Luxury with Private Pool Cabanas Includes iPod Docking Stations, Plasma TVs, Butlers

The Westin Resort is adding six private pool cabanas, left, and extending the pool deck, in a project which should be completed in the next two weeks.

Ultra luxury vacationing has come to St. John at The Westin Resort on Great Cruz Bay.

Guests can now lounge in a private cabana on a comfy padded chaise lounge overlooking the pool and the turquoise waters of the Caribbean while listening to their favorite tunes via an iPod docking station system and ordering their favorite cocktail from a private butler.

Six private pool cabanas are being constructed around the pool area while the pool deck is being expanded and both projects are expected to be complete within the next two weeks, according to Westin Resort general manager Graeme Davis.

“These cabanas will all have individual plasma televisions, iPod docking stations, private refrigerators, complimentary bottles of water and fruit, chilled Evian spritzing bottles and chilled towels, private butler service, dining for four and four private chaise lounges,” said Davis.

The cabanas can be reserved by guests at a cost of $200 per day in season and $150 off season, he added.

To complement their new pool cabanas, the resort is re-opening the view from the pool to beach for “breathtaking dining experience” by  moving the Snorkels restaurant kitchen off the beach into a new facility.



Snorkels kitchen at The Westin Resort will move into a new $1 Million facility, above. Moving the kitchen from the beach will open the view from the pool to the beach and Great Cruz Bay, according to the resort general manager.

“Moving the kitchen off the beach into a new $1 million kitchen facility will open up the beach for a breathtaking dining experience and open the views from the pool and existing Snorkels dining area so guests are no longer looking into a kitchen,” said Davis.

“The new Snorkels kitchen will be completed over the next two weeks,” added Davis, “It will be an excellent addition to the pool and beach dining experience.”

“We are very excited about the new kitchen and upgraded menu offerings that we will now be able to provide at our pool and beach area,” said Davis. “Also, it now opens up the beach space for more flexible banquet and reception options for our groups.”

To top the list of amenities, the resort also is adding three much-needed restrooms and changing areas at the pool for guest convenience, according to the general manager.
