St. John Corporate Retreats


Great Expectations was built as a rental property for large groups. This includes multi-generational family vacations, island wedding groups, couples beach vacations, and corporate events. When you look at the villa floor plan, you can see how the villa construction on the 1+ acre parcel of land allows for groups to congregate, eat, and enjoy themselves together, but just as importantly, get away to their own private bedroom/bathroom when desired.

We feel this is even more important for a corporate retreat where possibly the management team and spouses/partners or top sales people might come on a working vacation with their significant other or a guest. We’ve had corporate groups who’ve used the great room for workshops or did outdoor team building exercises and dinners. When the work is done, some stay together to enjoy a sunset, music and/or refreshments by the pool. Others retreat to their room to read a book, catch up on some sleep or just be alone with their partner.

November 2018 Hospitality Consulting Retreat

This past November we were one of 4 villas housing 32 members of a mainland hotel management & hospitality consulting group. The team was invited to bring their partner and come to St. John for a week to have a working retreat. They utilized various villa great rooms and patios for breakout sessions, upper management workgroups, and hosted their annual awards banquet at Great Expectations at sunset on the final night.

Would you like to discuss having your next corporate retreat on St. John?

Part of our job is travel planning for groups just like yours. Maybe you vacation on St. John every year with family & friends and want to add in another week on island by bringing your co-workers down for a ‘working vacation,’ or maybe Great Expectations would be a great incentive for the top sellers in your firm.
