ST. THOMAS — The owner of Frenchman’s Reef resort on St. Thomas has confirmed that the property will reopen in 2020 under the Marriott hotel brand.

The resort had been a Marriott- branded property before the 2017 hurricanes caused severe damage to its buildings and infrastructure, and the hotel faced an uncertain future after closing for renovations.
