The Viceroy Hotel Group has signed a deal to open a new resort in the Sambala region of Cape Verde, an archipelago off Africa’s west coast, in 2017.
The hotel will feature 150 guestrooms, a children’s club and will boast a well-equipped water sports center. The highlight of this magnificent place is a breathtaking beauty of Santiago Island, which is sure to make you linger on the West African coast for as long as possible.
While Viceroy Cape Verde is scheduled to open in 2017, SambalaVillage is already equipped to welcome its guests to its luxury resort, built on a plateau above the white sandy beaches of São Francisco Bay. The village atmosphere will calls to mind traditional European resorts while the property itself ensures guests will receive exclusive and personalized service of the highest level.
There is a wide selection of bars, restaurants and shops within the village, but should you wish to further immense yourself in the culture, Santiago’s capital city, Praia, is perfectly located just a stone’s throw from the development. If you enjoy fabulous beaches, beautiful scenery, fascinating people, sunshine, scuba diving, water sports, paragliding, sporting and spa amenities, then you will not be disappointed. The overall impression is of a fascinating and unspoiled holiday destination that caters to sophisticated, contemporary elite travelers seeking redefined grandeur and luxury service.
“Working with Viceroy Hotel Group on The Sambala Community elevates the project by leveraging the brand’s reputation for unparalleled luxury hospitality,” says Jonathan Grepne, chairman of Sambala Investimentos, the developer of the island resort. “We look forward to Viceroy Hotel Group providing leadership and building the vision of this exciting project.”
Current Viceroy Hotel Group properties already include hotels and resorts in Abu Dhabi, Anguilla, Beverly Hills, Maldives, Miami, New York, Palm Springs, Riviera Maya, San Francisco, Santa Monica, Snowmass, St. Lucia and Zihuatanejo with forthcoming openings in New York, Istanbul and Bodrum, Turkey.
