Premier and Minister of Tourism in Nevis, the Hon. Joseph Parry, said the Elite Island Resort-Nevis experience will please the high-end visitor with the newly inducted Nelson Spring Beach Villas and Spa.

Addressing the official opening of the World Class Spa facility, Premier Parry said it is important for properties in Nevis to keep within the high-end tourism product. The Premier also applauded Mr. Deon Daniel, as a young, Nevisian entrepreneur, whose vision and business savvy led to his investment in the Nelson Spring Beach Villas and Spa to be a part of the Elite Island Resort impressive collection of unique beachfront properties.

The introduction of Mr. Daniel to the Elite Island Resort representatives came about when they met with Advisor to Tourism, Mr. Alistair Yearwood at the World Travel Market (WTM) in London. Both parties discussed the possibilities of having an accommodation on Nevis.  Mr. Yearwood said, “The Nelson Spring Beach Villas and Spa fit the criteria beautifully; and we knew it would be a great match.”

Situated in the historic Nelson Spring area, Nevis’ newest beach villas and spa add even more color and sophistication to the rich history of the island.

“Lord Nelson was an outstanding admiral and Leader, according to the British; and you have become an outstanding Nevisian to us all,” said Premier Parry while applauding the young Nevisian business man.  “Many persons have given you credit for being a pioneer. You were a car and land salesman and I remember when you sold almost every Nevisian a car or a piece of land”¦ Now you are selling villas to the British!”

The Premier commended Mr. Daniel for being smart and fortunate enough to have built a first class property and introducing Elite Island Resorts to the island.

Nevis has always been an up-market destination and Premier Parry said that even though the world is facing recession, the very rich will always travel.

During the address, the Premier indicated that the two newly offered flights with LIAT and the British Airways direct flight to St.Kitts will help get visitors to Nevis and this can prove fruitful for the Nelson Spring Beach Villas and Spa.

Also making remarks was the first buyer of a villa property at the Nelson Spring Villas & Spa, Lady Joy Bourne of Great Britain, who said she has been visiting Nevis for almost twenty years. She also said she plans to be very comfortable with her newly constructed villa.

The Hon. Joseph Parry “officially opened” the property, then the Premier and wife of Deon Daniel, Mrs. Nelcia Daniel, performed the symbolic act of cutting the ribbon to open the property.

The ceremony was followed by a cocktail reception at the pool bar.

The villas consist of 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom units. They are furnished beautifully; and equipped to the highest standard. The property also has a fitness center, pool with swim-up bar and tennis courts.
