Construction is to start soon on the US$30 million Silver Reef Resort on St. Kitts’ Frigate Bay.

The project involves the construction of 54 one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments and 8 duplex villas, two swimming pools and a small, but much needed, 12,000 square foot commercial area, which has attracted local entrepreneurs wishing to bring their expertise in the form of restaurants, shops and a bank.

“This exciting development is unique in its combination of smart condominium apartments and exclusive private villas laid out in a lush, tropical setting of thoughtfully landscaped gardens punctuated with signature pools and cabanas.  Its stunning location, running beside the immaculate Royal St. Kitts Golf Course will make it a landmark resort,” said Chairman of Silver Reef, Mr. Sebastian Mottram.

He said that the 4.5 acre Silver Reef Resort has been 18 months in the planning and it is anticipated that it will be another 20 months in the execution.

Seven town houses have been completed in total; 5 in Central Basseterre and 2 in East Basseterre.  Last year the “town house concept” was a new one in the Federation and some persons were apprehensive concerning sharing land space, however, it has now become very popular and highly desired, with over 1000 applications at the NHC.
