Wyndham Hotels and Resorts announced last week that it will enter a new Caribbean market with the development of the luxury 400-room Wyndham St. Croix Golf Resort and Casino, which will become the keystone of a $250 million complex that includes a new 43,000-square foot conference center on St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, according to a written release.
The 294-acre property is slated to break ground this spring and will open in 2010. It will be developed by New Jersey-based Golden Resorts LLP in a joint ownership with Jericho All-Weather Opportunity Fund of Boca Raton, FL, and managed by Wyndham Hotel Management Company. The resort will feature a 25,000 square-foot casino; 18-hole Jack Nicklaus signature golf course; 17,000 square-foot spa and fitness center; four restaurants; lounges; retail stores; and a Kids’ Club. The property will be located on the south shore of St. Croix, near downtown Christiansted and 15 minutes from Henry E. Rohlsen International Airport. Visit www.wyndhamworldwide.com. (JP)
