These white sand beaches and verdant hills were settled in the 1700's—the landmark stone sugar mill on the property dates from sugar plantation days. Sunbathe or set sail for Buck Island Reef for diving or snorkeling. Indulge in an end-of-day massage, then watch the stars come out overhead while you dine on filet mignon with wine from the Wine Specatator Award–winning cellar at The Terrace.
The Great House looks out over the sea from its hilltop perch; the view of the lights of Christiansted coming on at night is especially lovely. The cool, marble-tiled Doubloon rooms open onto the beach or sit just above it. Family run for 50 years, this resort excells in service: ice buckets are refilled twice a day and your room is stocked with fresh flowers.
400 years of history—and luxury that lets you lose track of time
