Problems With Rosewood

The ultra-luxury Rosewood hotel brand tapped to manage the resort expected to be built at Harrison?s Point has lost yet another important management contract of a beachfront property. Five years after its contract to manage the Carenage Bay Club on nearby Canouan in the Grenadines had to be terminated it has been announced that the year and a half old Acqualina Resort which recently made the Conde Nast Hot List and located in Sunny Isles, Florida just north of the hip South Beach area will also be hauling down the Rosewood flag at the end of the month. Luxury brand Raffles now runs the Canouan resort but interestingly Acqualina is saying that it is leaving Rosewood to create its own brand. This latter intension, however, cannot hide the obvious dissatisfaction with Rosewood so soon after the resort's opening barely over a year ago. Whatever the problems with Rosewood are, developers at Harrison?s Point and the Bajan public which was invited recently to comment on the plans for the area should pay attention to this latest development.
