Harlequin will focus on using several local Barbados-based companies and sub-contractors to carry out the works. The project will bring a much needed boost to the local construction business, and will be known as H Barbados.
 
Harlequin’s unique offering and approach of “Redefining Luxury in the Caribbean” has already proved to be popular within the travel industry and with guests. The subsequent interest and demand has led the company to create two new brands within its hotel group portfolio, the first of which will be in Barbados.
 
Speaking from Harlequin's offices at Hythe House in Maxwell, Barbados, Garrett Ronan, vice president of hotel and resort development, said, “This launch of Harlequins Boutique Brand in Barbados with the renovation of the former Allamanda Hotel, will bring a new ultra-chic, South Beah-style Hotel to the market. When completed, it will offer 77 luxury suites including 4 penthouses, an upscale martini lounge, a steak and seafood restaurant, a spa garden, pools and a gym. The hotel will offer a new level of anticipatory yet discreet service infused with Barbadian hospitality.”
