TARGET DATE SET FOR CONSTRUCTION OF BEACHES PROJECT
Wednesday 19th March 2014

Dickenson Bay, Antigua March 19, 2014; Construction work on the Beaches project in Antigua should commence between the months of April and May next year. That's according to Sandals Chairman the Hon. Gordon "Butch" Stewart.

While speaking to a group of Antigua and Barbados journalists on a tour of Beaches Turks and Caicos, Mr. Stewart gave an update on the project air-marked for both countries.

On Antigua, the Chairman explained, "We have started the ground work but in terms of physical work, we are looking at around April/May. We will start off with the building of the cays and suites and move on to the attractions such as an ice-skating rink (a first), waterpark slides, a cinema, an X Box lounge, sesame street camp and other features you have seen firsthand."

The Chairman of the Sandals/Beaches chain further commented that, "The family resort product has done wonderful things for TCI and it will do greater things for the people of Antigua and Barbuda."

The benefits to the Turks and Caicos have included a yearly contribution of US $93million to the economy, US $1.9million to cab drivers, US $10.9 million towards utilities and US $37million in Payroll.

Mr. Stewart, who has a special relationship with Antigua, having exported Sandals here first, told journalists he has built strong partnerships over the years and is proud to promote the twin-island destination and Sandals when traveling the world.

"I love Antigua. It's just a beautiful island with great people and I know Beaches will add to the development of the country. Already, Sandals earns more foreign currency and provides more employment than any other private company. We have partnerships with taxi drivers, tour operators, shopping centres, vendors, farmers, etc. This will significantly increase with the presence of Beaches. The future of Antigua and Barbuda looks great", Stewart added.

Beaches Antigua will be built on the site of Grand Pineapple and will boast 1-4 bedroom suites, up to 12 restaurants, conferencing facilities and a wide range of exhilarating and unique features. The opening of the US$150million resort will also triple employment currently at GPA to over 700 in addition to hundreds of construction jobs.
