Basseterre, St Kitts, November 24, 2019 – An underwater hotel for St Kitts, promised Federal Minister of Tourism, Hon Lindsay Grant, is still to materialise.
Mr Grant made the promise in February 2018 that an underwater hotel in St Kitts will be a first not only for St Kitts and Nevis, but also the world.
“We just announced the Ritz Carlton which will be 125 rooms on the South East Peninsula in addition to 25 branded villas that we are expecting to create some 300 jobs during the construction stage and another 250 jobs during the hotel development stage. I also want to say Mr. Speaker, that we have been negotiating with what I would call a cutting-edge hotel which we expect to come during the currency of this year, early next year. The most I’ll say about it Mr. Speaker, the cutting edge nature of it, it will be an underwater hotel, the first kind in the world, St Kitts always coming first,” Grant told residents during a meeting if the St Kitts and Nevis National Assembly.
As WINNFM also reported in February 2018, the tourism minister said the people of the country would soon hear more about the avant-garde development, one he called a first of its kind in the world.
“I want to say to you also that the developers are those who would have developed and had a significant interest in the Palm Island in Dubai and so very shortly we’re going to come to the country with more details Mr. Speaker, on that development suffice to say that it will be the first of its kind not only in the Caribbean but in the world,” said Grant.
Since that announcement, Mr Grant and Prime Minister Harris have also not delivered on the start of construction of the underwater hotel, the Ritz-Carlton and the Six Senses.
