Specifically located along the specially designed shoreline we will re-create world famous locations such as Cannes, St Tropez, Venice, Marbella, Portofino, Miami and Las Vegas.
Each Zone will be individually designed to replicate not only the inherent architectural characteristics but also the mood and flavor enjoyed by each of these diverse destinations. These independent villages will be interlinked be a series of lakes and canals which will tastefully interweave throughout the resort providing not only scenic transport but an excellent backdrop for the many of the varied themed residential areas to be created. Amenities will include internationally recognised brand hotels including the traditional 5 star hotels and new luxury Spa hotels with emphasis placed on Boutique and Beach hotels.

The development will be known as ‘The International Riviera’ and will comprise

The Registry Collection is backed by Group RCI’s tourismrelated real estate operations and one example of the benefits to the BW Group will be the provision and support of services to purchasers of the company’s highend fractional ownership water villas.
Jonathan Back, MD Group RCI EMEAI said: “We are delighted to be working with the BW Group and to be able to give our support, through one of our most innovative brands, to what will be one of the most unique and exciting
developments in the world when it is completed. We look forward to working
with Bobby and his team throughout.”
A staged build, the first phase will complete in 2011 and will comprise 250 two and three bed, highquality apartments built around the Old Port area of Monastir which will be sold as fullydeeded whole ownership properties.
Fifty luxury water villas will also form part of first phase development, to be sold as highend fractional ownership properties on the basis of a 1/8 th six week share of the freehold at a premium price for the developer and attracting the value conscious high net worth buyer. The water villas will be full associates of The Registry Collection.
The multibillion dollar project has attracted a lot of interest from capital
investors, despite the current economic downturn, which is a testament to the unique nature of the project and its location. Mr. Wahi said: “We have seen remarkable interest from a number of international banks, investment funds and other developers, despite investor confidence being at an all time low. These companies are now placing greater focus on emerging markets such as Tunisia, which is ideally situated for such a largescale
The BW Group design team started to plan the project more than two years ago.Mr. Wahi added: “I wanted to create the perfect paradise within easy reach ofthe European, Russian and Middle Eastern markets.

The development will feature a range of integrated villages styled on international hotspots such as Cannes, St Tropez, Marbella, Portofino, Miami and Monaco. The resort will have a diverse range of upscale amenities such as marinas, golf, retail, international brand hotels and luxury spa resorts. A focal point will be the Vegasstyle casinos resort complex offering a gaming centre for international clientele at the heart of Europe.”
On his affiliation with Group RCI, Mr. Wahi said: “RCI is a respected and
recognised global brand offering great opportunities for my purchasers through
its holiday networks. The Registry Collection has quickly become synonymous
with highend luxury projects and given the scale of this development that is a
great connection for us and we have tapped into its expertise and taken advice on our business model. In sales, I will be looking to the British winter sunmarket, the Europeans and the Russians. We have engaged Private Islands
Marketing, which specialises in niche markets.”
The BW Group is set to replicate the concept model in China, where it has
already signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the government to develop a 26kilometre square island in the South China Sea. It is planned to twin thisdevelopment with the International Riviera.
