OUALIE BAY, NEVIS (9th May, 2017) – The existing dock at Oualie Beach Resort has become increasingly popular as the most convenient gateway between St Kitts and Nevis.
Many of the docks in Nevis were badly damaged by huge storm driven waves in October 2016. The Oualie Beach Resort dock was also damaged, but was quickly made serviceable by the Resort with temporary repairs to the main portion of the dock.
Negotiations have been ongoing since then with TDC Insurance Company to receive compensation to enable proper repairs to be carried out. A team from TDC Insurance Company consisting of John Francis and Nkeisha Nisbett visited the Resort this past week for final inspection of the proposed repairs.
“I am pleased with the dialogue that we have been having with TDC Insurance Company” says John Yearwood, Managing Director of the Oualie Beach Resort. “TDC have assured me that the funds for the dock repairs shall soon be made available.”
The Oualie Beach Resort is a 32 room, family-owned boutique hotel designed to appeal to travelers seeking a laid-back, personalized experience. The property’s management is passionately eco-friendly and employs sustainable tourism practices including solar water heaters, low energy lighting, water saving techniques and community development initiatives. The Resort installed an 18kw array of photovoltaic panels making electricity from the sun and recycles wine bottles on site into glasses for the Bar and Restaurant.
Oualie Beach has recently been awarded the top Green Leaders Platinum Award by Trip Advisor and has received various prestigious awards in recent years including Luxury Travel Guide Award for St Kitts and Nevis 2016; nominated by Island Magazine Readers as the #2 spot out of 50 Best Caribbean Beach Resorts; and being named one of the 20 most awesome Beachfront Hotels under $200 by Caribbean Travel & Life magazine.
Since the first rooms were built in 1989, the Resort has never closed and provides all year round employment to all of its staff that currently number 55 persons.
