Caribbean hotelier Daryl Aaron has been appointed general manager of the newly opened Bay Gardens Marina Haven hotel in St. Lucia.
Aaron, who has worked across the Caribbean in a variety of hospitality management positions, joins the leadership team of Bay Gardens Resorts, which expanded its portfolio to four hotels with the acquisition of the property, located within close proximity to Rodney Bay Marina.
Bay Gardens Marina Haven opened in mid-July following a soft renovation and staff training. Located in St. Lucia's Rodney Bay area, Bay Gardens Resorts also includes three Green Globe-certified hotels: Bay Gardens Inn, Bay Gardens Hotel, and Bay Gardens Beach Resort & Spa.
Aaron, who was educated and trained in London, Trinidad, St. Lucia and her native Dominica, has two decades of hospitality experience and has worked at Chaguaramas Hotel & Convention Centre and Paria Suites & Conference Center in Trinidad, as well as Castaways Beach Hotel, Rosalie Bay Resort, and Anchorage Hotel, Whale Watch & Dive Centre in Dominica.
A former executive member of the Dominica Hotel & Tourism Association, Aaron said the hotel is an ideal location for groups, including weddings, anniversary celebrations and meetings.
"We are also right across from the marina, with numerous restaurants and bars, where you can have a diverse St. Lucian food and beverage experience," she said.
Bay Gardens Marina Haven is within a five-minute drive of Bay Gardens Inn and Bay Gardens Hotel and 10 minutes from the Beach Resort. Marina Haven guests enjoy the full benefits of a Bay Gardens experience, including six complimentary one-hour passes to Splash Island Water Park, the use of beach chairs, the ability to charge consumption across properties to their rooms, and free non-motorized water sports. Complimentary shuttle service is provided between all Bay Gardens Resorts facilities.
