BARBUDA BEACH HOUSE
This former 5-star resort is set on 90 acres of stunning, secluded beach frontage on the southwest point of Barbuda. The original initiative – consisting of a 22-room boutique hotel and facilities such as a restaurant, pool and deck complex, and helicopter landing pad – only takes up some 10 acres in total, which means the development potential is enormous. Currently, the developer is aiming to restore – and expand – the hotel’s former glory. The first phase, which includes renovation and re-establishment of the existing facilities and main services, is expected to start in 2015. This will be followed in 2016 by the second phase, which will add more hotel rooms, new cottage suites, and additional facilities and services.
