WELCOME BACK,

MAGIC HAITI BRANDED BY
L’IMPRIMEUR S.A.
Dear
Readers,
It continually amazes me when the month of September rolls around, as it
marks Magic Haiti’s anniversary. I am so taken aback, as this 3rd year is as
special for me as the first. So many factors contribute to keeping the
magazine so novel for me.
You, the readers, your phone calls, emails, comments really push us to
provide a better product. I am also inspired by the so many artisans, artists,
designers that I am fortunate enough to meet either in person or through
the poetic articles written by our dedicated writers. And when I actually
or virtually visit a restaurant or hotel, each and every time I am impressed
either by the venue, cuisine, foliage, service, ambiance, but most of all by
the infusion of our rich culture in these establishments. It warms my heart
to know that foreigners have an opportunity to see firsthand the creativity
craftsmanship of our artists and artisans.
Showcasing musicians, writers as well as our historical and natural sites is
truly a privilege that I cherish. One would think that after four years, we
have seen it all, done it all, I realize that we have just begun to scratch the
surface and for this I am grateful. It means that the team gets to share more
of Haiti’s unearthed gems with you. All of these factors motivate, invigorate,
and enable us to renew our commitment to share with you the best that
Haiti has to offer.
In this special issue of Magic Haiti you will have the opportunity to meet
a man who is driven and determined to bring about change. You will find
features on a legendary hotel which was brought back to its splendor, a
dynamic woman who is exporting Haitian art and crafts to some well known
American chain stores, and you will learn about the printing company that
has enabled our articles and photographs to come to life and capture your
attention. So put your feet up, grab a glass put some ice and pour some
Rhum Barbancourt or Cola Couronne and enjoy the read.
Magic Haiti strives to provide you with a variety of enticing possibilities so
that you can take the bull by the horn, carpe diem, just go, discover, indulge,
and become another ambassador of this magical island.
Experience the vibrant colors, unveil numinous places and characters,
immerse yourself in our culture, and emerge enamored!!!

