St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): The Deputy Chairman of Sandals Group, Adam Stewart’ statement follows the resort’s complaint that officials in Grenada were falsely claiming that the cluster spread of COVID-19 originated on its property.
He offered two reasons for the closure:
1. “It’s a holiday season which is unfortunate, and Sandals is absorbing 100 percent of the cost for accommodating our impacted guests at any of our other resorts in the region that they choose.”
2. Because the government is starting to shift and is unsure of how they will go forward with their own protocols and tourist entry requirements, we must wait for them to finaliSe a plan so we can have a professional conversation about how that’s going to affect our customers, our operation and our staff.
“We want to give ourselves that time to be sure and get it right. What we have learned this year is that a lack of clarity as to traveller rules, restrictions and protocols, or constantly changing guidelines, make it impossible for travellers to feel confident in visiting a destination,” the statement ended.
