BRIDGETOWN, Barbados -- Time Out for the Caribbean, a new resort
brand owned by Toronto-based UniHost Corp., was scheduled to open
its first property here, Time Out at St. Lawrence Gap, July 10.
The brand offers "a price that makes sense," according to
Michael Beckley, executive vice president of Tradewinds, the
company that designed Time Out.
Time Out's first property is a
renovated, 76-room hotel, formerly the Andrea-on-Sea, located on
the south coast of Barbados. The company also is building a 75-room
hotel adjacent to the Dover Convention Centre, across the street
from the Andrea-on-Sea, that is scheduled to open in the summer of
1999. At that time, the two hotels will be integrated into a single
property called Time Out at St. Lawrence Gap, a spokesman said.
The first phase of Time Out at St. Lawrence Gap has a game room,
transportation center and the Whistling Frog pub with a big-screen
television and three happy hours daily. The Dover site will have a
pool, according to the firm.
Also on the south coast of Barbados, Time Out is planning to
open in December its Time Out at Rockley Beach, which was formerly
Worthing Court, a 24-room hotel, and the Blue Horizon, a 120-room
property. Both properties have pools and are located across the
street from the beach, he said.
Latitude 12 Barbados, a second UniHost brand aimed at an upscale
market, will rename the Eastry House hotel Latitude 12 Barbados at
Eastry House in October 1999, according to the company. The
property will include a spa, the spokesman said.
Latitude 12 at the Savannah, formerly the Seaview hotel, will
open with 21 rooms in July on the south coast and, in the fall of
1999, the company will open 88 rooms as well as pools and
waterfalls at the hilltop property overlooking the beach, according
to the spokesman.
Rates at Time Out at St. Lawrence Gap through Dec. 18 are $63
per night, double, and $100 per night, double, from Dec. 19 to
Time Out at St. Lawrence Gap. Phone: (888) 599-6666
