Dermot Desmond Plans $100 million Investment for a Resort on Grenadines Estate, The Grenadines are in the early stages of 10 year economic boom and this injection of life will certainly make it an exciting time for the buyer of this plot.

The Canouan luxury resort redevelopment plans are back on track as Billionaire financier and Celtic FC backer Dermot Desmond has agreed to partner the redevelopment project under a $100 million agreement. The ultra luxury hotel and complex is located on the sunny island of Canouan which is a part of the Caribbean Grenadine Islands. Desmond has other investments too, in the super luxury resort sector. The exclusive Sandy Lane resort in Barbados is a major investment in the sector.

JP McManus and John Magnier are the other significant investors in the Sandy Lane Resort. They had bought the resort for €60m way back in 1996. They have spent close to €150m on the renovation and redevelopment of the 360-acre site. The site includes two championship golf courses. The resort is patronised by the super rich and the celebrities. Tiger Woods married his former wife Elin Nordegren overlooking one of the Sandy Lane courses in 2004.

Desmond’s new investment will be handled by his IIU investment company. As a joint venture deal with the CRD group it will invest a $100 million over three years for the construction of a boutique ultra-luxury hotel within the 1,200 acres of the Grenadines Estate. Desmond is aiming to turn the Grenadine beach island into one of the world’s top luxury resorts.
