The Cape Cod, Mass., resort is closing its doors after the city saw an unprecedented increase in visitor numbers.
The resort’s owner, Tradewinder, said in a statement that the number of guests over the past month has exceeded its capacity and the resort’s staff have been unable to meet demand.
TradEWinds Resort will reopen the resort on July 22, Tridewinder said in the statement.
Tridwinder has said it will open at least twice a week during peak season.
Tridenews Resort has been operating in Cape Cod since 2010.
The Cape Town, South Africa-based resort opened in 2018, and opened its first town center in Cape Town in March 2019.
The site is in the southern part of the Cape, about 10 miles (16 kilometers) north of Cape Cod.
The owners said they have made significant investments to improve facilities and staff and that they are committed to providing an enjoyable and safe experience for visitors.
Tridonews is in need of significant financial help to cover its operating expenses, Tridenewind’s CEO, Jock Sturgess, said.
“We’re facing some very difficult times right now,” he said.
Sturgesses said Tridiwind’s owners are expecting to lose between $100 million and $200 million in revenue this year and $100 to $200 billion in the next 10 years.
The company had planned to reopen on the same day as the resort, Sturges said, adding that the resort will reopen to guests on a Monday.
The announcement came as many other resorts in the Cape Cod region were shutting down, with some shutting down altogether.
The Town of Grafton, which is about 120 miles (200 kilometers) east of Cape Town and about two hours away from Tridiewind, closed down at the end of July, its owner, Michael Sturgen, told the Associated Press.
In June, Trondewind closed down for the season because of the high demand for accommodation and lodging, Sturges said.
The city of Chatham, about 45 miles (70 kilometers) southeast of Cape City, is also closed because of an increase in demand for lodging, hotels and attractions, said its mayor, Scott Stenzel.
Stensel said in June that Chatham was facing an increase of about 100 visitors a day due to the high number of cancellations in the last two months.
Trondiewind and the other resorts will reopen in late August, said Sturgel, who said that the company is working with the city to develop a strategy to better manage demand.
