Barbados is expecting another record year of tourist arrivals.

 

This was announced by the CEO of the Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc., William Griffith.

 

“The BTMI is already reporting 324,551 arrivals for 2019, which is four per cent above the same period for 2018. The UK grew by 9.6 per cent over 2018, and the US, which has been showing consistent increases, is up 7.5 per cent over last year.

 

“Other successes were recorded in the Caribbean, Central and South America, and also Germany…who we are watching closely, as we welcome a new Lufthansa service this October,” Griffith said.

 

Speaking to 60 tour operators from the UK and Ireland, Griffith highlighted the island’s attractions, including its newest ones, the Rum Vault at Colony Club Hotel, St. James, and the St. Nicholas Abbey Heritage Railway tours, in St. Peter.

 

He also mentioned Barbados’ latest accommodation, which opened this month, Abidah by Accra, which is an adult only boutique hotel located in the southern community of Christ Church.
