Near the Equator restaurant, restoration of an old plantation house continues. Meanwhile, out at the entrance, an impressive new structure is being built.
The entrance to Caneel has had a small entry building for many years. More often than not, no one was on duty. If someone was, they were courteous and friendly when, as an outsider, you might arrive to visit the beach bar and responsibly use the beach at the resort.
Now, it looks like they're maybe getting serious about security. The project underway looks like there will be a main building between entry and exit roads, with small structures on either side of those roads, too. The architecture is island traditional.
Let’s hope that when it’s open the Resort’s welcome and open attitude persists, despite the “gated community” look it will give.