Dear Readers,
The month of October began on a good note. As
of October 2nd, the city of Cap-Haitien (in the North)
welcomed its first American Airlines flight at its Hugo
Chavez International Airport, which currently became
functional after being non-operational for decades.
His Excellence President Michel Martelly as well as
I, arrived in Cap-Haitien aboard the inaugural flight,
where a large loyal delegation ready to witness a new
chapter of history, that of the country’s second
largest city which was being written.
Mrs. Stephanie
Balmir Villedrouin
Minister of Tourism
During the month of October, l'École Hôtelière
d'Haïti (EHH) and the Institut de Formation Hôtelière
et Touristique des Cayes (IFORHT) resumed classes.
We are delighted to be collaborating with World
Central Kitchen to reinforce and implement a new
cooking and baking curriculum.
Training is sector that this government takes to
heart and that is why we are so proud of the
graduation of the 9 young professionals who
returned from Antigua after a two-year training
program in Hospitality and Tourism as part of the
CHTAEF program. These new professionals easily
integrated the workplace and are now employed in
some of the best public and private institutions.
In addition, we have diverse other projects
underway, particularly the Ile à Vache tourism
development, a small paradise located off the
southwest coast of Haiti, about twenty kilometers
from the city of Les Cayes. It aims to attract private
domestic and foreign investment to turn the
island into a tourist destination based on an
integral development approach. To date, more
than thirty activities / projects have been
launched; some are under construction and
others have been completed and opened in the
last few months.
Attention is also being paid to another development project in Côte de Fer which the Ministry
is coordinating. This coastal town south of the
country, hosted the 11th edition of ''Gouvènman
Lakay Ou” this huge event which brings together
around the same table, the Government and the
inhabitants of the host city in order to ascertain
their needs. Of course, other Ministry of Tourism
projects continue to take shape in parallel and
nothing is being overlooked.
We firmly believe that we cannot develop tourism
in Haiti without first developing host communities,
and we are mobilizing all our resources every day to
work in this direction, together with the population for
tourism expansion, sustainable development, and an
emerged Haiti.
Ayiti ap vanse, touris ap bal jarèt.
(Haiti is moving, tourists will assist)
Faisons d'Haïti LA destination de la Caraïbes!
(Let’s Make Haiti the Caribbean Destination)
Chers lecteurs et lectrices,
Le mois d'octobre a débuté sur une belle note.
Déjà le 2ème jour du mois, le Cap Haïtien (Nord du
pays) accueillait le premier vol d'American Airlines
dans son aéroport international dénommé Hugo
Chavéz, récemment remis en état de fonctionnement
après plusieurs décennies de non-opérationnalisation. Son excellence le Président Michel Martelly ainsi
que moi-même, sommes arrivés au Cap à bord de ce
vol inaugural, où nous attendait une grande délégation, fidèle au rendez-vous et prête à être témoin d'un
nouveau chapitre de l'Histoire, celui de la 2e ville du
pays notamment, qui s'écrivait.
Ce mois d'octobre a aussi été le spectateur de
la reprise des cours à l'École Hôtelière d'Haïti (EHH),
et à l'Institut de Formation Hôtelière et Touristique
des Cayes (IFORHT). Nous nous réjouissons de la collaboration à partir de cette année, de World Central
Kitchen, pour le renforcement et l'implémentation
d'un nouveau curriculum de cuisine et de pâtisserie.
La formation est un domaine pris à cœur par ce
Gouvernement, c'est pourquoi nous nous sommes
enorgueillis de la graduation de 9 jeunes professionnels haïtiens, revenus d'Antigua après deux ans de
formation en Hôtellerie et Tourisme, dans le cadre du
programme CHTAEF. Ces nouveaux professionnels se
sont bien intégrés dans le milieu du travail, et sont
placés dans quelques-unes des meilleures institutions privées et étatiques du pays.
À cela, s'ajoutent nos divers autres projets en
cours, particulièrement celui de développement touristique de l'Île à Vache, petit coin de paradis localisé
au large de la côte sud-ouest d’Haïti, à une vingtaine
de kilomètres de la ville des Cayes. Il vise à attirer des
investissements privés nationaux et étrangers pour
en faire une destination touristique selon une approche de développement intégral. À ce jour, plus
d’une trentaine d’activités/projets ont été lancés; certains sont en chantier et d’autres ont été terminés et
inaugurés au cours des derniers mois.
L'attention a été portée ce mois-ci sur un autre
projet de développement que le ministère coordonne, celui de Côte de Fer, ville côtière située au sud du
pays, et qui a accueilli la 11è édition de ''Gouvènman
Lakay Ou'', cette grande manifestation qui réunit
autour d'une même table, le Gouvernement et le
peuple de la ville d'accueil, pour des échanges concernant leurs besoins. Bien entendu, les autres projets du Ministère du Tourisme continuent à prendre
forme en parallèle et rien n'est négligé.
Nous croyons fermement que nous ne pouvons
pas développer le tourisme en Haïti, sans d'abord
développer les communautés d'accueil, et nous mobilisons quotidiennement tous nos moyens, en vue
de travailler en ce sens, de concert avec la population,
pour un tourisme en expansion, un développement
durable, et une Haïti émergée.
Ayiti ap vanse, touris ap bal jarèt.
Faisons d'Haïti LA destination de la Caraïbes !

T
he 4th edition of the Goût
et Saveurs Lakay Festival
was the gastronomy
event of the Fall season.
This year, to everyone’s delight,
a new activity was added – the
PorkFest at La Reserve. And as
usual the kick off at Karibe was
a culinary food extravaganza. If
you did not participate, if you
were not in Haiti the last week
of September, plan to be here
during this incredible week next
year, as you missed a sumptuous
week of great food and spirits.
Every year the organizers
attempt to raise the bar and
they did not disappoint.
Participants were able to
nibble on savory morsels and
dishes at the launch, the many

Many well known and
fashionable restaurants participated in the Festival and they
all took it up a notch. What is
most memorable is the
PorkFest. It enabled all attendees
the opportunity to consume

