Value Add Opportunities
  • We identified an immediate opportunity to increase guest room rates and introduce an EP Plan with an optional FAP plan for guests that prefer an all meals inclusive plan. The increase in revenues is reflected in the 5-year business pro-forma. Management has kept their rates below the comp set to attract their loyal client base directly while limiting their use of OTA’s.
  • We also identified an added value opportunity to upgrade Curtain Bluff to a Trophy Status Resort in Antigua competing directly with Jumby Bay. This would significantly increase the profile and value of the asset and its revenue base. We estimate that physical upgrades to the public area restaurant and kitchen, the beach front restaurant, and guest rooms/ suites would cost approximately $5.0 million or less. Architectural and construction plans and cost can be arranged through an Antigua based contractor.
  • There is an excellent opportunity to develop 7 ocean front villas on the existing site by relocating the Tennis Courts and an additional 3 villas on the southern section of the property. These 10 villas would be about 3,000 SF, can be used to increase the number of suites/villas in the resort or alternatively sell them to high net worth individuals in the United States or in the United Kingdom. In view of the high demand for oceanfront real estate, we expect these units can be sold for a premium exceeding $1.0 thousand per square foot.
  • Curtain Bluff is being offered unencumbered by a management agreement or franchise. An investor possesses the opportunity to bring in a new management company or operate the hotel as an owner operator to revamp the marketing strategy and build asset value through expansion.
