Antigua and Barbuda’s Jolly Beach Hotel Prepares to Woo Italian Charter Company with Exclusive Upgrades

Jolly Beach in October 2022 before recent upgrades

The Cabinet of Antigua and Barbuda has extended an invitation to the principals of the Jolly Beach Management Team, requesting their proposal for accommodating the needs of an Italian charter company called Alpitor.

The proposal entails preparing a section of the Jolly Beach Hotel to meet the specific requirements of Alpitor.

Approximately 80 rooms will be designated exclusively for charter visitors, who are expected to arrive between December 15th, 2023, and September 15th, 2024.

During this nine-month period, these specially prepared rooms will provide accommodation exclusively for adult guests and will be upgraded to a four-star standard.

To accommodate any additional passengers that Alpitour may bring, an additional 20 rooms will be prepared according to their specifications.

The total investment required for this endeavor amounts to USD 1.8 million.

The agreement between Jolly Beach and Alpitour is expected to last between three to five years.

As the owner of Jolly Beach, the government stands to earn approximately two million dollars annually from the taxes and costs associated with Alpitour’s operations during the nine-month period.

  1. What has become of that Travel Company that was suppose to take it over a few years ago? All damn empty promises and not one nail is pounded into one piece of board. Then again,who would want to stay in those Horse Stables looking rooms at that place. Are the furniture in the rooms still made from concrete?

  2. Avatar photo When will the Gaston Browne administration push for the illegal printing of Antigua and Barbuda passports case to be called 🇦🇬

    Again, who are the principals of the Jolly Beach Management Team?
    Transparent government?

  3. Why woo Italians? Italy has an extensive network of crime syndicates known for drug trafficking and arms smuggling. They are murdering Italian officials and police officers and at least one of them has already tried to hide out in the Caribbean. I hope the government will be very careful with this endeavor.
