Desert Star Holdings released a message for the new year, celebrating success in 2017 and looking ahead to 2018. Where St Lucia is concerned, the company said that in the twelve months since the ground-breaking ceremony of the Pearl of the Caribbean, many significant steps have been taken that will see 2018 as a breakout year for DSH Caribbean Star Limited. The company said that the ‘ambitious and exciting’ Master Plan for Sites has been completed and that they hope that approvals will come through this year. The company has completed renovations on its headquarters and notes that the office in Rodney Bay hosts a senior management team that is overseeing the planning of the Pearl of the Caribbean and liaising with government as the company works toward establishing an international standard horse racetrack.
