St Peter Greathouse Tours

Estate St. Peter Greathouse and Botanical Gardens is perched 1,000 feet above sea level on the volcanic peaks overlooking one of the most majestic spots on St. Thomas. Offering views of more than 20 islands and islets, the site's mountaintop location enchants visitors. Sights to see from the observation deck include Hans Lollick, an uninhabited island between Thatched Cay and Madahl Point. 

St Peter Greathouse features Western Indian architecture and a beautiful botanical garden, complete with waterfalls and local plants and fruits. The site is about 20,000 square feet and serves as a popular site for private parties and corporate events. With air-conditioned banquet halls that can hold up to 500 guests, the venue has become a hot spot for destination weddings. 

Gardeners, botanists, photographers and all-around nature lovers rave about the gardens, which many call a “museum of living plants.” The collection extends beyond varieties found only St Thomas with more than 50 families and 200 genera of plants represented. There are tropical flowers, fruits and other plants found from tropical regions across the globe. As if the collection isn't impressive enough, the backdrop is unrivaled. With meandering streams and waterfalls overlooking the Caribbean Sea, it’s no wonder photographers flock to the estate. Don’t miss the birdhouse with macaws and the koi fish in the lily lake. 

The Blue Orchid, the site's signature restaurant, is open Monday through Saturday for dinner and cocktails. Look for freshly caught seafood, Caribbean-inspired dishes, handcrafted cocktails and an extensive wine list.
