St. Maarten will get its first branded resort since Hurricane wreaked havoc on its accommodation capacity on September 6, 2017. Sunwing Travel Group has shared with government its plans to start construction of a branded Planet Hollywood Resort on the former Sonesta Great Bay Resort property. The new resort will be completed within 18 months once construction starts and will be built to “Miami-Dade standards” to weather hurricanes.
Minister of Tourism and Economic Affairs, Stuart Johnson pledged his “full support” to Sunwing and “the new resort will positively transform the destination and solidify its position as the regions leader in the hospitability industry.” He added that Sunwings’s investment is “a significant boost” in returning to St. Maarten to the number one vacation spot in the Caribbean.
