Almond Beach Resort, which closed its doors on May 1 last year, has raised tens of thousands of dollars from the sale of property ranging from household items to vehicles and boats.
The two-day public auction, which concluded today, included other items such as tiles, crockery, linen, beach chairs, cutlery, lighting fixtures, soaps and plumbing equipment.
President of the Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association, Patricia Affonso-Daas, told Barbados TODAY this afternoon, that contrary to what people thought, the items put on the auction block were not from the hotel’s rooms.
“There were no items from the operations of the hotel,” Affonso-Daas explained.
She said the articles were essentially what were in storage.
Items in stock
“These were the items in stock which the hotel was planning to use … in excess; nothing from the hotel itself,” added the BHTA head. (EJ)
