FORT MYERS, FL (August 29, 2012) — The Lubner Group and Clive Daniel Home, internationally recognized for their award-winning hospitality and commercial interiors, has been retained by Pure Beach Resort & Spa on the Caribbean island of Barbados to provide design services and custom furnishings for more than 300 planned condominium villas.
Pure Beach Resort & Spa (www.purebeachresort.com) is a master planned, mixed-use development set against nearly 18 acres on Barbados in the Lesser Antilles in the North Atlantic. The five-star beachfront residence and hotel development is expected to include 309 luxury residential villas and condos plus a boutique hotel and convention facility. Amenities will feature multiple swimming pools and restaurants, bars, boutique shops and entertainment venues.
The development will be executed in phases matching sales absorption rates. Construction of the first phase is expected to begin in February 2012 with completion scheduled for December 2018. The development timeframe will be adjusted to ensure that each completed phase can stand alone with its own share of infrastructure. Sales are estimated to exceed $600 million during the six-year development process and are expected to be enhanced with an international context by an association with Sotheby’s International Realty Barbados and Preferred Residences. (Currently under negotiations.)
Pure Beach Resort & Spa has received widespread support from both the Government and island tourism professionals. It is the single largest government-approved real estate project in Barbados with its site considered one of the last beachfront development opportunities on the island available to accommodate a development of its size.
The list of celebrities visiting Barbados is as endless as the private jets lining the runways, resulting in the island being voted by Expedia as the number one destination in the world to spot a celebrity. Barbados is well known for its celebrity and uber-wealthy visitors and homeowners such as Simon Cowell, Mick Jagger, Hugh Grant, David and Victoria Beckham, Tom Cruise, Tiger Woods, Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney, and Richard Branson.
The new real estate/hospitality star on Barbados is being developed for fractional and full ownership with purchasers expected to be mid- to high-end buyers from the UK, Canada, the U.S., Asia and Continental Europe. Pure Beach Resort & Spa Inc. was registered as a Canadian corporation in April 2011. The Barbados Corporation was registered in May 2011 to carry out the development and construction of the project. Development partners are Mark Purai, Sang H. Park, and Anwar Rabah, all residents of Toronto, Canada.
According to Purai, “We believe Pure Beach will soon become a major destination resort. Because our prospective buyers are seasoned travelers and vacationers who expect the highest in quality surroundings, we knew Lubner Group would be the ideal design partner to help create our desired level of luxury ambiance and transform our dreams into reality.”
The Lubner Group (www.LubnerGroup.com) and Clive Daniel Home (www.clivedaniel.com) of Naples, Florida, offers design and purchasing services with capabilities for crafting custom-designed furniture and total turnkey furnishing packages. This highly specialized work is offered for commercial projects as well as shared-use properties such as timeshare resorts, hotels, fractional ownership and private residence clubs.
Commented Dan Lubner, president of both and the Lubner Group and Clive Daniel Home, “It has been an exciting opportunity for us to provide our design services to Pure Beach Resort at the ground level. Lubner Group will create a new line of custom furnishings specifically for this luxury property, manufactured by Clive Daniel Home. Our team will also coordinate every facet of the design, manufacturing, shipping, and installation process.”
“Pure Beach Resort & Spa is committed to excellence, quality construction and environmental sustainability in all aspects of the development,” added Purai. “Having Lubner Group as a significant partner will enable us to provide a residential product of unsurpassed design excellence.”
