Golden Rock Dive & Nature Resort
Resting at the foot of the (sleeping) Quill volcano, on 40 acres of immaculately manicured grounds, Golden Rock Dive & Nature Resort welcomes the intrepid traveller to its eco-friendly retreat offering the idyllic blend of adventure and luxury.
Thanks to the perfect placement of over 130,000 plants, trees and flowers around the resort, you’ll be greeted every morning with the charismatic dancing of resident hummingbirds and butterflies. By day witness a striking volcano backdrop complimented by views out to St. Barths in one direction and St. Kitts in the other, and by night let the peaceful starlit skies wash your worries away.
The resort’s eco-conscious lifestyle efforts are not in vain – reverse osmosis machines provide the hotel with clean drinking water, the 2240 solar panels support their ‘off the grid’ goals, in room lighting is managed by sensors and timers to ensure there is no wastage, and a helophyte filter aids the resort’s irrigation. An onsite greenhouse provides the restaurants with freshly harvested ingredients and the daily catch is sourced from your local friendly fisherman.
Golden Rock Dive & Nature Resort
Aptly named, Breeze offers a memorable gastronomic journey with a stunning outlook. The restaurant serves mouthwatering locally and sustainably sourced dishes focussing on a fusion of Caribbean and international cuisines. Choose from their tantalising selection of wines and cocktails to pair with your meal.
At the other end of the resort by the cliffside, is Bobbie’s Beach Club, giving a complementary atmosphere with a DJ or live band creating a great island vibe. Whimsical and brightly adorned wall murals of hummingbirds mirror the fusion cuisine on offer – choose from freshly prepared sushi or Italian pizzas and more!
All cottages, rooms and suites enjoy expansive views across the resort’s manicured gardens and out to the ocean beyond, and each feature mod cons, fresh plump linens and sustainable amenities. Fall into a sense of pure relaxation from the moment you enter your accommodation where a contemporary design is complimented by nature tones, all blending harmoniously with the surrounding environment.
A whole variety of resort amenities await – a multipurpose court for tennis, football, basketball and more, mini golf, yoga, a sanctuary for spa and wellness, and an extensive children’s playground. Choose from three pools: the family friendly hummingbird pool, the hibiscus adult only pool, or the resort’s sea fed lagoon next to Bobbie’s Beach Club. If the beach is calling you, the resort shuttle is bookable to take you to a sparkling volcanic sand beach nearby.
As its name suggests, the resort strives for and supports eco-tourism, offering a diverse selection of nature-focused activities encouraging guests to experience the island’s biodiversity. Have a bash at beekeeping, stargazing or a guided hike up the Quill volcano which not only offers an insight into various microclimates and ecosystems, but a decent workout is also rewarded with panoramic vistas. Don’t let that rustling noise spook you, it’s just your neighbourly hermit crab (yes, up a volcano!) rolling out of the way.
And the diving! Sint Eustatius has been named the best diving in the Caribbean by National Geographic! Experience valet guided diving at its finest with the resort, for all skill levels. 36 different sites are waiting to be explored from lava flows to shallow reefs, shipwrecks, and archaeological sites.
