Thursday 2, February 2012
The life of Jamaica’s most successful business entrepreneur and the story of Sandals Resorts is brought to life through compelling biography, Life’s a Beach
Sandals Resorts and publishers Elliott & Thompson are delighted to announce the launch of Life’s a Beach, the inspirational true story of Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart, founder and chairman of phenomenally successful Caribbean holiday company Sandals Resorts International by award winning editor, Jo Foley.
Stewart is one of Jamaica’s most influential and inspirational business leaders and presides over a billion dollar business empire that has shaped the economic landscape of the Caribbean. From an ambitious young air conditioning salesman to the founder of one of the world’s biggest brands, Stewart’s business interests incorporate over 20 separate companies that are collectively Jamaica’s largest private sector group, the country’s biggest foreign exchange earner and its largest non-government employer.
Despite his many achievements and unconventional attitude to business, Butch Stewart’s inspirational life story remains widely unknown. Covering his early years to the present day, Life’s a Beach documents Stewart’s rags-to-riches tale in a lavishly illustrated, full-colour biography. With photographic material throughout including personal photos and archive shots, this engaging and enlightening biography provides a fascinating insight into the on-going development of one of the world’s leading holiday brands.

With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
