Big news from the Caribbean: Le Guanahani on St. Barth’s will reopen in spring 2021 as Rosewood Le Guanahani St. Barth. Originally opened in 1986, the beachfront property has been closed since late 2017 due to the effects of Hurricanes Maria and Irma.
Upon opening, Rosewood Le Guanahani St. Barth will debut with the complete renovation of all 66 guestrooms, suites and villas, many with new private pools. The property will also offer a range of updated amenities, including a beachfront dining concept and new pool, a Rosewood Explorers children’s club, fitness center, tennis court, Sense, A Rosewood Spa and dedicated event spaces. Surrounded by two beaches, including a reef-protected lagoon, and just a short distance from downtown, Rosewood Le Guanahani St. Barth will allow guests to discover St. Barth through a myriad of watersports, hiking, and sea and town excursions.
Rosewood Le Guanahani St. Barth will continue to operate under the leadership of managing director Martein van Wagenberg, who has managed the property for the past six years. This marks the return to the Rosewood family for van Wagenberg, who previously held managing director positions at Rosewood Little Dix Bay and Las Ventanas al Paraíso, A Rosewood Resort.
Rosewood Le Guanahani St. Barth will join Rosewood’s portfolio of Caribbean and Atlantic properties, which currently includes Rosewood Baha Mar in the Bahamas, Rosewood Bermuda, and Rosewood Little Dix Bay in Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands. Additional projects underway in the region include Rosewood Half Moon Bay in Antigua, set to open in 2023.
