SI Models take it off at Caneel

The model, along with two gal pals,

, spent almost two weeks last October posing and playing at the Resort for the magazine project. Fashion photographer Raphael Mazzucco did the recording.

"When not frolicking photogenically on the sands, the troupe retreated to Cottage #7, the original quarters of Laurance Rockefeller for more modeling and a splendid night’s street," according to a news release from Caneel’s manager, Rosewood Resorts.

The Sports Illustrated Web site is full of photos of the women and the island.  Each model is featured in several videos, shot on St. John. Randall Grant, a senior designer at SI.com, contributed almost a dozen "touristy" shots of the island and the resort.

Meanwhile, Caneel is trying to capitalize on the publicity by offering a "Suited for Sunshine" vacation package at the resort.  The bundle includes a beachfront guest room, meals, champagne, a sunset cruise, water color lessons, massage for two and 25% off on the purchase of a swimsuit at the Caneel Bay Gift Shop.  Package price is $4,720.

  1. True, but let’s hope they don’t eat at the Equator … The food has been horrible (for the price) for the past 5 years and I don’t think they have had an Executive Chef is 2 years. Nonetheless, I hope the photoshoot didn’t inconvenience the guests at Caneel – guests pay a fortune to stay there and don’t need to be told they can’t ‘be’ somewhere because of a photoshoot – or a wedding, or any other reason. (yes, it’s happened to me too many times)
