The Panamanian government recently passed laws allowing Caribbean property
to be titled and offers enticing incentives to foreign investors. Emerald
Monkey Eco-Luxe Resort & Residences offers investors the opportunity to
take full advantage of these incentives.
BOCAS DEL TORO, Panama, Sept. 9 /CNW/ -- A Panamanian resort that offers
an eco-luxe sustainable lifestyle is attracting an affluent retirement market
with a striking mix of luxurious amenities teamed with enticing government
incentives for foreign investors. Emerald Monkey Eco-Luxe Resort & Residences
is located in the lush tropical Archipelagos of Bocas del Toro and is
privately owned and fully titled.
According to the CEO of Emerald Monkey Eco-Luxe Resort & Residences,
Kimberly DeLape, "Interest in the development is soaring in light of new laws
that protect investments in the Caribbean. The natural beauty of the tropics
that surrounds our development, combined with easy access to the U.S., and so
many financial incentives, makes Emerald Monkey one of the most sought-after
destinations for retirement or second home choices."
Currently under construction, The Emerald Monkey development is designed
and marketed as an elegant and private lifestyle that is located in a
"hurricane-free" zone of the Caribbean. Handcrafted island villas in the
timeless Balinese tradition enhance an eco-luxe sustainable lifestyle and
amenities for owners boast five-star standards. Villas start at the mid $500's
to over $2.5 Million. Fractional sales are available. Infrastructure is
underway and the resort is scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of 2010.
Energized by the expansion of the Panama Canal (a $5 billion project),
the government of Panama requires no special authorizations, permits or prior
registrations for foreign investors. Specific investment incentives include:
-- No property tax for 20 years
-- Panamanian residency available for buyers of homes costing $250,000 or
-- Foreign investors are protected from changes in tax, customs,
and labor rules for a period of 10 years
Additionally, Emerald Monkey Eco-Luxe Resort & Residences will be
investigating the opportunity to provide our investors/owners with title
insurance. Title insurance protects the investor and guarantees the investment
on the land and the improvements upon the land should any claim be made on the
land/property by a third party at any stage of the development.
Also, another exciting opportunity is the Pensionado Program outlined
-- 10-50% discounts on many necessity and entertainment costs, including
50% off home closing costs
-- Applicants must be over the age of 18 years old
-- Have a residence in Panama
-- Guaranteed pension income of $1,000/month (plus an additional amount
Purchasing a whole or fractional ownership in Emerald Monkey Eco-Luxe
Resort & Residences enables U.S. residents easy and quick access to their
property. Panama has direct flights from New York, Miami, Fort Lauderdale,
Newark, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Orlando, Houston, Dallas, Atlanta,
Madrid, Amsterdam and major cities in the Caribbean. Panama offers a
sophisticated business district, high-speed Internet connections, an
American-style infrastructure and the U.S. dollar as the legal tender.
Word of Panama's newfound popularity is spreading throughout the media,
according to DeLape. Conde Nast Traveler selected Panama as one of the six
best places for a second home in the Americas and Panama also received the
highest rating for tourist safety by prestigious Pinkerton Global
Intelligence. Panama has also been featured as one of the world's newest "hot
spots" for investment options. While other publications such as Fortune and
International Living magazines have also ranked Panama among the top five
places for retirement, it is the colorful history and profound beauty that is
attracting prospects to Emerald Monkey.
