The Frenchman's Reef Marriott Resort & Spa is back, and so is a new, adjacent resort under Marriott's Autograph Collection, Noni Beach, a St. Thomas Resort. The $200+ million project is well underway and the re-envisioned resorts are expected to open in 2020.
The resort complex is located on the Caribbean Sea with a cutting edge design by renowned architects Kollin Altomare and designers Whitespace Interiors. Both properties will provide several distinctive dining experiences including new restaurant concepts by critically acclaimed Chef and Global Restaurateur, Richard Sandoval.
About the resorts
The Frenchman's Reef Marriott Resort & Spa, dramatically situated atop a harborside cliff with panoramic ocean views, will boast 384 guestrooms, including 28 spacious suites, three resort pools including an infinity edge pool with swim-up pool bar, a state-of-the-art luxury wellness spa, and 85,000 square-feet of extraordinary indoor and outdoor event space.
Noni Beach Resort, the first Autograph Collection hotel in the U.S. Virgin Islands, is comprised of series of intimate beach house style villas containing 94 guestrooms, including two honeymoon suites, all nestled directly on the beach. Noni Beach boasts a private, beachfront infinity-edge pool with swim-up bar, 3,000 square foot beachfront ballroom with memorable views, and multiple dining experiences including the Caribbean-casual Coco's Beach Club as well as an indulgent restaurant with elevated, 180-degree panorama of the Caribbean Sea.
"This signing underscores our commitment to St. Thomas and to bringing back tourism, meetings and events," said Laurent de Kousemaeker, chief development officer for Marriott International in the Caribbean and Latin America. "We believe that DiamondRock Hospitality has a winning vision for this iconic property - with both the Marriott Hotels brand and the introduction of the Autograph Collection brand."
