The Buccament Resort which closed its doors in December of 2016, may soon re-open.
Minister of Tourism Cecil Mckie told parliament that the Government had been advised that the resort should re-open its doors and commence operations in early 2018.
Mckie said its closure had impacted negatively on the tourism sector, with the lost of jobs and arrivals from the UK where their focus was concentrated.
He told parliament that the facility is in the hands of a trustee in bankruptcy.
The Minister said this is an ongoing process and the court will have to approve the entity that would eventually operate the facility.
In December of 2016 David Ames Chairman of the Harlequin Group of Companies, the owners of the Buccament Bay Resort, said that Harlequin hopes to refurbish the Resort and re-open under new management in spring 2017. However, such did not materialise.
