The Privatization Specialist  pointed out that the repairs and renovations totalled millions but quickly stressed that the resort will benefit in a long term way. “We spent millions to get this place ready and I am happy to say that we remain confident that in time we will reap the long term benefits of the works done. Skeldon Heritage Resort has not lost from this investment and fortunately we will continue to reap from this work and timely investment,” Henry noted.  Henry said that because of the major renovations and refurbishment, the resort stands firmly ready to host major and larger events. She said that a number of rooms saw ACs being installed, while several of the rooms were transformed into self-contained rooms.
