Frenchman’s Reef

St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands

A true Caribbean paradise located on the picturesque island of St. Thomas, the Frenchman’s Reef pool is sure to be at the top of places to visit. This luxurious resort’s pool area combines stunning oceanfront views with impeccable tropical ambiance.


The sprawling, multi-tiered, infinity-edge pool that overlooks the crystal-clear waters of the sea is the focal point of the Reef. Each design choice for the design of the pool complemented the natural surroundings with native flora, swaying palm trees, and a stunning lounging area, creating an oasis of relaxation.

Guests are invited to unwind on comfortable sun loungers, take a dip in the inviting waters, or enjoy a drink at the poolside bar. With the ocean only a few feet away, the sound of waves lapping against the shore is sure to put your mind at ease.

Covered cabanas poolside offer shade, plush seating, and personalized service. The Frenchman Reef pool area blends the ocean views and is often the setting for some spectacular sunsets. In the evenings, the pool area transforms into a magical space full of soft lighting, live music, and a romantic atmosphere that’s perfect for special moments. The Frenchman Reef marries natural beauty with modern comforts for every guest.
