Due for completion in early 2019, the White Sands Hotel & Spa – the latest development from the world-renowned The Resort Group PLC – is presenting a new wealth of Cape Verde investment opportunities not to be missed by the smart, modern investor.
The 5-star Resort on the aptly-named Island of Boa Vista (meaning “beautiful view” in Portuguese) is being built to cater for the rising touristic demand for luxury accommodation in Cape Verde. More and more holidaymakers are discovering these glorious, tropical Islands off the west coast of Africa every year, as year-round sunshine, crystal-clear waters, unbeatable hospitality and “no stress” lifestyle have earned the country the reputation of being the “new Caribbean”. And, as Cape Verde emerges on the world travel map as an unmissable holiday destination, so too does it become an investor’s dream come true.
White Sands Hotel & Spa – An Investment Designed Around You
The White Sands Hotel & Spa takes its name from the sugar-white sands of Santa Monica Beach just footsteps away from the Resort, and of which nearly every property in the complex will have a clear, uninterrupted view. The Island itself is the third largest in the tropical archipelago, though is the least densely populated, meaning that its rustic, undiscovered feel is retained, making it the perfect destination for relaxing, sunshine getaways.
While in the past, the touristic success of Cape Verde has been largely driven by the rising number of visits to Sal Island, today, more and more people are choosing Boa Vista for their sunshine holidays – those of course, who want luxury accommodation on their travels. Attracted by the 55km of unspoilt beaches, a rich variety of wildlife – including nesting loggerhead turtles, and a fine display of leaping dolphins and humpback whales a short distance offshore – the brand new White Sands Hotel & Spa will serve as a new attraction in its own right, and is being built to cater for every type of tourist, and indeed every type of investor.
There are 835 luxury properties spanning 16 different categories at the White Sands Hotel & Spa. These include a range of penthouse and duplex-style suites, as well as private villas with whirlpool baths, swim-up pools and hot tubs. All have been finished to the very highest specifications with beautifully designed interiors using only the finest fixtures, furnishings and premium appliances.
The Resort itself has been thoughtfully split into adults-only and family sections, meaning that no matter if you’re looking for an investment to enjoy with your family, or one that will serve as luxurious base for your own child-free holiday adventures, the White Sands Hotel & Spa has a property that will meet your needs, as it will meet the individual needs of everyone who comes to stay here when the doors open in 2019.
Indeed, complete with six Resort swimming pools – including a baby pool and two children’s pools – six themed restaurants offering a range of fine-dining and buffet-style experiences, a variety of bars, a nightclub, tennis courts, beach ball courts, fitness centre, water sports centre, and the world-famous YHI Spa – there’s something for everyone at the White Sands Hotel & Spa.
Manage Your Investment Your Way
It’s not hard to imagine just how popular the White Sands Hotel & Spa will become as a tourist destination when construction is complete. And with experts forecasting continued touristic success long into the future – Cape Verde has been named as one of the top ten countries in the world for long-term tourism growth – anyone looking for assured returns from an overseas buy-to-let property investment will struggle to find a better opportunity than what’s on offer at the White Sands Hotel & Spa.
But of course, when it comes to making an investment, investors need to know that they will have the flexibility to manage their property the way they want to. And that’s exactly why The Resort Group PLC offers a range of management options, all uniquely tailored to suit the different needs of different investors.
Hotel Management Programme
The Resort Group PLC’s Hotel Management Programme is the perfect option for investors looking for year-round assured returns on their investment, with the added benefit of being able to use their property as their very own holiday home for up to five weeks every year.
The Programme means that you will essentially be able to enjoy a completely hands-free investment. It is managed by the largest Resort operator in the world – Meliá Hotels International. Utilising Meliá’s lucrative commercial partnerships with global tour operators and travel agencies, your property will be marketed to millions of holidaymakers worldwide, maximising the opportunity for you to enjoy consistent rental returns right around the calendar. What’s more, everything will be taken care of on your behalf – including rent collections, maintenance and cleaning – and you still get to holiday in your property for up to five weeks every single year. This really is the very best of both worlds.
For added flexibility, you can join the program on a rolling one-year contract, meaning that should your circumstances change or you decide to take up a different rental opportunity in the future, you are perfectly entitled to do so.
12/7/5 Property Options
For those interested in the Hotel Management Programme, our fantastic 12/7/5 Property Options offer makes investment easy and ensures you start enjoying assured returns from the very first day of investment.
The offer means that as soon as you complete your purchase, you’ll start receiving 12% assured returns – even while the White Sands Hotel & Spa is still under construction. When the doors open to paying guests in early 2019, you’ll then begin enjoying a guaranteed 7% net rental yield until the end of the first five years of the initial investment. At this point, should an exit be required, The Resort Group PLC will commit to resell your property on your behalf.
If our Hotel Management Programme isn’t for you, self-management is an option that allows you to retain complete control of rental rates and the availability of your property at the White Sands Hotel & Spa.
You can do this either with complete independence – where you, as the owner, will be wholly responsible for all marketing, maintenance and management – or by listing it online with a third-party rental company.
This option is of greatest benefit to those who want more than the standard five weeks of personal usage per year, as offered in the Hotel Management Programme. By choosing independent rental, you will be able to keep your second home in the sun readily available for yourself and your friends and family for extended periods of time, while still opening it up to a wider market as and when you want to.
Some of you, of course, won’t want to rent your Cape Verde property out at all, and instead, keep it all to yourself as your very own holiday home in the sun for you to enjoy whenever you want to.
If you decide to make a lifestyle purchase of this nature, you will still benefit from all luxury facilities at the White Sands Hotel & Spa – including access to communal areas, the Resort Pools and lounge areas. You’ll also be able to experience the many bars and restaurants in the Resort on a pay-as-you-go basis and can even indulge in an all-inclusive wristband at an extra cost when you come and stay.
The White Sands Hotel & Spa will be your very own piece of paradise, and with a luxurious 5-star property ready and waiting for you whenever you want to use it, you’ll be able to live your dream lifestyle for many years to come.
