Caribbean Hotelier of the Year: Stephen Wright, Grand Case Beach Club, Saint Martin

But that’s long been the case for the Grand Case Beach Club’s Stephen Wright, who has helped turn a small beach hotel in St Martin into one of the most beloved resorts in the Caribbean, a beautiful, friendly hotel aimed at passionate travelers. But Wright’s greatest work just may have been calmly guiding the resort from the depths of Hurricane Irma to a triumphant return — and, now, renaissance.
