Wyndham Destinations has announced the reopening of its Margaritaville Vacation Club by Wyndham resort on the island of St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The resort reopened to club owners and their guests for the first time since major hurricanes struck the island in September 2017. 

Wyndham Destinations President and CEO Michael Brown, as well as several members of the company's leadership team, traveled to St. Thomas to personally recognize the efforts of the resort team and to join them in welcoming owners and guests to the resort. While in St. Thomas, the Wyndham Destinations leaders also visited the company's nearby Elysian Beach Resort and Bluebeard's Beach Resort, where renovation efforts continue.

In addition to the staff that remained throughout the restoration process, the resort hired 41 people this spring to help prepare for the reopening and to join the team of full-time employees, which exceeded the company's hiring projections.

"The reopening of Margaritaville Vacation Club by Wyndham is another positive step which contributes to our ongoing efforts to rebuild the territory's economy," said Commissioner of Tourism Beverly Nicholson-Doty. “Their support contributed significantly to our recovery efforts.” The U.S. territory averages more than 2.5 million visitors annually, according to the U.S. Virgin Islands Bureau of Economic Research.

Margaritaville Vacation Club by Wyndham is located on Water Bay at the eastern end of St. Thomas. The resort has studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom suites, each with a nautical feel and outdoor seating. Fully equipped kitchens include a bar area complete with a Frozen Concoction Maker.
