Important factors to consider in residence planning
Tamarind Hills, Antigua
Tamarind Hills’ collection of beautifully designed villas takes luxury to new heights. The development’s range of beach and oceanfront villas offers guests a classical Caribbean getaway in a secure and picturesque location — the finest in Antigua.
The development is located on the south-west coast of Antigua, between two of the most attractive beaches in the Caribbean — Ffryes and Darkwood, with a boardwalk linking the two beaches — providing guests with exclusive access, be it for a quick swim, a stroll on the white sand, some light water sport, or deep-sea exploration.
Tamarind Hills is close to retail outlets, bars, restaurants, the marina, the golf course/estate, and many other attractions. For those looking to experience the natural beauty of the island, there are plenty of walking and hiking trails, as well as a zipline for the more daring.
The villa cluster is about 20 minutes away from Nelson’s Dockyard, which was officially recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in mid-2016.
The development has been operational for several years, and offers a successful rental management program and returns. The island of Antigua is one of the world’s premier high-end yachting destinations, and as such offers the potential to generate year-round rental income.
Whole-ownership freehold properties range from one- to five-bedroom options, all featuring a contemporary Caribbean design with private pools, wrap-around terraces, and European kitchens and bathrooms. Owner and rental parking, 24-hour security, private chefs, and concierge services are the garnish on this delectable offering.
The concierge team offers an array of services, including but not limited to pre-arrival grocery shopping, private yoga classes, and in-villa spa treatments, which all serve to ensure that guests have the most restful, relaxing, and rejuvenating time in Antigua. The exclusive development also offers access by helicopter and private plane, and private boat charter can be arranged.
Other resort facilities to be completed in 2018 include fine-dining and beachfront restaurants, a gym and spa, a children’s club, and conference facilities, making Tamarind Hills a full-service and holistic development.
In 2017, Tamarind Hills was ranked International Property Awards’ Best Antiguan Residential Resort Development. The development is the work of Island Heights Ltd., an experienced and well-known Caribbean group that also offers cost guarantees, and additional special tax incentives, to buyers.
Luxury properties are available from USD 400,000 to USD 3 million, with completed and off-plan options available for all 100 units. All Tamarind Hills properties qualify the buyer to apply for Antiguan citizenship, which provides passport holders with visa-free access to 135 countries, including the UK and Europe’s Schengen states.
Antigua has a new international airport that offers daily connecting flights to the US, Canada, and Europe. With the airport only 10 km away, Tamarind Hills guests are assured of the peace and quiet befitting a resort island.
