Melia Dunas Beach, Cape Verde

Capital Growth, Income, Lifestyle
As an investment the Melia Dunas Beach Resort stacks up very well. Located on the island of Sal, the luxurious resort is one of three exquisite resorts that will be run by the world renowned Melia International, offering top quality 5 star accommodation and opened on 1st November 2014. Property investors who invested off plan, have already seen great capital growth on their investment and will now be receiving rental income too. The Melia Dunas Beach Resort is a fully managed development, ideally suited for those investors who were interested purely in financial gain. However, for cash investors, there is the added advantage of personal usage of between 1 to 5 weeks (subject to investment levels).

As the resort is largely sold out, there are limited resales available so please enquire to check availability. As you would usually expect with The Resort Group, the development has been rubber stamped by Savills International, the builder is Grupo San Jose and Melia International are the hotelier operating the resort.

Facilities for Dunas Beach Resort include:

– A large variety of pools spanning over 300 square meters in total with ample areas for relaxing and chilling out.
– Modern and stylish bars, including 4 pool side bars and the Meliá Gabi night Club.
– Meliá Yhi Spa.
– Palm tree lined boulevard to the beach, with a fine selection of bars, restaurants and shops.
– Comprehensive leisure facilities, including state of the art gymnasium and tennis courts.
– Excellent range of hospitality services including wedding pavilion and convention centre

As with the other resorts, the hotel benefits from the white sandy beaches and year round average temperatures of 29c that Cape Verde has to offer. With tourism as a all time high, and set to continue at a rate of 22% annually, the Melia Dunas Beach Resort is set to become a central attraction within the archipelago.

Estimated 9%-12% net yield p.a., estimated capital growth 6% p.a

Update: The Resort group has just won the award for Leading Hotel in Cape Verde. For more info click here.

Resort almost sold out, with capital growth already seen in excess of 40% already.

The resort is now complete and the launch was November 2014, The Melia Dunas Beach Resort promises to be a lively family resort through travel industry partnerships with brands such as Thomsons.

It has been confirmed that Thompson have pre-booked 60% of the resort at 100% occupancy with Melia International giving investors the comfort that the new Resort can meet the demand required to provide the returns investors have been hoping for.

Look at the plans and you’ll see over 1200 villas, apartments, studios and suites, that’s practically a small town. From this perspective the Melia Dunas is shaping up to be a bustling resort suitable for those who don’t like isolation, and for those who do, there is ample space in the resort for relaxation and tranquillity.

Being conservative (as we usually are), our expectations of Dunas is to grow comfortably at around 6% p.a. and deliver between 6%-12% net yields. So the total annual growth combined is a modest and yet high figure of 12%-18% (See ‘Double your investment in 6 years‘).



I am a restaurant manager, aged 50, and, on the recommendation of a long time friend, I recently went to Chris Mansfield of Davenport Property Investment for advice on how to invest some of my hard earned cash.

I already had some ideas regarding what I wanted to do, including investing in a buy-to-let flat in the UK, or starting a pension plan. Chris took his time to evaluate my options, explaining in detail the different possibilities available to me. He also introduced me to some new ideas, which I had not considered, one of which was investing in overseas property.

I found Chris to be very friendly and his advice accessible. He took all the time needed to answer my many questions, and exhibited an obvious and broad knowledge of financial issues.

During the time it took me to make my decision, I dealt with Chris on several occasions, some in person, others on the phone, during the whole process his expertise was readily available to me at all times. And, just as importantly, he always made me feel welcome with his “easy going” style.

I have now invested in property overseas, and feel very safe with my choice, particularly since I know that Chris himself has invested in the same development.

I would heartily recommend Mr Chris Mansfield to anyone who wants to make the most of his, or her, money.
