HISTORY

THE MATTHEWS FAMILY

In September 1995, David and Jane Matthews arrived on the island of St. Barths accompanied by their four children.

The family had purchased Eden Rock from legendary island aviator and local adventurer Rémy de Haenen, moving the family from London to the Caribbean in pursuit of a more adventurous life – and sunshine too.

Wishes were granted two days after moving into the rundown buildings of Eden Rock when the powerful category four Hurricane Luis struck the island.

While the storm raged the family was occasionally driven to seek shelter under the concrete sinks in the old kitchen, whilst reinforcing the old doors and windows using anything from bed frames to their recently arrived suitcases. 

Twenty years later, and transformed over that time by the Matthews family, Eden Rock-St Barths continues to flourish and is regularly voted amongst the Top 100 hotels worldwide. The family puts this down to passion, hard work by a dedicated & loyal team and a good dose of luck too.

Family values remain at the heart of Eden Rock – St Barths and this spirit is further strengthened by the recent partnership made with Oetker Collection who offers the greatest guest experiences at iconic masterpiece hotels around the world. 

Rémy de Haenen’s enthusiasm for life, the creative vision of the Matthews family and the management style of Oetker Collection all now form the very essence of Eden Rock – St Barths today. 

GREEN

Green concerns have been important for many years past, at Eden Rock - St Barths. Equipment, gear and fitting out during the re-modelling of buildings and the development of new systems, have included the provision of electric cars, solar power, fridge-heat fed back into the swimming pools and over 80% of rainfall onto roofs being caught up and stored within underground cisterns carrying about 600 tons of weight in rainwater. This is then fed back onto the spacious gardens at the rate of about 70 tons per week. Hydroponics is used for the cultivation of salad items and herbs for the kitchen, in the main. Flowers and pot plants too are resuscitated, having served time in the restaurants, cabins, rooms, suites and houses. Green is grown!
