What is the current status of 'Southlands'?
After an apparently successful 15-month campaign to preserve the pristine ‘Southlands’ estate as a national parkland, the agreed land swap between the Bermuda Government and Southlands Ltd. appears to be in serious jeopardy. Southlands Ltd says: “We are going to Morgan’s Point.” The Government says the deal is falling away. BEST is actively monitoring and engaging in these developments. Watch this site for the latest updates and calls to action.

Top hotel is needed to complete Morgan's Point deal
The Royal Gazette
Government wants Southlands Ltd. to get a five-star hotel chain on board for Morgan's Point before the land exchange is completed, The Royal Gazette can reveal.
A Government spokesman told this newspaper yesterday that the Southlands owners have indicated that their multi-million dollar resort on the former baselands in Southampton is likely to be a Ritz-Carlton, due to their development partner John Ryan's relationship with the brand. But the spokesman said a firmer commitment was needed.
Meanwhile, Ritz-Carlton spokesman Vivian Deuschl said: "I have no indication this development is more than speculative and rumours."
A Southlands Ltd. spokeswoman said: "The Southlands team will be well-positioned to attract a five-star brand once the land swap is completed."
