In shambles after 2017 hurricanes, once-tony resort inside Virgin Islands NP faces uncertain future

An idyllic, 170-acre setting inside Virgin Islands National Park is home to the Caneel Bay Resort, a high-end luxury resort with waterside rooms, massage services, weekly cocktail parties, fitness center, tennis courts, and several restaurants. Now in shambles following last fall's hurricanes, the resort's future could hinge on an eight-year-old law passed by Congress and current legislation that would circumvent that law.


Which direction is taken could impede efforts by the resort's owners to obtain financing for improvements, but also impact park natural and cultural resources and slight Laurance Rockefeller's desire to see the facilities donated to the park.
