The New Year has ushered in a major new development in Nevis. Nevis has enjoyed its status as an authentic Caribbean island, with boutique hotels, delicious cuisine, and a wealth of natural resources in the form of the spectacular Nevis Peak and the beauty of the Caribbean Sea. This is some of what attracted the Wyndham Hotel Group, which recently announced a planned US$160 million project in Nevis.
The beachfront Wyndham Grand Nevis will be situated within Northern Pointe Resort, a new 30-acre luxury real estate development being built along Long Haul Bay in St James’ Parish. Phase One of the project and construction is expected to begin by mid-2017 and when completed in 2019, the resort will feature 170 suites, condominiums, and villas ranging from 900 to 5,100 square feet; a private beach club; five dining areas; infinity pools; more than 10,000 square feet of meeting space; a spa; and more.
“The Nevis Island government is delighted with the announcement from Wyndham Hotels of its expansion into Nevis,” said Mark Brantley, Minister of Tourism for Nevis. “This is fantastic news for tourism on the island that we can attract another international brand to complement our bespoke Plantation Inns and the grande dame of Caribbean luxury resorts, the Four Seasons Nevis. We look forward to continuing to work closely with the developers to bring this much anticipated development to successful completion and welcome Wyndham to our shores.”
Wyndham Hotel Group is the world’s largest hotel company based on number of hotels and one of three hospitality business units of Wyndham Worldwide. This marks the company’s continued rapid expansion through the region, with the hotel giant currently operating 13 hotels in the Caribbean, with the recent addition of 23 operating hotels and three soon-to-open locations to the company’s portfolio across Argentina, Peru, Costa Rica, Uruguay, Paraguay, and the U.S.
