ST. MAARTEN (January 16, 2008) — Pelican Marina Residences announced that the first phase of the new property opened in December with 36 of the 83 luxury villas, in addition to the pool, lobby, reception, a waterfront boardwalk and tropical landscaping. When the resort is completed in the spring of this year, it will also have a restaurant, bar, gym and a spa.

Richard Corso, Royal Resorts Chief Operating Officer say, “We are excited about Pelican Marina Residences. After years of planning and construction, it is immensely rewarding to see the resort open to glowing reviews. The decision to offer fractional ownership at Pelican Marina Residences caters to a growing demand among St. Maarten visitors who want to spend more time with families and friends in their favorite corner of the Caribbean.”
The two-bedroom, two-bathroom villas sleep six and feature an innovative floor plan which gives owners several usage options. They can enjoy the whole villa or use the lock-off facility for a one bedroom suite sleeping four and a junior suite for two with a separate entrance. The upscale units also have a fully equipped US-style kitchen, a spacious living and dining area, luxury appointments and central air-conditioning. Offering spectacular views of Simpson Bay, the villa terrace is the perfect spot for sunbathing, sunset cocktails and al fresco dining.
