WORK will start in January to build a new hotel on Tobago.
Indigo Bay will be located at Lambeau on the site of Inn on the Bay, and is expected to open its door towards the end of 2015. It will be a four star, 79-suite property.
The hotel is being built by Chris James, who recently became President of the Tobago Hotel and Tourism Association. He says they will be working hard to protect the environment while the hotel is being built.
It is expected to be built in 18 months. “So I am looking forward to opening my hotel in the latter part of 2015,” says James.
Designed to make visitors feel as if they’re standing on the deck of a ship, the unique structure also includes many one-of-a-kind features such as a pool side wall that doubles as a movie screen, where visitors can watch 1930 movies under the stars with the roar of the ocean in the background.
James already owns the Bonkers restaurant and bar and the three star hotel, Toucan Inn at Crown Point with his colleague, James Vaughan.
Plans for Indigo Bay were announced at the World Travel Market in London last month. Another 66-unit hotel is also expected to be built in the northeast of the island.
