Starfish Resorts will manage three resorts in St Lucia

The Grenadian by Rex Resorts was recently placed under new management and given a name change. Now known as Starfish Resort, the 212-room resort is one of several beachfront properties the Spanish chain owns in the Caribbean.

Starfish Resorts will manage three resorts in St Lucia

The government of Grenada announced last month that the 212-room Grenadian by Rex Resorts has been placed under new management and that its name had been changed to Starfish Resort.

Now a press announcement from Starfish Resort says that three beachfront properties in Saint Lucia, including the Royal Saint Lucia, will be part of the Spanish chain.

“The agreement is between the owners of Rex and Sunwing, so I have no details as yet about the agreement because it’s a private purchase."

Explained Grenada’s Tourism Minister, Clarice Modeste, noting that representatives from new owners of the Pink Gin Beach property on the south side of the island will be arriving in Grenada soon for talks with the government.

Since 2016, the Keith Mitchell government and owners of the property have been in court after the government served notice that it would be acquiring the property in accordance with the Land Acquisition legislation.

However, the owners were successful in having the court to issue a temporary order preventing the acquisition.

Modeste said that government was not part of the negotiation and learnt of the new ownership through an official correspondence recently issued by Sunwing Travel Group in which it announced that the Group’s hotel division would begin operating six of Rex Resorts’ Caribbean hotels as part of a newly-formed strategic alliance.

“As part of this landmark agreement, Sunwing’s growing hotel division plans to make significant improvements to each of the resorts over the coming years. We are excited to be entering into this partnership which reflects our commitment to the CARICOM countries of the Lesser Antilles.”

Explained Stephen Hunter, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sunwing Travel Group. Mr Hunter also commented:

“We look forward to increasing tourism in Grenada, Tobago and Barbados as we have recently done in St. Lucia and Antigua.”

Starfish Resorts will now have five new properties, including Starfish Discovery Bay Resort, Barbados; Starfish Halcyon Cove Resort, Antigua; Starfish St. Lucia Resort, St. Lucia; Starfish Grenada Resort, Grenada and Starfish Tobago Resort, Tobago.
