ST JOHN’S, Antigua, Jul 20 2017 – Sandals Resorts International (SRI) has announced the temporary closure of Sandals Grande Antigua beginning September 20.
SRI said the closure is to facilitate important maintenance projects.
A letter of intention to close was shared with government officials late last week. Original estimates suggested that the work would take five months to complete, but after a full and detailed assessment and a new project plan that condenses work flow, SRI officials confirm that the resort will reopen December 17.
This is the first time Sandals Grande Antigua, the only flagged Sandals Resort in this destination, has closed since opening in 1992.
“There is no convenient time to inconvenience people, and while many hotels in Antigua have traditionally closed on an annual basis, we have not and recognize the dramatic consequences this action has on our staff, industry and destination partners, vendors and of course, guests. We humbly and sincerely apologize and promise, Sandals will take care of you,” said SRI chairman Gordon “Butch” Stewart. “Our team is committed to handling this period in the most professional and practical way possible.”
