Ecoterra International is gearing up to breakground on the exciting PURE Beach Resort & Spa, Barbados’ newest luxury shared ownership resort opportunity. The planned resort is situated on the magnificent pristine Southeast Coast of arguably the Caribbean’s most successful and well-organised nation. Messrs Mark Purai and Sang Park are the driving force behind this grand project. These dynamic developers share their experience and vision for PURE Beach Resort & Spa and their motives for choosing Barbados as the host for a series of superlative PURE Beach shared ownership Resorts, they intend to develop in the world’s most beautiful and stable locations.
W HY BARBADO S? Mark and Sang do not hesitate to explain Ecoterra’s multi-level decision to develop the PURE Beach concept in Barbados: “…Barbados is a unique microcosm of the best this world has to offer. Indeed recently Barbados was awarded the much sought after designation of “developed” country, based purely on the Human
Developed Index! This tiny Country of only 166 sq. miles boasts a population of 280, 000, yet possesses a strong, stable economy more vibrant than virtually the rest of the Caribbean combined!” Barbados effectively has neither a history of economic recession, nor any severe negative fluctuations in the price of real estate. There are three poignant contributing factors to Barbados success; first of all it is blessed to be outside the natural paths of hurricanes, and secondly its solid democratic government is firmly based upon British C ommon Law and lastly but perhaps most importantly, since independence from Great Britain in 1966, Barbados has made universal education its paramount priority! W e believe that the unique attractions offered by Barbados make it a perfect travel destination. “Including the O istins Fish Market and Friday Fish Fry, and there is quaint Bridgetown itself with its many C olonial Buildings and terrific Boutiques. The island’s W est C oast (also called the Platinum Coast) offers some of the best restaurants, for more delightful dining. The W est Coast is perfect for Big Game Fishing for Marlin, W ahoo, Sailfish or Barracuda or lazy Catamaran Cruises if that is your cup of tea. All of these sites are only 30 minutes away from PURE Beach Resort and Spa! There is always more to do and explore in beautiful Barbados!”
FRO M AN IN VESTO RS PO IN T O F VIEW : W hy Buy into PURE Beach Resort & Spa? Mark and Sang explain that there are a number of reasons why the PURE Beach project is such a great investment; “…first of all, we believe in the stability of Government and Society in Barbados and the proven increased profit potential of the Barbados real estate market is another captivating inducement for people to buy into the Pure Beach Project which they can do so with the firm knowledge that their investment will steadily appreciate in the years to come. For many the investment itself is not even the most important
aspect of their decision, a lot of our purchasers are putting their money down because of the fantastic lifestyle they will enjoy at the PURE Beach Resort & Spa and indeed throughout their entire stay in Barbados!
Facilities and Amenities PURE Beach is an enviable, master planned five-star beachfront residence hotel development, set within a lush tropical landscape, located on the South-east C oast of Barbados. The expansive beachfront stretches over 1 km in the parish of St. Philip, the largest yet the least populated parish on the island. The beaches of the Southeast Coast combine the best elements of all Barbados’ beaches and are recognised as the most attractive on the island with their soft pink and white sands, tranquil palms and irresistible turquoise waters.
PURE Lifestyle Residents of PURE Beach will have an impressive choice of five (5) swimming pools with swim-up bars, conference facilities, boutique shops, a luxury spa, underwater activities, access to a vibrant night life and entertainment venues as well as multiple fine-dining restaurants representing various cuisines. The Resort’s outdoor component (terraces/balconies) will bring the outdoors in. It will comprise of 20% to 30% of the total space in all suites and will be finished to a high luxury-living level. Even the road-ways and walk-ways around the resort are a mirror effect of the naturally winding roads of Barbados itself, completing a lush, unspoiled people-friendly community. This setting will make it perfect for the resort to cater to weddings, conferences and tours of the spectacular countryside. W ithout a doubt, PURE Beach has quickly become recognised as one of the last great beachfront development opportunities in Barbados.
