The island of Carriacou in Grenada will soon increase the stock of its rooms as phase 1 of the Cassada Bay Resort Project nears completion.

According to a release from Grenada’s Ministry of Tourism, “In its first phase, the Cassada Bay Resort involves the construction of two 3-bedroom units, together with a restaurant and bar, and is earmarked to be completed by April 2021.”

“The second phase of the project entails the construction of 15 two-bedroom units, which will come on-stream in mid-2021 and will generate additional employment in Carriacou.”

Project manager of the Cassada Bay Resort Limited, Sterlin Hennesey, has said that while the coronavirus has negatively impacted the construction work, there are plans in place to complete phase 1 of the project under the guidance of government-set protocol, upon the reopening of construction work after the lockdown.

Hennesy also shared that the Cassada Bay Resort Limited will target both long-term and short-term visitors locally, regionally and internationally, delivering world-class and upscale accommodations to all.

He also noted that the resort will target the cruising and yachting sector, with the incorporation of a mooring field for liveaboard yachters and cruisers — a proposal which now awaits approval of the Government of Grenada.

“The second phase of the project entails the construction of 15 two-bedroom units, which will come on-stream in mid-2021 and will generate additional employment in Carriacou,” the release also said.
