Answer 2. The approximate annual operating and staffing costs are $168,400.

Answer 3. A press statement was made on March 28th, 2018 by the Minister of Public Works fully explaining the plans for the site – those plans are advancing.”

In March, it was announced that the property, which was originally planned as a housing development and went on the market in 2012, will become a “new mid market boutique resort to to be re-named the Bermudiana Beach Resort.”

The Government said the work will involve 71 condos being refurbished, while the remaining seven condos will be made into areas for operations and amenities such as a reception area, meeting room, restaurant, spa, as well as ‘trams’ to provide access the beach, and the “anticipated opening date” is April 2020.

    Why on Earth was this not made into a nice normal rental apartment complex?? It would be full by now…instead of more pie in the sky multi-million condos like we need anymore

      I was thinking the same. Low cost rentals to young singles and families would be a lot more impactful.
