DEEP WATER CAY, Grand Bahama -- Despite the wet and windy conditions on Sunday, former GB Chamber President and FNM East Grand Bahama Candidate Peter Turnquest visited Deep Water Cay Resort to meet with the island's management and staff. The resort has undergone over 10 million dollars in refurbishing and expanding the original bonefishing lodge. It has been at maximum occupancy over the last few weeks and the owners are currently building more resort rooms to increase their capacity.
"Deep Water Cay is a beautiful resort and management and staff are working hard to expand their product," said Turnquest. During his visit he toured the island and spoke to employees. "The resort employs over 50 staff from the nearby settlements, which is a significant number for the community. The employees here are wonderful ambassadors for the resort, island and country," he added.
Turnquest also spent time with management to review their ongoing plans and discuss their relationship with the local community. He noted: "I was pleased to hear that the resort is already working with Bonefish and Tarpon Trust, Cape Eleuthera and the University of Miami about bonefish conservation. They plan to educate local children on the need to conserve their natural resources and the bountiful beauty of The Bahamas."
He further noted: "This community thrives due to bonefishing and it is something that our government along with the Bahamas National Trust is keen to conserve. I see great potential here in the east of Grand Bahama and should I be elected I will work diligently to promote resorts like this and increase jobs in these communities."
Paradise Island Harbour Resort has a date with the gavel next month, as the 246-room oceanfront property goes up for sale.
The resort, owned by Driftwood Hospitality Management and Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., is going up for auction on September 6 for a minimum price of $6 million. The sale itself will take place in Fort Lauderdale at the Hyatt Regency, directed by a subsidiary of Lehman Brothers, with bids accepted in person or online.
Financial services firm Lehman Brothers is perhaps the most famous victim of the financial crisis after it filed for bankruptcy protection in September 2008. It was the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history.
"It was up for sale for some time," said David Johnson, the director general at the Ministry of Tourism. "It was sold, but the sale didn't go through to the purchaser. There were complications, so it went back on the market. I'm sure they will at least get the minimum sale price, and it should inject life into the property."
The all-inclusive resort is considered an affordable alternative to other hotels on Paradise Island, such as Atlantis and the One&Only Ocean Club. According to the auction listing, the resort presents investors with the opportunity "to acquire a full-service resort unencumbered by management or franchise agreements, allowing an investor to renovate, reposition and brand the asset to generate significant profit".
When asked about the minimum sale price at $6 million, Johnson said the aim is to take market value from around six or seven years ago, prior to the financial crisis.
The director general said the Paradise Island property still represents a premium location, although it would likely need work should a new owner come in.
"I believe it will get sold. Real estate on Paradise Island is worth an awful lot, especially on the water," according Johnson.
Peter Dupuch, the president of ERA Real Estate, told Guardian Business that the $6 million price tag "does seem low".
"It is a very old hotel. The land though is worth a lot of money," he added.
Dupuch said the Paradise Island Harbour Resort hasn't been thriving for some time, so an auction and new ownership could be exactly what it needs to revitalize it.
Johnson agreed with that logic, hoping that whatever investors scoop up the resort make a serious investment to "inject new life".
The all-inclusive property features two on-site restaurants, a pool bar and a fully equipped fitness center. A 300,000-gallon free-form pool, hot tub, kid's video arcade, snorkeling lagoon and an addle activity program round out the resort's amenities and offerings.
