Rik Blyth will be taking over the position of General Manager of Caneel Bay
Resort. He will be replacing Brian Young, who has been promoted to Rosewood
Hotels and Resorts’ Vice President of Operations. Blyth has a considerable
amount of experience in the Caribbean hotel industry, which included two
stints at the Wyndham Resort in St. Thomas.
These changes come as a part of
Caneel’s new ownership. CBI Acquisitions bought the 166-room hotel from
Deutsche Bank in mid-May. Rosewood Hotels and Resorts will continue on as
the management company. Although there are no major changes planned for
this next year, the property is expecting to get a general sprucing up.
