HARBOR CLUB – INAUGURATION GALA
Harbor Club in Rodney Bay has been welcoming guests since it opened its doors in December 2017. On Saturday 17th March it held an impressive Inauguration Gala.
Harbor Club has a nautical theme and it’s fair to say that it pushed out the boat for this black-tie occasion hosted by owner, Jamaican-born Wes Hall. Specially invited guests, including Tourism Minister Dominic Fedee, and international media were welcomed with champagne and wines in the resort’s Market Street before being taken on an escorted tour of the property.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony took place in the stunning pool area. Guests were then led up to the Sushi deck and on to the Golden Grove Ballroom for a sit-down meal. The entertainment continued in the Sky Lounge with Barbara Cadet playing saxophone.
The evening was executed with precision and style, as would be expected from this friendly yet professional resort. Said Rachel Mecca, Director of Sales and Marketing, “Jump on board!
This is just the prelude of what’s to come.”
SANDALS GOLF AND COUNTRY CLUB –
GREG NORMAN TO TRANSFORM GOLF COURSE
Hall of Fame golfer turned businessman Greg Norman, “The Great White Shark”, has been engaged by Sandals Resorts International to transform the existing golf course at the Sandals Golf and Country Club in Cap Estate. Earlier this year Mr. Norman took a tour of the grounds, admiring anyone playing the course as, in his estimation it is a difficult course to play. “A diamond in the rough” was how he described it, noting its potential. Mr. Norman plans to turn the 18-hole course into an international championship course that will benefit not only Sandals and its guests, but Saint Lucia as a destination as well as the Saint Lucian community. Keeping his promise from last year, Gordon “Butch” Stewart, founder and Chairman of Sandals, has ensured that the club has remained open to locals and has continued to support local charities such as Grow Well and its golf lessons for disadvantaged children.
Major Plans for Saint Lucia’s Air and Sea Ports
Saint Lucia is making major investment in its infrastructure. The Hewanorra International Airport is expected to undergo a major expansion to complement marketing efforts of the island as both a holiday and business destination. The government is in the final stage of negotiations with the project developer for the construction of a world-class airport with all modern amenities.
The south of the island will also benefit from the proposed Pearl of the Caribbean development. This is expected to include a cruise ship terminal, duty free retail plus other retail and food and beverage establishments, a hotel and casino, waterfront residences, a marina and Free Zone businesses.
In the north, the Pointe Seraphine Berth #1 has already been expanded making it possible for the Castries seaport to berth Quantum class vessels.
Invest Saint Lucia is presently examining options for the overall redevelopment of the Pointe Seraphine Duty Free Shopping complex and its immediate environs..
