Range Developments Breaks Ground on Six Senses La Sagesse, Grenada

Grenada, St George's. October 01, 2019

Range Developments marked the ground breaking ceremony for the Six Senses La Sagesse, Grenada, during celebrations held on Friday 23 August 2019. The resort property will be built on a promontory in Saint David's Parish, an unspoiled area of remarkable natural beauty boasting ‘one of the top ten beaches in the Caribbean' as described by The Sunday Times.

"The initiation of this project by Range Developments provides a clear demonstration of the confidence of investors in the Grenada economy. The location of the project illustrates Government's commitment to ensuring that development is wholistic and is in fact spread across all parts of the country. The coming of the world renown Six Senses brand will help to further solidify Grenada's position as a top tourist destination. These three factors combined provide irrefutable proof that this Government remains committed to attracting continued investment and creating employment opportunities for the people," said The Honorable Prime Minister of Grenada Dr Keith Mitchell who attended the ceremony.

The project is scheduled to open in 2022 and will create more than 500 jobs during construction, with many more opportunities arising during operations.

"Grenada is a wonderful country, and we have been welcomed warmly," said Mohammed Asaria, Managing Director and Board Member of Range Developments. "Range will create the unimaginable at La Sagesse. It is a destination waiting to be created. The project will be transformative, not just for St David's but the entire State of Grenada. In a very short period of time, La Sagesse will become the second tourism capital in Grenada."

Six Senses' CEO Neil Jacobs added: "We're positioned for exciting growth in the Caribbean while keeping the emphasis on sustainability. This is core to our brand and influences all aspects of the business from the materials we use to how we engage with the local community. Working with Range Developments means we can bring this vision to life, with a little help from the island's striking natural assets."

La Sagesse will be an incomparable master-planned development on one of the best locations in the Caribbean, just 15 minutes' drive from Grenada's airport. It will feature two luxury 5-star hotels, oceanfront villas, spas, retail and watersports facilities.

Range Developments specializes in developing luxury resorts in the Eastern Caribbean and will be working with award winning Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas. As with other Range Developments' projects, investors will be able to participate in the project, and if eligible, apply for citizenship in Grenada.

Architecture & Design: Biophilic Design

The hospitality industry is constantly evolving to meet and exceed guest expectations. As a result, hotels are always on the lookout for new ways to improve the guest experience, and architecture and design is an essential part of this equation. Bold design is often the most effective way to make an exceptional first impression - an impression guests use to distinguish between brands. One design trend that is being embraced worldwide has become known as “Biophilic Design.” Biophilic design is based on the concept of biophilia, which is the theory that human beings have an innate tendency to seek out nature, natural elements, and natural forms. Biophilic design is more than hotels simply adding a surplus of plants; it involves incorporating specific design elements into a hotel in order to imbue it with a sense of wellness and well-being. Some of those elements include exposure to natural lighting; views of nature and rooms with a view; natural architectural patterns; salvaged or reclaimed woods of all types; reclaimed metals; sustainably sourced stone; living green walls and vertical gardens; and direct and indirect exposure to nature. Hotels that have incorporated biophilic design into their properties are reaping the benefits associated with this trend including reduced stress responses, better air quality, lower energy costs, and more positive guest reviews. Biophilic design has also been shown to improve guest moods and to satisfy consumer demand for environmental responsibility. Savvy hotel owners and managers are aware that nature-inspired elements enhance their guests' comfort and well-being, which is why this trend is becoming so prevalent. Biophilic design is just one topic in the fields of hotel architecture and design that will be examined in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
