The Resort Group PLC has five completed projects in Cape Verde situated on prime beachfront land on the Island of Sal.
MELIÃ Tortuga Beach Resort was completed in May 2011 and was the first Cape Verde project by The Resort Group PLC. Since its launch, it has enjoyed unprecedented success in the industry, winning awards year after year and demonstrating consistently high occupancy levels.
MELIÃ Dunas Beach Resort & Spa was the second Cape Verde project and became operational in November 2014. It is a much larger resort with over 1200 rooms and is a tourist destination in its own right. Established in the market, it attracts high levels of occupancy particularly within the All-Inclusive family holiday market.
Sal’s first adult-only hotels, TUI Sensimar Cabo Verde and MELIÃ Llana Beach Resort & Spa, opened in December 2016. Both offer a stunning range of hotel suites, tropical pools and rejuvenating spa facilities. The two hotels have over 600 suites and can welcome 62,400 tourists per year, creating approximately 500 jobs locally.
The Resort Group has a strong and sustainable business model with consistent growth demonstrated during the last 3 years. The Group benefits from multiple revenue streams and growing Hospitality revenue as more of our Projects are completed. We also benefit from the commercial income and supply chain efficiencies delivered by our vertically integrated businesses.
TRG offers its Resort properties on a freehold purchase basis to private investor clients. Purchasers take advantage of excellent capital growth potential, as well as an on-going rental return, once the Resort is operational.
