Eden Rock, St. Barts’ first resort, has been an elite tropical getaway since the 1950s, having lured Greta Garbo, Howard Hughes, the Rockefellers, and, on New Year’s Eve, yachting enthusiasts. The Peak, one of Eden Rock’s top villa accommodations, is currently available for reservations and is a most suitable base from which to experience the December 31 festivities, which include the annual New Year’s Eve Regatta, fireworks over white sand beaches, and shipboard parties. (Eden Rock’s 24-hour concierge can help guests obtain party access.) The cliff-top villa, which sits on one of the island’s highest peaks, was designed by architect and interior designer Wolfgang Ludes and features locally made wenge wood furniture and large, bright rooms with unobstructed, 360-degree views of St. Jean Bay and St. Barts’ surrounding islands. The villa, which rents for $175,000 per week, offers 5,920 square feet of indoor and outdoor living space, with four bedrooms with private terraces, two outdoor heated pools (one privately located off the master bedroom), and a library. Gustavia Bay, where dozens of superyachts drop anchor for New Year’s, is only a 10-minute car ride away.
