Branded Resort Hotel: 4 Star Level
This Concept could include:

This 510-acre site of Cape Development is located in Mayaro on the southeastern coast of Trinidad. It borders the majestic Atlantic Ocean to the east, the lush tropical Victoria
Mayaro Forest Reserve to the west, the Lagon Doux River to the northeast, and the Atlantic West Residential Development to the south. The almost uninterrupted coconut tree-lined Mayaro Guayaguayare Road passes through the site separating an 86-acre block with a 1.1km stretch of unspoilt sandy beach from the rest of the estate.

The Cape Development site is relatively flat near the sea and undulating west of the Mayaro Guayaguayare Road allowing for a view of the Atlantic. The estate can be divided into five sub-communities: the shoreline; the estuarine along the mouth of the Lagon Doux River and Mangrove Pond; the wetland/marshland adjacent to the river; the remnant coconut plantation on both sides of the main road; and the inland woodland forest.

Close proximity to the historically and ecologically rich Point Radix and Nariva Swamp respectively, to the north, also add to the appeal of the location. Mayaro is also known for its eco-activities and archaeological sites of which Lagon Doux is home to one.

The estate is 1 ½ hours from Piarco International Airport and is traversed by the main arterial road that leads to the south east of Trinidad. In addition, Mayaro, the town of Rio Claro to the west and Guayaguayare to the south provide essential services. Lagon Doux on the Mayaro coastline is welcome as a destination since it is not currently served by a major resort.

~ Water, electricity, telephone and sewage are easily accessible to the estate.
~ Town and Country Planning Outline Permission was granted for:
Two (2) 300 – room hotels, sports and leisure facilities including an 18-hole golf course and 300 residential villas.
~ Town and Country Planning Final Approval has been granted for 129 housing and town-house lots on the beach-front.
