Bluebeards Castle

Due to the horrific damage from two category 5 hurricanes, Bluebeard's Castle is currently closed for renovations. They have reported that the Pirate's Pension units will open in late 2019, but the rest of the units are closed until further notice. They are working hard to restore these accommodations to their original splendor.

Bluebeard's Castle has a truly astonishing pedigree- a fortress from the 17th century, an ex-governor's residence, serene hilltop real estate with startlingly gorgeous vistas of the local town and harbor, and proximity to some of the best restaurants and shopping in the Virgin Islands. With all of this and more going for it, combined with a mutil-million dollar renovation underway, Bluebeard's Castle resoundingly sets itself apart from other hotels.

Bluebeards Castle can also be an excellent spot for those looking for some after-dinner fun. In addition to other things, you'll be able to relax at their very own bar, which is located conveniently on the property.

Located in the eastern part of Charlotte Amalie, Bluebeards Castle offers a warm welcome to visitors interested in staying in this part of the city and its environs.


Bluebeard's Castle offers two simple choices in guestrooms: studio villa or one bedroom villa. All villas are comfortably and modernly outfitted with flat-screen televisions, couches, small dining areas, ceiling fans, patios, wall safes, and crisp and clean decorations and paint. Rooms provide breathtaking, almost surreal views of the harbor from the hilltop it is perched atop.
