Once our developments are in operation, they are managed by one of our knowledgeable hotel brand hospitality partners, helping guarantee a luxury world class guest experience and provide proven global marketing for the Resorts.
We carefully choose these partnerships to ensure the ongoing strength of the Resort while retaining ownership of the development to maintain a close working relationship. We have agreements in place with the world-renowned and experienced hotelier Meliá Hotels International. This strategic partner ensures an enduring 5-star experience for visitors, commercially successful Resorts and provide peace of mind for investors.

Deutsche Hospitality was founded in 1930 by Albert Steigenberger and he secured his first hotel acquisition in Baden-Baden, Germany. Nearly 90 years later, the business is worth an estimated €500 million with 116 hotels in 12 countries on 3 continents and a company headquarters in Frankfurter.
In a move that will sit perfectly with their current African projects, Deutsche Hospitality are set to manage one of our new Boa Vista Resorts – a luxury hotel operating under the 5-star Steigenberger Hotels brand. The development will be a luxurious beachfront destination on the stunning Santa Monica Beach, often said to be the most attractive stretch of coastline on the Island, and the third of our six developments on Boa Vista.
We are in continuous contact with other established hoteliers and hospitality partners regarding the operation of our future Resorts and developments, and as part of our ongoing progress, we have letters of intent with several renowned hotel brands.
