Located on St. Eustatius, one of the last untouched islands in the Caribbean, Golden Rock Resort is now open to international travelers. The luxury lifestyle resort celebrates the area’s unspoiled nature and offers travelers a rare chance to experience the Caribbean in its most natural state. The property spans 40 acres of hills and beaches and offers 32 modern guest rooms with panoramic ocean views, with 22 new oceanfront villas coming in early 2022.
The resort is set next to Quill, St. Eustatius’s dormant volcano that has become a renowned hiking spot with the perfect blend of natural beauty and adventure, all while being just a short distance away from the comfort of the resort. The island itself is home to dozens of local species of birds, many fascinating historical monuments, and more diving locations than you could ask for, including the famous St. Eustatius National Marine Park, which has become a favorite for divers around the world looking for untouched reefs, shipwrecks, and more to explore under the surface. And for history buffs, the 18th century St. Eustatius town center is just around the corner from the resort.
Golden Rock guests have at their disposal a range of relaxing spa treatments, a professionally equipped oceanfront gym, a huge swimming pool, tennis and basketball courts, and more. Hikes and diving trips are available on request, and the resort is hard at work to finish its oceanfront infinity pool early next year.
After a long day by the beach or exploring the island, guests can enjoy Breeze, the resort’s upscale seafood restaurant and steakhouse and dine on specialties like Caribbean lobster, king crab, and beef tenderloin with fresh vegetables grown right in the resort’s own garden.
Golden Rock Resort was also designed to be ecologically sustainable and low impact in order to preserve the natural splendor of the island as it has been for hundreds of years. The entire property is powered via solar panels, ocean water is filtered with reverse osmosis to supply guests and staff with clean drinking water, and dirty water is filtered using a helophyte filter to irrigate the resort’s lush landscaping.
Also known as Statia, the island is located just 33 miles southwest of Sint Maarten. Many international airlines serve the area and short 20-minute charter flights allow guests to reach the island quickly; ferry service will be added in the near future.
