Banyan Comes to Barbados

Banyan Tree Group today announced that the Singapore-based group recently inked agreements with Bacassa Developments (Barbados) Limited to establish a Joint Venture Development company and an agreement to manage a resort in the plush real estate development at Black Bess Plantation, St Peter, Barbados. The Banyan Tree resort will be built on an elevated five hectares parcel of land that overlooks the Caribbean sea.
Mr Mark King, the Co-Director of Bacassa Developments (Barbados) Limited said, “This is a very exciting time for the entire island of Barbados. The resort, 18-hole golf course and real estate, will be a perfect blend of East meets West. This will significantly shift the paradigm of the tourism product Barbados has to offer. Bacassa looks forward to commencing the Banyan Tree site development works before the year end.”

The resort’s famous pool villas - the first for Barbados - are in the planning stage. The Banyan Tree property is exclusively designed by Architrave Design and Planning to capture the Asian appeal that is synonymous with Banyan Tree. This magnificent resort sits in a commanding position above the prestigious West Coast of Barbados and is surrounded by a kaleidoscopic landscape that includes small cliffs, gullies and dense forestation.
