Scottish Developer FM Group has announced plans to expand its luxury resort The Liming on the island of Bequia as it enjoys its first full season of opening.
When completed, the additional investment into the resort by the Edinburgh-based FM Group and Caribbean investors K Group will amount to more than 100-million pounds.
The Liming is currently comprised of eleven Hotel Villas, and a further 24 luxury Hotel Suites are to be constructed at the 30-acre resort, along with leisure and spa facilities. This is expected to create one of the most exclusive and luxurious hotels in the Grenadines.
Construction work will commence in May this year, to build the hotel rooms, bringing the number up to almost 50. In addition, a championship tennis court was completed in October 2019.
A further 30 luxury villas are to be built at the resort within the beachfront estate.
In addition to hundreds of jobs that will be created through this proposed expansion, both via construction and in the hotel, a training initiative was launched by the FM Group, with St Vincent and Grenadines and Scotland sharing the benefits of the investment being made by these companies.
The program aims to upskill local participants from the islands in different sectors such as construction, agriculture and hospitality, by taking them to Scotland to share experiences.
