Hotels: ‘We’Ve Never Seen This In Ten Years’


The Nassau/Paradise Island hotel industry has “rebounded with gains not seen for ten years”, it was revealed yesterday, as room revenues closed 2018 up 34 percent year-over-year.

Robert Sands, pictured, Baha Mar’s senior vice-president of government and external affairs, told Tribune Business that last year’s momentum had been maintained through “a very strong 2019 first quarter” with most tourism industry participants confident these trends will hold for the full year barring any hurricanes or unanticipated economic shocks.

The Festival That Displays What It Means To Be Bahamian


A male visitor from Pennsylvania, plucked randomly from the crowd to judge a pepper sauce competition at the weekend Tru Tru Bahamian Festival, got more than he bargained for which was more than the hot sauce experience. Prior to the pepper sauce tastings, he developed a case of the hiccups, and with no water anywhere to be found, and surrounded by a bunch of Bahamians he was advised to stick a piece of brown paper on his forehead.

With no brown paper bags in sight, he was encouraged to take a piece of his mate’s white paper bag, wet it thoroughly in his mouth and then stick it on his forehead. He was a little stunned and apprehensive at the advice, but he proved to be a trooper, and showed his spirit by doing it. Within seconds of pressing the piece of paper to his forehead he announced that his hiccups had surprisingly stopped, to which he was informed that he had just had a true-true Bahamian experience.
