“Paradise Found”
Reviewed 18 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Of course the property was beautiful, and the views were spectacular, but our inn keepers, Trudy and Chip are the sole reason that all eight of us (including six teenagers) were able to have such a positive experience. From playing short order cooks at breakfast to creating mouth watering snacks in the afternoon and decadent post-dinner desserts late at night, they kept our stomachs full and our tastebuds singing...no easy task with so many teenagers involved! Additionally, they were amazing with all the behind the scenes logistics, and we are incredibly grateful.

“The ULTIMATE vacation destination”
Reviewed 15 October 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Eco Serendib Villa and Spa was combined with the ultimate luxery and breathtaking views. Whether you are and early riser and want to watch the colorful skies as the sun comes up or prefer to look up at the crystal clear night sky and catch a shooting star, Eco Serendib provides it. The high ceilings of the main room with the beautiful interior decor enchants you as you walk in the door. The innovative economically eficient design of the Villa enhances this high quality travel desitination.

Each day, we had the ability to freshly pick from the garden a wide variety of organic fruits and vegetables to be prepared with our meals. The satisfaction and reward to harvest these crops was enjoyable for the whole family and savored with every bite! Our week long stay was accompanied by the richness in all aspects that Eco Serendip had to offer! It is a highly recommended destation spot!

“Serenity at Eco Serendib”
Reviewed 14 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Eco Serendib was a world of serenity. Our group of 17 had plenty of space for socializing and for quiet reflection. First, the owner, Harith, consulted with us before the trip, to learn our preferences. When he heard that we enjoyed chess, in the pre-visit consult, we found not only the outside chessboard but a hand-carved one in the living room. The manager greeted us with iced lemongrass tea grown onsite. We felt that the owner truly went out of his way to personalize our stay. The housekeepers helped us with any requests we had.

The facilities were luxurious. The well-stocked kitchen made large meals easy to prepare. The piano got a lot of use from our budding musicians. Family members were always lounging by the pool or in the hot tub. The mattresses were comfortable. 17 of us dined comfortably around the recycled dining table which mimicked marble. We marveled at the lush and detailed décor, including walls with texture made of recycled materials.

The views were lovely and changeable. When I would wake in the night, I would sit on the deck to listen to the breeze and watch the moonlight on the bay. Overall, the family had a wonderful time and wanted for nothing. We heartily recommend Eco Serendib.

“Villa in Paradise”

person found this review helpful

Our group rented the entire 8 bedroom Villa, situated on a hillside overlooking the ocean. The owner managed our visit to perfection, going above and beyond to make sure we were happy and well taken care of. Our group of Presidents (YPO) had an outstanding time and the accommodations were fabulous with attention to every detail. It was a luxurious meeting location that would be hard to beat. Highly recommended.

“Eco Serendib is fantastic”

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

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!
