Capella Hotels Takes Over Discovery at Marigot Bay in St. Lucia
Capella Hotels and Resorts which manages ultra‐luxury hotels such as the Capella Singapore, Capella Pedregal in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and the recently opened Capella Washington, D.C., Georgetown, has assumed management of Discovery at Marigot Bay on the Caribbean island of Saint. Lucia after it was acquired by an international development group.
“We’re pleased to add Discovery at Marigot Bay to our portfolio of award‐winning hotels and resorts,” said Horst Schulze, Chairman and CEO of Capella Hotels and Resorts. “We will begin instilling the Capella service philosophy into the property immediately. Additionally, extensive renovations will begin shortly, which we expect to complete by mid next year when it will be branded Capella Marigot Bay. The resort and world class marina will remain fully operational during this time frame.” Seán Carney, a veteran of Capella Hotels has arrived in Saint Lucia and will be the interim General Manager for the resort.
The Resort is located alongside Marigot Bay, once described by the legendary American author James Albert Michener as “the most beautiful in the Caribbean.” Currently the resort features 124 rooms that include fifty‐seven suites (most with their own private plunge pools) with spacious balconies and extensive views of the bay and can be pampered at the Lapli Spa. The property is also home to the ultra‐exclusive Capella Marina at Marigot Bay which accommodates some of the most luxurious mega yachts in the world. Guests of the hotel are able to arrange exclusive charters with a choice of various yachts. The grounds are set on verdant gardens and is a safe haven from where guests can venture out to discover Saint Lucia and its lush rainforests as well as pursue a wide range of adventure and outdoor pursuits including water sports, horse riding, fishing, hiking and climbing.