Lamothe My Everything
“
I wanted to contribute my
time, my knowledge, my
love, because Haiti is my
everything,” says Laurent
Lamothe.
This phrase touched me
By Roxane Kerby | Photos by Philip Hollister
because I too longed to return
to Haiti, and all of us want for
Haiti to resume its place of prestige in the Caribbean.
Every time I had the opportunity to be in his presence,
6 MAGIC HAITI SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2014
I was in awe of his no nonsense,
results oriented and get it done
mode of operation.
I arrived at his house around
lunchtime for our interview and
to my astonishment; he cour-
teously invites me to lunch.
Nervously, I begin the interview. By the second question,
I feel completely comfortable
and realize that Mr. Lamothe’s
down to earth, unassuming yet
strong and omnipresent personality brings about this change.
And now I have a flow as I get
acquainted with this powerful
man who has revolutionized
Haitian politics.
It becomes clear that he is
a driven man, whose discipline
enabled him to achieve success
as a tennis player, as he was
enshrined in the Barry University Athletics Wall of Honor in
2000. As a businessman who
co-founded and served as CEO
of Global Voice Group (provider of technological solutions in emerging markets

my knowledge, my love, because Haiti is
my everything,” Laurent Lamothe.
and developing countries) and
named “Entrepreneur of the
Year 2008" by the firm Ernst and
Young. And as Head of Government, he has established social
programs that have impacted
populations, focused on infrastructure development, and
is promoting Haiti as a tourist
destination.
You get a sense that his
passion for Haiti took root
at a very early age and only
augmented as he became an
adult. Just as I complete the
thought, he shares “From the
time I was a young child, I was
always proud to represent my
country at various tennis tournaments (Davis Cup in 1994
and 1995). I always wanted to
be at the service of my country.
I always wanted to make a difference.”
“I studied political science,
and obtained an MBA (with
honorable mention) from Saint
Thomas University, I came back
to contribute and share what
I learned. I understand that to
make a difference, there are
obvious steps to be taken, you
have to reduce poverty and give

worldwide. “I want for the international community to see
Haiti in its true beauty, to understand why we love her so. That
is why we are putting so much
emphasis on promotion and
we are discouraging naysayers.
We are one people, we are one
country, we have one flag, it’s
a small country, so if we all pull
together, we will succeed. I want
Haitians to regain their sense of
pride.”
Of course Sweet Micky is
one of his favorite bands and
he loves carnival as it brings all
Haitians together and all barriers
are broken. “We walk, dance and
sing together.” His most memorable carnival was in 2008 where
the energy, the vibe and the
food were all on point.
And of course, he has many
favorite places. He loves the
mountains, the beaches, and
December is his favorite time
the people a better tomorrow to
dream of. You have to promote
and market the country, and you
have to have the appropriate infrastructure to receive tourists
and investors alike. You have to
have the best minds in order to
execute the policy of change. It’s
all about results and making a
difference, one successful project at a time.”
Under his leadership, the
ministries are using social media
like never before, monthly ministerial meetings are televised,
and several social programs
including Gouvenman an lakay
ou have been instituted. One
of the first questions I pose Mr.
Lamothe is “What do you want
your legacy to be?” He responds
without hesitating “That we
are remembered as a group of
nationalists who wanted
to make a difference in the
living conditions of the people.
A group of people who began
the country’s reconstruction
and worked day and night without sparing any second, any
minute to bring about positive
change.”
Mr. Lamothe seeks not
only want to change the image
of the country, but he aspires
for its citizens to be respected
8 MAGIC HAITI SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2014
of the year. “I like it because a
lot of the diaspora come back
to celebrate the holiday season
and family members come back
to unite. I think it is a beautiful
time of the year.”
“My fondest childhood
memory was when I represented Haiti in a tennis competition
in the Dominican Republic. I was
ten years old and it was the first
time I was representing Haiti and
I won. I was overwhelmed by a
sense of pride, not of myself, but
rather pride that I had successfully represented my country.”
I learned that during high
school, Mr. Lamothe played
basketball and now it is his
favorite pastime. His favorite
NBA team is the Detroit Pistons
(mind you, this New York Knick
aficionado is not offended that
he likes the Pistons). His brother
Reuben who attended college
in Michigan, often took him to
Pistons games. But the reason
he likes the team so much, is
that in 1998, 1999, Detroit had
a team that characterized hard
work and a no nonsense approach to playing. They did not
have many star players, but they
played as a team.
As this athlete begins to
speak of his daughters, Linka
and Lara, he smiles and his
eyes scintillate. So if he loves
Haiti and Haiti is his everything,
his daughters are not only the
apples of his eyes, but they are
the light of his life. He tells me
about a letter his eldest child
sent him, telling him how much
she loved him, how proud she is
that he is the Prime Minister of
Haiti. Though she may not fully
understand its implication, Mr.
Lamothe says that it warmed his
heart.
This man who loves poisson gros sel is very involved
in his children’s life, he often
visits them in Miami and they
know their country as they
sojourn time and again and
travel whenever possible
with their father throughout
the country. He wants his
daughters to be respectful of
all individuals regardless of their
social status and understand
the importance of family and
education.
As I wrap up, we have been
laughing a lot, completed our
meal, I ask the final question
“Now that you officially represent Haiti the world over and
given our rich culture, what are
you proudest of? What do you
want people to know about our
slice of the world?
Without skipping a beat
he replies, “I want people to
know that there are always two
sides to every story, yes we have
issues, but we also have a beautiful country, a rich culture and
a government who is driven to
bring about change, to make a
difference.”
As our motto states L’Union
fait la force, let’s join hands and
follow his suit. Let’s do our
share. I encourage each one of
us to MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Mon Oasis au centre-ville!

