“The impact of the global pandemic certainly shook our business to the core,” Marc Langevin, the hotel’s general manager, said in a statement. “Thanks to the support of our local guests and clients, we were able to transform a moment of crisis into a success story and continue to employ a core of our Ladies and Gentlemen for the past year as well.
“It was also thanks to the unwavering commitment and creativity of our Ladies and Gentlemen and the generous support of our ownership group, Dart, that we were able to continue with our operations in the local market.”
He added that he expected the hotel to come back “renewed and stronger than ever” in November.
The press release noted that the financial investment involved in the redesign “especially during such challenging times, reflects the commitment to allow the iconic resort to stay on the forefront of the luxury market in the Caribbean region”.
