The resort will also feature an exclusive residential component comprised of branded oceanfront and ocean view residences, and just ten exceptional estate home parcels. Amenities will include beachfront pools, tennis courts, Sense, A Rosewood Spa, and a biodynamic farm – all on 8,000 feet of oceanfront.
“We are honored to be the stewards responsible for re-imagining this legendary property,” said Michael Coyle, chief executive officer of developer, Vancouver-based property development company, Replay Destinations. “Together [with Rosewood Hotels & Resorts], we believe that what we will create at Half Moon Bay Antigua will be the finest resort in the Caribbean and one of the finest in the world.”
Replay has appointed global financial advisory firm, Arton Capital as its strategic advisor for Antigua’s citizenship by investment programme and exclusive sales agent in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region for its affluent clientele.
“I fell in love with Half Moon Bay in Antigua the first time I walked on its beach. At that point, I knew it had the potential to become a breathtaking resort. I am thrilled that Replay and Rosewood saw the same opportunity and they are making it happen,” said Armand Arton, founder and president of Arton Capital.
