Antigua CIP Approved Papaya Hotel and Spa

Papaya Hotel and Spa is a planned luxury boutique hotel within Rendezvous Bay, the landmark National Park residential community being created on Antigua’s spectacular south coast. Rendezvous Bay on the chic south coast of Antigua is a perfect undisturbed paradise. Visible only to those who sail by, the 700 acres of rolling hills and valley floor are encircled by 1000-foot elevations creating a natural nirvana.

The resort plan includes just 80 exceptional homesites of two to ten acres each, a 50-acre nature park and Papaya Hotel & Spa as its centrepiece.  Residential homes in this spectacular new community will offer great personal privacy and easy access to an array of amenities including the organic farm, tropical forest hiking trails, sports facilities, and the nature park behind the renowned Rendezvous Beach.

Papaya hotel and spa is an approved real estate project by the Antigua and Barbuda CIU which requires a minimum of $400,000 property investment to qualify for citizenship under the investment programme.

Scheduled to open in 2017, Papaya Hotel & Spa will be the centrepiece of the exclusive Rendezvous Bay community.

The 55 one- and two-bedroom villas at Papaya Hotel & Spa are the perfect opportunity for fully-managed property ownership within Rendezvous Bay.

Ownership Benefits

Hotel villa owners and their families will be able to use their property and enjoy preferential treatment at the hotel facilities.

Each villa can be purchased as a freehold property and will be operated in the hotel for income production but allow the freeholder up to four weeks of owner time per year for personal usage.

Investors can also purchase a fractional ownership of the villa, which allows for owner occupancy ranging from two to three weeks per year and reduces the investment much closer to minimum required to make an application to the citizenship program.
