Description

One of the world’s most iconic and decadently glamorous hotels, Eden Rock—St Barths dates to the mid-forties, when Franco-Dutch aviator and adventurer Rémy de Haenen discovered a tall rocky promontory jutting out to sea while landing his plane on the unspoiled island of Saint-Barthélemy—the first person ever to do so. In 1953, he decided to turn the house he had built into the world’s most exclusive bed-and-breakfast: Eden Rock was born. The resort, now a reference in global hospitality, delivers the acme of luxury and indulgence with unparalleled service, sophisticated gastronomy, and indulgent wellness, all executed in a décontracté sense of fun and devil-may-care attitude. From the iconic Rémy Bar to the private Rockstar Villa, each area is curated to provide an intimate experience and treat guests to a bespoke Caribbean experience. For Eden Rock’s seventieth anniversary, Assouline has imagined a bright volume dedicated to the legendary property. Featuring exclusive archival imagery from the hotel’s early days, this book takes readers on a private tour of the grounds and celebrates the island’s white sandy beaches, crystal waters and colorful way of life. It is narrated by St Barths connoisseur Vassi Chamberlain and complemented by words from guests and locals. Vassi Chamberlain is an award-winning British journalist whose work has appeared in newspapers and magazines globally, including Vogue,British Vogue,Vanity Fair,L’Officiel,The Guardian,The Financial Times,The Daily Telegraph,The Spectator and Conde Nast Traveller, among others. She is a contributing editor at British Vogue, writer-at-large at AirMail , and a contributing writer at The Times and The Sunday Times. Vassi has been traveling to St Barths for over two decades and her love affair with the island is stronger than ever.
