Great New Pictures of Saidia

The pictures below were added to by user timo9. They show the resort looking ready to open as schedules in June 2009.

The coastline on the Mediterranean coast of Morocco has fantastic unspoilt beaches. This picture shows the beach close to Saidia with the Chafarinas Islands just offshore.

Above : The promenade in Saidia runs the entire length of the resort (6km) and it is already possible to imagine the crowds strolling along enjoying the warm evening air.

The Kings Hotel Saidia

Above : The five star Barcelo Hotel is the most luxurious hotel on the Saidia resort. It is a joint venture between the Barcelo chain and the royal family of Morocco. The concept is for it to be one of the most visually arresting and impressive hotels on the Med and so it will act as a beacon for the resort attracting media interest and boosting the status in the same way that the Borj al Arab did for Dubai.

More good news for Saidia property buyers

Posted in Morocco property,New Launch,Property News,Saidia property by Michael Kent Friday October 17, 2008

Jardin de Fleur, the leading developer in Saidia, has today announced the signing of an agreement with Golden Tulip to operate the resort previously know as RT-7 Les Jardins du Maroc. These extremely spacious two, three and four bedroom penthouses and apartments in Saidia are intelligently arranged around the perimater of the resort with the focus in the centre being on the impressive facilities for owners; including a heated swimming pool, restaurant and bar, amphitheatre, tennis court, solarium and children’s area.

The Golden Tulip Residences

Hans Kennedie, CEO of Golden Tulip added, “The Tulip Residences will offer fully serviced, tastefully furnished properties that combine luxury and elegence with all the comforts you could wish for. Saidia is a fantastic location with immense potential.”

Who are Golden Tulip?
Based in Lausanne Switzerland, the Golden Tulip Hospitality Group operates more than 780 hotels worldwide in more than 50 countries. They operate across the range of hotel categories but in Saidia they are operating under their Tulip Residences four star brand with superior first-class service. The Residences are designed to be a home from home and more personal and spacious than traditional hotel rooms.

What are the advantages of buying with Le Jardin de Fleur?
As a buyer on one of the Jardin de Fleur resorts you benefit from probably some of the best leaseback deals available in the world today. They have contracted established and reputable hotel operators such as Radisson and Best Western to provide rental clients for their apartments – giving you the benefit of a massive marketing budget and client database. So as you can see this is one resort that won’t just take your money and leave you to get rental clients yourself, indeed the proactive approach taken by the developer is just one reason that Moroccan Sands recommends Le Jardin de Fleur above others in Saidia.

Moroccan Sands launches the Emaar Tinja project

Posted in New Launch,Property News by Colin Timms Friday May 16, 2008

Moroccan Sands announces the launch of the Tinja development by Dubai based Emaar. The partnership between Emaar and Moroccan Sands opens a new chapter in the continuing success story of Moroccan property investment. This ambitious project involves the construction of over 2500 luxury dwellings set in an idyllic coastal location.

Emaar Tinja: Building a Better Morocco

Tinja has been master-planned by Emaar to be a self-sustaining community with upscale retail outlets, hotels, an equestrian centre, a clinic and future international school. When complete, Tinja will be a mix of luxury villas, townhouses and apartments. The development occupies an area with a three kilometre long beach edged by natural woodland. The project’s quiet setting is just a short drive from the lively port city of Tangier and a short car ride from Tangier International Airport and adjoining free trade zone. When complete Emaar are expecting the Tinja resort to be highly sought after by foreign executives and the business class of Tangier.

Emaar are one of the most pre-eminent real estate construction companies in the world; they are included in the 2007 Financial Times’ Global 500 rankings which act as an annual snapshot of the world’s largest companies. Emaar’s current projects in Morocco are worth around US$6.87 billion.

Sales and marketing manager at Moroccan Sands, Michael Kent, comments: “When a company with the global presence of Emaar decide that Morocco is the perfect venue for one of their most ambitious projects to date, people sit up and take notice. Many buyers exclusively opt for Emaar developments for their overseas property investment strategy; the healthy return on investment from Emaar projects, preclude them from considering other developers”.

He added: “Emaar have recognised, along with shrewd overseas property investors, that Morocco possesses a unique combination of factors that put the country at the forefront of potential investment destinations. With a favourable tax regime (including exemption from income tax on rental income for five years), large scale government backing for infrastructure creation and an ambitious programme of resort building, known as the Plan Azur, Moroccan property certainly has the attributes for profitable investment”.

Colin Timms, from Moroccan Sands international marketing department says: “Tangier’s large free trade zone is attracting many multi-national companies to northern Morocco. As the zone expands, more and more professionals from all over the globe will be looking for western standard housing. Investors can expect to benefit from the ever-increasing demand for well located, quality rental properties in the area. He continued: “When complete, Tinja will be just the kind of neighbourhood that will attract big-salaried business people. I’m sure these superbly located Moroccan properties will generate high year-round rental yields, and the ongoing demand for exclusive homes in the area will have a positive effect on resale values”.

Moroccan Sands Launches Athenea Golf Property in Saidia

Posted in New Launch by Michael Kent Tuesday September 4, 2007

Marbella, Spain – Moroccan Sands announces the launch of its exclusive frontline golf “Athenea Golf” development in Mediterrania Saidia. An ideal investment opportunity, buy-to-let, or second home.

Everybody dreams of the perfect apartment overlooking the impeccable greens and manicured fairways but frequently these prime positions are either already sold out or too expensive. This is mainly due to successful buy-to-let investors who have realised that golf apartments with views receive more bookings and so this has had the effect of pushing up prices and reducing supply.

So, when a new frontline golf development on a 5 star luxury resort with prices from only 79,000 euros (exclusive of taxes) becomes available the astute property investor can see lucrative returns, from both rental receipts and pure capital appreciation.

The Athenea Golf project is situated at the eastern end of the Saidia resort and features adult and children’s swimming pools, a clubhouse with a bar and restaurant and a padel court, all set in lush sub-tropical gardens. Michael Kent, the Sales and Marketing Director of Moroccan Sands commented

“The one, two and three bedroom, west-facing apartments will be the perfect place to enjoy the spectacular sunsets across the Mediterranean Sea whilst sipping a cold drink watching the last players finish their round.”

Michael Kent, the Sales and Marketing Director of Moroccan Sands, commented that “the ideal overseas investment needs a numbers of crucial ingredients and Athenea Golf has all these and more; 6km of white sandy beaches, a great climate, a 840 berth marina, plus a host of sports, golf, retail and conference facilities all add up to an ideal rental location. Plus in Morocco there’s no tax on rental incomes for the first five years of lettings.”
