The land on which the hotel sits has a fascinating history. In its early Danish days it was used for loading and off-loading of ships’ goods, in the 19th century there was a warehouse on the seaside, and in 1946 the Christiansted Utilities Company was established on the site and operated there until the 1960’s. In 1967 Mr. Wnty Hilty, an artistic man from Denmark, leased the land from Norman Skeoch and built Hotel Caravelle. The 43-room hotel, designed to reflect the 18th century Danish style of architecture, opened with great anticipation and success.
