CBI projects on Nevis must have hotel component, says Premier

Paradise-Palms-Villa-NevisSpeaking to MiyVue.com, Premier Vance Amory said that reports from hoteliers on the season that ended in April suggest that it had been “the best season in many years”.

“I don’t have the figures, but I will give that qualitative assessment. The taxi operators who had been complaining year-in, year-out since 2006 that they were not getting work, they were quite happy,” Amory said.

Looking ahead, the premier indicated that getting additional rooms is a priority for the Nevis Island Administration, as he cited several existing projects that should deliver on that goal in the short term. Some developments, he said, fall under the Citizen by Investment program.

“We have mandated that all of the projects that will be considered for citizenship must have a hotel component… So we are looking at a number of projects that are hotel based with residencies under the citizenship program. We believe we should have by the end of the next two years at least another 500 rooms, which can drive our request for additional airlift, which is important to the tourism industry on Nevis.”

On-going hotel-residency projects on Nevis include Paradise Palms, Buttler’s Estate Resort and Residences and the expansion of the Four Seasons properties. Constructions is expected to begin later this year on the US$20 million Candy Resorts Villa Development at Liburd Hill, St. James’ parish.
