Pure relaxation awaits you at The Westin St. John Resort & Villas, a refreshing 47-acre tropical hideaway on the palm-lined shores of Great Cruz Bay. St. John is a picturesque little island that offers nature lovers an array of activities to partake in.
One of the most popular activities is going to the beach, and that makes perfect sense considering many of the islands’ fine sandy shorelines are protected by the National Park Service.
Two-thirds national park (the pristine Virgin Islands National Park) the tiny island of St. John is home to virgin forests, hiking trails, an underwater snorkeling trail and the magnificent Westin St. John Resort and Villas.
The Virgin Grand Villas offer from studio to three bedroom units and has four types of view: ocean view, beach view, pool view and garden view.
On shore, the resort offers a full-service spa, on-site shopping, tennis with instruction on lighted turf courts and a fitness center. Golf is available at the nearby Mahogany Run course on St. Thomas. Also, the Westin Kids Club will help engage your younger guests with indoor and outdoor supervised activities.
Crystal blue waters and a temperate climate combine to make St. John the perfect year-round setting for recreational activities. The island’s 30 pristine beaches invite you to participate in a wide array of watersports, including swimming, scuba diving, kayaking, sport fishing, parasailing, windsurfing, boating and snorkeling.
The resort is adjacent to the 7,000-plus acres of Virgin Islands National Park, a habitat for tropical birds, fish and plants and a renowned destination for hiking. The park’s beaches and trails offer unique views and scenic overlooks.
Of cultural interest are ancient petroglyphs carved by Taino Indians. Several historical sites, including the Annaberg plantation and Reef Bay Sugar Mill, reflect the island’s colonial past.
