Starwood Vacation Ownership has announced a $35 million improvement project for their Westin St. John timeshare resort, located on the Caribbean island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The project will involve a combination of expansion and renovations designed to improve the units, dining facilities, pool and meeting areas in addition to the creation of the new Coral Vista villas. In all, 79 existing rooms will be converted into 54 timeshare villas, while adding another 30 two-bedroom apartments and 18 studio units.

“The Westin St John Resort & Villas is one of the most successful resorts in the Caribbean. As the resort and the on-site vacation ownership continue to play a pivotal role in St John’s expansive tourism market, we are thrilled to enhance our presence and commitment to the island,” Steve Williams, chief operating officer for Starwood Vacation Ownership, said in a statement.

“The significant investment in the renovation of The Westin St John Resort & Villas will raise the standard of this premier resort with stylish and contemporary accommodations, unique amenities and a world-class guest experience,” added John de Jongh, Governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands.  “These efforts will ensure that The Westin St. John Resort & Villas continues to be one of the top destinations of choice for business and leisure travelers.”

St. John, along with its neighboring islands St. Thomas and St. Croix, make up the U.S. Virgin Islands and are territories of the United States. As such, U.S. citizens can travel to these Caribbean islands without the need for a passport. St. John is the most unspoiled of the three islands, as approximately 60 percent of the island is protected as a National Park. Adding to the charm is the fact that there are no airports on the island, with visitors flying in to St. Thomas and taking a ferry over to St. John.
