June 5 Basseterre St. Kitts: Minister of State in the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sports, Ricky Skerritt is excited about the multi-million dollar deal to build a 1,700-acre tourist resort on the island’s south east peninsula.

Mr. Skerritt told Britain’s World Leisure News and Jobs, that the Whispering Head Resort could return around US$468 million to the St. Kitts and Nevis economy in first and secondary tourism income.

“We are very excited about this project, which will not only bring a new level of luxury to St. Kitts, but also provide a significant contribution to our economy at a time when we are diversifying it away from sugar agriculture and steering it into hospitality services and especially hotel and cruise tourism,” Skerritt told World Leisure News and Jobs, which is owned by The Leisure Media Company.

The Whispering Head Resort will have around 250 hotel rooms, a luxury spa, several restaurants, a championship golf course and 750 residential units.

The resort is the brainchild of St. Kitts-based Auberge Firesky, which signed the development deal with Prime Minister and Minister of Tourism, Dr. the Hon. Denzil L. Douglas, and will manage the construction of the US$78 million, (43m, 62m euros) resort hotel.

Chief Executive of Auberge Firesky, Mr. Mark Harmon told World Leisure News and Jobs that his company is “committed to making St. Kitts one of the finest resort destinations and it would be so because of the partnership with the people of St. Kitts.” Construction is to start next year.
