Launch of multi-billion Grenada resort complex project nears

The Caribbean is set to get another huge hotel complex as the Grenada Resort Complex Project gets ready to launch. Investors are said to have already begun the clean-up work for the $2 billion development on the Mount Hartman peninsula and Hog Island in Grenada, which will have luxury hotels, a national park, a marina village, and a wellness centre.

Launch of multi-billion Grenada resort complex project nears

Following the failure of the Baha Mar project in the Bahamas, the Caribbean looks set to get another multi-million dollar development in the near future.

The Grenada Resort Complex Project was officially launched in China last summer, and will see the development of the Mount Hartman peninsula and Hog Island in Grenada.

According to Dr Keith Mitchell, the Prime Minister of Grenada, investors have already begun the clean-up work on the $2 billion resort project, saying the China-based United Demi Group had:

"...agreed to invest in a serious training programme to ensure they have qualified people on board.There is going to be serious economic spin-off for the country whether its agriculture, tourism development all aspects in the productive sector and work for the young people."

Dr Mitchell explained, he also continued:

"There is going to be an ambitious training program preparing the young people for the jobs that will come."

The huge development will feature high-end luxury hotels and resorts, residential units, a national park, a wellness and medical centre, and a marina village.

It will be the largest Chinese tourism project in the Caribbean since the Yida mega-project in Antigua was announced in 2014, and the failed Baha Mar complex, which has had huge financial problems and is currently in a legal battle despite being 97 per cent complete.

The new development could make Grenada a world-class tourist destination. The island is home to an abundance of magnificent natural attractions such as the famous Grand Anse Beach; the island's highest peak, Mount St. Catherine; the Grand Etang Nature Reserve that boasts a stunning crater lake; Seven Sister Waterfalls; the tropical Bay Gardens; and the beautiful Underwater Sculpture Park which is a hotspot for scuba divers and snorkellers.

Grenada is famously known as the "Island of Spice", due to its position as a leading producer of spices such as cinnamon, cloves, ginger, mace, orange/citrus peels, wild coffee, nutmeg and organic cocoa.

Holidaymakers can delve into the nation's history and culture by visiting the Grenada National Museum, Fort George and Fort Frederick; River Antoine Rum Distillery, the oldest rum distillery in the western hemisphere; the Dougladston Estate, the oldest spice plantation in Grenada; and Belmont Estate, a former 17th century plantation and base for the renowned Grenada Chocolate Company products.
