There will be a wide range of properties available at the White Sands Hotel & Spa and an incredible array of 5-star facilities so it is exciting to see how far construction has come on the shores of Santa Monica beach. The beautiful Boa Vista, which will play home to White Sands Hotel & Spa when it opens, boasts surrounding turquoise waters and pure white beaches, from which the development takes its name.
The complex is set to have 835 luxurious properties for guests to choose from, including duplex and penthouse hotel suites, and a range of stunning villas. The Resort itself will be split into adult-only and family sections – something the Group planned into the design to ensure that each side provides tailored guest experiences for everyone who comes to stay.
Our latest drone footage shows that the private beachfront villa foundations have been dug and construction has begun in earnest. While the villas start to take shape, the swim-ups can also be seen alongside the deluxe apartments, which will also enjoy views of the open Atlantic Ocean and the famous Cape Verde sunset.
This work has been coming along at a good pace but the main focus recently has been the blocks themselves. There is up to 300 men on the busy working site at any given stage, working hard to ensure the project progresses as quickly as possible. That hard work can clearly be seen in the latest update from the apartment blocks, with the elegant interior design starting to go into selected properties and shared areas. It’s an eye-opening view into what the world-class Resort will look like when it launches in early 2019.
White Sands Hotel & Spa is split into family and adult-only sections, ensuring that all guests enjoy the highest quality of service tailored to their individual needs.
The family orientated facilities include two separate children’s pools, a baby pool and adventure playground as well as a kids club for entertainment day and night. There is also a wet bar and poolside restaurant serving up first-class refreshments throughout the day.
The main hotel building will offer an exceptional choice of fine dining restaurants. A collection of spacious bars, including a relaxing lobby bar, sumptuous champagne bar and vibrant sports bar will satisfy all tastes.
Enjoy a day of unashamed luxury and pampering in the opulent YHI Spa® – the ideal complement to those long and lazy days in the sun. The beach area offers an array of chic and modern bars too, including the illustrious Gabi Club®, the ultimate beach-club experience offering guests a choice of relaxing Bali beds, secluded seating and luxury pool, complete with sun-loungers and swim-up bar. A truly unforgettable setting for enjoying a cocktail at sunset.
The Portuguese meaning of Boa Vista is ‘good view’ and this is certainly true of our White Sands Hotel & Spa. It sits on land which gently slopes all the way down to the beach, providing almost every property on the Resort with a panoramic sea view.
There are 835 stunning Resort properties across White Sands Hotel & Spa, including a range of lavish suites with their own swim-up pools, whirlpool baths and hot tubs, as well as larger penthouse and duplex-style suites. There is also a selection of exclusive villas with private gardens & plunge pools for even more luxury.
All properties are finished to the highest specification with beautifully designed interiors using the finest furnishings, fixtures and premium appliances.
The growing demand for all-inclusive sunshine holidays shows no signs of slowing down. Busy lifestyles, convenience and value for money have led to continued growth in these type of holidays.
However, there are only a few destinations that deliver the perfect holiday blend of endless sunshine, magnificent beaches and a warm and welcoming culture. Cape Verde is one such destination, and as a result, more and more holiday-makers are visiting every year.
In fact, Tourism numbers have increased 115%* since 2000, and with high demand for quality accommodation outstripping current levels of supply, this trend is set to continue for many years to come.
Therefore, with its year round climate and thriving tourism market, Cape Verde delivers the perfect economic and environmental conditions for a rewarding property investment.
Purchasing one of our luxurious 5-star resort properties opens up a world of options, rewards and ownership benefits.
All of our apartments, rooms, suites and villas are sold on a freehold basis, individually registered under separate legal title and that means you own unencumbered title to your Property.
Therefore, you decide how your property is managed, and how it works for you as an investment. Whether you decide to retain the property for private family use, rent the property independently via a letting agent or sign up to our Hotel Managed Rental Program, the choice is entirely yours.
A lifestyle purchase
A luxurious holiday home in the sun is part of most people’s dream lifestyle, and you may decide to keep yours to yourself. If you do decide to buy as a lifestyle choice, then you can still benefit and experience all the luxurious facilities including access to communal areas, the Resort pools and lounge areas.
You will also be able to enjoy the many bars and restaurants on a pay as you go basis, or indulge in an all-inclusive wristband during your stay at an extra cost. Access to the wireless network is complimentary and housekeeping is also available at an extra charge.
It will be your piece of paradise, a luxurious property with all the 5-star services you would expect from a world renowned hotel brand.
Independent Rental Purchase
Many of our clients like to self-manage their properties, either fully independently by renting it to their network of family and friends, or listing their property online with an independent rental company.
This combines the lifestyle benefits of a holiday home in the sun with additional rental income. It may also benefit those looking for more personal usage than the standard 5 weeks per year offered within the Hotel Rental Program. It means you retain control of how your property is managed, setting the rental rate per week, and when it is available for paying guests.
The same benefits that you enjoy at the Resort will be available to your rental guests, as well as the option for purchasing additional extras such as the all-inclusive wristbands, spa treatments and housekeeping.
