Rubbing Shoulders With Posh And Becks In Brazil
February 27, 2009Article by Ray Withers
Brazil’s reputation as a sporting mecca is about to go up a notch as a list of modern legends rush to open centres of excellence near the city of Natal. David Beckham is opening the doors of his first football centre of excellence – David Beckham World of Sport’ coinciding with the 2014 World Cup, of which Natal is tipped as one of the hosting soccer grounds. Formula One’s Ruben Barrichello is parking a motor racing school close to Beckham’s academy. Tennis ace Andre Agassi is linked with a tennis school, while golf and polo facilities are also under discussion. Tourist authorities and the government are pumping money in to the Natal region – with building at new golf courses, hotels and resorts underway plus construction of Latin America’s largest airport. All this development is within miles of Natal, which is the same flying distance from London as Miami, but with a much cheaper cost of living. Add to that guaranteed sunshine every day and hundreds of miles of pristine palm fringed beaches, and it’s easy to see why Brazil is becoming a must-visit destination. Natal real estate offers some exciting opportunities for Brazil property investors.
Natal Ocean Club is set in a prime beachfront location north of Natal city and only 10 minutes drive from Maracajau – the site of some of the world’s best diving and the site of all the new sporting academies.
Designed by world-renowned architect, David Bastos. The luxurious condos and villas offer bright, spacious and relaxed living space set in 20 acres of tropical landscaped gardens with dramatic views over the ocean and sands dunes. The resort offers the ultimate in stylish Natal property with various sporting and spa facilities and sumptuous dining in a unique and private community. With a selection of one-bed apartments from £138,000 to four bed luxury villas from £788,000, these chic villas and condos come with exquisite décor with cliff-top views. Gross yields at the five-star luxury resort are expected to reach 15%.
All of the luxurious properties at Natal Ocean Club are delivered with the highest standard designer fittings and furnishings, providing the most luxurious investment and lifestyle in Northern Brazil. And make no mistake – Natal Ocean Club is a five-star plus resort with the dining, spa and leisure facilities any investor would expect from such a development plus extras like helicopter transfer to the airport. Not to be compared with any of the “typical” cheap product being marketed internationally, the Natal Ocean Club experience will be for only those who are used to the pampered lifestyle. With David Bastos at the design helm, resort comparables are few and far between spread across the length of Brazil, with a price bracket to match. Only for those investing early will the opportunity to be involved come at such a good price.
With five-star operator selection imminent, the Natal Ocean Club will become affiliated with some of the most prestigious resorts in the world.
