The Hon. G. A. Dwyer Astaphan, Minister of Tourism, Commerce and Consumer Affairs, yesterday announced that Elite Island Resorts will be assuming Global Marketing and Reservations Services for the former Rex Papillon Resort and renaming it Sugar Bay Club, effective August 1, 2004. Sugar Bay Club is currently the sole property represented by Elite Island Resorts in St. Kitts.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Elite Island Resorts into our portfolio of fine accommodations on St. Kitts,” said G. A. Dwyer Astaphan.
“Elite has an excellent reputation for high standards and guest satisfaction, so the Sugar Bay Club is certain to make a wonderful addition to St. Kitts and provide another new lodging option for us to offer to visitors.”
When marketing and reservations of Sugar Bay Club is assumed by Elite, Sugar Bay Club will undergo a soft refurbishment but will remain open during the improvements, which will be cosmetic in nature and will not disturb the guest experience.
The 100-room Sugar Bay Club is situated on Frigate Bay beach on the island’s sparkling Atlantic coast, enjoying the best of both worlds with the gentle Caribbean Sea just a short walk away and featuring two swimming pools, daytime tennis, two restaurants, a cocktail bar, gymnasium and private balcony or terrace for every guestroom.
