First Hilton resort in African Archipelago

8th February 2008 Print
Dunas Beach Resort It has been reported recently in A Semana, Cape Verde’s newspaper, that the beautiful island of Sal has been chosen as the first Hilton resort in the African archipelago. The 5* Hilton resort is due to open in 2010.

“This is superb news”, says Darren Mitchell, Director of Cape V, specialists in the Cape Verde region. “These beautiful and largely undeveloped islands are like the Caribbean islands 20 years ago. They offer unspoilt beaches, clear seas, friendly people and a layback approach to life in a climate of warm, sunny weather.

As with the Caribbean, there needs to be a balance between being virtually uninhabited and open for tourism. The arrival of the Hilton Group gives much kudos to the island, helps the Government build a better infrastructure and enables home owners to benefit from the many changes that will result.

Buying a home now, in the relatively early days allows home owners to choose superb locations at prices that are extremely competitive. Consider what they will be worth in 10 years time.”

With the port at Cape Verde being a regular “port of call” for cruise ships, increased flights from the UK and the country’s keenness to build relationships with the EU, the future is exceedingly bright for this cluster of islands off the West Coast of Africa
