PM gives address at Sandals re-opening ceremony


NASSAU, The Bahamas – Prime Minister the Hon. Philip Davis gave the keynote address at the grand re-opening of Sandals Royal Bahamian Spa Resort & Offshore Island, Cable Beach on Thursday, January 27, 2022. 

Among officials on the guest list were: the Most Hon. Andrew Michael Holness, Prime Minister of Jamaica and his delegation; Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Tourism, Investments and Aviation the Hon I. Chester Cooper; Adam Stewart, Executive Chairman of Sandals International; and Adrian Whitehead, General Manager, Sandals. The event marked the re-opening of the resort since closure at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.

The Prime Minister stated: “I particularly welcome the genuine commitment to the Caribbean displayed under  the  leadership  of  Adam  Stewart,  and his father  before  him.   We need more entrepreneurs like  them,  bold, visionary, and  unashamedly  celebrating  the  unique  and  multi-faceted  delights  of   the jewels  of  the  Caribbean.   Since their arrival  in  1996,  the  Stewart family’s self-declared ‘love affair’ with The  Bahamas  lives  on.   From that faithful beginning, this Jamaican-born brand has   expanded its one-of-a-kind  offering and brought  many  benefits  to  The  Bahamas.”
