On Wednesday, the Cabinet of Antigua and Barbuda was presented with a proposal from the Minister of Tourism regarding the enhancement of the Hawksbill Hotel.
Formerly a Rex Resort, similar to Halcyon Cove, the hotel will undergo extensive renovations, with the firm allocating millions of dollars for the project.
The aim is to complete the upgrades by October 2023, just in time for the upcoming tourist season of 2023/2024.
As the demand for accommodations in Antigua and Barbuda continues to rise, it is necessary to expand the number of hotel rooms available.
Additionally, the Minister of Tourism has indicated that the reconstruction and refurbishment of the old Halcyon Hotel is progressing well and it is anticipated to be ready to welcome visitors by the end of this year.

The only thing good about that place is the Beach.Knock it down and build from the ground up.
But the beach is the biggest asset. You could not find a better location for anyone to vacation. Just come out of your room and you step on to the beach. That is paradise.
Dickenson Bay Beach used to be like that. Until hurricane Louis came. 🙁
The rest is history.
And how much you teaf max??? Asking for a friend.
Tired of hearing such empty pronouncements. It is said Antigua have so much demand and Antigua cannot attract any notable hotel chain?!?! Come on!!!!!!
I do not believe anything this government says.
Yes, there are renovations taking place, including a new swimming pool plus room upgrades etc, however I doubt if any new rooms are in the plans.
More unnecessary hype!
The article reads: “The Cabinet of Antigua and Barbuda was presented with a proposal from the Minister of Tourism regarding the enhancement of the Hawksbill Hotel.
A Government Minister presents to the Cabinet a proposal to Cabinet for the renovation of a hotel. Where did the proposal originate? Certainly, the developer is not the Minister of Tourism.
The statement “with the firm allocating millions of dollars for the project” Who are they? Who is the developer? And who are the managers?
This vague information to the public suggests something ain’t right about this development deal.
Part of the problem in Antigua and Barbuda is that the things to be covered and uncovered by journalist as just being washed under the table.
If he events stated here are true, meaning a vague statement as given to Cabinet; the good journalist should be sourcing the details and reporting them.
