US Virgin Islands
Situated on a 170-acre peninsula surrounded by the beauty of the Virgin Island National Park and seven pristine beaches, Caneel Bay is on St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. With 3/5 of the island preserved under the national park system, the island remains the least commercial and most low key of the three USVI islands. This tiny Caribbean island getaway is only accessible by boat or ferry. Its beaches are considered to be some of the best in the world. The white sandy beaches shaded by seagrape trees and coconut palms make for a picture setting for honeymooners, families and friends.

Hotel Overview

Caneel Bay invites you to 'disconnect' in pristine natural surroundings and low-key luxury. The resort, nestled within the Virgin Islands National Park on St. John, remains faithful to the vision of founder Laurance Rockefeller and his reverence for the environment. Seven secluded beaches border 170 lush Caribbean acres where Caneel's accommodations have been artfully built to blend into the landscape. The resort remains purposefully absent of modern glitz and digital distractions. A perfect getaway from the furious pace of the world at home.

Nestled within Caneel's lush grounds are 166 charming accommodations. Each intimate retreat has been thoughtfully decorated with natural woods, native stone, hand-crafted furniture and richly woven fabrics. Relax as cool island breezes of St. John whisper through the plantation shutters and the discerning staff attends to your every need. Caneel is an ideal destination for one's romantic Caribbean getaway, family vacation or relaxing escape.

Positioned at the northern end of the peninsula, the Turtle Bay Estate House is Caneel Bay's most elegant restaurant, offering traditional dinner favorites along with nightly specials. The intimate atmosphere at Turtle Bay creates a romantic setting. The cuisine is classical and creative American with a steakhouse inspired theme.

Meetings & Events
There is no better antidote to over-stressed lives, than a serene Caribbean getaway where guests can experience a complete "disconnect" in natural surroundings and low-key luxury. Caneel Bay is nestled within the 5,000-acre Virgin Islands National Park on the island of St. John, remains faithful to this vision of founder Laurance Rockefeller and to his reverence for the environment. Seven secluded beaches border an expansive paradise of 170 lush acres. In this pristine setting, comfortably elegant resort accommodations showcase beautiful vistas of ocean or gardens, yet the structures -- artfully built in the landscape -- are barely in view. Caneel remains purposefully absent of modern glitz as well as digital and electronic distractions -- it's a place where attendees can naturally focus on the purpose of your get-together, and feel enriched in the process.
