Donald Trump Launches Sales of Trump Island Villas in the Grenadines


After Conquering Real Estate Market on Island of Manhattan, Donald J. Trump Moves on to Canouan Island in First Caribbean Venture

NEW YORK, Feb. 16 /PRNewswire/ — America just isn’t big enough for Donald Trump — that’s why he has moved on to launch his first real estate venture in the Caribbean. The location? Tony Canouan Island in the Grenadines, located in the southeastern Caribbean near posh Mustique and the Tobago Cays. Sales have begun for Trump Island Villas, beginning at $2 million.

Trump Island Villas will be a community of 135 villas and estate homes, which will be nestled in the hillsides across 700 acres on a 1,200-acre private estate that it shares with the new Raffles Resort Canouan Island. Phase One begins sales this month, and will include 30 Golf and Beach Villas starting at $2 million — the only villas to be built on the stunning Trump International Golf Club that opened in November 2004. The par 72, 18-hole Jim Fazio course offers views of the Caribbean Sea from every hole and has already been called one of the most challenging and unique courses in the Caribbean, with its 360-degree views of the Tobago Cays and the Grenadines. The Robb Report recently named the course one of its “Best of the Best.” Also available as part of Phase One will be 20 three-acre estate lots for those seeking to build a custom-designed home. Estate lot prices start at $2.7 million.

“I have discovered many great properties over the years, but nothing compares to the spectacular location and setting of Canouan Island. This island is such a natural choice for prominent individuals who have the means to buy a second or third home. It was a natural choice for me, too. Canouan’s potential for luxury homes with phenomenal views, a golf course and resort amenities was a vision I could not resist. I have now fulfilled that vision and look forward to its success.”

Buyers can choose from three villa styles offering views overlooking the golf course and the Caribbean Sea:

* Balliceaux Villa — A 3,983 square foot, three-bedroom, three-and-a
half-bath villa, with a spacious great room opening to a two-tiered
veranda and infinity pool. The master suite includes a private veranda,
walk-in closet and six-piece master bathroom. The Balliceaux villa
with land starts at $3.75 million.

* Mopion Villa — A 4,251 square foot villa on two levels, with three
bedrooms and three-and-a-half-baths. The great room opens to a veranda
that leads to a lower level infinity pool. The master suite includes a
media room, private patio, walk-in closets and six-piece master
bathroom. The two secondary bedrooms include en-suite bathrooms, walk-
in closets and private patios. The Mopion Villa with land starts at
$3.75 million.

* Savan Villa — A duplex villa, with each half offering 2,583 square feet
and two bedrooms and two-and-a-half-baths. The great room contains an
open-style kitchen and opens to a veranda with a lower level pool. Each
bedroom contains an en-suite five-piece bathroom and private veranda.
The duplex villa with land starts at $2 million.

In addition to the Golf Villas, there will also be a gated community of Monte Carlo Villas surrounding the European-style Trump Club Privee casino on the northeast side of the island; Marina Villas, which include individual boat slips in a private 30-slip marina on the quiet northwest side of the island; and an additional 47 three-acre estate lots for custom home building.

Villa owners will enjoy full membership privileges at the Trump International Golf Club, which includes dining privileges at four gourmet restaurants, access to Raffles Amrita Spa, beaches, tennis and water sports, as well as other services and amenities offered by Raffles Resort Canouan Island. Owners will also have the option to place their homes in a resort rental program.

Unspoiled and virtually undiscovered, Canouan Island is located in the heart of the Grenadines, less than eight miles south of Mustique and 110 miles southwest of Barbados. The three square-mile island is rimmed with small bays and coves, secluded white beaches and one of the world’s largest coral reefs, offering incredible diving and snorkeling. The Moorings, the world’s premier charter yacht organization, also offers a base on Canouan with yacht charters available to explore the Grenadines’ prime sailing grounds and breathtaking beauty.

Canouan Resorts Development (CRD) is the island’s developer and owner of the 1,200-acre estate. CRD has retained a team of high-profile partners known for operating luxury brands, including Raffles Hotels & Resorts, Donald J. Trump and The Moorings.

American Airlines offers daily service to Canouan from San Juan (www.aa.com). Several airlines also offer flights from major North American cities to Barbados — including Air Canada, Air Jamaica, American, BWIA, Continental, Delta and US Airways — and Raffles arranges air limousine transfers from Barbados to Canouan. Raffles also offers its own private executive jet with club seating for seven passengers to transport clients from any of the Caribbean islands.

Trump Island Villas are exclusively marketed by Altman Real Estate. For more information, please call 784-482-2000 or visit www.trumpvillas.com. The Trump Island Villas Sales Center is located on the piazza, across from the reception area, of Raffles Resort.
