Located just a short hop by plane or boat from Miami, Bimini has long held an exalted place among tropical getaways. Author Ernest Hemingway spent many a day fishing these Bahamian waters and a long line of sportsmen and pleasure seekers have followed in his wake.
Set to launch in 2012 along the beach of North Bimini, Rockwell Island Beach Estates will offer a collection of villas and a host of luxury amenities, including a state-of-the-art wellness center with meditation garden, spa, swimming pool and sports facilities.
"Rockwell Island Beach Estates and Resort will infuse a new level of luxury and introduce a new segment to the destination,” said Rafael Reyes, Partner of RAV Bahamas, the community’s developer. “Our exclusive location coupled with our planned amenities and the destination’s unmatched mystique will provide a diverse segment of luxury clientele with the personification of paradise.”
According to Reyes, Rockwell Island will “break through traditional barriers of design to create an expansive community reflecting its tropical environment and advanced technology, with five-star services ideal for second-home buyers and those seeking a Caribbean lifestyle where luxury is easily accessible.” Upon completion, the community’s beachfront residences and resort will offer owners and guests the total lifestyle experience with swimming pools, tennis courts, a children's area and fine dining establishments.
The development will continue to positively impact the social, economic and environmental fabric of Bimini through various initiatives including mangrove preservation, the use of bio fuels and other forms of renewable energy as well as community development initiatives.
Rockwell Island also offers a unique amenity for the yachting or boating enthusiast as many of the beachfront lots feature moorings on an adjacent protected bayside lot for vessels up to 120 feet. It’s one of the few resort communities in the Caribbean that offers beachfront homes with a boat-slip combination.
Villas are priced starting at $2,000,000. For more information, visit www.rockwellisland.com
