Construction of Sandals Beaches in Barbados to Start Next Year

Construction of the multi-million-dollar Sandals Beaches hotel in St. Peter is going ahead despite the current bleak economic climate in Barbados.

Sandals International Group Deputy Chairman, Adam Stewart, says this assurance has been given to Prime Minister Mia Mottley during meetings held between the Prime Minister and the Sandals executives.

Stewart and his father, the Founder and Chairman of Sandals, Gordon “Butch” Stewart, were in Barbados for a major Sandals employee event. He confirmed that construction of the US$450 million hotel, the most expensive to be built in the chain, would start on January 1, 2019 and should be completed over a two-year period.
