Hurst: New hotel to be built in Antigua

Lionel "Max Hurst, Government's Chief of Staff

Lionel Max Hurst, the Chief of Staff in the Prime Minister’s Office, says a new hotel is in the works for Antigua, and he is hopeful that the project will get off the ground.

This new hotel project is being spearheaded by a new Antigua and Barbuda resident.

According to Max Hurst, this investor was granted citizenship under the CIP program.

“He has gathered a group of wealthy individuals.”

“Through these investors, enough resources were obtained to finance the construction of a new hotel and a conference centre,” he says.

The government of Antigua and Barbuda anticipates that this project investment will be achieved based on the new citizens’ credibility, which the current administration is aware of.

Hurst went on to say that this city has a large network of investors with whom he can place his trust to carry out his vision for the new development.

The investor for this new project has requested that the government keep their identity hidden until they arrive in Antigua, and a press conference has been scheduled to provide additional information about the project’s ambition.

“At this news conference, the investor will then go into further detail about what they aim to accomplish,” the Chief of Staff added.

This project is anticipated to begin in the not-too-distant future, with the potential to boost economic activity in Antigua and Barbuda. — Trumpet News

  1. Great news, however everybody is getting a little sick and tired of these “coming soon” projects that don’t really produce. Let’s hope this one is the real thing.

    • @Betty’s Hopeless: Great News,you say. What is great about another Hotel in Antigua?Soon from now,all of our damn Beaches would be occupied by Hotels.There would be no where for we the people to take a sea bath.You have the gall to be saying good news. Hotels work are seasonal jobs with the lowly paid positions going to the locals.We need sustainable decent paying jobs in Antigua and Barbuda.The cost of living is going thru the freaking roofs.This is just another pie in the sky,like all of the other so called Investors.

    • Is it true that PARADISE LOST is in liquidation. If that is true, who now owns the land. Remember, there was no performance clause

  2. We don’t have enough already with the bullshit that is going on, all we know how to do is serve friggin white ppl.. bullshit what about factories, the brewery so young Antiguans can learn a skill in these required fields. Bullshit system I swear.

    • This!
      CIP is a good Idea but opening a Hotel is not an investment in the country!
      Yes Tourism is a big part of Antiguas economy, but the Money isnt going in, its going out of the country…
      Factories, Streets, more Freshwater production, better infrastructure in general is needed.
      But yes let the rich people build a Hotel and a conference room for rich people… What are Antiguans profiting from? A 150$ Loan?… Get your shit together, reform the CIP and build some schools train your teachers etc…

  3. Another con job that will never materialize just like Yida, Replay, De Niro, etc. Seems Gaston intends on winning the next election on promises of hotel projects that we all know will never be built. I am tired of hearing these fake hotel projects.

  4. After running this country for over 60 years, the albp party on the brink of an election can only offer the people 1 hotel?? to add to the 9 ground fakings that they had over the last 7 years… so we gonna have 10 ghost hotels that never get built? all they have to offer after all this economic poor house talk is servant jabs for jamaicans, guyanese and the dominicains to send remittances to build up their home countries at antiguans expense
    alp have too much old, useless dinosaurs who are pass their due date, taking up space and have nothing to contribute to our development, one hotel???? really????? helllloooo ever hear bout Covid and travel bans and vaccine passports…wan hotel????????
    60 plus years of failure and they looking for 5 more

  5. Since one definition of craziness is to do the same thing over and over and expecting a different result, I can conclude that ABLP is a CRAZY organization

  6. This!
