Virgin Islands – Caravelle Hotel & Casino to close for renovationsBy Phil - 9 May 2019
Caravelle Hotel & Casino, the 43-room boutique waterfront hotel in the historic town of Christiansted, St. Croix in the Virgin Islands has announced that the hotel will close for six months for remodeling and renovations.
The hotel will close on May 6 and reopen in early October 2019. All team members will remain employed. The casino, award-winning RumRunners Restaurant & Bar, Big Beards, SCUBA, and Caravelle Market will remain open during the renovation.
“In February 2016, we unveiled a completely renovated Caravelle Hotel and the response from the community was tremendous. In 2017 two uninvited visitors, Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria, stormed through the US Virgin Islands causing quite a bit of damage to our hotel,” stated Andrew Dubuque of Caravelle Hotel & Casino. “We were fortunate to remain open and accommodate relief workers while the island mended. Now that most of the island has recovered, we will dive deep into hotel renovations and bring back Caravelle Hotel to its pristine condition.”
The upcoming renovation of Caravelle Hotel and the recent renovation and opening of Company House Hotel, also located in the town of Christiansted, are part of VIGL’s, the hotel groups ownership, commitment to the revitalization of Christiansted, a true historical and architectural gem of the Caribbean. VIGL has had a significant, positive impact on improving the vitality, development, and preservation of the historic harbor town. In addition to funding safety measures, supporting programs and events that bring people to town, and providing monthly, free entertainment for the community, the company has donated more than $300,000 to local charities and non-profit organizations.
