There will soon be a new way to stay at one of Antigua’s most prestigious luxury residential resorts.
The island’s Tamarind Hills is planning to debut the third phase of its project with a boutique residential resort component.
The development consists of 43 one- and two-bedroom units; it will also feature a “Caribbean bar and grill,” along with a new reception area and an updated gym facility.
Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Minister Charles Fernandez said he was “pleased with the progress made with the development despite the impact of COVID-19.”
He said it was a “great addition to the country’s tourism product going into a very crucial 2020/2021 season.”
The development, which had initially been set for a soft opening this summer, is now targeting the start of the 2020/2021 winter tourist season.
Tamarind Hills is part of a growing wave of residential resort developments in Antigua, which has been one of the region’s hottest investment destinations in recent years.
That includes new projects from brands like Waldorf-Astoria and Rosewood also in the pipeline.
Antigua has tentatively planned to begin welcoming visitors as soon as next month, and Tamarind Hills CEO Rufus Gobat said the development was planning on offering rentals of some of its private residences in the shorter term, once approved by the Ministry of Health’s new protocols.
Those rentals will include a total of six villas and four townhomes, along with nine apartments ranging from two to five rooms.
All of those are located on ocean or beachfront with access to private pools.
Antigua officially opened for tourism on June 4. Tamarind’s existing accommodations are among those open for travelers right now.
