"We are in a redesign. It won't affect when it will open. We are still on schedule but we just thought we were wasting so much space with the original design," says Stewart of the estimated $4 million project.

Groundbreaking is set to commence in roughly two weeks with completion slated for about nine months from now, Stewart says.

The original design was going to be identical to plans for over the water suites in St. Lucia, a project that has been temporarily halted. Stewart says the new design will include an outdoor sitting area with outdoor jacuzzis.
