I believe that both the Tamarind Beach Hotel and its larger sister resort, Carenage Beach Hotel, are both closed until further notice. The last info I had is that Carenage changed ownership and Tamarind had a fire.

For those who care, both these places are bitterly resented by the locals who were displaced from their land and their economy when these hotels were built. Apparently the government of the day sold off half the island to the international developers for peanuts and promises. I can't testify to whether the deal was as bad as painted, but as a 'before and after' visitor, I have certainly seen the deterioration in the local culture.

When was the fire at Tamarind? One of my co-workers was booked at Carenage for next week, but because they're closing, the management offered to move them to Tamarind (they are now owned by the same people). They are supposed to be there this week....

To X: I don't know exactly when the fire was, but as of this past winter, there didn't seem to be much happening by way of repairs. I have emailed a friend of mine who lives on the island to get more current information and will post an update.

Good news. My friend says the Tamarind Beach Hotel IS open (in fact the reception desk was open early in the morning, which is positive. Presumably the fire damage (which was to the thatched roofing) has been repaired.

This message is for curiousx...

I'm trying to contact the Crystal Sands Beach Hotel (aka Crystal apartments). All the phone numbers, fax numbers and email addresses I have don't work. Even the ones I got from the Tourist bureau don't work!

Could you contact your friend,who lives on Canouan, to see if he/she can find out any info (email, phone #s) on this place?

Thanks very much,
Lori
