The Mal­abar Beach Club in­vites lo­cals to savour their ‘Toes in Sand’

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL - By Faye-Chantelle Mon­de­sir

The Ren­dezvous Ho­tel, known as “the ideal es­cape for ro­man­tics”, last Fri­day opened its shores to its new­est ad­di­tion, the Mal­abar Beach Club. Gen­eral Man­ager Yhas­mine Remy Hil­ton is thrilled to be able to of­fer lo­cals and vis­i­tors alike a top notch ‘toes in the sand’ din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. The cou­ples-only re­sort has for the past years been one of the lo­cal prop­er­ties to main­tain con­sis­tency and a high qual­ity of ser­vice.

The restau­rant was launched late last year but last Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 26, an of­fi­cial in­vi­ta­tion was ex­tended to me­dia to visit the Mal­abar Beach Club.

“Ren­dezvous has been a strong fea­ture of the Saint Lu­cian tourism in­dus­try and this year we cel­e­brated our 20th an­niver­sary,” said Hil­ton. “The ho­tel is one of the first all-in­clu­sive ho­tels on is­land, as well as one of the first to de­liver on desti­na­tion wed­dings. A lot of firsts and a lot of ma­tu­rity be­hind the ser­vice,” she went on to in­form the press.

As part of the prop­erty’s tran­si­tion from a fourand-a-half-star to a five-star rated ho­tel, the fa­cil­ity was tem­po­rar­ily closed to un­dergo ren­o­va­tions, par­tic­u­larly within the pub­lic ar­eas. Part of that timely upgrade in­cluded the restau­rant ad­di­tion.

Ac­cord­ing to man­age­ment, the in­tent of the Mal­abar Beach Club is to of­fer a more au­then­tic ex­pe­ri­ence to guests. ”We are aware that tourists are com­ing to our desti­na­tion be­cause they want some­thing dif­fer­ent, so we want to en­sure that a Saint Lu­cian ex­pe­ri­ence, cul­ture, her­itage, food and peo­ple are well rep­re­sented in what we do,” Hil­ton dis­closed. Ac­cord­ing to her, the con­cept of Mal­abar has been de­signed with just that in mind.

The cui­sine at the Mal­abar Beach Club is of an in­ter­na­tional style with a lo­cal flare, cou­pled with the infusion of lo­cal in­gre­di­ents and spices, all ex­clu­sively Saint Lu­cian. Man­age­ment is con­fi­dent that the restau­rant, el­e­gantly perched on a stun­ning, two-mile long, white sandy beach re­treat, ranks among the best in the world in terms of qual­ity stan­dards, with the abil­ity to com­pete with any other lo­ca­tion. And Saint Lu­cians are be­ing en­ticed to ‘en­joy life’s plea­sures too’.

The adult-only ho­tel, lo­cated along the Vigie Beach, is si­t­u­ated in what man­age­ment con­sid­ers to be the ideal lo­ca­tion, sit­ting just min­utes away from the Ge­orge FL Charles Air­port.

When asked about what is unique to the prop­erty, Hil­ton told the STAR, “There are very few restau­rants lo­cally which are right on the beach. And the man­age­ment of the Mal­abar Beach Club pride them­selves on pre­sen­ta­tion and the infusion of lo­cal in­gre­di­ents like salt fish and ground pro­vi­sions.”
