SIX Senses Residencies Freedom Bay have announced the completion of the first beach villa in Soufriere, which will be opened as their first show villa this year.
The development has reached new bounds with the practical completion of the first resort villa in June 2015, and the completion of a further four villas by the end of July.
Construction of the first private residence villa commenced in 2014, with an estimated completion date of 2016. Alongside the construction of the luxury villas, the next key milestones shall be the completion of the hotel front, back of house and luxury spa due for the hotel’s estimated opening date in November 2016.
Wayne Girard, chairman of Six Senses Residences said that over the past months, the developers had concentrated on the construction of the beach front villas which will be completed soon. “We are now involved in an intensive planning component which will usher a significant construction programme, culminating in the opening of the resort in late 2016”, he said.
According to Girard, the deep commitment of the developer to preserve the environment also creates challenges in the construction activities. He said: “The siting of a villa for example goes through a series of permutations to ensure that there is minimal effect on the landscape and it is most interesting to observe how the new villas are interwoven into the existing foliage.
“Over the next few weeks there will be a vamping up of construction activity, which will create much needed economic activity within the town of Soufriere and generate many jobs for the local residents. We will be building Phase 1A, which comprises one bed and two bed villas, and also establishing the reception building and restaurants to support the start-up of the resort.
