8.50am 14th September 2007 - Course Development

Oce®nico Group, one of the leading developers of quality beach, leisure and golf resorts in Portugal, will officially launch its newest resort to the UK market from 4th October. The Royal à“bidos Spa & Golf Resort is set near the medieval village of à“bidos.

The new €280m project will see Oce®nico, along with its joint venture partner MSF, complete a range of luxury properties and golf facilities, including five-star apartments, villas and a condominium hotel and spa. Oce®nico is also constructing a premier 18-hole championship golf course designed by European golf legend Seve Ballesteros, with property investors enjoying membership of the course.

The development, which is Oce®nico’s first on the Silver Coast, has already been recognised as a ‘Project of National Interest’ for its excellent environmental standards by the Portuguese Government. Oce®nico has pledged to construct Royal à“bidos using eco-friendly techniques and materials to complement the natural landscapes of the 336-acre site.

Commenting on the launch Simon Burgess, director of Oce®nico Group, said, “The Silver Coast is a stunning part of Portugal and is rightfully attracting growing interest from investors. à“bidos offers a very special atmosphere, combining historical charm, Portuguese traditions and friendly people and with the Royal à“bidos Spa & Golf resort we are committed to complementing the existing style with the highest standards throughout our development.

“By working with Seve we are creating a world-class golf course, and together with five-star property, spa and condo-hotel facilities, we are focused on creating a prestigious resort with a taste of traditional Portugal. The project has already been recognised by the Portuguese Government for the environmental approach we have adopted, and, as with all of our properties, investors will enjoy unparalleled quality and service.”

Royal à“bidos will include a mixture of two and three-bedroom apartments, as well as two, three and four bedroom villas, all built to the highest standard and in a contemporary style. Also based at Royal à“bidos will be a condominium hotel & spa, with one-bedroom studio suites and two-bedroom lock off apartments available for purchase.

Facilities at the new resort will include private and communal swimming pools, tennis courts, cycle paths, restaurants, bars, shops and a conference centre.

Located just 45 minutes drive north of Portugal’s capital Lisbon, Royal à“bidos is situated 650-metres from the sea near the watersports haven of Lagoa de à“bidos. Also easily accessible is cosmopolitan Cascais, as well as the UNESCO World Heritage site in Sintra, providing investors with access to a mix of traditional Portugal and city vibrancy.

A full launch of the new Royal à“bidos Spa & Golf Resort will take place in Dublin at the IFSC, George’s Dock and in Belfast at the Holiday Inn from 4th – 6th October, and at Windlesham Golf Club, Bagshot, Surrey on 9th October.

Pricing ranges from €365,000 for a two bedroom lock off apartment to €945,000 for an exclusive four-bedroom villa. For more information call 0871 990 3388 or visit
