Blue Horizons Garden Resort in Grenada, Closed
After Hurricane Ivan, Set to Re-open
After $1.2 million Refurbishment 


GRENADA (Feb. 17, 2005) – Following a major US$1.2 million refurbishment project, the 32-room Blue Horizons Garden Resort in Grenada will re-open its doors on July 5, 2005 and present a significantly upgraded product for its guest base of divers, nature enthusiasts and travelers seeking a tropical destination at affordable prices. 

Blue Horizons closed in September 2004 after Hurricane Ivan in order to make the necessary repairs as the resort sustained roof and water damage but no structural damage.

“While Hurricane Ivan was not a welcome visitor, we’re taking this opportunity to completely revitalize our resort product with brand new furnishings, a fresh and exciting color scheme, and select structural renovations to enhance the flow of the property,” said Arnold Hopkin, owner of Blue Horizons Garden Resort.

Following is an outline of the planned refurbishment:

  • All 32 rooms will be repainted with a new color scheme of green, cream and blue tones (reflective of the resort’s logo).
  • All 32 rooms will be completely refurbished with new roofing, colonial sash windows, contemporary style furnishings for the patios, living room/dining room/bedroom areas, colorful drapery, an entire replacement of all kitchen appliances including refrigerator, stove, coffee maker and toaster, and new fixtures and tiles in the bathrooms.
  • La Belle Creole, the resort’s signature gourmet restaurant, will be entirely redesigned with a new roof, concrete floor and arches, and elegant furnishings, while still affording spectacular views from the hills.
  • The pool terrace will receive new furniture.
  • The bar and lounge will be re-roofed.
  • An impressive hotel entrance will be created, and the Manager’s and Front Offices will be renovated with extensions to incorporate parapet walls to the roofs of these buildings.  All windows in these buildings will also be replaced.
“While the resort will have a new spruced-up look, it will retain the charming character, informal appeal and picturesque surroundings that have made it a success for over 25 years,” said Hopkin.

All design and furnishings will be sourced and handled by Kobi Karp Architecture Interior Design Planning in Miami, FL.

Blue Horizons is located four miles north of the airport and less than five miles from the capital city of St. George’s.