aribbean Craft is a female owned company
based here in Haiti which focuses on handy
craft exports. They not only buy and sell
these crafts, but they also work with artisans
throughout the country to develop new lines and
pieces to showcase and export.
The company was first established by Magalie
Dresse’s husband, upon their return to Haiti. They
wanted to address Haiti’s high unemployment
rate and decided to provide training to artisans in
design and craftsmanship in order to export their
products wholesale. Caribbean Craft provides
direct employment to about 300 individuals and
indirect employment to about 100. 90% of which
are artisans.
Having had the great opportunity to visit
Caribbean Craft's headquarters and speak with
Magalie, their mission to share with people Haiti's
"Also getting a peek at the beautifully
handpainted TOMS didn’t hurt either,
being the shoe lover that I am."
culture through arts and crafts became tangible and I understood the impact it has in
the international market.
Magalie, a petite woman with such
dynamism and passion, shares with me
that in 2006, Caribbean Craft underwent
some significant changes, which helped
the company grow and reach a new level.
All the while remaining true to their mission
to share with the world the diverse beauty of Haitian
art & crafts and continually work with their artisans to
ensure quality.
In 2008 Caribbean Craft invested to participate in
its first trade show in Atlanta, Georgia. It is there that
the company obtained it’s first account with the widely
known chain store HomeGoods.
Since then, they have secured contracts with many
other major companies such as Walmart, TOMS and
West Elm. The company is not
only an Ambassador of Haitian
culture, it is also socially implicated. With funds from West
Elm and the Clinton Foundation, Caribbean Craft was able
to provide a six-month training
to 37 of their artisans through
PRODEV. The program focused
on literacy and on September
30, 2014, the artisans successfully completed the program. “It
is important for us to enrich the
lives of our team,” says Magalie.
It was exciting touring Caribbean Craft, and seeing first-
12 MAGIC HAITI SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2014
hand their mission in action
through every worker implicated in every facet of the
company. From stone carved
pieces to wall accents made
from metal as well as paper
mache and home accessories like vases, stools, furni-
ture, etc. I had an amazing
time discovering each space,
and watching as each craftman
worked with such care.
Caribbean Craft is a
company that can keep up
great demand, and it offers
modern and diverse takes on
traditional Haitian art pieces,
putting Haitian artwork on the
map. Watching the cohesive
creativity and craftsmanship of
the whole team was moving for
me as an art lover. Also getting
a peek at the beautifully hand-
painted TOMS didn’t hurt either,
being the shoe lover that I am.
It is therefore not surprising that the Latin Trade Group,
during its 19th annual "Bravo
Business Awards" ceremony
in October 2013, awarded
Magalie the ''Innovative Social
Sustainability Award 2013” for
her commitment to contribute
to the development of Haitian
art and crafts and for her ability
to connect with major artisans
worldwide.
Caribbean Craft's innovative approach not only exposes
Haitian Culture internationally,
more importantly – it enhances
the lives of so many artisans.

