The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Windjammer Land­ing Villa Beach Re­sort, lo­cated on the north coast of Saint Lu­cia, re­cently com­pleted the sec­ond phase of its ex­pan­sion and en­hance­ment project. It has in­vested more than $7.1 mil­lion to ex­pand the re­sort to in­clude four ad­di­tional lux­ury es­tate North Point vil­las as well as ren­o­vate some of the ex­ist­ing vil­las. To date the re­sort has in­vested nearly $50 mil­lion in to­tal over the past two years to be­come one of the lead­ing lux­ury re­sorts on Saint Lu­cia.

The con­struc­tion of the new North Point vil­las has raised the bar for lux­ury hol­i­day stan­dards. The vil­las are avail­able for va­ca­tion ac­com­mo­da­tions as well as shared own­er­ship. Perched on the north end of the Mediter­ranean-in­spired re­sort, the North Point vil­las are a spec­tac­u­lar ad­di­tion to the re­sort.

Com­prised of three­bed­room con­fig­u­ra­tions, the four new lux­ury North Point vil­las ex­pand the col­lec­tion of vil­las at North Point, bring­ing the to­tal so far to eight, and plans for phase three are al­ready un­der­way.

The lux­ury vil­las are avail­able as up­per level or ground level units. All North Point vil­las in­clude a pri­vate mas­ter en-suite bed­room with a king-sized bed, as well as sec­ond and third en-suite bed­rooms, each with two queen-sized beds.

Ground level vil­las fea­ture out­door show­ers, gen­er­ous out­door liv­ing spa­ces, a pri­vate gar­den and lav­ish in­fin­ity-edge pools, while the up­per level vil­las boast out­door kitchens and din­ing ar­eas un­der a roof top ter­race with a sun deck and over­sized rooftop plunge pools that ap­pear to flow into the ocean.

The in­te­rior aes­thetic of each villa is con­tem­po­rary and com­fort­able. Fur­nish­ings fea­ture a Caribbean-style, easy liv­ing flair. The tex­ture of nat­u­ral wood con­trasts with lime­stone floors, crisp white walls and nat­u­ral shell stone bor­der­ing the ex­te­rior spa­ces. These are ac­cented by trop­i­cal shades re­flected in the art­work by lo­cal artists; this rich cul­ture breathes life and per­son­al­ity into the in­te­rior space.

“The North Point vil­las bring lux­ury va­ca­tions to a whole other level; they are truly amaz­ing in ev­ery way,” said Scott Seger, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor at Windjammer Land­ing Villa Beach Re­sort.

“From the beach­front lo­ca­tion to the state-of-the-art ap­pli­ances - and every­thing in-be­tween - these vil­las will ex­ceed the ex­pec­ta­tions of those look­ing for a lux­ury va­ca­tion,” added Seger.

Many up­dates and ren­o­va­tions have also been com­pleted in or­der to up­hold the re­sort’s high stan­dards and com­mit­ment to de­liv­er­ing a lux­ury va­ca­tion ex­pe­ri­ence. These in­clude: a re­mod­elled break­fast buf­fet area and cof­fee bar at the Drag­on­fly restau­rant; new swing seat­ing and a face lift for the 96 De­grees bar; re-tiling and paint­ing of the main pool and many of the pri­vate villa pools; a new wed­ding per­gola and grounds lay­out for the Wed­ding Gar­den; re-plumb­ing of the Drag­on­fly restau­rant for wa­ter con­ser­va­tion and hot wa­ter ef­fi­ciency as part of the re­sort’s con­tin­u­ing sus­tain­abil­ity pro­gramme; a fresh coat of paint for many of the build­ings such as The Spa and Jam­mers restau­rant; and over­all up­grades to the in­fras­truc­ture and road­ways through­out Windjammer Land­ing.

Windjammer Land­ing Villa Beach Re­sort, which wel­comed its first guests in 1989, was de­signed by Bar­ba­dian ar­chi­tect Ian Mor­ri­son to look like a Mediter­ranean vil­lage. Brick paths me­an­der through more than 60 acres of lush land­scap­ing, scented gar­dens, sparkling pools, cov­ered walk­ways, and hand­painted tiles. Ideal for cou­ples, fam­i­lies, multi-gen­er­a­tional trav­ellers, sin­gles and groups, Windjammer Land­ing is renowned for its wel­com­ing at­mos­phere, friendly staff, ex­ten­sive ac­tiv­i­ties, and sig­na­ture all-in­clu­sive va­ca­tion.

The re­sort of­fers 353 sleeping rooms among 195 units, in­clud­ing vil­las, suites and stan­dard ho­tel ac­com­mo­da­tions. Many of the vil­las fea­ture their own pri­vate res­i­den­tial-size or plunge pool. Guests can en­joy “Bare­foot Lux­ury” with the per­fect bal­ance of cul­ture, health and well­ness, en­ter­tain­ment, ro­mance and ad­ven­ture for va­ca­tion­ers of all ages.

Windjammer Land­ing has in­vested more than $7.1 mil­lion in re­sort-wide en­hance­ments and the ad­di­tion of four lux­ury North Point vil­las.
