Those waiting to attend the reopening of Oetker Collection’s Eden Rock – St Barths will have wait a little longer. Resort officials had originally told Luxury Travel Advisor that the reopening was planned for this summer but it is now postponed until December. 

According to the latest update from the resort, the property will undergo a renovation project ahead of the reopening that will add a number of additional facilities. Led by architecture and interior design studio Martin Brudnizki, the Sand Bar main restaurant will be refreshed with a colonial vibe and laid-back beach styling. Villa Nine will be entirely remodeled with a tropical-inspired aesthetic incorporating bold artwork and contrasting materials, including patterned linen, statement onyx and a coral and green color palette. The renovations will also include the redesign of three more cottages, drawing inspiration from the beach landscape surrounding the resort.

“It was important for us to keep the unique spirit and vibe that has always been part of Eden Rock – St Barths,” said Eden Rock – St Barths General Manager Fabrice Moizan in a written statement. “The internationally acclaimed Martin Brudnizki Design Studio understands our DNA, and the redesigned spaces will reflect both our soul and the new Eden Rock.”
