Jamaica’s Bath Set To Become A Tourist Destination

The Minister of Tourism Hon. Edmund Bartlett is looking forward to making Bath in St. Thomas a popular tourist destination.

In a recent visit to the community, he noted Bath Fountain is one of the best natural spas in the western hemisphere.

He said the facility and the Bath Botanical Gardens are “two important assets that can bring a lot more Jamaicans to come and visit as well as international visitors who will bring foreign exchange into the community.”

He said that he would be making a new announcement in the coming days following additional discussions.

“The discussions will be around how to enhance that facility (Bath Fountain) and how to incorporate the community within that space while, at the same time, ensuring that we maximize the development of that critical asset, the value of which to Jamaica is [unquantifiable],” the Minister said.

The destination assurance tour of the parish was intended to explore how to enhance the development of St. Thomas to become “a strong tourism parish” he noted.

Mr. Bartlett further noted that over a two-year period, a team of consultants have toured the entire parish to see its touristic and general assets.

“We’ve gone to see Rocky Point and the wonderful beaches that are there; we’ve gone to see Pera, which represents the next frontier for new hotel and touristic development with perhaps the longest stretch of virgin beach in this part of the island; we’ve looked at Roselle and White Horses; and we went to Reggae falls,” the Minister recounted.

Mr. Bartlett reiterated that St. Thomas is the next frontier for tourism development in Jamaica.
