Government Expresses Condolences on Passing of Windjammer Managing Director

The Government of Saint Lucia expresses its profound sympathy and sincere condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Mark Ozawa, the Managing Director of Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort, who passed away on Saturday, October 29 th 2016. The Government also sends deepest condolences to Senior Executives at EllisDon, owners and operators of Windjammer Landing, including Mr. Geoff Smith and the management and staff of Windjammer Landing on this immense loss.

Mr. Ozawa was appointed as the Managing Director for the luxury award-winning resort in 2010 and has made an immeasurable contribution to the tourism industry in Saint Lucia. Speaking about the death, Prime Minister Honourable Allen Chastanet said: “Our heart goes out to the family and staff of the resort at this time. Windjammer is one of St Lucia’s best performing resorts which continues to stand the test of time. Under Mr. Ozawa’s leadership the resort has seen significant improvements, not just to its infrastructure but also to its level of service. Mark fully integrated into life in Saint Lucia and had a warm and engaging personality. During Mark’s tenure Windjammer became so much more than just a family resort and is now able to successfully compete with other hotels in terms of weddings and retreats. This is undoubtedly a great loss for the industry and my heart goes out to all who knew him.”
