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.

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.
Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind comments. It was our pleasure to be of service. Cheers Harith

Aother review from Trip advisor.

Our entire vacation at Eco Serendib was wonderful. Every aspect of the Villa was amazing. Every room was spotless and decorated with beautiful pieces. The bedrooms and baths were so comfortable. The kitchen had every gadget and utensil you could possibly need. The spa, gym and pool areas were great. The views are fantastic. We really liked that it was eco friendly. We traveled with our two sons (one late teens and the other a preteen) and we all agreed it was the best vacation we ever had. We look forward to visiting again and would definately recommend it to everyone we know

“One of the best experiences in my life”

My wife and I were fortunate in having the opportunity to stay at Eco Serendib, a truly luxurious eco-friendly, 8-bedroom villa overlooking picturesque Fish Bay, St. John, U.S.V.I. We were picked up at Cruz bay after taking the ferry from Red Hook, St. Thomas, and arrived 10 minutes later at Eco Serendib, burgeoning with tropical flowers, and to the sound of classical music emanating from a grand piano. The large entry area features a magnificent living room, and a truly gourmet kitchen with seating for 10 at the massive breakfast bar.

The sound system is extensive. We enjoyed calypso and Bob Marley music in the villa and around the pool.

We stayed in the spa suite, with a deck overlooking Fish Bay. The suite featured a movable chaise lounge, allowing you to adjust the back and seat to many different positions to suit the comfort level you desire. The suite featueed a large flat screen TV, radio and DVD player. My computer worked just fine throughout the villa.

The bathroom was built with natural pebbles and stones, with simply a mesh window, allowing the tropical breezes to waft through the bathroom. Excellent bathroom amenities and very fluffy, plush toweling. The bed featured 600 count sheets and was most comfortable. Housekeeping was immaculate.

We took advantage of the nice sized pool, especially delightful floating on the rafts in the pool. The pool deck features a chaise bed for two, and plenty of very comfortable chaise lounges.

We decided to cook a couple of nights, and harvested pumpkins, mangoes, papayas, and bananas from the extensive organic eco-garden, also using a number of herbs from that terraced garden. The food market was 7 minutes away and had an extensive selection of fresh fish and seafood. A gourmet market is opposite the food market, selling imported gourmet cheeses and fine wines and spirits.

The spa is amazing, the villa having a separate spa area, with excellent masseuses available, on request. One can also have a massage outside under a canopy overlooking Fish Bay.

The fitness center was fully equipped and delightful.

Famous Trunk Bay for swimming and snorkeling is 20 minutes away, while a quick 10 minutes to Cruz Bay for shopping in upscale, Mongoose Junction, or dining. I would highly recommend restaurant "do livio", an exquisite Italian restaurant. Chef Livio, brought a stone pizza oven from Italy, and also imports his flou
