Foxwoods Involved in Reopening of Former Royal Oasis Resort in The Bahamas

It was announced Thursday that the new owner of the Royal Oasis Resort, Harcourt Developments Limited, has partnered with North America's largest casino operator, Foxwoods, to manage the redeveloped resort, according to a written release. The Royal Oasis, located on Grand Bahama Island, closed in September 2004 after being severely damaged by hurricanes Frances and Jeanne. The prospect of the property being redeveloped has created a great deal of excitement on the island located 70 miles from Florida's east coast. Plans call for redeveloping the Royal Oasis. Once the property is expanded and renovated, the resort will boast more than 650 rooms and suites, a casino, convention/meeting facilities, spa, fitness center, restaurants, retail shops, recreation facilities and a host of other amenities. The two on-site golf courses will also be restored. Visit http://www.foxwoods.com. (JP)
