A government press release says the Royal Antiguan Hotel will be refurbished and reopened by the Sunwing Group by November 2018.
The Sunwing Group purchased the rundown and derelict hotel for US$27 million dollars from investor named Issa Nicholas.
Nicholas bought the hotel in 2004 from the United Progressive Party administration for US$12 million.
But the hotel became rundown and employment was cut back until less than fifty workers were kept.
The government says the Sunwing group will gut the existing structure down to the steel frame, rewire the building and redo the plumbing and the air conditioning.
The work will also include placing balconies on the front and the rear of the structure.
The government says the investors will hire more than 200 construction workers .
Upon completion, the government says, the Sunwing Group will hire more than 250 workers to meet the requirements of their properties’ high standard.
The Sunwing Group will also be constructing bungalows, high-end residences, waterfront villas, golf townhouses and condos, over a two-year period, resulting in more than 1,000 rooms at Deep Bay, when the construction is completed. The group will spend more than US$250 million dollars, according to a government press release.
