The New Year has ushered in a major new development in Nevis as Wyndham Hotel Group has announced a planned $160 million project in the destination.
The beachfront Wyndham Grand Nevis will be situated within Northern Pointe Resort, a new 30-acre luxury real estate development being built along Long Haul Bay in St. James’ Parish.
Phase one of the project and construction is expected to begin by mid-2017 and when completed in 2019, the resort will have 170 suites, condominiums and villas ranging from 900 to 5,100 square feet; a private beach club; five dining areas; infinity pools; more than 10,000 square feet of meeting space; a spa; and more.
“This is fantastic news for tourism on the island that we can attract another international brand to complement our bespoke Plantation Inns and the grand dame of Caribbean luxury resorts, the Four Seasons Nevis,” said Mark Brantley, minister of tourism for Nevis, in a written release. “We look forward to continuing to work closely with the developers to bring this much anticipated development to successful completion and welcome Wyndham to our shores."
This marks the company’s continued rapid expansion through the region, with the hotel company currently operating 13 hotels in the Caribbean.
