Morningstar Buoy Haus Beach Resort,
Autograph Collection

Long the luminous beacon perched on the point above the Caribbean Sea on St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Frenchman’s Reef reopens Spring 2023. The renowned luxury resort has been reimagined in a $425 million rebuild with two world-class resorts on the iconic site.

Along the Frenchman’s Reef beachfront, Morningstar Buoy Haus Beach Resort is the epitome of island escape. This new boutique Autograph Collection hotel on St. Thomas offers a thoughtfully crafted Virgin Islands experience with everything you need to enjoy your stay. Rest well in well-appointed rooms with plush bedding, scenic views and locally inspired decor.

You can also experience an array of island adventures like sailing, snorkeling, kayaking, sightseeing and more. Of course, a trip to the USVI means beach time and here white sand and turquoise waters are just steps away …

Dining options abound at Frenchman’s Reef.  At Buoy Haus Isla Blue brings the Caribbean’s vibrant bounty to the surface. Inspired by our warm, inviting island and life on the beach, Isla Blue serves the freshest seafood with tropic island flavor, flair and elegance.

More casual options include Salt Shack for a beach club escape to enjoy Baja-style tacos and fresh pineapple-infused rum, right from the source. With laid-back vibes and delicious small bites, Salt Shack will hit the spot. Sandy feet welcome. Or drift in and cool down at the Sandbar, Buoy Haus’ oceanfront beach-and-beverage experience. Next to the sand, eye-level with the sea, St. Thomas works its magic.

Next door at Frenchman’s Reef, The Westin Beach Resort & Spa, sits atop the landmark point, and offers even more dining options such as Sugarfin, celebrating Asian flavors born of the sea. You can enjoy fresh poke, hand-rolled sushi, sashimi, and a curated selection of the locally distilled rums. Coastal Mediterranean fare paired with fine wines and craft cocktails against the backdrop of a moonlit sea awaits at Luna Mar. If you’re looking for dining to suit every taste and appetite, Shorebird’s buffet and brunch fits the bill. And Frenchman’s Roast is your one-stop shop for daily island essentials – from fresh coffee and juices to grab-n-go eats, beach gear and sundries.

There is also a sanctuary of self-care on site for pampering in paradise during your island escape. The resort’s signature spa and salon experience offers the latest in rejuvenating health treatments as well as traditional wellness and full salon services.

We’re certain discerning travelers will enjoy our inspired dining options, our luxurious spa, exciting island excursions and authentic experiences only possible in the U.S. Virgin Islands with no passport required for U.S. citizens.

While there is a whole island to explore and experience here in the USVI, you will find Frenchman’s Reef — with its two world-class resort experiences — to be the centerpiece of your visit. A place where special memories are made …