Tchaka
“Kreyòl food with
some alterations”
By Mildred Boivert | Photos by Junior Plesius
14 MAGIC HAITI SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2014
F
rom the moment Yolene
Batroni starts to speak,
you understand that she
is a woman who’s had
many lives. Adapting at every
turn, she is now rooted in her
homeland serving up delicious
traditional meals at her popular
restaurant, Tchaka.
Born in Haiti, she left the
country at the age of eighteen.
Batroni wanted to see the world,
so in 1973 she enlisted in the U.S.
Air Force. She eventually landed
in Spain where she had her first
child and started another chapter in her life. Her journey finally
brought her back to Haiti where
she settled down and became
involved in the family business of
selling wholesale food products.
With her worldly experience, she
right away started thinking of
ways to expand the business,
a task she completed successfully.
After the earthquake,
Batroni’s family business was
destroyed. The mother of four
and grandmother of six knew
above all she did not wish to
leave Haiti. She tried looking for
work, but says her age made it
impossible to reenter an already
challenging job market. Always
the resourceful one, and since
she loved to cook as a young girl,
Batroni went into business with
a cousin. She helped her cousin
open his restaurant Kokoye in
Delmas 31, while running her
own catering company. Batroni
always knew that she wanted to
open her own eatery, so when
the opportunity presented itself, she jumped on it.
At the beginning of this
year, Yolene Batroni fulfilled
a lifelong dream and opened
Tchaka. To do so, she renovated an old ice-cream factory in
Turgeau. Many new restaurants
are popping up in that area, but
Tchaka stands out for its quaint
cultural charm, and the savory
authentic comfort foods it
offers. The interior is eclectically
decorated with original remnants of the restaurant’s past life
and several of the owner’s keepsakes, like beer mugs on the
wall from her time in Germany.
From the moment you step in
the iron doors, the friendly and
attentive staff makes you feel as
if you are among family.
Batroni describes the
cuisine as “Kreyol food with
some alterations.” I believe
the boeuf stroganoff I noticed
on the menu was one of those
“alterations”. While the Plat du
Jour menu changes every two
weeks, you can always find all
your favorite traditional Haitian
foods such as rice and beans,
poisson gros sel, bouillon (soup),
and many others. Tchaka uses
only the freshest seafood and
exclusively locally grown produce. It is very important for
Batroni that they support local
merchants.
The house specialty though
is TCHAKA of course! And what
is Tchaka? It’s a hearty stew
made with beans, pumpkin, and
salted meat whose origins date
back to slavery. The restaurant
boasts two varieties, one recipe
from Cap-Haitien and one from
the Thiotte area; one has turkey
and the other, pork. Batroni
tells me that her clientele is very
particular about their tchaka so
she was forced to make both
to satisfy everyone. I’m not an
expert myself, so you’ll have to
come down and decide which
one is your favorite. I recommend the garlic shrimp, any
of the freshly made juices on
the menu, and the fish fingers
with corn flake breading as an
appetizer.
If you are looking for
authentic Haitian feel-goodfood made with love food, you
have to check out Tchaka.
Tchaka is located at #3 Rue Faustin
in Turgeau and can be reached at
22305713.

Welcome Back,
El Rancho
Escapade

T
here’s barefoot luxury, and
then there’s stiletto luxury.
El Rancho manages to combine
two very different traveling
styles, albeit with an unabashed tendency
towards grandeur. Haiti welcomes the
return of this enduring muse. After nearly
four years of grooming, it re-opens its
doors impeccably polished and ready for
a dynamic future.
El Rancho became a touristic icon
after former owner, Albert Silvera,
converted his private estate into a
hotel. Back then, Mr. Silvera would
park his 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB and
stroll down the dramatic tunneled
entrance with a long-legged companion on each arm. The likes of American
movie star, Elizabeth Taylor and rocker,
Mick Jagger used to relish Caribbean
getaways here. Konpa king,
Sweet Micky enjoyed playing
Wild 52 at the El Rancho Casino
as well as performing to soldout crowds. Half a century of
entertaining Port-au-Prince’s
well-heeled bon vivants
earned El Rancho a special
place in the city’s lore.
El Rancho’s renaissance
is now in full swing. Though
financial difficulties required
the property to close in 2009,
and then the 2010 earthquake gravely damaged the
buildings, a group of investors stepped up to execute
a lofty vision. These investors first banned together
back in 2002 to transform a
repossessed Sogebank property on Route de Frères into
an upscale apartment building.
The project was such a success
that they stuck together under
the name Société Immobilière
et Financière SA (SIF). The group
took notice of the El Rancho
property and partnered with
the Silvera family to reconstruct and modernize the
hotel. Pierre-Marie Boisson,
one of the project’s chief
advisors as well as an investor, says “There are higher
returns for investments in
places like Haiti, because of
the high demand. The key is
a reliable group to manage
the investment.”
They have restored the
brilliant white tunnel to its
original splendor and added
surprising new garnishes such
as an impressive chandelier,
reception desk covered with
glossy cow horn and a chic
outdoor bar strategically
placed to serve new arrivals
and bathers. Since October
SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2014 MAGIC HAITI 17
of 2013, guests flock in once
again to pass sojourns of fruitful business and pleasure.
Under the Spanish franchise, NH Hoteles, the NH Haiti
El Rancho, receives patrons with
double pristine swimming pools,
fine-dining restaurants, extensive exercise areas complete
with tennis courts, and wellequipped business centers.
Six conference rooms can accommodate up to 275 guests
18 MAGIC HAITI SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2014
each while outdoor areas
can host hundreds for concerts such as during the 8th
Festival International de Jazz
de Port-au-Prince. The Hotel
now offers accommodation
in 114 rooms, many of which
are handicap accessible on
20 acres of land.
Eventually some of the

