Sandals, Bahamian government reach agreement

The Butch Stewart-led Sandals Resorts Internatinal chain has reached an agreement with the Bahamian government that will help alleviate the cost of running its resort on the island of Great Exuma

The Travel Weekly website quoted Adam Stewart, Sandals’ CEO, as saying details of the agreement will be released over the next two weeks.

Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart, the founder of Sandals, last year said the Sandals Emerald Bay on Great Exuma was in a dire situation because of high operating costs and insufficient airlift. The hotel chain said its effort involved looking to the Bahamas government for solutions.

According to Adam Stewart, the people of Great Exuma believe that Sandals is the catalyst to put the island on the map and have worked with the company to help keep the resort open.
