One of St. Lucia’s leading family-friendly resorts has completed 80 percent of a major renovation process, presenting a fresh, modern and functional look for its new and repeat visitors.
Waltrude Patrick, General Manager of the 78-room Bay Gardens Beach Resort & Spa, announced that all 18 garden view, all 24 beachfront, and 20 pool view rooms have already been completely refurbished, with the remaining 16 pool view rooms to be finished in time for the start of the peak winter season in December.
Patrick reported that room upgrades include comfortable furniture and fittings in pastel colors (turquoise, lagoon, capri and rose oak) as well as new Wi-Fi-enabled Samsung and LG smart televisions. New stainless steel kitchen appliances have also been installed in the one-bedroom beachfront suites.
The general manager explained that the primary reason for the refurbishment is to satisfy the 80 percent of guests who return to the hotel. One of them, Sephton Spence, a real estate developer from Toronto, asserted that the friendly staff, great service and safe environment keep him returning, and now he has another reason. “I love the decor … (the rooms) look alive (and) more modern,” he remarked.
