Located on the white sands of the island of Sal, Cape Verde, the new developments offer total bliss and relaxation. Guests can choose to stay in one of two adult-only hotels, Sensimar Cabo Verde by TUI and MELIÃ Llana Beach Hotel. Both offer a stunning range of hotel suites, tropical pools and rejuvenating spa facilities. Visitors can expect impeccable service, stylish eateries and exquisite resort facilities, all set against the backdrop of stunning beaches and tropical gardens.
TRG has invested €70million into the development of the two hotels and a further €3million into Bikini Beach. The two hotels have over 600 suites and can welcome 43,873 tourists per year, creating approximately 500 jobs locally. It is situated between the Group’s two existing, award-winning hotels, MELIÃ Dunas Beach Resort & Spa and MELIÃ Tortuga Resort & Spa.
Bikini Beach is the Group’s new beach club brand and the first luxury beach club to open in Cape Verde. Featuring a restaurant, two distinct bars and a 95m2 pool, the club boasts unrivalled views of the Atlantic Ocean, perfect for all day entertainment. Added to this is the club’s Heaven VIP area, situated on the second floor with its own private Champagne and Sushi Bar. Located at the end of Llana Beach, Bikini Beach is easily accessible from the surrounding resorts, and guests can also arrive by boat via the manmade pontoon.
The Group plans to expand the Bikini Beach brand across Cape Verde and other key locations around the world.
