New owners get Royal Pavilion winter-ready
Royal Pavilion hotel is remaining in the Fairmont Hotels and Resort chain despite the recent sale of the upmarket 17-acre West Coast property.
The hotel’s acting general manager Tim Morrison told the DAILY Nation the five-star hotel would continue to fly the flag of the Canadian-based operator of luxury hotels and resorts, though it had been bought by new owners.
Global real estate brokerage CBRE Hotels recently announced the sale of the Barbados hotel which was formerly owned by global real estate company Ivanhoe Cambridge. It was sold to London Regional, a London-based property company said to be one of the largest privately-held property firms in Europe.
Extensive renovations have been carried out on the hotel’s 72 rooms and it is now gearing up for the 2014 winter tourist season which begins on December 15.
Morrison, who arrived in Barbados just over a week ago, joined senior sales and marketing manager Lisa Gibson and sales manager Catherine Mapp to present the hotel’s Christmas offerings, targeting local corporate clients at a cocktail reception hosted at the hotel last Thursday. (GC)
