Soon you’ll be able to stay at Margaritaville next time you’re in St. Thomas, USVI:

The former Renaissance Grand Beach Resort property has been boarded up for years, but Wyndham announced this week that it will soon be given new life as a Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville resort.

Wyndham made the announcement at its quarterly earnings call Wednesday.

Wyndham Worldwide Corporation Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Steve Holmes said Wyndham is excited about partnering with Buffett as a way to grow the timeshare division of the company.

This won’t be the only new Margaritaville resort coming:

We’re very excited to announce that Margaritaville has entered into a partnership with Wyndham Vacation Ownership, the world’s largest vacation ownership company, to create Margaritaville Vacation Club by Wyndham. Wyndham will develop Margaritaville resorts, starting with the conversion of a 34-acre property in St. Thomas, slated to begin later this year. Stay tuned for updates!

What locale would you like to see a Margaritaville resort?

    The wife and I eloped to St. Thomas and stayed at the Renaissance Grand 17 years ago! I serenaded my wife-to-be with a karaoke “Come Monday” in the restaurant.
    We were sad to see it boarded up just a few weeks ago on our first return trip to the island since the wedding. We took our daughter and couldn’t access the property. :/ Would be a dream to get back…

    I proposed to my wife at the Renaissance 19 years ago. In 2015, it will be our 20 year anniversary since she accepted. We would love to revisit & being Buffett fans, would make it that much better. We stayed with my sister at the Wyndham Koloa Landing on Kauai this past year & I can tell you that Wyndham is hitting home runs on their Vacation Club properties. Hope this Club really happens!
