Eco Serendib Villa delivers five-star accommodations with an eco-friendly twist.

Eco Serendib, harmoniously positioned on St. John’s southern shore just three miles from Cruz Bay, is one of the island’s most inspired villas. With an ever-widening eye on environmental health, the CEO of Harith Productions Ltd., Harith Wickrema, has paved an innovative way to guests’ own well-being. Offering ultra-luxury accommodations with deference paid to the villa’s natural surroundings, Eco Serendib Villa has been recognized by both Condé Nast and Forbes as an exemplary leader in the growing industry of eco-friendly hospitality.

An incomparable vacation option for its forward-thinking approach to resort living, Eco Serendib offers eight elegant suites, a full-service spa featuring the exclusive Sodashi product line, Sub-Zero/Wolf’s “Living Kitchen” appliances, a sprawling pool terrace, an orchid garden, panoramic Caribbean views, and all the amenities of a first-rate private residence, as well as experiential opportunities with a sustainability theme. Eco Serendib has been designed to excite guests about the benefits of greener living, enabling them to understand that few sacrifices need be made in the name of more eco-conscious luxury stays, as well as to open avenues for fiduciary support and hands-on involvement with projects like the Eco Serendib Beach Restoration Project.

In addition to its environmental conservation mission, the villa is remarkable for its “epicurean theater” kitchen and interactive dining opportunities. Guests enjoy cooking demonstrations by professional chefs while gathered around a massive granite countertop at the center of the fully equipped show kitchen. The Locavore Experience package includes multicourse dinners with wine tastings, during which diners relish dishes made from the fresh fish, herbs, and vegetables that they caught or harvested, while sipping varietals made by a local winemaker in attendance. During certain weeks of the year, Eco Serendib even hosts local and celebrity chefs, vintners, and food critics who share new techniques and recipes from around the globe.

Recreational opportunities abound with nearby Hawksnest Beach and many other white sand beaches just a short five to 15-minutes drive away. There is also the on-site spa with sauna, steam shower, treatment room, lounge, and sunken tub, plus a state-of-the-art gym with 24-hour access. With a maximum occupancy of 16 adults (plus an additional two children on rollaway beds), Eco Serendib is ideal for families. For a destination wedding/reception, the villa comfortably accommodates 40 guests.

Unique in ways that can only be experienced firsthand, Eco Serendib Villa has struck a beautiful balance between indulgence and mindfulness. Whether for celebratory occasions or personal wellness retreats, this resort-like property promises an opulent, thought-provoking stay. Villa rates start at $2,600 per night.
