The Antilles Pearl Villa and the Newly Debuted Petit Topaz Villa are Fully Restored, Renovated, and Available for the Festive Season
SHOAL BAY WEST, ANGUILLA — New York based real estate investment, development and asset & property management business Time Equities Inc. (TEI), announced today that Altamer Resort (Altamer), the luxury collection of beachfront villas situated on the island’s Shoal Bay West Beach, has reopened the Antilles Pearl villa and also unveiled the Petit Topaz Villa, a new private boutique villa rental product.
The Antilles Pearl, a five bedroom 12,000-square-foot villa, is comprised of one master suite with a private terrace, en suite bathroom with jacuzzi tub and shower for two, and four additional bedrooms with en suite baths. This villa also has:
* A formal dining room with seating for 12
* A separate entertainment room with a state-of-the-art home theater system, wet bar, card table and custom-built pool table
* A 50-foot skywalk culminating in a triangular viewing area protruding over the sand
* A private study
* A rooftop terrace with a stunning 360-degree view of the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and St. Martin.
* Two private tennis courts, fitness facility and basketball and volleyball courts.
The Petit Topaz, the newest offering at Altamer, is a duplex villa for two to four guests with a bedroom downstairs and an additional sleeping loft upstairs. Approximately 675 square feet per floor, the Petit Topaz also offers guests an enclosed, private courtyard (approximately 265 square feet of private, enclosed outdoor space) and private outdoor hot tub. Guests staying at the Petit Topaz also have private access to the beach via a private walkway. It is a private enclave at the resort and is perfect for newlyweds or for a couples retreat.
Visionary leader and founder and chairman of TEI, Francis Greenburger, has been a long-time visitor to Anguilla for nearly 20 years and after falling in love with both the island and its people, acquired Altamer in 2014.
“We are thrilled to announce that Antilles Pearl and the newly repositioned Petit Topaz are reopened after the damage of last year’s hurricanes. The future of Anguilla is bright and after a disaster like Hurricane Irma, we are grateful for our remarkable team and staff who worked graciously and diligently to restore the villas,” stated Greenburger. “I consider Altamer a home away from home and am proud to announce that our villas have been completely transformed and far surpass the comfort, design, and aesthetic of the pre-Irma product. There is a new feeling of modernity and warmth throughout the freshly restored villas.
Designed by famed architect Myron Goldfinger, Altamer is recognized for its unusual geometric modernist architectural design, unique and palatial scale + layout, and of course, oceanfront views. Managed by Anguilla native and longtime butler, Preston Brooks, the resort includes a fitness center, two tennis courts as well as 42 acres of undeveloped land.
“As we approach our peak festive season, we could not be more excited to debut our freshly restored villas with new and returning guests. The island of Anguilla has made a triumphant recovery in the wake of Irma, and the visitor experience is as positive as it’s ever been,” said Natalie Diaz, Chief of Staff at Time Equities. “Altamer holds a unique spot in our portfolio, being our only hospitality property, and we have taken special care to ensure that the guest experience at Altamer continues to be one of the utmost in luxury, comfort, and exclusivity.”
TEI worked tirelessly with local sub-contractors and consultants after last year’s Hurricanes Maria and Irma to restore and improve the villas at Altamer for reopening, but more importantly, for long-term sustainability and weather resistance. Accordingly, preventative measures were taken and Cat 5 Hurricane resistant exterior windows and doors were installed, surge wall protection was added, and the property’s main electrical transformers and distribution panels were elevated.
Moreover, TEI founded the Anguilla United Relief Fund (AURF) and raised just over a total of $263,000. In the days after the storm, TEI delivered over 7,400 pounds of emergency relief supplies to the island and partnered with the Department of Disaster Management, the Health Authority of Anguilla, and the Department of Education to support relief efforts. Most recently they secured a donation of 98 tablets and 10 laptops for the school children in Anguilla from partners at Organizer and the Clinton Foundation. Other island development updates can be found on Irma.IvisitAnguilla.com, the central portal launched by The Anguilla Tourism Board to share updates on the island’s recovery post-Irma.
Altamer Resort is located on Shoal Bay West, consistently named one of the best beaches in the world and home to many of Anguilla’s most luxurious villas and upscale restaurants. The pristine two-mile beach, frequented by celebrities such as Denzel Washington, Robert Downey, Jr. and Charlize Theron, is also a popular destination for water sports, including snorkeling, kayaking, diving and sailing and offers panoramic vistas of nearby St. Maarten.
