9781927679456: Paradise Found and Lost: The History of the First All-Inclusive Resort in the Caribbean

Today, the all-inclusive resort has become a tourist industry standard in the Caribbean, which many North Americans and Europeans enjoy every year. However, back in 1948, the concept was unheard of until the man who brought holiday camps to Britain in the 1930s recognized that air travel was on the rise and the Caribbean was opening up. This is the story of how the first all-inclusive was built, partially opened, closed, partially renovated, reopened, fully renovated and then finally closed down for good. Included are four original maps of the resort showing its many changes over the years and other drawings.

John Sliz has written over thirty books, which have been published by a number of different publishers in Canada.

Since his first visit to Grand Bahama Island in 1972 he has travelled extensively in the Caribbean with his wife, The Tour Hound. As an electrical designer he has worked on several Four Season Resorts and can’t visit a resort without analysing its inner workings. This he always keeps to himself, so as not to bore The Tour Hound. He lives in Toronto, Canada and is already researching his next book. Please visit his website: www.stormboatkings.ca
