PARSIPPANY, NJ – Highlighting strong and growing interest in its portfolio of upscale brands in the Caribbean, Wyndham Hotel Group, the world’s largest hotel company, today announced plans for further global expansion with the development of the 450-room Sam Lord’s Castle Barbados, A Wyndham Grand Resort.

Located in the parish of St. Philip at the former site of Sam Lord’s Castle–a spot renowned for pirates in the 19th century and one that carries great historical significance in the Caribbean today–the all-new construction resort is being developed with Barbados Tourism Investment, Inc. and will be managed by Wyndham Hotel Group. It will be the first Wyndham branded resort in Barbados.

“The famous buccaneer Sam Lord settled in this area for its beauty and mystique. Today, we believe he selected the perfect location for our continued growth in the Caribbean,” said Paulo Pena, president and managing director, Latin America and the Caribbean for Wyndham Hotel Group.

Sam Lord’s Castle Barbados, A Wyndham Grand Resort will be situated along the gorgeous beaches of Long Bay by Sam Lord’s Castle. The site was a beautiful Georgian mansion built in 1820 by Samuel Hall Lord, known as ‘Sam Lord’. It is said that the notorious buccaneer used to hang lanterns on palm trees to attract merchant ships whose captains mistakenly thought the place was a safe harbor.

When it opens in 2018, the hotel will be Wyndham Hotel Group’s 13th property in the Caribbean.
