Caribbean: Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has announced plans for the Kimpton Kawana Bay Grenada Resort.

Scheduled to open in early 2019, the property is described as “a hillside retreat tucked away between tropical rainforest cliffs and the world-renowned Grand Anse Beach”.

Owned and developed by True Blue Development Limited, a division of the Tau Capital Group of Companies, Kimpton Kawana Bay Resort will be developed as a partial adaptive reuse with new build expansion. The 146-key resort will feature 101 studio rooms and 45 suites, and 12 additional penthouse apartments will also be available for sale to private owners.

A number of Kawana Bay’s suites will include private pools overlooking Grand Anse Beach. Additional amenities will include an infinity pool, restaurant, lounge and beach bars, fitness centre, spa and water sports facilities.

Mike DeFrino, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants CEO, said: “Ever since we gave the Caribbean its first taste of Kimpton with our Seafire Resort + Spa in Grand Cayman, the region and resorts in particular continue to be areas of focus for our expansion. Grenada offers us the opportunity to further make our mark and introduce Kimpton to an even wider international audience. Kimpton Kawana Bay Resort will easily become a sought-after destination for travellers looking to enjoy a luxurious yet laid back stay experience. We’re thrilled to be working with True Blue Development and look forward to opening our doors in 2019 to reveal this stunning cliffside beachfront retreat.”

Warren Newfield, principal of True Blue Development, said: “Choosing Kimpton as our operating partner was an easy decision for us. We were extremely impressed with Kimpton’s business philosophy and approach, and we share the same vision for the resort and its operating style. We are thrilled to have Kimpton as our operating partner and brand, and welcome them to the team.”

The project also offers investors an opportunity to participate in Grenada‘s Citizenship by Investment (CBI) program, an expedited and efficient first class investment opportunity. CBI prices start at $350,000 per ownership unit. Investors will receive a share of hotel revenue per year and citizenship of Grenada, which features numerous benefits such as access to visa-free travel to more than 115 countries.
