Shakira and Pink Floyd's Roger Waters have bought a Caribbean island together, where they will build a resort to cater for millionaire holidaymakers.
Shakira and Pink Floyd's Roger Waters have bought a Caribbean island together, where they will build a resort to cater for millionaire holidaymakers.
The Colombian singer - who is currently dating Barcelona soccer star Gerard Pique - has joined forces with the musician to purchase the $16 million site of Bonds Cay, north of the Bahamas, in the hope of "reinventing the concept of tourism".
Shakira and Roger plan to construct both a set of luxury holiday homes - which will also include private beaches - and a number of exclusive hotels with plans to sell prime seaside property on the island.
Additionally, the pair plan to build an artists' retreat which will house a series of artists-in-residence, galleries populated with up-and-comers' works and a programme offering semester-long sabbaticals.
John Christie, vice president of Caribbean real estate brokerage H.G. Christie told Bahamas4u.com: "It's a beautiful island. It's got some height to it, which means as you build up, you get better views.
"There is the ocean to the east of it so you've got reefs and views of turquoise water. On the other side of the island is limey, light turquoise water because it is shallow. It's a great fishing area."
Arturo Rubinstein, a Miami-based investor involved in the project, added: "It's not about having 200 speedboats and an 18-hole golf course. I would say it is an explosion of the senses. It's a concept more related to art and culture."