This year the 3rd edition of the
Gout et Saveurs Lakay Cocktail
Competition was contested
at Les Palms Residence in
Pétion-Ville. The competition,
which centers on creating
a new cocktail to represent
Haiti, is open to amateurs
and professionals. As is the
custom, contestants
incorporate event sponsor and
local liquor, Rhum Barbancourt
into every concoction.
Mixologists were quite creative
using other local elements
such as lime, sugar cane,
passion fruit, and pineapple.

Magic Haiti Branded by
L’IMPRIMEUR S.A.
A
By Rachele Viard | Photos by Frederick Alexis
s Magic Haiti is celebrating
its third anniversary, it is
only fitting that we had a sit
down with Mikael Chauvet,
Executive Director of L’Imprimeur S.A.,
to speak about his family’s tradition
in the printing business. Five generations of the Chauvet family have made
printing their business with a mission
to produce quality products including
our very own, Magic Haiti.
This printing heritage began
with Henri Chauvet, Mikael’s great
great grandfather. Through the years,
L’Imprimeur has adapted to modern
advances in the industry in order
to keep up with new technologies
and more importantly to meet the
" L'Imprimeur S.A. strives to provide
quality services that surpass
its client's expectations "
demands of its clients. The
company continually enhances
its services, which has enabled
it to grow within an everchanging environment. “Our
printing specialties include
catalogs, magazines, calendars, receipts, flyers, tourism
guides, and books,” Mikael
says with a glint of pride in
his eyes.
After the loss of equip-
ment and some structural
damages, production came
to a halt after the earthquake of 2010. They took the
opportunity to regroup and
refocus in order to strategize
and ascertain how they could
come back stronger than ever.
Maintaining their mission for
excellence, customer satisfaction and a desire to give each
client’s job a personal touch,
L’Imprimeur S.A. reopened
its doors and is now expanding
its office.
As I toured the facilities,
the phrase ‘well-oiled machine’
comes to mind. Mikael’s
guided tour enabled me to
better understand the production process. It gave me a
new appreciation of what it
takes to get each Magic Haiti
issue out, from the artwork
to the final product, and the
integral role L’Imprimeur
24 MAGIC HAITI SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2014
plays as part of the Magic
Haiti team.
At
the
helm
of
L’Imprimeur since 2007,
Mikael has developed an
eye for detail, and his clear
vision to innovate has
brought the company to the
digital age. He has recently
acquired new equipment,
which speeds up the printing
process and enables them to
exceed the expectations of
their loyal clientele in quality and delivery time.
The commercial printing company also places
strong emphasis on professional development which
directly correlates to quality
end products. It comprises a
staff of dedicated employees,
many of whom have been
with the company for more
than 20 years, such as the
Assistant Director, Therese
Abouzeide.
With the motto “we’re
big enough to efficiently
produce any printing job,
but small enough to provide
personal service,” it is
clear that the company is
dedicated to integrity and
diligence in all aspects of
customer service. Not to
be biased, I believe the
quality and caliber of work
that L’Imprimeur delivers is
reflected in each and every
issue of Magic Haiti.
I know that I can speak
on behalf of the entire Magic
Haiti team and say that it has
been a pleasure to work with
L’Imprimeur S.A. for the past
three years. I believe the
high quality of production
bring the magazine’s articles
and photographs to life for
you our readers.
A conversation with
L’Imprimeur S.A. will confirm
that it is the company for
your printing needs.

