Westin Renovations

Very excited and fortunate to be making my 3rd trip to St. John and the Westin!

First time staying in a Beachfront Room & checking in at the end of July.

Can anyone tell me the status of the current renovations?

Looking for info on the Westin Ferry Dock, Restaurants, Spa, Lobby, Rooms, etc.

Any advice and suggestions as to floor levels & building #'s at the Beachfront buildings would also be greatly appreciated. (Buildings 10 & 16)

Thanks and regards to all of Tripadvisors St. John's fans.

From the Virgin Grand villas news letter on June 30th:

As you know, quite a lot of construction and refurbishing is taking place on the hotel side of the resort this year. Three hotel room buildings have been gutted and refitted for sale as timeshare units in the new Coral Vista development. The Beach Café is being renovated and will re-open as the new Lemongrass Restaurant & Bar, which, like the Beach Café, will be operated by Starwood. The menu will be similar to that of the Beach Café, but we are told that it will have a more Caribbean flair. Mango Deli will move next to the new Lemongrass Restaurant & Bar, re-opening as The Marketplace at Great Cruz Bay. Both areas will be air-conditioned space. The resort hopes that another restaurant will open above the lobby by some time this winter, where Cruz Bay Prime was previously located. The gate house is being moved to the hotel side of the property. It will be staffed 24 hours a day. On our side of the road, there will be an automated gate arm that can be opened by swiping a room key, and there will also be an intercom at that location so that an operator can open the gate remotely. Renovation of the airport lounge is almost complete, and renovations of the lobby, fitness center, and kids’ club will take place during the late summer and fall.

With the guest experience at the forefront, the renovations will follow a rolling timeline to ensure that travelers receive the same level of comfort while the resort continues to update the infrastructure and exterior. These renovations will add to the resort’s 96 guestrooms that are currently being refreshed, thus further elevating the ultimate Caribbean retreat.

We look forward to welcoming you to our resort. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email WestinStJohnRenovation@Westin.com.
