According to Bartlett’s statement at the virtual opening ceremony of the new Sandals hotel Dunn’s River Resort, in St. Ann, agreements concluded in Spain will result in another 1,000 rooms, 700 of which will be built in Richmond and 280 in the capital of the country, CaribbeanNewsNetwork website reported.

Jamaica is projecting an optimistic scenario for this industry despite the challenges posed by Covid-19, because, according to the minister of Tourism, it is expecting to receive 1.4 million tourists in 2021, caribbeannewsdigital website reported.

This figure is divided into 900,000 standard tourists and 500,000 cruise ship passengers, Bartlett recently said at virtual Marketplace event from the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association.

Another authority from this sector, Donovan White, said the constant additions to Jamaica’s tourist infrastructure enables it to handle the huge influx of tourists expected with the relaxing of travel restrictions.

At least 4,800 rooms will be added until the end of 2023, and the hotels to be incorporated will be Sandals Negril, Sandals Whitehouse, Sandals Royal Caribbean and Princess in Negril, and the Hard Rock in Montego Bay will add 1,700 rooms in the next two years.
