Would you please post any updates on Club O?


I think our position is the same as many others. We long for any information on Club O. It was our home away from home for so many years.

Are you on the island and if so could you ask Cedric?

Do you know an owner who might update?

It might be a great ongoing thread and bring some current activity to this forum.

We are planning on May and we will do what we can.

carib cheers,
doctorj

Maybe I'm not using the forum right but I don't see any replies to your post. Have you heard from anyone?

Our last trip was fall 2019 had a great time.

Buffboater,
Unfortunately I have not received any responses. This forum lost its steam when it changed format. Not really user friendly. 73 days and counting.

Looks like there is some encouraging news on the Club O website. The Club Orient Resort FB page posted this about an hour ago: https://www.facebook.com/ClubOrient/posts/3882765011770405

It directs you to the Club O website but you have to dig a bit for the info. It's in the FAQ section: https://www.cluborient.com/rebuild/

The timeline forecasts rebuilding starts in Fall 21 if the revised permit that was submitted last month is approved. It sounds like the architects/engineers are working closely with the buiding code agency to ensure they've addressed all of the issues raised. I was losing hope... this is welcomed news. Fingers crossed!!!
There is new information at www.cluborient.com You have to look under FAQ. Here is a link https://www.cluborient.com/rebuild/

We'll be there in May.
Great news.
I don't read that as Club O will definitely reopen. First permission has to be given by the government. Maybe I missed something but the government, after Irma, decided to forbid building at Club O and at Sandy Ground. Maybe that has changed.

Requests for permits have been submitted. We will see what happens, but remember, everything happens on Island time, mon.

Hey doctorj, we'll be there in 80 days.
Somewhere in the FAQ is says they will be allowed to rebuild any building that was there before the hurricane, with some moved back from the beach.
It's not final until the permits are issued, but it looks like they do have government permission.

That is great news. After all this time i don't think they would be so forthcoming with all this info if they didn't think it would be a go. My .02, your mileage may vary.

Christa, i think after all those protests awhile back, a representative from France came to the island and they revised the PPRN, which made it more friendly for rebuilding in these storm damage prone zones. Time will tell. Island time that is! smile


Life's a beach!

That would be the Waterfront Chalets. They were right on the beach. They were our favorite, and in 15 years, they are the only ones we stayed in. We have fond memories there and stayed in all of them except #50,* and stayed in some of them twice.

If Club O is rebuilt, we may go back again. I have to stay out of the sun because of three bouts with skin cancer, but there are other things to do.

* We actually may have stayed in #50 early in our visits there, but in later years, the owners had a falling out with management and took it off the rental rotation. They all kind of run together after that many years.

54 days, baby. We have to walk down the beach from Orient Beach Hotel, but its well worth the stroll. Hope they rebuild this thing before we're too old to give a damn.
There should be one hell of a welcome back partysmile
We will be there!

Does anyone know the cost of the required insurance to go to St Martin? Just trying to get my ducks in a row. Thanks.
