Sandals’ ‘demands’ rejected
- There is a possibility that the Jamaica-based Sandals Resorts International (SRI) could pull the plug on its highly publicized US$400 million Beaches project which has started at the old Almond property in St Peter.
- Prime Minister Mottley, in her speech on Wednesday, said her administration has sought changes to the sweeping concessions the hotel chain was granted by the former administration when it first entered Barbados in 2013.
- Mottley admitted, “We have reached a difficult moment in the negotiations that may result in the project being stalled or pulled.”
