The property has targeted a planned opening date of Feb. 15.
“We are elated to announce that Zemi Beach House Hotel & Spa will reopen in February after the challenges of Hurricane Irma,” said Jeff Goldstein, owner of Zemi Beach House. “We’ve completed restoration of any damages that the property sustained, and have returned the hotel and spa to their award-winning five-star status.”
Repairs at the property include the 300-year-old Thai House Spa, an authentic Thai Rice Barn that was turned into a luxury spa; the guest rooms, suites and beachfront villas; Internet, Cable TV and landscaping.
The resort’s beachfront was redone, with additional sand added, while pool areas have been “brought back to their original splendor,” according to a statement.
“On behalf of the entire staff at Zemi Beach House, we appreciate the overwhelming support and the volume of kind messages that we received after the hurricanes hit,” said Paulo Paias, General Manager. “We look forward to not only welcoming our guests back to Anguilla and Zemi Beach House however the people of the island that contribute to our amazing team.”
