I dropped in to check on our property today. Walking through our beautiful Sea Breeze Beach House was like walking through a movie set — the gardens a riot of color, the sea every imaginable shade of blue from turquoise to cerulean, the sand as white as talcum powder, waves lapping on an endless pristine beach — everything perfect, but with one exception: No people.  

The beating heart of a hotel is the people — our wonderful teams and treasured guests. As I walked through the gardens and along the beach, all I wanted was to blink my eyes and wake up from this suspended state and be surrounded once again by the laughter, the smiles, the warmth and the people that super charge our beautiful spaces and bring them to life. We’ll be right here waiting!
