First Sod Turned to Commence Construction for Levera Beach Resort, Grenada

November 4th marks a big day for Levera Beach Resort. The groundbreaking ceremony-taking place on the building site beach front-will celebrate the start of construction for Phase I–Seaside Cottages of the resort development.

Construction on fourteen of the forty Seaside Cottages began fall 2016.  These eco-friendly cottages come with incredible ocean views and will serve, along with the Beach Club, as the cornerstone for all resort activities and hotel operations.

“We are excited to get the project vertical and create a significant labor force here in the northern St. Patrick’s Parish.  Levera will become an anchor for tourism in the northern part of the island.” - says Randall Oveson, the General Manager of the project. 

Levera Beach Resort is a unique development dedicated to building symbiotically with the environment.  Levera’s development plans include an Eco-Center, sustainable agriculture, energy efficient lighting, solar panels, and water reclamation.

The 80-unit luxury hotel, Turtle Beach Hotel, is scheduled to start construction Q2 of 2017.  Once commissioned, it will house multiple pool areas, a full service spa, farm-to-table restaurants, a Beach Club with rum bar, conference rooms, and an Eco-Center.  Hotel guests will be able to take advantage of all the services and amenities offered at this exclusive resort, while enjoying a distinctive setting; the resort is nestled adjacent to Levera National Park and boarders the Caribbean Sea.  This coveted travel destination is steps away from white sand beaches and less than an hours drive from the airport in St. George’s.

Alexandra Otway-Noel, the Minister of Tourism- Hon.
