Concordia Eco Resort
September 2017 saw two Category 5 hurricanes, Irma and hurricane Maria, slam the island of St John. 200+ mph winds and rain left widespread destruction across much of St John. The Westin St John and Caneel Bay Resort, at the time of writing, are both closed through 2018 … with Caneel’s future the subject of much on and off island debate!
Lost among the news headlines is the loss of Concordia Eco Resort. This much loved collection of soft and hard sided tents and hard-walled suites was the vacation home of many of the former Maho Bay Campground visitors. After the lease at Maho ended, owner Stanley Selengut, focused his attention on a major renovation of most of the infrastructure at Concordia.
For those that don’t know about Concordia Eco Resort, it’s a 20 acre resort, bordering the Virgin Islands National Park above Salt Pond Bay and Drunk Bay. With expansive views of both bays and Ram Head, Concordia was the perfect location and destination for eco-minded travelers and clamping fans! More sophisticated than the former Maho Bay Campground and amenities that included the Concordia Cafe with live music!
