Dart prepares for extended period without overseas visitors

As COVID-19 continues to devastate the global travel industry, it has become clear there will be an extended period of time before we can expect visitors to start returning to the Cayman Islands. The Government has indicated that Cayman’s borders will remain closed for several months and that tourism is unlikely to pick up much before the end of the year. Businesses are advised to plan accordingly. 

For the hotels in Dart’s hospitality portfolio, we are faced with some difficult decisions. When our properties closed to guests in March, we had hoped our commitment to continue to pay employees for 10 weeks would be enough to weather the storm. Unfortunately, it now seems the hotels will be closed for a significantly longer period of time.
