Former Canary Hotel general manager Laura McIver has been appointed to the same position for the El Encanto Hotel, which was closed for renovation in 2006.

Orient Express announced that it had secured a construction loan of $45 million last November to continue expansion and renovation of the 92-bungalow resort.
