It is my privilege to invite you to experience our passion of spreading the eco-friendly message as well as our 3.5-year labor of love in creating this villa. Feel free to reach out to me personally if I can be of help as you navigate your decision making process in selecting St. John. 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. Dishes, glassware, flatware, cutlery, bake ware, serving pieces, cookware are all provided for your use. A coffee maker, toaster, blender , frozen drink maker etc top off the list of professional grade kitchen equipment.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Our group rented the entire 8 bedroom Villa, situated on a hillside overlooking the ocean. The owner managed our visit to perfection, going above and beyond to make sure we were happy and well taken care of. Our group of Presidents (YPO) had an outstanding time and the accommodations were fabulous with attention to every detail. It was a luxurious meeting location that would be hard to beat. Highly recommended.
