Planning for the Future
Save Caneel Bay Resort
The Virgin Islands needs Caneel Bay Resort rebuilt NOW – the historic crown jewel of the Virgin Islands tourism.
As one of the Virgin Islands’ highest ranked resorts, Caneel Bay was a source of pride for the Virgin Islands, welcoming thousands of guests per year, bringing in millions of dollars in direct spending in the Islands, and providing well-paying jobs for hundreds of local employees.
Rebuilding Caneel Bay Resort as it once was, is imperative. And we need it rebuilt NOW!
But the National Park Service does not want
to bring back Caneel Bay Resort.
The NPS has proposed either building nothing on the land, or only building a smaller, non-luxury hotel. What the NPS is not telling you is that if it decides to rebuild the small hotel, it will not generate the economic benefits our Islands desperately need, and nothing will be built for many years. The NPS must go through litigation, several levels of government approval, and a bidding process under federal government rules. It will be a decade before the NPS has anything built on the Caneel Bay land, which is likely its preferred result.
You can help save Caneel Bay Resort.
EHI has operated the Caneel Bay Resort since 2004 and is ready to rebuild now and restore Caneel Bay Resort to its former glory as a five-star luxury resort. EHI has committed to donating the Caneel Bay land to the Virgin Islands people. This can only happen if the NPS agrees to stop litigating and negotiates with EHI to immediately rebuild Caneel Bay Resort.
Please sign this petition to support rebuilding Caneel Bay Resort now.
Everyone can help save Caneel Bay Resort by sending the NPS your comments
that it should negotiate with EHI to rebuild Caneel Bay Resort now.
The NPS public commenting period closes on March 6, 2023.
