To Members and Friends

Today is the first day of the new year, and I wish to greet all of our members and friends a very happy 2013. This will not be a very long letter since I am still a little bit hungover from the fabulous New Year’s Eve party that we had here at the island last night. The feedback from 250 members and guests that were here in the party was consistently favourable.

As you know, we have accomplished quite a bit this past year and by the end of the first quarter of 2013, all 292 rooms and villas will have been completed. This is more than 50 villas/rooms than the 240 which we originally promised. I also expect that we will have the British Aerospace Jetstream 41 (29 passengers) at your disposal very soon. By Easter, I expect to have Balesin Island Club 100% operational, some 8 months ahead of schedule.

It has been an extremely busy holiday season which will continue until this coming weekend. All in all, over the 12-day peak period, we have had more than 2,000 members and guests that have enjoyed the island. However, many missed the best part of all, last night’s New Year’s Eve party! I enclose some photos of the festivities of last night, and for those of you who were not here, you can see what you missed! 

Again, all the best for the New Year.
