The government has in its possession, a written plan for the expansion of Sandals Grande Antigua
The renowned resort intends to add an additional 107 new rooms to the existing plant at Dickenson Bay
According to notes from Wednesday’s Cabinet, the Minister of Tourism Charles Fernandez reported that Sandals is also adding a reverse osmosis plant to provide sufficient potable water for its guests.
He told his Cabinet colleagues that Sandals has also submitted plans for overwater bungalows; that request will be assessed by the Department of the Environment.
Meanwhile, Fernandez reported that the Hermitage Hotel is also planning to expand since the demand for its high-quality service exceeds the current supply of rooms.
“The same financiers who have provided the capital for Hermitage are also financing the NOBU Hotel on Barbuda. Antigua and Barbuda’s tourism is growing,” he said.
