Minimum disturbance for St Lucia holidays at Jalousie Plantantation as hotel starts refurbishment works

Continuing with its ongoing efforts to provide nothing but excellent St Lucia holidays, The Jalousie Plantation resort is currently undertaking a general refurbishment of the public areas as well as the building of new luxury villas. There are 9 clusters of rooms/villas scattered throughout the more than 100-acre plantation, with each cluster located a considerable distance from the others.

The building of new villas has been completed in two clusters—the 500s and the 800s—in addition to the remodeling of a single new villa in the 400s.

Ground work has already started in preparation for the remodeling of one villa in the 300 cluster with the addition of one new villa next door to it. Due to the type of building, most of the work will be manual in nature and the entire area will be screened from view. Any noise associated with the remodeling and building work will be kept to a minimum to ensure guests can still enjoy premium St Lucia holidays experiences while the works are carried out.

Ground preparation and remodeling work is also set to start on the 100 cluster on 31st July 2010. The entire area will be screened from view and every effort will be made to keep noise and disruption associated with the remodeling work to a minimum.

The path to the beach from the Great House has received a facelift with new pathway treatments while landscaping along the Great Lawn is continuing.

The Sugar Mill Rooms are currently closed for a complete renovation and upgrade. The bulk of the work will be internal to the existing structure which means there will be very little, if any, disruption to guests. The Sugar Mill area is a distinct cluster of rooms with no other accommodations nearby. The renovation of the Sugar Mill Rooms is expected to be finished by late October.

Meanwhile, the gymnasium has been fully renovated and is now open for use with state of the art Technogym equipment including treadmills, bikes, elliptical trainers and free weights. A new rum bar (The Cane Bar) opened in August 2009 and a new late night bar in the central Great House opened in September 2009.

The bulk of the retiling and other work on the new Verandah lily pond and fountain has now been completed and the area is awaiting landscaping and final touches. On the other hand The Bayside Restaurant has been completely renovated and re-opened on last 7th December, 2009 with a new menu, enhanced facilities and brand new decor, enhancing diners' overall experience for unsurpassable meal times during St Lucia holidays.

It is anticipated the new Rainforest spa tree house treatment rooms will be completed and in operation this autumn. As the work is within the Rainforest Walk area, disruption to guests is minimal as is the noise associated with this project. Our current hill-top Spa continues operations as normal.

The resort wants to emphasise that every effort is being made to keep disruption to guests in house to a minimum, reassuring them that the quality of their St Lucia holidays here will hardly be affected. In the meantime the work continues until further notice.
