Rumors Confirmed: Viceroy Cape Verde Is Coming

The beachy-cool Cape Verde region will see a Viceroy in 2017

A short while ago we mentioned a rumor that the Viceroy Hotel Group would be opening a resort in the Sambala region of Cape Verde, an island group off Africa's west coast.

At the time, when we asked VHG CEO Bill Walshe to confirm the tip, he was a bit coy, and wouldn't give a solid yes or no.

Well, that changed yesterday when we received official news that the Viceroy Cape Verde will open in 2017 on Santiago Island, in an area minutes from capital city, Praia. The plan is for a 150-room beachfront resort spread out over 12 square-kilometers, with three restaurants, a children’s club and a state-of-the-art water sports center.

The sports center is quite important as the island offers awesome scuba diving, big-game fishing, paragliding, and other water-focused activities. The interior mountain area is a birdwatchers paradise, thanks to the verdant forestry.

While 2017 seems to be lifetime away, it's uncanny how quickly construction can progress, so we're looking forward to seeing first renderings in the not-to-distant future.
