Latest Antigua Tourism Update After Irma

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - September 10, 2017

While the island of Barbuda was devastated, neighboring Antigua escaped a severe impact from Hurricane Irma.

Electricity is being restored to the island’s capital, St John’s and most parts of the island, with VC Bird International Airport opening last Thursday.

So how are Antigua’s hotels doing?

Below see a list of hotel updates from the storm, provided by the CHTA:

• Curtain Bluff: Property emerged from the tail of the storm without any damage. Most importantly, all our staff and their families are unharmed. We have already begun to clean up the property and communications will soon be restored.

• Cocos Hotel: No long term damage

• Cocobay Resort: We are truly grateful at Cocobay Resort and on the mainland of Antigua to have made it through the stormy week unscathed.

• Galley Bay: We wish to inform everyone that the guests are doing just fine and are safe. We thank everyone for their concern and will provide operational updates in the coming days

• Hermitage Bay: Little water logged from the swells which came up but other than that we are fine.

• Jumby Bay Island: Members of the Jumby Bay Island team have assessed the island and at present there is no structural damage to any of the resort or homes that we can identify. A landscaping clean-up will need to be done however this is the extent that can be seen. Jumby Bay Island is currently closed as part of its annual maintenance program and therefore no guests were on the island when Hurricane Irma passed. Jumby Bay Island did have a skeleton team of facility and security staff present throughout the storm. The reopening remains scheduled as planned for 9th October 2017.

• Keyonna Beach Resort: Happy to share we have no long term damages.

• Pineapple Beach Club: We wish to inform everyone that the guests are doing just fine and are safe. We thank everyone for their concern and will provide operational updates in the coming days.

• St. James Club: We wish to inform everyone that the guests are doing just fine and are safe. We thank everyone for their concern and will provide operational updates in the coming days.

• Verandah: We wish to inform everyone that the guests are doing just fine and are safe. We thank everyone for their concern and will provide operational updates in the coming days
