SECRETARY for the THA Division of Tourism, Culture, Antiquities and Transportation Tashia Burris has announced that two major hotel developments are coming to Tobago. Burris was one of the secretaries to report in the THA’s first quarterly report for the year in its Mandate Monday event. The report was carried live on the Office of the Chief Secretary’s Facebook page.
She said to date, there have been meetings with two major hotel chains on the developments to be built on the island.
“The idea is to position Tobago as being ready to attract foreign direct investment and to attract major hotel developments. We’re pleased to say that discussions have commenced with respect to two of these developments – one in east and one in west.”
THA Chief Secretary Farley Augustine elaborated.
“In Roxborough, it is the Saint’s Development. A sod-turning happened many, many moons ago. Of course, we turn a lot of sods at the beginning of elections or on the cusp of elections, so that happened many, many moons ago, but they have finally started in Roxborough. You’ve seen the lands being cleared and some infrastructural work happening opposite the Renaissance. That’s what’s happening there.”
The project overlooking the beachfront is the $350 million Argyle Falls Resort and 126 townhouses, expected to be completed in the next two years.
