Cool Pool of the Week: Frenchman’s Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort

Got Millennials looking for a little something out-of-the-box when it comes to a pool experience in the Caribbean? Tell them about Frenchman’s Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort’s main infinity pool that is located on a cliff, facing Charlotte Amalie Harbor on St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands.

Looking down from the infinity pool you can see the island’s historic fort, which was built when the island was settled in the 1600s. Across the way, clients will also see Hassel Island. We were told that when St. Thomas was a popular place for pirates to invade, islanders on St. Thomas and Hassel Island would trap boats in the harbor with a set of chains that cut across the two islands.

Millennials can also enjoy the view of cruise ships coming in and out of the harbor as they relax at the resort’s pool. There are three pools at the resort, but this is the only one with a swim-up bar, Azur Pool Bar, which serves up St. Thomas’s signature drink, "The Painkiller." Daily activities in the pool vary month to month, but include aerobics, boot camp, kayak courses, water sports, volleyball and kids’ sports.

Agents should note that the pool cannot be rented out for events or private functions. 

The resort has two distinct guest room locations, either the Frenchman’s Reef Sea Cliff Tower overlooking the harbor, or the Morning Star Beach Resort located steps from the sand. It has a modern fitness center, Luxury Lazule Sea Spa, a private spa pool, Aqua Terra Restaurant, an infinity resort pool, Azur Pool Bar and a children’s "splash zone."
