New hotel on the way
THE HOTEL INDIGO brand is coming to Barbados, replacing the eyesore that was once the Caribbee Hotel on Hastings Main Road, Christ Church.
Hotel Indigo is a chain of boutique hotels, part of InterContinental Hotels Group. As of September 2018, there were 94 Hotel Indigo hotels featuring over 11 581 rooms worldwide.
The InterContinental Hotels Group (IHC) is a British multinational hospitality company headquartered in Denham, Buckinghamshire, England, with about 800 000 guest rooms and 5 000 hotels across nearly 100 countries, including brands such as Candlewood Suites, Crowne Plaza, Even Hotels, Holiday Inn, Hotel Indigo, InterContinental, Kimpton Hotels and Resorts and Staybridge Suites.
A source told the NATION the unsightly red Caribbee building, which has fallen into a state of disrepair after several years of being unoccupied, would be demolished as soon as the legal transactions were completed. Work would begin on the new “modular” 170-room Hotel Indigo after that. (GC)
