Peace, Love and Happiness/Barbuda Ocean Club
700 luxury villas starting at US$6m each, intended to be along the whole of the south coast of Barbuda, on Coco Point and Palmetto Hotel’s old leases, with a philanthropic desire to ‘help Barbudans’ through their interpretation of a community programme, several manual jobs attached and an apparently great relationship with PM Gaston Browne who gets the income. Not a hotel or really fitting into any category here, they have declined a subscription to this website. However note that from their investors brochure they may have inadvertently acknowledged it by calling one of their buildings ‘barbudaful’.
PLH have started to open for new villa owners at the Barbuda Ocean Club and completely cleared land for further building and a proposed golf course at Palmetto, where they have met opposition from local people as their contentious approach brings more unwanted conflict to the people of Barbuda.
