Now that the hurricanes have passed, numerous Harper members have contacted us to express concern about their favorite Caribbean properties. Here is the most up-to-date information we have on all 40 Harper-recommended properties in the region. We will continue to update this list as more information flows in.

If you would like to donate to local recovery efforts, please read our “Hurricane Relief and Recovery” story for suggestions. Many of the hotels below also recommend places to donate on their individual Facebook pages.

Here at Andrew Harper, our hearts go out to everyone affected by the hurricanes in the Caribbean. Donations certainly help, but the livelihoods of thousands in the region depend on tourism. The best way to support these properties and their staffs is to visit them.

Amanyara, Turks & Caicos

Status: Closed for the season; reopening as scheduled on November 1, 2017
“Amanyara was closed for scheduled maintenance works during the month of September, which meant we had no guests or staff in residence. Therefore, we were able to prepare for Hurricanes Irma and Maria. As a result, Amanyara weathered both storms with minimal impact, and our efforts remain focused on the personal needs of our staff, their families and local community.”

Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France, St. Barths

Status: Closed
“Following Hurricane Irma’s path through Saint-Barthélemy, the Maison is temporarily closed. LVMH Hotel Management is relieved to confirm that the teams of Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France are safe. No guests were at the Maison as the storm passed during the annual closure. It is currently too early to determine the reopening date of Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France.”

Petit St. Vincent Private Island, St. Vincent and the Grenadines

Status: Closed for the season; reopening as scheduled on November 1, 2017 
“PSV was not affected by the recent storms in the Caribbean region. Thanks to our very southerly location, the island is outside of the hurricane belt. Our thoughts are with all those who have been affected by these storms. We know that this beautiful part of the world will soon bounce back from these challenging times. We very much look forward to welcoming all our guests to PSV at the start of this season next month.”

Rosewood Little Dix Bay, British Virgin Islands

Status: Closed until further notice 
“Although Rosewood Little Dix Bay was closed and under construction, the resort did sustain damage and therefore will not re-open this December as originally planned. At this time, we are still assessing the effects Hurricane Irma had on the resort and do not yet have a new re-opening date.”  

Necker Island, British Virgin Islands

Status: Closed indefinitely 
Severe structural damage. “At present time, Necker Island is working to recover from the devastating effects of Hurricane season. Plans to re-build are underway and our latest news can be found here. Guests can look forward to white sandy beaches, luxurious accommodation, water sports, top-class food and the holiday of a lifetime.”  

Hôtel Le Toiny, St. Barths

Status: Closed until further notice
Primarily just exterior damage. “We have a lot of work to do to make sure that the hotel sparkles as normal and it is clear that we will not be able to reopen in time for the beginning of the new season in November. We will keep you in close contact with progress.”  

Belmond La Samanna, St. Martin

Status: Closed until further notice
Significant exterior and structural damage. “We are currently assessing the nature and extent of the damage sustained on property and based on our assessment at this time, we do not anticipate that Belmond La Samanna will open until at least April 2018.”   

Belmond Cap Juluca, Anguilla

Status: Closed
No major damage. The resort was already in the process of remodeling. “Belmond Cap Juluca will be undergoing renovations as previously disclosed and based on our assessment at this time, we do not anticipate that it will open before November 15, 2018.”  

The Meridian Club, Turks & Caicos

Status: Closed for the season; reopening as scheduled on November 1, 2017
“As we are presently closed for our yearly summer renovations, our clean up and repairs are uninterrupted and going well. As such, we expect to remain on schedule, and are excited to keep moving towards our planned reopening on November 1, 2017.”  

The Dunmore, Bahamas

Status: Open

Belle Mont Farm, St. Kitts and Nevis

Status: Reopening April 2018
“We were fortunate that the resort sustained no major structural damage; however, we will need to make needed repairs due to wind and water damage. While we would have liked to have opened earlier, due to the extensive rebuilding happening across the Caribbean, the logistics required to restore the property to the level of luxury and service our guests expect from the resort and the destination of Anguilla, will require this additional time.” 

Peninsula House, Dominican Republic
