Bel Air Plantation is a secluded hideaway, which in the recent past offered a unique level of privacy in the convenience of a resort setting. Nestled on a hillside overlooking a secluded bay and the Atlantic Ocean, the property originally consisted of 11 cottages, a large infinity edge pool, plus the harbour side market, restaurant, gift shop and guest services/reception area. The rooms at Bel Air comprise: 9 one-bedroom cottages and 2 two-bedroom villas, strategically positioned to offer spectacular views of the ocean, the bay, peninsulas across the harbour and evening sunsets. Several have the added bonus of lush mountain vistas.
The former in-house restaurant is a two-story octagonal shaped building sitting on the waterfront. The first level comprised a bar and covered verandah dining area. The second level was utilized as a lounge. Constant breezes may be enjoyed as is a 360 degree view of the ocean, peninsulas and adjacent hills.
The property comprises a total area of approximately 12.4 acres, of which roughly 9.5 acres house the resort buildings and the remaining nearly 2.9 acres consist of a peninsula with breathtaking ocean vistas. This promontory can be developed further to expand upon the existing facilities.
The waterfront locale of Bel Air makes it ideal for water sports enthusiasts who wish to enjoy playful days at the beach, or the romantic couple witnessing the evening’s magnificent sunset at the water’s edge. The yachting fanatic is not excluded, as Bel Air is in boundary with the Grenada Marine Boat Yard.
With the appropriate renovations and some “TLC” this property has the potential to be restored to its former splendor and recapture its glory days as a renowned romantic hideaway offering the best of both worlds; the privacy of cottage accommodation plus the services, amenities and luxuries of a world-class resort.
It is to be noted that an appraisal was carried out on the property in 2011 when the buildings were in their prime. The market value then was estimated at just over US$9,000,000.00.
