About Marigot Beach Club Spa and Wellness Retreat – company background
Marigot Beach Club Spa and Wellness Retreat is a division of Marigot Beach Club and Dive Resort, a villa-style hotel on the north of Marigot Bay, St Lucia.
The hotel and retreat are owned by David Shimeld, a London restaurateur who in 1995 sold his British businesses and moved to St Lucia with the intention of enjoying a peaceful retirement. However, old habits die hard, so it wasn’t long before David was back at work, having bought Marigot Beach Club and Doolittle’s Restaurant and Bar.
Since taking over the business David has made many improvements to the resort, extending its capacity to 34 rooms and villas, with further development planned over the next few years.
David has a keen interest in meditation, fitness and natural health, and takes part in regular meditation sessions with the Art of Living Foundation. In 2012 this inspired David to add health and wellness facilities and activites to the hotel’s offering so that guests can also be inspired by the peace, tranquility and natural beauty of Marigot Bay.
