High-tech marries luxury at Grenada's Prickly Bay Waterside project

High-tech is coming to Grenada in the form of a development project called Prickly Bay Waterside that includes luxury homes and apartments; a boutique hotel; a marina; and a series of swimming pools, including an Olympic-sized 150-foot lap pool.

Prickly Bay Waterside is located in the Old Boatyard at Prickly Bay on the Lance-aux-Epines peninsula in southern Grenada.

Using lessons learned from hurricane Ivan in 2004, the entire development is designed to exceed Miamis Dade County hurricane building standards with hurricane-resistant steel frames, triple glazed windows, its own generators and a desalination plant.

The futuristic design features materials used in the aeronautical and automotive industries, such as carbon fiber and Kevlar, plus lots of glass, steel, metals and ceramics along with contemporary gadgetry such as a Miele kitchen, Wi-Fi access and the newest telecommunications equipment.

Project director Richard Lee said the development captures a nautical element because of its location in a boatyard famous among yachtsmen who have sailed the Caribbean.

The hotel will feature several restaurants and bars, concierge services, meetings rooms, a gym and spa treatment rooms.

No timetable has been announced for the opening of the projects first phase nor is a Web site yet available.
