Altamer Resort Under Construction
Anguilla will soon have a new luxury resort in the West End. Mike and Rebecca Eggleton are creating a beachfront hideaway on 5 acres at the east end of Shoal Bay West (i.e., next door to Blue Waters). The resort includes a fitness center, pool, and tennis court.
The tall structure has incredible views on each level, especially the top level (see picture). Altamer even has an elevator to provide access for the disabled. They are planning for "one of the premium ultra luxury resorts in the world". The name of the resort is Altamer (which is derived from the word "high" in Italian and "sea" in French). They have full page ads in the newspaper this month seaking staff to operate the resort.
Construction manager is Audley Carty, pictured right. Completion of the first phase, which offers 5 bedrooms for groups of up to 10, is scheduled for July 15, 2000. Construction on Altamer Resort will continue in the slow season, first creating a restaurant on the point, then 2 more villas with their own pools, and finally a conference center.
