NEVIS: Wyndham Grand Nevis To Open 2019

Wyndham Hotel Group continues to bolster its robust Caribbean pipeline by bringing ‘approachable luxury’ to the shores of Nevis with the island’s first Wyndham Grand resort.

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 the Parish of Saint James. When completed in 2019, the resort will boast 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 and a spa.

“Nevis is known around the world as one of the most desirable yet exclusive vacation spots in the Caribbean, and as more travellers discover this tranquil paradise the demand for more upscale accommodations will grow,” said Paulo Pena, President and Managing Director, Latin America and the Caribbean for Wyndham Hotel Group.

“Wyndham Grand’s distinct experiences and understated approach to luxury will bring a unique accessibility to this elite island. Adding Nevis to an impressive growing list of amazing global destinations – including Shanghai, Istanbul, Chicago, Phuket and Barbados – not only positions us to raise the Wyndham Grand flag in even more top-tier locations, but it also expands our managed hotel portfolio here in the region and further solidifies our commitment to providing unparalleled guest experiences to all travellers.”

The 36-square-mile Nevis is the smaller of two islands which make up the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis. Travel to the island is on the rise with overnight visitors and cruise tourism increasing every year since 2013.

Late last year Wyndham Hotel Group opened Puerto Rico’s first TRYP by Wyndham hotel in San Juan and announced plans to manage the five-star Sam Lord’s Castle Barbados, A Wyndham Grand Resort. The hotel giant currently has 13 hotels operating in the Caribbean under its Wyndham Grand, Wyndham, TRYP by Wyndham, Ramada and Howard Johnson flags.
