A pair of prominent hotels in St Thomas will begin welcoming guests this summer, Caribbean Journal has learned.
One is a reconstruction of the 384-room Frenchman’s Reef Marriott Resort; the other, the new Noni Beach, a St Thomas Resort; the latter is a re-imagination of the former Morningstar Beach Resort.
The new-look Frenchman’s Reef will have six eateries and lounges; three oceanfront pools; 72,000 square feet of event space and a 2,000-square-foot private dock.
Noni Beach, with will be part of Marriott’s Autograph Collection, with 94 total rooms including two suites, along with four eateries and lounges, an oceanfront pool; 13,000 square feet of event space and a beachfront lounge set on a quarter mile of sand.
The combined rebuild is a $300 million project, which recently restarted earlier this year.
Aimbridge Hospitality, which manages both resorts, said it was targeting to “fully open” both properties this fall.
Both resorts will be opening for reservations this summer, according to Michael Lorenz, director of sales and marketing at Aimbridge Hospitality.
“We look forward to welcoming you back to the new Frenchman’s Reef and Noni Beach,” Lorenz said in a statement to guests.
The return of both resorts, located in one of St Thomas’ signature settings, will be a further boost for the US Virgin Islands, a destination that has seen sizzling tourism growth amid the pandemic.
