Renaissance Hotels has opened the 157-room Renaissance St. Croix Carambola Beach Resort & Spa in the U.S. Virgin Islands, under a franchise agreement with JS Carambola, LLP.

Situated on a secluded stretch of white sand beach along the north shore of the largest U.S. Virgin Island, the Renaissance St. Croix Carambola Beach Resort & Spa was originally constructed in 1986 by Laurance Rockefeller as a lodge-style beach retreat for his family. Before Renaissance purchased the  resort, it was known as the Rock Resort.

The Renaissance St. Croix Carambola Beach Resort & Spa is designed in a classic Caribbean style. The 157 guestrooms feature wooden accents, comfortable furniture and sweeping views of the tropical island.

“This resort is a fantastic addition to the Renaissance Hotels portfolio and adds to the brand’s growing distribution in the Caribbean,” says Andrew Houghton, area vice president for Marriott International in the Caribbean. “The hotel offers guests a beautifully serene setting and the top notch accommodations and service for which the Renaissance brand is known.”

    The beginning of this article is completely wrong. The property known as Davis Bay was owned by Laurance Rockefeller who never developed it although he did build the Fountain Valley Golf Course on the other side of the hill in the 70’s. His resorts including, Caneel Bay, St John; Litle Dix, Virgin Gorda; The Woodstock Inn, The Boulders were called Rockresorts. Do a little homework before you publish something for gawds sake!
