Visitors staying on St. Thomas or just passing through are welcome at the Yacht Haven Grande Welcome Center & Complimentary Baggage Check. While at the Welcome Center, guests enjoy the "Spin to Win" prize wheel, personalized concierge service, YHG Smooth Sailing Punch (you can even take the recipe home with you!), take pictures with pirates, and receive the latest information on deals and specials at YHG shops.
Many patrons drop their luggage and go on to enjoy the beach, shopping, or a leisurely lunch. The best part: if you have a late flight or ferry on your departure date, you are within a comfy walk of eateries, and shops, in a pleasant atmosphere.
Guest Services Coordinator Joy Matheny (above, right - view more photos on our Facebook page) hosts regular open house events for area Concierges in conjunction with the "Jazz Haven" series, every third Saturday of the month and Anita and Luanda were on hand on June 16th to mix and mingle and enjoy a breezy night of Jazz by Pasado Meridiano from San Juan Puerto Rico.
Smiling broadly, Matheny welcomed many to the Welcome Center, offering snacks and soft drinks, and for the adults, a bit of the special Smooth Sailing Punch featuring Cruzan Strawberry rum. Local artwork and photography (all for sale) graces the walls of the tropical-themed station.
"We're here to not only introduce everyone to all that we have at Yacht Haven Grande, but to provide a service," she said. "Your last day here should be just as perfect as the rest of your vacation!"
The Yacht Haven Grande Welcome Center is located at the west end of YHG near the pool; easy taxi drop-off/pick off. Hours of operation: Saturday – Wednesday from 9am-5pm and closed on Thursdays & Fridays
