STATEMENT BY PREMIER AND MINISTER FOR TOURISM DR. THE
HONOURABLE D.ORLANDO SMITH, OBE
15th January, 2016
Yesterday afternoon, Ms. Jackie Brown owner’s representative of Rosewood Little Dix Bay Hotel advised me that she was calling a meeting today at 2:00 p.m. to advise the staff of Little Dix Bay Hotel that the hotel would be closing on May 1 for 18 months for a redevelopment of the property.
As 300 staff members as well as the entire territory would be impacted by this development, I am having discussions with the company on the way forward.
Little Dix Bay has been a fine partner with this Government of the Virgin Islands over the years, and I am hopeful that this relationship will continue to grow.
