US-based travel and hospitality conglomerate, Apple Leisure Group, has been chosen to run Tobago’s 198-room Magdalena Grand Beach and Golf Resort. Finance Minister Colm Imbert revealed yesterday that Apple Leisure was chosen from among a few foreign hotel operators.
He said Government is expected to wrap up negotiations with the US company within a month. Once negotiations are successful, Apple will not only bring a “world class brand” to Tobago but also “airlift”, Imbert said. He made this announcement yesterday at a post-budget forum, hosted by the Trinidad and Tobago Chamber of Industry and Commerce at the Hyatt Regency, Port of Spain.
