Developers of Port St George on
Long Island, Bahamas Select Langham Hotels
to Operate 224-room Resort Scheduled to Open in 2013
24 September 2009 - Langham Hotels International is set to plant its first flag in the Caribbean and launch the first Langham Place in the North American market following the signing of a management agreement with P.S.G. Hotel Limited.
The 224-key resort will be called Langham Place, Resort + Spa, Port St George, Bahamas, forming a central focus for the island’s economic growth and revitalisation when it opens in 2013.
The Bahamas investment is the latest step to be announced in Langham Hotels International's mission to become one of the leading global luxury hotel brands. It plans to triple the number of properties in its portfolio within the next three years.
“We’re delighted to be introducing the Langham Place brand to the Caribbean and North American market. We believe this five-star resort will appeal to a market of independent yet adventurous travellers who haven't been effectively addressed before,” said Brett Butcher, Chief Executive Officer of Langham Hotels International.
“Our ambition is to create a modern playground for arts, sport and relaxation, using the latest technology to provide a stimulating sense of hospitality that’s not been seen before.”
Ian Moorcroft, Director of P.S.G. Hotel Limited said: “Introducing the Langham Place brand to the Bahamas represents a great opportunity for us to create something unique.
We believe Langham Hotels International's design skills, branding and marketing, as well as its operational management expertise, will set a new standard for high end developments in the Bahamian Outer Islands.”
Langham Place, Resort + Spa, Port St George, Bahamas will enjoy spectacular water views of Exuma Sound and Adderleys Bay, featuring over a mile long beach of pristine white sand. The property will nestle on part of a 1,000-acre development which will include a 640-berth marina, a world class Robert Trent Jones II Golf Course, plus residences and mixed use commercial space.
As well as beautifully designed modern rooms and villas with cleverly
and seamlessly incorporated technology and lavish designer soft furnishings,
the hotel also will feature a DJ to set the mood for a vibrant resort.
Amongst the unique facilities to stimulate all the senses include the award-winning Chuan Spa based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and the hybrid bar and business lounge concept of Portal – Work & Play – which recognises that today’s independent travellers often must multi-task, work, play and connect with the outside world even when on holiday.
A non-denominational wedding chapel and extensive meetings and banquet facilities complete the range of services at this beautiful white sands beach resort.
Langham Place, Resort + Spa, Port St George, Bahamas will be approximately one hour, by air, from Miami and only three hours from New York, making it the perfect weekend and longer destination for East Coast residents of the United States. The Bahamas is nine hours, by air, from London and western Europe. It remains one of the most popular destinations for European travellers looking for a long annual holiday destination.
