Eleuthera’s French Leave Joins Autograph Collection

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - January 13, 2017

The boutique French Leave Resort in Eleuthera has joined Marriott’s Autograph Collection.

The resort, located on Cupid’s Cay harbor, has 12 seafront cottages with British colonial interiors. It also features a restaurant called 1648.

The resort represents the first construction of seafront cottages on Eleuthera’s Governor’s Harbour since the late 1940s.

Marriott currently has three Caribbean hotels in its Autograph collection: French Leave, Paradise Island’s Atlantis and Scrub Island in the British Virgin Islands.

“Having worked with Marriott on several projects, we are thrilled to partner with Autograph Collection Hotels once again,” said Lance Shaner, President of Shaner Hotels.  “It’s an ideal venture for us as it enables French Leave to retain its authenticity and unique persona, while providing guests with enhanced value and access to Marriott’s network and offerings.”
