Missing Caneel Bay? Here’s Something Special to Hold You Over…

Caneel Bay St John

Have you been missing Caneel Bay Resort on St. John? Us too.

The island isn’t the same without this iconic resort being open. It’s been a longtime favorite retreat of St. John newbies and loyalists alike. So many of us have made memories there to last a lifetime.

We’re so fortunate to be able to operate out of one of the property’s most beautiful beaches, Honeymoon Beach. While you still cannot currently stay at the resort or wander its grounds, you can visit the signature white sand beach for the day and soak, swim, and snorkel in those crystal clear Caneel Bay waters.

We also have a Caneel Bay Kayak, Hike, & Snorkel Tour available if you’d like to explore a bit further beyond Honeymoon Beach.

We’re excited to share that Caneel Bay Resort now has an online shop to help with your nostalgia. They’ve filled it with logo wear and other island gear that Caneel Bay lovers are sure to appreciate. Our favorite? It’s hard to choose, but it may just be this vintage travel poster:

Visit their shop and take a look around. Seeing that familiar logo is sure to tug on your heartstrings!

For those of you who have been asking if and when the resort will be rebuilt and reopened, here’s an update from a resort representative:

“I am optimistic that we will shortly be sharing some positive news regarding the plans to rebuild Caneel Bay Resort. We wish to reassure our loyal followers that Laurance Rockefeller’s philosophy of protecting the environment and supporting the local community, will remain front and center of all our plans. We look forward to engaging with the National Park Service, Territorial Administration and local organizations to celebrate the culture, heritage and cuisine of St. John and to introduce the Resort to a new generation of discerning guests.”


In the meantime, we hope this brings some Caneel Bay island vibes into your world. Happy shopping!
