Harlequin Hotels & Resorts commence work on The Marquis Estate, St Lucia

Harlequin Hotels & Resorts and Harlequin Developments recently commenced work on The Marquis Estate.

Garrett Ronan - Harlequin Hotels & Resorts is creating luxury all-inclusive resorts in St Vincent & The Grenadines, Barbados, St Lucia and the Dominican Republic. The first resort, Buccament Bay Resort, opened in August 2010 on the island of St Vincent. Its new brand, H Hotels, is a luxury boutique hotel collection and the first hotel, H Barbados, is due to open in 2012, followed by an H Hotel in St Lucia shortly afterwards.

Work has begun on reception buildings for The Marquis Estate and initial road infrastructure for the Show Villa. These are precursors to Phase 1 of the luxury resort, which will boast the world’s first Gary Player Golf Hotel & Villas and Gary Player Signature Golf Course.

Chairman of Harlequin Hotels & Resorts, Mr Dave Ames, spoke highly of the island’s administration during meetings with the Minister of Agriculture, Lands, Forestry and Fisheries, Honourable Ezechiel Joseph.

This relationship has been cemented by the business-friendly approach St Lucia and its Government takes to encourage international investment. St Lucia is a shining example of how business can be conducted in the Caribbean.”

Harlequin’s commitment to St Lucia is further demonstrated by the planned launch of Harlequin Air, which, if accepted by the Government and ECCAA, will be based in St Lucia and operational by the end of 2011. There are also plans to open an “H St Lucia” hotel, which will be the second in Harlequin’s new luxury boutique collection.

  1. Please Mr Bajan Reporter, check Harlequin’s record of successful development. This looks like a press release and Harlequin deserve better reporting from you than than that.
    Buccament Bay in St Vincent was the subject of a number of complaints from purchasers, not least because their deposits could be/were used to finance other developments. Mr Stuart Kennedy, a Barrister from the UK with a practice in St VIncent may be able to help you further with what happened there.
    Merricks and the H Hotel in Barbados are on hold – apparently because the Barbados Government did not deliver on tax concessions. The H Hotel Barbados electrical contractor was in the news as not having been paid.
    A cynic would say that Harlequin should focus on the completion of their current developments rather than starting new ones.
    Or is there some other reason for starting new developments? New deposits, perhaps.

  2. I am providing an opportunity for the owners to share their voice, when I can actually get on the site and answer certain queries it may well be different… But remember the Desiderata?

  3. Will you be able to say for sure that the hotel will begin building in st lucia within the next few months,and tell me what about the airline
