There’s a new Four Seasons resort coming to the region.

The government of the Bahamas, Cotton Bay Holdings and Mine Holdings have signed a “Heads of Agreement” for a Four Seasons resort on the island of Eleuthera.

The five-star, $100 million “boutique” resort project is slated to include 115 rooms, 40 private residences and an 18-hole Robert Trent Jones II golf course, along with a spa, restaurants, a commercial shopping centre and recreational facilities.

The project is projected to create 200 construction jobs and 300 permanent jobs upon completion.

Cotton Bay Holdings’ Dr Luis Carlos Sarmiento Angulo and Four Seasons executives including Alinio Azevedo, vice president for development for Americas region.

The project has been in the works for some time.
