There’s a Major New Luxury Real Estate Project in The Bahamas

A world-renowned architect. A Greg Norman golf course. A superyacht marina. The most beautiful water on earth.
There’s a major new luxury real estate in the heart of one of The Bahamas’ most popular destinations, anchored by a superyacht marina, Caribbean Journal Invest has learned.
It is called AGIA, a new real estate destination set to begin construction on the island of Great Exuma.
AGIA is a residential resort and marina community, with a mix of 20 oceanfront and harborfront villas, along with 35 marina and harborfront “pavilions.”
It’s a more than half a billion-dollar project, the vision of team members behind projects like the Setai in Miami and New York and the Amanyara resort in Turks and Caicos.
The villas will span from the sea to the harbor, with several having their own private beaches, and all of them boasting their own private 80-foot floating slips. Ocean and harborfront villa sites range from 1 to 1.5 acres.
Homesite elevations range from 15 to 35 feet.
The villas, designed by world-renowned architect Chad Oppenheim, will range from four to six bedrooms.
The “pavilions” will all come with their own private pool and private floating 50-foot slips.
A second phase will consist of three-story multi-family harborfront units with slips.
Amenities will include a beach and yacht club, including the “O” Bar, the Nassis Restaurant and Private Wine Room; a health and wellness center, a spa, a market, a world-class gym and full access to an adjacent Greg Norman-designed golf course.
The 50-slip floating deepwater superyacht marina will have capacity for vessels up to 400 feet, along with in-slip fueling, in-slip pump out, a marina village, a modern crew facility, a dive center and broad watersports programs, from inshore to offshore fishing.
That’s along with The Bahamas’ first-ever fully-enclosed, modern dry storage for boats up to 50 feet.
“The project is 100 percent shovel ready, with the ability to convey real estate now,” said AGIA Co-Founders Erik Sanderson and George Spiroulias.
It’s the latest addition to what is one of the hottest real estate destinations in the region, highlighted by a planned $65 million international airport terminal currently under construction — joining a new Odyssey FBO nearing completion — both about 10 minutes away from AGIA.
“With all major infrastructure, roads, utilities, inner marina basin excavated and a seawall in place,” Sanderson said, the project is slated to commence upland construction this summer.
It’s a new level of luxury for Great Exuma, with the added benefit of expedited Bahamian residency for all owners at the project. It will also be crypto-friendly, AGIA principals said.
“With Great Exuma being the largest of all Exuma islands, AGIA is the perfect hub and jumping off location for all of the 130-mile-long Exuma chain, which is home to some of the most beautiful waters in the world.”
