About the property

Please visit Eco Serendib Villa and Spa on St. John official site ecoserendib and place the dot and the com.

PLEASE CALL 215 620 8809 FOR SPECIALS AND PROMOTIONS. Prices quoted on HomeAway are for all eight suites (up to 16 guests) on Service Tier 1 but guests with smaller parties or those looking for full staffing have additional options. Please contact us at the number above to learn more. We accept just one reservation at a time so you have exclusive use of the villa whether accommodating one or all eight suites.

Eco Serendib offers five-star luxury in harmony with nature and has been recommended by Travel Channel, Caribbean Travel + Life, Islands, Travel + Leisure, Coastal Living, Robb Report, Reader's Digest, The Knot, BlackBook and more.

There are eight elegant suites all with private bathrooms, a full-service spa, Epicurean Theater style kitchen, dining table seating 16, sprawling pool terrace with hot tub, BBQ patio, table tennis/billiards, life-sized chess, breathtaking Caribbean views and all the amenities one would expect at an exquisite private residence. An organic 'seed to plate' garden is located right at the villa for fresh produce and herbs for chef-prepared meals. And for those mixing business with pleasure, the business center technology offers the option for 100% paperless meetings. Dedicated concierge and optional daily maid service, private butler and chef service are available on Service Tier 3 or on an a la carte basis.

The views from Eco Serendib stretch for miles, providing captivating panoramic vistas of the Caribbean Sea's crystal waters. Watch as the calm waters of Fish Bay change from azure to emerald right before your eyes.

Eco Serendib Villa and Spa is an 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.

An “epicurean theater” has been designed using Sub-Zero/Wolf’s “Living Kitchen” products and appliances. The epicurean theater concept was created with interactive, theater-style dining in mind. Guests may sit around the granite countertop and enjoy live, educational demonstrations by professional chefs, or simply sit back and watch as food is prepared. Induction cook-tops, steamers, a wine cooler, and warming drawers round out this professional grade kitchen.

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 things off.

About Harith

Making a fortunate discovery by chance defines serendipity. I was struck by the amazing views and sense of tranquility here and as a 30+ year award-winning hospitality professional, I knew I could create something truly special on St. John. Thus Eco Serendib Villa and Spa was created. One of my missions is to educate and advance the cause of sustainability at the villa and beyond. I was honored with the EPA’s Environmental Champion Award in May 2017 for my efforts in the territory and am president of Island Green Living Association, a local non-profit that promotes green initiatives including recycling and composting. As a faculty member at the School of Tourism and Hospitality at Temple University, I introduced & taught sustainable event management. Passion for excellence, commitment to the environment and pursuit of creating and delivering exceptional hospitality are the hallmarks of Eco Serendib.

Harith purchased this villa in 2008

Why Harith chose USVI/St. John

Standing on Point Rendezvous Estate, overlooking the views stretching from Fish Bay to Ram Head, Harith was filled with a sense of tranquility and unruffled repose. Thus began the creation of Eco Serendib Villa and Spa.

What makes this villa unique

Guests are not renting a villa but an experience. Distinctive features include seed to plate organic epicurean experience, full service spa within the villa, zen garden, outdoor chess set featuring 3 foot chess pieces.table tennis, billiards, etc.
