Two Resorts Set to Open in the USVI in 2020

DiamondRock Hospitality has announced the return of Frenchman's Reef Marriott Resort & Spa and a new, adjacent resort under Marriott’s Autograph Collection: Noni Beach, a St. Thomas Resort. The $200-plus million project is well underway and the resorts are expected to open in 2020.

The resort complex is located on the Caribbean Sea with design by architects Kollin Altomare and designers Whitespace Interiors. The resorts will provide several distinctive dining experiences, including new restaurant concepts by chef and restaurateur Richard Sandoval.

The Frenchman’s Reef Marriott Resort & Spa, located atop a harbor-side cliff with ocean views, will reopen with 384 guestrooms (28 suites among them), three resort pools (including an infinity-edge pool with swim-up pool bar), a wellness spa and 85,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space. 

Noni Beach Resort, the first Autograph Collection hotel in the U.S. Virgin Islands, comprises a series of beach house-style villas containing 94 guestrooms, including two honeymoon suites, all directly on the beach. Noni Beach has its own beachfront infinity-edge pool with swim-up bar, 3,000 square foot beachfront ballroom and multiple dining experiences, including the Caribbean-casual Coco’s Beach Club.

The reopening and opening are part of the reason why U.S. Virgin Islands Commissioner of Tourism Joseph Boschulte has high hopes for the future of tourism to the territoryIn addition to these resorts, Renaissance St. Croix Carambola Beach Resort & Spa and Divi Carina Bay will be opening next year on the island of St. Croix. Each of these will help build on the increased arrivals the USVI is seeing this year.
