CHARLOTTE AMALIE, ST. THOMAS, USVI (September 19, 2012) — Bluebeard’s Castle Resort, professionally managed by SPM Resorts, recently unveiled two new observation decks providing picturesque views of the cruise ship dock in the bay below the resort, as well as the mega yacht marina of the Yacht Haven Grand Marina Complex. Already well-known for their prime location atop Bluebeard’s Hill in St. Thomas, resort guests and other St. Thomas visitors frequently flock to this location to take in the sights of the island around them.
“The observation decks have been very well received,” said Mikhail Shamkin, general manager for Bluebeard’s Castle resort. “We have already had three wedding receptions on the upper observation deck. In addition to our observation decks, our prime location affords visitors the most scenic views of downtown Charlotte Amalie on one side of the property, and overlooks the water on the other. You can’t get better views of the sunsets than right here at Bluebeard’s Castle.”
The new observation decks are an added bonus to the property, which recently underwent a multi-million dollar renovation. Renovations included an overhaul of the lobby complete with new furniture, fixtures, fresh paint and check-in pods. The rooms included in the renovations received updated kitchens, bathrooms, furniture, accessories, flat panel televisions, bedding and more. All rooms on property received state-of-the-art RFID Ving Card door locks and in-room safes to further enhance guest security. The courtyard areas have been newly landscaped and new outdoor furniture installed.

About Bluebeard’s Castle:
Bluebeard’s Castle is a historic property dating back to the 1600s. The Castle is located high on a hilltop with spectacular views overlooking the harbor and town of Charlotte Amalie. Its signature red rooftops are among the first sights for arriving cruise ship passengers in the harbor below. The resort includes a centuries-old fortress bearing the name ‘Bluebeard’ after stories (none substantiated) connected the pirate with the tower. Today, the stone tower is encircled by pristine accommodations, garden walkways and courtyards with the most scenic view on the islands. The resort’s location provides easy access to St. Thomas’ myriad of activities, including dining, shopping, snorkeling and more. Bluebeard’s Castle is a timeshare and whole owner property divided up into four owners’ associations. The resort includes studio and one- and two-bedroom suites. SPM Resorts began managing the property in 2004. Since that time, the associations have undertaken major renovations to restore the property to its elegant heritage. www.bluebeardscastles.com
