Construction to begin on first of two new hotels in Tobago

After plans were recently announced that two new hotels would be built on the Caribbean island of Tobago, construction of the first one is expected to commence in the first quarter of 2014l.

The four-star Indigo Bay Resort will be located in the picturesque Little Rockley Bay in Lambeau on the island of Tobago and will have 79 suites.

The Vice-President of the Tobago Hotel and Tourism Association, Chris James, is investing $112 million in the project which is expected to be completed at the end of 2015.

Tracy Davidson-Celestine, the Secretary of Tourism at the Tobago House of Assembly (THA), said the property will "utilise the ambiance" of Little Rockly Bay as much as possible. She explained:

"Tobago is actively pursuing new hotel development. We are seeking to persuade investors to come to Tobago and encouraging investors currently there to expand and to move into new development. And that has not fallen on deaf ears."

The second of the two new Tobago hotels will be a 66-unit property and is also scheduled to open to guests next year.

Additional hotel projects that are taking place in Tobago and Trinidad over the next year include the Financial Complex Suites Limited in Port-of-Spain and the Capital Plaza Hotel, positioned across from the Port-of-Spain waterfront, and is currently undergoing refurbishments.

The twin-island nation is a popular Caribbean destination for tourists and during holidays to Trinidad and Tobago, travellers can enjoy tours of the Caroni Bird Sanctuary, the Emperor Valley Zoo and Botanical Gardens, and Fort George.

The nation has plenty of thriving nature parks, rainforests and cascading waterfalls to explore and water lovers can scuba dive down to Buccoo Reef in Tobago and discover vibrant coral gardens within shallow crystal-clear ocean waters.

Annual festivals include Divali, the Hindu festival of lights and the Tobago Heritage festival, and active travellers can take part in activities such as golf, snorkelling, scuba diving, sailing and horse riding.
