St Lucia Holidays To Feature First "Eco-Luxury" Villa Resort
St Lucia holidays are gearing up to welcome their latest luxury holidays addition with the coming of the island’s first five-star “eco-luxury” villa resort which was presented last week at the Hilton Hotel London during a star-filled event attended by world-famous celebrities. Some of the lucky few to preview the eagerly anticipated new addition to St Lucia holidays in Malgretoute, Soufriere, included Ministers of the Saint Lucia Government, with Former US President Bill Clinton present as guest of honour. Other celebrities included legendary broadcaster Sir David Frost, Dragon Den star James Caan, singer Paul Young and Nancy Dell’Olio to name a few.
With this luxury and iconic development within a World Heritage site dominated by Saint Lucia’s world famous Pitons, we have the opportunity to promote and augment this amazing natural asset of ours, through exacting eco-friendly standards in construction and design, while opening up Saint Lucia to a new lucrative market and creating prosperity and opportunities for St Lucians.” – said Wayne Girard, the youngest St Lucian national to hold the position of CEO in charge of a major development project on the island.
The high profile event held to present the soon inauguration of the latest addition to St Lucia holidays also doubled as a major charity fundraiser and was attended by 1000 invited guests. By the end of the evening USD325,000 was raised by the Whitton Group for charity, while anticipation escalated for what will be a unique tourism product for St Lucia holidays.
Hosted by the developer Robert Whitton and Caribbean Operations CEO Saint Lucian Wayne Girard in London, the event took place one week ahead of World Travel Market, a high profile trade show and influential forum on the annual calendar of the global travel and hospitality industry.
Whitton International, the resort designers, are moving apace with plans to commence construction, having gained full planning consent. Freedom Bay will be differentiated by its strong Eco friendly aesthetic and it’s positioning as an escape for the celebrity and elite travellers segment of the tourist market.
For ultra-luxurious, eco-conscious St Lucia holidays, among its main features the resort will boast a spectacular restaurant and beach bar facility, state of the art spa and wellness centre, detached hotel villas on the beach and attached to the Cliffside as well as large exclusive private villas all with amazing views of the Caribbean Sea and the Pitons.
“We will bring that same sense of social responsibility to the Saint Lucian community, and fully participate in social development, in support of the government and people of Saint Lucia,” assured Developer Robert Whitton.
The Saint Lucia sod turning is planned for early 2010.