Villa Mimosa
Emerald of the South
By Lara Elie-Joseph |
Photos by Junior Plesius Louis
H
ow very often do we
travel the world in
quest of exoticism, in
search of wonder, waiting for our spirit to be amazed
and lifted? How very often do we
seek fortunes in far away destinations, when all along we have
been sitting on a diamond mine.
Think about it, when was the last
time you looked far and wide
for answers to your burdens
and problems, when the answer has been all along in
the palm of your hands? We are
a Magic Haiti. Look close enough
and you will uncover the unique,
the amazing and the breathtaking right here, all around you.
Thirsty for beauty and for
natural wealth? Are you craving
total relaxation, breaking away
from your daily routine? The
answer is within your reach. Hop
in your car, start the engine and
come discover. Your destination,
the South!
What I bring to you today
lies in the commune of Torbeck
just west of Les Cayes on Haiti’s
long southern peninsula. Your
26 MAGIC HAITI SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2014
four hour drive from Port-auPrince will reveal before your
eyes, majestic verdant vistas,
at times surprised by an ocean
view or refreshed with rivers
dancing to the rhythm of the
sun. Our stop will be an emerald oasis well worth your while:
Hotel Villa Mimosa. The hotel is
surrounded with lush gardens,
one plant more exotic than the
other.
On the property, alarge
swimming pool awaits to
embrace your body, while
you indulge in total escape
from urban noise.Enjoy the
shade of a mango tree or bask in
the sun while birds generously
serenade. When hunger strikes,
you can choose from a variety
of Kreyòl dishes, a cuisine filled
with rich flavors. Griot, cabrit,
chicken, seafood, and more, take
your pick and be sure to be delighted with your gastronomical
experience. The hotel receives
guests in twenty-five rooms
and suites and can be part of a
romantic getaway, as well as a
family retreat or a rendezvous
with friends.
At Hotel Villa Mimosa,
you are provided with a nice
environment, punctuated by
impeccable cleanliness. But
truthfully all of this would be
meaningless if it wasn’t com-
plemented with outstanding
service. The staff is one of the
most welcoming I have met so
far. Making sure that your every
need is attended to, your well
being is their mission. I had the
privilege to meet some of their
staff members. Their enthusiasm
and eagerness to participate in
the touristic development of the
area is remarkable.
Meet Emmanuella Geffrard,
General Manager. She enjoys
and loves working Villa Mimosa.
“The Hotel is young,” she says,
“and there are plans to expand.”
She informs that the hotel sits
on many hectares of land, with
another coastal property, just a
short distance away. One project
is to build an attraction park for
SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2014 MAGIC HAITI 27
children, a novelty in the South.
Mimosa also plans to develop
bungalows right on the beach
along with seaside restaurant to
accommodate hotel clients as
well as day visitors. Emmanuella
is thrilled to be part of the staff
and part of the growth and
potential offered by the Villa in
the promotion of local tourism.
But who I wondered is at
the essence of such great desire
to work towards the develop-
ment of the South? Who was
the hand that put together such
a great team all committed to
the same goals and dreams of
taking actions towards a better
Haiti? Well, her name is Marie
Mimose Felix. A warm woman
with a unique spirit and sparkling eyes. I couldn’t help being
moved by her love for Haiti and
even more so by her ability to
realize long term objectives. She
had a vision, she had a dream to
be a footprint on our sands and
she succeeded through the
creation of the Hotel.
Agronomist by profession,
she offers her soul and her body
to the island. A woman of many
dreams and aspirations, she feels
very strongly about creating as
many jobs as possible and wants
to be the pride of Torbeck.
“Money cannot and should
not be a goal,” she continues.
“Rather the question is what I
can do for my community. The
convergence of personal interests and collective well-being is
crucial for a better society.”
A hotel filled with good
spirit and purpose, Hotel Villa
Mimosa holds within its walls,
many stories and a vibrant
future. Be part of greatness, and
help develop the South with
your visit. Explore, discover, and
remember…pass it along!
