Several media outlets have reported that Gordon "Butch" Stewart, chairman of Sandals Resorts International, recently partnered with Keith Mitchell, Grenada’s prime minister, to invest $10 million in the expansion of Sandals LaSource Grenada by the summer of 2016.
According to the Antigua Observer, during a ground breaking ceremony last week, the duo unveiled plans to expand the resort, which currently spans 32 luxury suites to house 257 lagoon nature reserve suites.
“We have had the most extraordinary two years in Grenada where we see the demand for our brand and this destination, soar," Stewart told media. "So we have decided to invest more in our product here, in an effort to meet the high demand the international travel trade has placed on us for Grenada."
He added that some 150 construction jobs will be created as a result of the expansion efforts, with more full time employment to be created upon completion.
According to the Antigua Observer, Stewart said the new lagoon nature reserve suites will offer amenities ranging from butler service and smart TVs to other traditional Sandals amenities.
