Message by the Hon. Richard L. Sealy, M.P Minister of Tourism, Barbados The Luxury Resort PURE Beach Resort and Spa will undoubtedly bring added value to the Barbados Tourism Product. On behalf of Barbados, I thank Ecoterra International Corporation for enhancing the tourism stock of the island through its investment. The development of this five-star resort and spa in Barbados clearly signals that we have an excellent product to be harnessed. The completed project will add to the ambience of the untapped south east coast of Barbados and promises to provide innumerable benefits to its clientele. I am particularly pleased that the Principals of this project are committed to utilizing the services of suppliers and workers in the St. Philip area wherever possible. The provision of employment opportunities will always be an important priority for the tourism sector. Brand Barbados is second to none. The guests of PURE Beach Resort and Spa will enjoy Barbados to the fullest. I guarantee it. The ubiquitous white sands, blue seas and brilliant sunshine welcome you at every turn. Four pillars anchor our product - heritage tourism, sports tourism, events tourism and faith-based tourism, giving the visitor a varied, unforgettable experience. Add our warm, friendly people to the mix and you will have a vacation of a lifetime. I commend Ecoterra International Corporation for aspects of this project that I find appealing. In this regard I give kudos to your impressive choice of leisure facilities, your emphasis on environmental sustainability and your involvement with community groups in St. Philip. I take this opportunity to once again thank Ecoterra International Corporation for selecting Barbados as their choice for business. I wish PURE Beach Resort and Spa the very best and now and in the future.
Richard L. Sealy, M.P Minister of Tourism
