White Sands Hotel & Spa is the latest development from The Resort Group PLC. Construction began in December 2015, and the Resort is right on-schedule to open its doors to paying guests late next year.
Situated on Boa Vista – the eastern-most Island in Cape Verde – White Sands Hotel & Spa takes its name from the powdery-white sand dunes and stunning beaches that are just footsteps away, 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, and yet it is the least densely populated, meaning that it retains its rustic feel and undiscovered vibe – the perfect combination for relaxing getaways.
Indeed, tourism is an ongoing success story on Cape Verde, as visitor numbers have increased 115% year-over-year since 2000. Until recently, this has largely been driven by the rising number of visits to the neighbouring Island of Sal, with Boa Vista remaining a well-kept secret during that time. However, today, more and more people are choosing Boa Vista, attracted by the 55km of unspoilt beaches, the mountainous landscapes and the Island’s rich variety of wildlife – both on the shores and in the sea. The Island plays host to the third most important nesting site for loggerhead turtles in the world, while humpback whales make their breeding ground in the waters around the Island.
Sal Rei is the capital of Boa Vista, and a shining example of a traditional Cape Verdean town, with a culture that blends both African and Portuguese influences. A leisurely walk along the characteristic cobbled streets greets visitors with a patchwork of multi-coloured buildings, which house an abundance of restaurants, cafes and lively bars.
This is the setting for White Sands Hotel & Spa. The Cape Verde Government has committed to major touristic development on Boa Vista, investing in the Island’s infrastructure – including new roads, improved power supplies and desalination plants – and approving plans for new hotels and Resorts. If you’re looking to make an overseas property investment that will serve both as a holiday destination and a means to secure high rental returns from tourists seeking luxury accommodation, then look no further than White Sands Hotel & Spa. And the great news is, that with The Resort Group PLC, you can create an ideal property investment that’s designed around you.
Something for All Types of Investor
There are 835 luxury properties spanning 16 different categories at White Sands Hotel & Spa. They include a range of duplex-style and penthouse suites, as well as private villas with whirlpool baths, swim-up pools and hot tubs. Each one is luxurious, ultra-stylish, and finished to the highest specifications with beautifully designed interiors using the finest fixtures, furnishings and premium appliances.
The Resort itself has also been thoughtfully split into adults-only and family-friendly areas. This means that no matter if you are looking for a property investment where you can enjoy plenty of sunshine and holiday fun with your family, or one which will serve as a luxurious base while going out to explore Boa Vista’s late-evening, fine-dining experiences and thriving nightlife, White Sands Hotel & Spa has a property that will meet your needs.
The wide range of Resort facilities also ensures that all interests are catered for. Six restaurants are being built at White Sands Hotel & Spa – these include four themed restaurants offering a range of dining experiences, plus two large buffet-style restaurants, ideally suited for families. A variety of bars are also on offer – including a champagne bar, a sports bar, a lobby bar and a nightclub – while swim-up bars in the Resort’s pools mean that a refreshing cocktail or ice-cold beer are never more than a splash away.
For families, there’s a baby pool and two children’s pools, as well as a kids’ club and an adventure playground, providing plenty of entertainment for all ages day and night. Then there’s the water sports centre, the fitness centre, tennis courts, and beach ball courts all to be enjoyed, not to mention the YHI Spa and world-famous Gabi Club where you can relax after an exciting day of fun-filled activities.
A Rewarding Range of Ownership Options
Purchasing a luxurious 5-star Resort property at the White Sands Hotel & Spa with The Resort Group PLC opens up a treasure chest of rewards, options and ownership benefits for investors. All properties are sold on a freehold basis and are individually registered under separate legal title, meaning that you will own unencumbered title to your property.
This means that you get to decide how your property is managed to ensure your investment works the way you want it to. You may, for instance, want to keep the property entirely for private family use, and enjoy all the lifestyle benefits of owning your very own dream home in the sun. Alternatively, you may want to rent the property independently, either to your own network of family and friends, or listing it with an independent rental company.
Your third option is to sign up with our Hotel Managed Program, which means that the Resort Group PLC will fully-manage your luxury property on your behalf, taking care of occupancy, rent collection, maintenance and cleaning. It also means that your property will be marketed to millions of holidaymakers worldwide, maximising the opportunity to capitalise on the growing Cape Verde tourist market and see that your property is occupied throughout the year.
Your Dream Property Investment with Assured Returns
Everyone who chooses our Hotel Managed Program has the option to holiday in their property for up to five weeks every year. And with our 12/7/5 Property Options offer, investors are able to reap all the benefits of a lifestyle investment while still enjoying 12% assured returns from day one of purchase – even while the Resort is still in construction. When the doors open next year, you will then enjoy a guaranteed 7% net rental yield over the following five years, after which, should an exit be required, The Resort Group PLC will commit to resell the property on your behalf.
The wide range of management and property investment options at White Sands Hotel & Spa presents an unrivalled opportunity for a property investment designed around you. Adult-only or family-friendly, fully-manged or independent rental – White Sands Hotel & Spa has it all.
