Businesses in Treasure Beach, Jamaica, have adapted and changed during the Coronavirus outbreak and are now very much open!
Resorts like Lashings Hotel and Frenchman’s Restaurant have managed to keep open throughout the Coronavirus crisis by offering take-out services, making it easy to social distance and by keeping to strict hygiene protocols. Several businesses took the few months out to refurbish/repaint and come up with new incentives ideas and have, in the main, now reopened and are thriving.
Some have adapted to offer community resources, such as 77 West Hotel which opened up its restaurant to allow schoolchildren to use its wifi and have a big open space in which to learn. Hold a Vibz Cafe has been offering home deliveries and local groups like the Treasure Beach Women’s Group made masks and delivered food parcels.
Lashings Tree Top Bar and Restaurant has built a busy and popular pizza takeaway business and changed its table layout for social distancing for those who want to dine in. It also opened an art gallery to showcase the work of talented Jamaican artists who might be struggling to sell their work currently.
In addition, the owner David Folb has also been in discussions with the ICC about a cricket tour of Jamaica, with the Brazil team coming to visit Treasure Beach. Lashings Owner David Folb said: “Treasure Beach is known for its forward thinking community based approach to tourism and it has really shown its resilience and ability to adapt during this crisis.
“We are very much open for Jamaicans who would like a short break on a beautiful stretch of coast and we are hoping to welcome overseas tourists again very soon. We have all taken on the strict new hygiene guidelines as set out by the government and feel this is very much a safe place to enjoy a vacation or staycation.”
