“Eco Serendib is fantastic”

person found this review helpful

Our entire vacation at Eco Serendib was wonderful. Every aspect of the Villa was amazing. Every room was spotless and decorated with beautiful pieces. The bedrooms and baths were so comfortable. The kitchen had every gadget and utensil you could possibly need. The spa, gym and pool areas were great. The views are fantastic. We really liked that it was eco friendly. We traveled with our two sons (one late teens and the other a preteen) and we all agreed it was the best vacation we ever had. We look forward to visiting again and would definately recommend it to everyone we know

“Wonderful Experience and perfect wedding location”

Before I tell you how fabulous the villa is, I first need to tell you that the owner, Harith Wickrema, and his property manager, Laurie Crandall, are the nicest, most generous people I've met. They were so patient and helpful during the planning of my stay at Eco Serendib, and also while I stayed at Eco Serendib.

Unlike other vacations I've taken, the villa is actually EXACTLY like it is in the photos! It is beautiful, manicured perfection. The rooms are spacious and private, the pool area is exquisite with the views and comfortable surroundings, the inside area with the amazing kitchen and seating areas is breathtaking....it really is something to see.

If you are planning a trip to St. John and you want the experience to be the best for you and your guests, I would not stay anywhere except Eco Serendib. It is worth every penny!

“One of the best experiences in my life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

My wife and I were fortunate in having the opportunity to stay at Eco Serendib, a truly luxurious eco-friendly, 8-bedroom villa overlooking picturesque Fish Bay, St. John, U.S.V.I. We were picked up at Cruz bay after taking the ferry from Red Hook, St. Thomas, and arrived 10 minutes later at Eco Serendib, burgeoning with tropical flowers, and to the sound of classical music emanating from a grand piano. The large entry area features a magnificent living room, and a truly gourmet kitchen with seating for 10 at the massive breakfast bar.

The sound system is extensive. We enjoyed calypso and Bob Marley music in the villa and around the pool.

We stayed in the spa suite, with a deck overlooking Fish Bay. The suite featured a movable chaise lounge, allowing you to adjust the back and seat to many different positions to suit the comfort level you desire. The suite featueed a large flat screen TV, radio and DVD player. My computer worked just fine throughout the villa.

The bathroom was built with natural pebbles and stones, with simply a mesh window, allowing the tropical breezes to waft through the bathroom. Excellent bathroom amenities and very fluffy, plush toweling. The bed featured 600 count sheets and was most comfortable. Housekeeping was immaculate.

We took advantage of the nice sized pool, especially delightful floating on the rafts in the pool. The pool deck features a chaise bed for two, and plenty of very comfortable chaise lounges.

We decided to cook a couple of nights, and harvested pumpkins, mangoes, papayas, and bananas from the extensive organic eco-garden, also using a number of herbs from that terraced garden. The food market was 7 minutes away and had an extensive selection of fresh fish and seafood. A gourmet market is opposite the food market, selling imported gourmet cheeses and fine wines and spirits.

The spa is amazing, the villa having a separate spa area, with excellent masseuses available, on request. One can also have a massage outside under a canopy overlooking Fish Bay.

The fitness center was fully equipped and delightful.

Famous Trunk Bay for swimming and snorkeling is 20 minutes away, while a quick 10 minutes to Cruz Bay for shopping in upscale, Mongoose Junction, or dining. I would highly recommend restaurant "do livio", an exquisite Italian restaurant. Chef Livio, brought a stone pizza oven from Italy, and also imports his flour from Italy, allowing him to make authentic thin-crust pizza, which was fantastic. The pizza is made in front of you, while the rest of the menu is wonderful. Highly recommended!

The villa also features the Board Room, featuring a library of fiction and non-fiction books, a large selection of movies on DVD, and a projection screen. There are also over a dozen board games for you and your family to enjoy, and an eco-friendly white board, for those groups coming for a business retreat.

To fully appreciate this villa, i would recommend going on Eco Serendib's website, to check out the facilities and amenities in this outstanding villa. Check out the dozens of eco-friendly initiatives on the website.

Ideal for a family reunion, a honeymoon or anniversary, getting together with a group of friends, or for a business retreat.

What is amazing that one can be in luxurious surroundings, yet everything is eco-friendly.

My wife and I highly recommend villa, Eco Serendib, and cannot wait to return next year. A truly five star experience!

“A spot of paradise on St. John”

I stayed at Eco Serendib last summer with my husband. We were in a party of 5 that was staying at the Villa. Our experience was wonderful in every way. First, the spacious and luxurious rooms and beds, like sleeping on a cloud. Second, the marvelous open kitchen and living room with all we could ask for and more to eat and drink. Third, the views toward Hawks Bay off the dining room, the deck and salt water pool were sublime. We enjoyed a couple's massage in the spa, but our friends chose to have theirs by the pool.

Part of the enjoyment of Eco Serendib is knowing that everything was created here with an eye toward green living and sustainability. It makes experiencing such luxury a good deed!

There is a well-equipped board room suitable for meetings. So this would also be a great place for a small business conference while spouses enjoy the amenities!

Liked best: Can't say- maybe the catamaran trip out to snorkle off the islands!
Liked least: It wasn't an issue for me; I loved the location. But you'll need to use a taxi or rental care to explore town or the island.
