Belize’s oldest serving luxury hotel, the Radisson Fort George Hotel and Marina, has once again pushed for excellence as it has completed $850,000 worth of renovations for its Villa Wing.
Renovations began in May 2008 and included the refurbishment of 27 standard rooms, the Le Petit Cafe, the Villa Lobby, Gym and the Business Centre.
The hotel’s chief executive officer, James Scott, told the Reporter that the focus of the renovation is to deliver the highest quality product and services for all guests.
“Now with the renovations being completed, it further supports our brand commitment to be the premier leader in class and guest satisfaction,” said Scott.
All 27 rooms have been refurbished with new linens and tiles, giving the rooms a new look, with a warm and inviting atmosphere. Visitors can now experience the Le Petit Cafe with the comfort of air-conditioning indoors, or the option of open air dining in the villa lobby. Today the ambiance is more relaxing, with more seating space and a wide variety of items to choose from the menu at the cafe.
Shamra Thompson, the cafe’s manager, told the Reporter that guests complained that the cafe was too small – hence the expansion. Scott noted that since the completion of the renovation a month ago, business increased by much as 15 percent.
The gym and business centre were also renovated. The Lamanai Fitness Centre, was previously limited to guests, but of recent, limited membership has been open to the public and will be given on a first-come, first-served basis. The Caucus Room, which housed the Business Centre, has also been updated with internet facilities and a photocopy machine.
The Radisson Fort George Hotel, set on the coast of Belize City, is an award-winning hotel that is located within a convenient distance from cultural and commercial attractions in the city.
The lavish hotel amenities make it an ideal choice in lodging for both leisure and business guests visiting Belize.
