Developers of the luxury Pure Beach Resort & Spa to be built in Foul Bay, St Phillip, say the development should provide job opportunities for several residents and small business operators in and around that southern community and the wider parish.
Ecoterra International – a Canadian-based company, said they were committed to “utilizing the services of suppliers and workers in the St Phillip area wherever possible”.
In a flyer distributed to residents recently, the developers said they were pleased to be working with Loretta Newton of Ruthie’s Garden Centre, “and will be using Newton’s services on an ongoing basis during the development of the property”.
Ecoterra International has been described as a leader in providing “enviable investment opportunities” in prime resort and waterfront development throughout the world, with more than 40 years’ real estate development experience.
The company said it would ensure that there would be uninterrupted beach access during and after the building phase.
“We are committed to environmental sustainability and to providing an excellent return on investment to our investor partners. Pure Beach Resort and Spa will be a five-star resort, of which the design of the buildings and the amenities will be reflective of styles in Barbados,” read the flyer.
“We are committed to environmentally sustainable best practices. We are pleased to be associated with Sunrise Community Group and look forward to supporting its upcoming programmes.”
The project broke ground last Wednesday. Upon completion, the luxury resort will consist of five distinct clusters of buildings, including a boutique hotel. There will be 300 condominium suites of one, two or three bedrooms, and penthouse suites.
The amenities, according to the flyer, will include seven main swimming pools, multiple fine dining restaurants representing various cuisines, boutique shops, conference facilities, a beach bar and entertainment venues.
Pure Beach Resort & Spa will be constructed on approximately one kilometre of beachfront property. It is the innovation of a group of Korean, Canadian and Middle Eastern investors.
