Work is advanced on these spacious single-storey detached five-bedroom, four-bathroom beachfront villas in the Dunas Beach Resort and Spa on Cape Verde’s Sal Island where The Resort Group Plc has sold more than three-quarters of the 1,205 fully-furnished properties planned

Bucking the trend in many overseas property markets, The Resort Group Plc has sold off-plan more than three-quarters of the 1,205 fully-furnished villas, apartments, studios and hotel suites planned for its flagship five-star development in Cape Verde, it was announced today.

The Dunas Beach Resort and Spa – to be managed by the world’s largest resort hotel group, Sol Meliá – is under construction on the west coast of Sal Island where work is advanced on the first properties scheduled for completion next summer.

Seven spacious single-storey, detached five-bedroom, four-bathroom beachfront villas – already snapped up by investors – form part of the first development phase of 54 villas, 80 apartments and a Meliã Gabi Club, a sophisticated bar and grill located right on the beach, with a pool, day beds and sun-loungers.

Commenting on The Resort Group’s soaring sales, marketing director Adam Ellis reveals that many purchasers on Dunas Beach Resort and Spa are pension investors buying through a SIPP (Self Invested Personal Pension).

He says: “They have been attracted by our confident prediction – backed by global real estate services provider Savills – of annual capital growth of up to nine per cent over the next five years and double digit rental yields. All this means we only have a small number of our first phase properties still available.”

Current prices of the properties at Dunas Beach Resort and Spa, which vary with size and location, start at €139,950 for a studio rising to €449,950 for a three-bedroom villa.
