GroundbreakingPosted by PURE in News | November 01, 2011
Fantastic was the word for the week from those investors who attended our recently held groundbreaking events.
Management of the PURE Beach Resort and Spa held a lively cocktail party and welcome reception at the Sugarlands villa in Sandy Lane. Guests of the event enjoyed local culinary delights, while being serenad- ed by the cool jazz sounds of one of Barba- dos’ best live bands Jazz 4, a quartet lead by Italian percussionist Mario Porchetta.
These jazz musicians impressed guests with a combination of jazz and Caribbean music but also beautifully satisfied the re- quests of guests to play different songs ranging from Frank Sinatra to Lionel Richie.
The fun continued the next day as our guests took in all this beautiful island has to offer with some opting to take island tours, lounge at the world famous Hilton Barbados or do some duty free shopping in the island’s city centres.
In the afternoon with the picturesque Foul Bay coastline in the background, investors had their first glimpse at the location of the Pure Beach Resort and Spa. Minister of Home Affairs and representative for the area Adriel Brathwaite in speaking at the ceremony expressed how important the development would be for the parish of St. Philip and welcomed the investment to Barbados’ shores.
Members of the management team and other ministers of government had the honour of turning the first sod to mark the official groundbreaking for the site. As part of our focus on sustainable living and environmental responsibility the team also planted an orchid tree signifying our commitment to the Barbadian people and preserving their environment.
After a truly memorable evening at Foul Bay, we returned to the Sugarlands Villa for a fun-filled night of dinner and karaoke under the Caribbean stars.
