Work has started at another big-name tourist property on the South Coast.

But officials prefer to keep their heads down until the time is right.

The site at Hastings, Christ Church, that will be developed into Harlequin H Barbados has been a hive of activity the past fortnight, but the hoteliers involved are still keeping relevant information close to their chests.

Workers have been busy with heavy-duty equipment since last month, but just when the hotel will be opened to the public remains a mystery.

Please read the full story in today's Daily Nation, or in the eNATION edition.
