What it's like

Every moment spent at this property unfolds like a well-written story, compelling you to explore more. The Danish barracks turned historic hotel captivates with its high ceilings, tranquil shades of white and turquoise, and cool terracotta clay floor tiles. As a soothing breeze sweeps through your private entrance, it reveals breathtaking views of the Charlotte Amalie Harbor. The allure doesn't end there. During your quiet retreat in one of four distinct guest rooms, each moment will feel like a beautifully orchestrated blend of tranquility and indulgence.

Small touches

At Home in the Tropics enriches your stay with an array of amenities that are as thoughtful as they are comforting. Each guest room boasts its own private entrance, ensuite bathroom stocked with quality personal care products, a Smart TV, and high-speed WiFi. Enjoy a refreshing plunge in the deep-water pool or retreat with a book from the lending library for a serene afternoon by the poolside. The hotel also has towels, chairs, snorkeling gear, and coolers for your beach adventures. And you can sleep well knowing that the property is committed to sustainable practices, using solar as their primary power source and repurposing filtered rainwater across the grounds.

Eat and drink

Every morning at this historic hotel begins with a symphony of flavors. Their "tree-to-table" breakfast is a tribute to the island's bountiful produce, incorporating locally-grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs. The menu changes daily, so you'll never eat the same meal twice. And when lunch and dinner time comes, the bustling dining scene of downtown St. Thomas is just a short stroll away.
