The following St.Thomas properties will be closed until 2019:

Other resorts will likely open in 2018, with February seeing quite a few reopenings:

Resort owners and personnel will likely even see some reopenings this year:

While many of those in the hospitality industry are out of work for the time being, those in other trades are being employed in large numbers to help with repair efforts, according to St.Thomas Governor Kenneth Mapp.

The aforementioned reopening timelines are predictions which may change. USVIHTA President Lisa Hamilton stated the following:

“The closure of the largest properties in the territory at the same time is not ideal, but it presents opportunities for us to renovate and update the tourism product. And while the hotels focus on revealing a polished, new product, USVIHTA will continue to promote properties and members who came out of the storms with minimal damage. Many of our members are up and running and ready to welcome guests today. However, restoring the territory’s infrastructure, airport and hospitals is essential prior to welcoming visitors back.”

She added:

“Everyone is invested in creating a renewed and re-energized product, even those who are still assessing damages. The focus on community and human capital is paramount.”
