ASMALLWORLD supports Murbee Resorts in developing a new Rosewood resort in Antigua & Barbuda 

Zurich, 22.12.2023 – ASMALLWORLD client Murbee Resorts has signed a deal with Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® to bring the first Rosewood hotel and residences to the island of Barbuda. ASMALLWORLD Hospitality, ASMALLWORLD’s hospitality consulting team, has been advising Murbee Resorts on this project for over a year and has played a vital role in brokering this deal with Rosewood Hotels & Resorts. Going forward, ASMALLWORLD will coordinate the development of the resort and oversee the sale of all residential units.

ASMALLWORLD Hospitality, a wholly-owned subsidiary of ASMALLWORLD AG, supports hotel owners, institutional and private investors, as well as developers in structuring and developing large-scale hospitality projects all around the world. One of its key competencies is to find the right brand for each development in order to increase its value.

Since its formation in 2019, ASMALLWORLD Hospitality has already supported many high-profile projects like The Ritz-Carlton Residences in Dubai, the Kempinski The Creek, the Moxy Dubai and MedHills in Croatia. This latest project marks the company’s first development in the Caribbean. 

ASMALLWORLD played vital role in brokering the agreement with Rosewood

ASMALLWORLD has been advising Murbee Resorts for over a year in a consulting capacity and has assisted its client in identifying strategic partners for the development. It also played a vital role in sourcing and securing the agreement with Rosewood Hotels & Resorts.

Going forward, ASMALLWORLD will assume the role of coordinator for the project and will also oversee the sale of all residential units. Under the terms of the extended agreement, ASMALLWORLD's compensation will consist of an ongoing consulting fee for the duration of the project, as well as a performance-based fee from the sale of the residential units.

“We are extremely excited and humbled to be part of this new Rosewood luxury resort, in a region that remains very dynamic as travellers are increasingly seeking remote destinations for their vacations and holiday homes,” commented ASMALLWORLD CEO Jan Luescher.

Contributing to Barbuda’s exclusive position: Rosewood Barbuda

Set on 85 secluded acres, including 900 metres of pristine beachfront, Rosewood Barbuda, scheduled to open in 2028, will bring an intimate expression of Rosewood's ultra-luxury hospitality experience to the island. 

Rosewood Barbuda will be built according to the highest luxury standards for its future residents and will feature the brand’s integrative wellness concept, Asaya Spa®. In addition to the spa’s six treatment rooms, wellness seekers can also enjoy an expansive fitness centre and two pools, including one dedicated to families. To offer a diverse culinary program, the property will feature three unique dining outlets including a farm-to-table restaurant that will showcase the flavours of the island through the use of local produce.
