautiful interior decor enchants you as you walk in the door. The innovative economically eficient design of the Villa enhances this high quality travel desitination.

Each day, we had the ability to freshly pick from the garden a wide variety of organic fruits and vegetables to be prepared with our meals. The satisfaction and reward to harvest these crops was enjoyable for the whole family and savored with every bite! Our week long stay was accompanied by the richness in all aspects that Eco Serendip had to offer! It is a highly recommended destation spot!

Wow

  • 5 of 5

Having been an experienced Virgin Island traveler, I have stayed at many hotels across the islands. I decided to venture off to new territory this visit and contacted Eco Serendib. I was sold by its rich appreciation for the environment and magnificent amenities the villa had to offer, well and the view itself. This was one of the most well kept properties I have ever stayed on, the rooms were spotless, the bathrooms fragment, and the landscape in beautiful condition. One of my favorite aspects of Eco Serendib (after the sunsets and constellations) was its location. A very short drive right to the center of town, about 2 miles from the Weston. Nothing but the best at Eco Serendib, I hope you all make the right decision during your travel

Villa fit for a King and Queen

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely in love with this place, we never wanted to leave! Let me just start off with our room…I'm 7 months pregnant and we planned this trip to get away before the baby comes. I haven't slept well in over a month as the uncomfortable stage had begun, the pillows and the mattress in our room had me sleeping like a queen. This villa has many experiences that they will customize to your particular needs, from a nightly sleep experience to a custom grown fresh garden that you can watch grow up to 120 days in advance and will be cooked for you when you get here. This is the ultimate of luxury experiences! The villa from head to toe is gorgeous, the views I would argue are the best on the island. They have everything here you could need from coolers, floats and snorkels…to a fully stocked kitchen and access to private chefs and house manager if you need anything at all. You never have to leave the villa, with your own pool table, life size chess game, the pool and hot tub, on-site spa, this is relaxing and fun at it's best. The suites are to die for, they just scream luxury. Head downstairs to the private spa equipped with a treatment room, sauna, steam and bath, for a spa experience you've never imagined. To top it all off the villa is eco friendly and uses a lot of recycled materials that looks amazing. The gorgeous dining room table is made from recycled wood and poxy, one of the most stunning tables I've seen. The pool and spa tiles are made of recycled windshields and the pathway through the spectacular orchid garden up front is made of recycled soda bottles…even the pool furniture pillows are made of recycled soda cans! It's incredible to see what can be made by recycling!! This villa is top of the top. Hands down coming back next year, even with the baby (they even have all baby accommodations as well). Home away from home!

A little piece of heaven.

  • 5 of 5

I've been to St. John a dozen times or so staying at the Westin or other Villas...this year, my family (6 total) pulled the trigger with Eco Serendib Villa & Spa and we're so glad we did. Everything, and I mean everything was absolutely stunning. The views, the amenities, the beds, the care that Harith (owner) puts into the details to ensure his guests have everything imaginable. You want to go to the beach? Eco Serendib has everything you'll need. You want to lay at the villa pool and enjoy the view, go ahead, and enjoy a massage afterwards on site in the beautiful spa. You want a private chef to cook for the family? Done, and you can request the vegetables of your choosing from the on site garden. Truly the best vacation experience of my life.

I can't say enough amazing things about Eco Serendib, except that we'll be back and I can't wait to be!

I've known the owner for 25 years. He's known around the world for hosting some of the most elegant and comprehensive events. He's been named the Best Meeting Manager in the World a number of times. A stay at Eco Serendib is assured to exceed your expectations. Enjoy St. John at its very best.

Spectacular stay with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

Walking into the house there was an immediate powerful embulliance. The elegant decor in the villa adds to the spectacular view which over looks Fish bay. This private location is one of the many reasons which gives off the warmth of staying in a home. Perched on top of the windy road the journey to the Eco Serendib villa adds to the anticipation for the adventure that is to begin. From sunrise to sunset each moment incorporates relaxation, richness, and rejuvenation. Harvesting from the villas organic garden, fresh greens, fruits, herbs, and vegetables added a special flare of flavor to each meal. While enjoying the luxurious stay at the Eco Serendib Villa and Spa there was a strong underling responsibility to our earth that was taken under consideration. It provides getting the most out of each day while being very conscious in using the least amount of natural resources.
