SunSwept Resorts Acquires Jalousie Resort & Spa From Hilton International

Caribbean Paradise Changes Hands

ST. LUCIA, Virgin Islands, March 3 /PRNewswire/ — SunSwept Resorts, owners and operators of one of the finest resorts in the Caribbean, The BodyHoliday at LeSport, has acquired Jalousie Resort & Spa from Hilton International, in an agreement that will go into effect immediately, although the transition between Hilton and SunSwept Resorts will take effect May 31, 2005. Jalousie Resort & Spa will be the newest addition to SunSwept Resorts’ unique assortment of fine properties.

Jalousie Resort & Spa is located along the Caribbean coastline and set between the beautiful Piton Mountains. Surrounded by beaches of white sand, Jalousie includes 65 villas, 35 villa suites and 12 additional guest rooms, and is conveniently located just minutes from the rainforest, botanical gardens, and breath-taking natural waterfalls.

In addition to LeSport, and now Jalousie, SunSwept Resorts owns Rendezvous — the world’s first boutique resort for couples, also in St. Lucia. The Jalousie announcement comes just weeks after SunSwept Resorts was named the management company for The Landings, Saint Lucia. The Landings, exclusive waterfront residences situated on Pigeon Island expands SunSwept Resort’s newly formed management program. SunSwept Resorts will also be opening their new property, the five-star Plantation on Cotton Bay later this year. The expansion of SunSwept’s interests in St. Lucia offers loyal clientele and first-time guests alike more opportunities to experience the ultimate luxury vacation. With a staff dedicated to ensuring the highest level of client satisfaction, SunSwept Resorts are able to customize each guest’s experience and cater to their every desire. It is the combination of SunSwept Resorts’ exotic settings, extensive amenities, friendly staff, and unsurpassed dedication to their clients that create the unique holiday experience proven to keep guests coming back for more.

Upon acquisition, SunSwept Resorts will continue operating Jalousie as normal, and will retain all existing staff. Renovations to Jalousie’s existing villas and guestrooms are planned as well as an extension of The BodyHoliday brand at LeSport. A center of well being will be created in the natural spring gorge. In 2007, after the completion of the renovations, Jalousie guests will experience this one of a kind multi level rain forest spa fashioned with natural wood and glass, designed to retain the essence of a rain forest.

Jalousie will offer an extraordinary range of facilities and activities, but will not be all-inclusive.

The concept of The BodyHoliday at LeSport was created by SunSwept to be the first vacation in the world to combine the pleasures of an active beach vacation with body cares designed to rejuvenate both body and mind. With the motto, “Give us your body for a week and we’ll give you back your mind,” this upscale resort offers a fun and pampering environment where guests enjoy benefits that last far longer than their tan. The BodyHoliday experience offers a schedule of pampering body treatments, an extensive list of water and land sports, and relaxation activities such as yoga, meditation and Pilates. Gourmet dining facilities are also on-site, including the award winning TAO.

SunSwept Resorts will honor all existing bookings for Jalousie Resort & Spa made through May 31, 2005. For more information, visit
