Overview

The chronicle of Jamaican entrepreneur Gordon "Butch" Stewart and his all-inclusive Caribbean resort chain, Sandals Resorts, is an engaging travel business success story. Stewart came from humble beginnings but had drive and determination that would take him far. He began his career selling air conditioners door-to door, and, in 1968 founded Appliance Traders Limited, a booming appliance business still in operation today in Kingston, Jamaica.

In 1981, with no hotel experience, the gutsy maverick invested in a rundown hotel located adjacent to an airport runway in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Today, that hotel is part of the Caribbean's number one ultra all-inclusive resort group, Sandals Resorts, one of the travel industry's most recognized worldwide brands.

This commemorative book chronicles the events and the people associated with the chain over the past twenty-plus years, and it describes how the personality of the industrious Gordon "Butch" Stewart permeates the culture of the company to this day. With a committment to the highest level of quality and service, and the ability to constantly innovate and above all give guests more than they expect, the Sandals brand remains at the forefront of Caribbean travel.
