It’s our 50th Anniversary 16th July
The site of the original family home was once a vast coconut estate where in the 1950s, St Lucian planter, Dennis Barnard built his house on the Malabar Beach. Shortly thereafter, the family decided to extend the property. With 20 bedrooms, The Malabar Beach Hotel that catered to the needs of commercial transient traveller was opened.
In August 1982, Craig Barnard took out a franchise and began operating their hotel as “Couples” – the first all – inclusive resort for the holiday – maker on the island. The franchise, originally taken out for ten years, finally expired in April 1993 and “Rendezvous” – the most intimate, romantic all-inclusive resort for couples only in the Cariibbean was born.
50 Years of Commitment
Since Malabar Beach Hotel opened its doors in 1966, the aim was to provide a truly personalised, intimate and romantic holiday. That vision has never changed. Today, Rendezvous is still an escape for couples from the stresses and strains of everyday life. What better way to celebrate this momentus occasion than with our wonderful guests. On the 16th of July, 2016, join us in celebrating 50 years of continuous service to you!
