Cotton Bay Golf & Resort, Sal, Cape Verde
- The first resort of this scale and quality on the island of Sal
- Year round rental potential
- International standard 36 hole golf course
- Marina with 600 yacht moorings
Cotton Bay Golf & Resort is quite distinct from any other resort on Sal Island thanks to its exciting and innovative design. The architecture of the development will be horizontal and open, and will mainly be constructed of wood and glass - creating a real sense of light and space.
This outstanding and ambitious project will also be one the first developments on Sal that introduces a number of measures as part of an eco-compatible programme, for example; there will be a high ratio of natural green area to development area, salt water will be used in all the water features as well as an onsite nursery where indigenous plants will be cultivated for sole use in the resort.
The development’s first class sports facilities, laid back lifestyle and luxurious surroundings have been carefully designed to appeal to the growing tourism sector whilst still respecting and working with the natural environment and landscape.
The resort will include a 36 hole golf course as well as a marina and harbour that will boast 600 yacht moorings. An exclusive, seaside resort 'shore area' will be specially created alongside the marina and the architecture of the residences here will mirror the traditional, colonial buildings that are found on Sal island.
The 'shore area' will be complemented by a beautiful promenade that will be constructed on the inner side of the harbour, which will link all of the resort’s commercial spaces as well as its leisure facilities, casino, bars and restaurants. Also central to the resort will be the waterways that will enhance and harmonise the development. There will be lakes, waterfalls and streams dotted about the golf course and residential areas.
Cotton Bay will be made up of 10 key residential areas - all sympathetically designed to reflect the country’s culture and personality. Many of the villas will enjoy an enviable front line beach location and will range in size from 120m² to 350m² with 2, 3, 4 or 5 bedrooms. The apartments and duplexes of 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms will be light and spacious with terraces and/or gardens and a communal swimming pool.
Around the marina, the properties will have the feeling of a traditional harbour village. There will also be a Cape Verdean Village which will include the resort’s main shops, bars and restaurants.
Residents and visitors will also be able to enjoy a range of leisure facilities including; communal swimming pools, a water park, a botanical park and children’s playgrounds.
The beautiful Cape Verde Islands are located in the mid-Atlantic Ocean, some 450 kilometres to the west of Senegal, off the west coast of Africa, making them Europe’s closest tropical islands. This world famous archipelago is made up of 9 inhabited islands which form two classic island chains that enjoy glorious weather all year round.
Cotton Bay Golf and Resort is located in a stunning setting in 417 hectares of countryside in the Algodoeiro region on the south-west coast of Sal – the largest island in Cape Verde. The development is a 5 minute drive from Santa Maria, the island’s main town and a short 15 km drive from the International Airport.
