Cotton Bay Village Resort in Cap Estate was forced to close its doors on Tuesday, September 23 after its electricity was disconnected by the St. Lucia Electrical Services Limited (LUCELEC) over non- payments.
According to a source, a number of guests were transported to other hotels while employees were sent home.
Guests are now staying at the Bay Gardens Resorts and Spa and the Coco Palm Hotel.
Corporate Communications Manager of LUCELEC Roger Joseph has confirmed with the media that the hotel electricity supply was disconnected for outstanding arrears dating back several months ago.
Reliable sources at the electrical company said the decision came on the heels of numerous warnings to the hotel to clear its bills in arrears.
This publication was unable to get a comment from an official of the hotel as calls went unanswered.
