      CONSTRUCTION


      Our construction team is located on site and they have completed 2 villas in the last year as well as our central facility, the Casa Grande. Working from the final design drawing an agreed timetable and a fixed cost, they will build your villa over a 6-8 month period depending on the design. To minimize disruption and insure quality, security and budget compliance, we do not allow outside contractors on site.


      Regular site progress reports are sent and with real time web cam conferences our project manager will take you on a tour of site progress each week. You are welcome to visit the site at anytime and we offer a 30% discount on our published room rates during the construction period for purchasers

      Each site offered has unique and specific natural characteristics. There are stunning views from all of the sites of white sand beaches with island cays in the distance. The sites are all serviced with underground electrics, mains water from our own spring fed reservoir and fiber optic communication cable. The sites are all blessed with cooling trade winds and set in a mild tropical climate.

      DESIGN


      Once you select your peninsula, beachfront or ridge top ocean view lot you will meet with Lane Pettigrew, Architect Laureate of the Caribbean, for a series of design meetings to refine the design of your residence for your particular site starting with our model plans. When the design is done, our design team will define a project brief with exact areas that meets your fixed budget.


      You will be guided how to use our selection book for finishes and fittings to insure the best quality for the look you want.

      “After designing more than a 100 resorts and residences in 25 Caribbean countries and receiving many prestigious awards, I looked for a special destination to create my own island resort. I found Guanaja and bought the best site; a paradise of 50 acres on a private peninsula with a half mile of beach on one side and a pristine turquoise bay on the other. I knew this would be a winner and ultimately the best of all”
