The 400 acre Kittitian Hill resort that is currently under construction in the parish of St. Pauls has however also been a source of contention nationally, as questions have been raised about the government’s decision to use state funds to finance the project.
But now, the developers are hoping that the project’s recent addition to Preferred Residences would help to boost the image and sales for the units being constructed. Preferred Residences is a hospitality branded membership and exchange programme for luxury shared ownership resorts, offered by an operating business of the Interval Leisure Group.
According to David Gilbert, the Executive Vice President of Resort Sales and Marketing for Preferred Residences, his company is pleased to welcome Kittitian Hill to the programme, as a top quality property (in the making), that would provide members with memorable vacation experiences.
Mr. Val Kempadoo, Managing Director of Belmont Resorts, Ltd., developer of Kittitian Hill, is quoted as saying in a recent government release that they are very pleased to affiliate Kittitian Hill with Preferred Residences and to welcome its members to the exceptional property.
“We designed the resort to incorporate all the elements that are essential for environmentally responsible development in the Caribbean, so that it will become a model for sustainable luxury living,” said Kempadoo.
The government release indicated that the first phase of construction, which features hotel cottages, villas, golf course and clubhouse, beach club, pools, restaurants, bars, and shops, is currently underway and is slated for completion in November 2012.
The second phase includes the village, spa, and spa cottages, and is scheduled to begin the following year. All components of Kittitian Hill will be managed by Sedona Resorts International, a division of Sedona Resorts, said the statement.
It is being reported by government that in addition to the sales and marketing opportunities for developers, Preferred Residences offers owners “high-touch” exchange services and year-round leisure and lifestyle benefits tailored especially for sophisticated, affluent travelers.
These include preferential pricing at participating Preferred Hotel Group affiliated properties worldwide, complimentary Prestige membership in Priority Pass™ airport VIP lounge program, personal concierge services accessible 24/7 online and via phone, and complimentary annual membership in Hertz #1 Club Gold®. Master Plan is courtesy of Kittitian Hill Resort, according to government.
