The Business Opportunity
The business is in very good standing and fully operational. All 10 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, restaurant, kitchen, massage pyramid, pool, lounge and bar are in good condition. It is presently operated as a villa/hotel with the option to book the entire resort for:
special interest groups etc at a flat fee.
This has proven to be very successful and will continue with a number of future reservations already on the books.
It has benefited through steadily growing revenue from especially destination wedding groups that enjoy the idea of having their own private villa with all the services of a resort. It is not uncommon to have large wedding gatherings of up to 40 and 50 guests with guests staying in additional villas nearby.
Guests have the option of using the facilities of the Oasis at Le Sport Hotel as well as Cariblue Beach 200 meters and Smugglers Cove Beach app. 500

The Villa is a locally registered company that is in turn owned by an IBC. This will in case of a sale allow for easy and swift share transfers.
