Hawks Cay to Close for Renovations

July 9, 2007 By: Mackenzie Allison Travel Agent

The ball is finally rolling on renovations to Hawks Cay Resort, which was sold earlier
this year. The hotel portion of the property will close its doors on August 13
for extensive renovations, which will include a complete remodeling of the
guest rooms. Plans are to reopen the hotel by the end of the year, and villas
will remain open throughout the renovation process.

Other plans for the Duck Key property, which will become a member
of Preferred Hotels & Resorts, include a new lobby, new dining options and
a redesigned pool and lagoon area, which will serve as the centerpiece for the
resort. The anticipated completion date for the entire project is late
2007/early 2008. After the initial renovations, upgrading of the two-and
three-bedroom villas will begin.

Meanwhile, two top management positions have been filled.
Stephen Bello, formerly of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, has been named
managing director and Joe Derks is the new director of sales and marketing.

Derks told Travel
that a guest-recognition program will be added to provide a more
personalized experience for guests. Also, by taking the resort from mid-market
to high-end, hiring a higher caliber of personnel is on the list of operational

Following the extensive renovation process, the best room to
book will be the Spa Suite, which will boast a 2,000-square-foot ocean-front
terrace. Another "best" pick will be the two-bedroom suite on the top
floor, which will include a spa treatment room.

Northview Hotel Management serves as the new management
company for the resort. Travel agents sending their clients can contact Derks
at 305-289-2996 or [email protected].
