Sandals Resorts International has signed a memorandum of understanding to build Sandals and Beaches resorts on Tobago, said chairman Butch Stewart.
It would be the company’s first resorts on the island, one half of the twin-island republic of Trinidad and Tobago in the southern Caribbean. Stewart describes the resort site as “magnificent.”
“We look forward to being a part of the Tobago hotel community as it’s a place I have been interested in for 14 years. It’s an incredible island with warm people and they have a lovely hotel community,” said Stewart.
He also said, “We have been very comfortable dealing with the various officials on the island and look forward to what the future holds.” Sandals has been in negotiations with Tobago for more than a year. The Tobago Hotel and Tourism Association said, “The majority of our members welcome Sandals coming to Tobago because of the additional flights and increased destination marketing which it would provide.”
