Golden Rock Resort has recently opened on the Dutch Island of St. Eustatius (also known of Statia). Unfolding across 40 acres of lush landscapes and rolling oceanfront property, the upscale lifestyle hotel is the first and only to debut in the region thusfar, bringing new life to the location while also minimizing environmental impact through many of the resort’s initiatives.
“We’re committed to reimagining Statia and boosting the destination’s tourism while keeping the authentic idyl island experience, which will serve as the foundation for our brand identity – from our sustainable programming to our elevated levels of service – everything comes together in a vibrant atmosphere,” said Peter Barnhoorn, CEO of Golden Rock Resort. “By drawing inspiration from our island’s invigorating activities to create a lifestyle experience, Golden Rock Resort will undoubtedly appeal to dive enthusiasts, adventure seekers, and wellness travelers.”
The guestroom accommodations feature nature-inspired décor with modern finishes and extensive ocean views. Each of the 32 accommodations will feature open-air corridors and private balconies that overlook the expansive, landscaped grounds. Next month, Golden Rock also add an additional 22 oceanfront villas to its roster of spaces.
Once at the resort, guests will have access to a wealth of wellness and nature-related amenities which include two spa-treatment rooms, a massive swimming pool, state-of-the-art gym, as well as daily diving excursions and hikes up the colossal dormant volcano on the island, known as “Quill.” The destination’s premier restaurant, Breeze, will also provide residents with many dishes grown and caught on-site, in addition to picturesque views of the coastline.
In its commitment to a more eco-conscious lifestyle, Golden Rock Resort also makes use of a variety of sustainable systems. These include a solar panel array that runs all electrical equipment on site, a reverse osmosis machine to convert salt water into drinking water and a graywater recycling system that converts used water to supply onsite irrigation systems.
