Thursday, November 27, 2003 - The Government of Saint Lucia has given the go ahead for the construction of a brand new multi million dollar luxury resort at Praslin Bay.

Prime Minister Honourable Dr. Kenny Anthony says the agreement was signed with DCG Properties Ltd., a UK based company which recently announced details of the initial phase of the Praslin Bay Resort.

It will be the first multi phase luxury mixed-use resort on the island and in its initial phase, the developers say the US90 million dollar project will include one hundred and twenty five luxury rooms, fifty mandatory hotel pooled, two bedroom condominiums, a spectacular spa and fitness centre and a world class signature golf course.

Prime Minister Anthony noted that the project “will not only provide job opportunities but will also encourage the opening up of the island’s tourism industry by providing more hotel rooms, which are vitally needed at this time.”

The Managing Director of DCG Keirron Dolby visited the island recently with his professional team to begin discussions on a development and concessions Agreement with the government and to finalise negotiations with the National Development Corporation NDC.

General Manager of the NDC Wayne Vitalis commenting on the importance of the project said his corporation fully supports the venture, as there will be immediate benefits to the Dennery Valley and surrounding areas.

Dr. Anthony explains “We now look forward to the start of construction of this hotel, which will undoubtedly create much needed employment for people from the Dennery valley, but equally important, will also help accelerate the opening up of our east coast to the vast tourism potential we know it has always had.”

Meanwhile the government has requested that the developers meet with the Dennery Valley community to explain the project and hear their views and concerns.
