About Saint Croix

An Uncrowded Paradise Off the Beaten Path

St. Croix, the largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, remains a pristine tropical paradise that epitomizes the concept of taking the road less traveled. A tale as old as time, this diverse island blends its Danish heritage with vibrant Caribbean traditions. From the historic towns of Christiansted and Frederiksted to the tranquil shores and lush rainforests. From its rolling green hills and white sandy beaches to the historic forts and sugar mills that dot the landscape, this island invites us to explore its unique heritage and vibrant arts scene. The local cuisine—a delicious fusion of Caribbean flavors—tells its own story of the island’s multicultural heritage. 


During the retreat, our private chef will introduce you to these flavors, curating meals that celebrate the island’s culinary traditions and providing a taste of local life. St. Croix is a melting pot of African, European, Caribbean, native Carib and Taino, and American influences, where music and storytelling can be found on every corner and town square.

This historic estate combines architectural elegance with the tranquility of its expansive grounds, creating a secluded paradise.


The expansive grounds of the Palace offer a perfect blend of mountainous terrains, lush rainforests, and secluded beaches, handpicked to enrich your retreat experience with a variety of inspiring natural landscapes.
