DEVELOPMENT INVESTMENT BOARD Cook Islands

April 27, 2001

The Cook Islands is flourishing as a tourist destination.  The industry is buoyant and the forecasts are very promising.

Demand for accommodation however is not being satisfied and there is an urgent need for more investment particularly at the high end of the market.

Escapa Developments Limited is a wholly locally owned company.  It is currently bringing to completion the construction phase of a 32 room four star hotel complex on Rarotonga’s premier site on Muri Beach.  This site has room for further development.  There is also a matching (2 ¼ acres) vacant property contiguous to it, which is on the market.

The demand for more accommodation combined with the outstanding location, land availability and quality of the current development are compelling reasons for canvassing the market, at this time, to determine whether there is investor interest in structuring an enterprise to embark upon a much larger facility.

Enquiries and inspection (by appointment) are welcome.
