Construction of the multi-million-dollar Sandals Beaches hotel in St Peter is going ahead despite the current bleak economic climate in Barbados.

Sandals International group deputy chairman Adam Stewart says this assurance has been given to Prime Minister Mia Mottley during meetings held between the Prime Minister and Sandals executive.

Stewart and his father, founder and chairman of Sandals Gordon Butch were in Barbados for major Sandals employee event. He confirmed construction of the US$450 million hotel, the most expensive to be built in the chain, would start on January 1 and should be completed over a two-year period. (GC)
