A new eco-designed resort will break ground in August on the island of Bimini in the Bahamas. The new property, illa Bimini Resort & Residences, is designed by Island Developers and Miami-based Oppenheim Architecture + Design, with Raymond Jungles as the landscape architect.

Situated on 40 acres and boasting over 9,000 feet of coastline, illa Bimini Resort & Residences will offer 54 three- and four-bedroom residential villas and a 49-key, five-star hotel that will feature the first overwater bungalows in the Bahamas, as well as suites offering “thoughtfully curated lifestyle amenities” to guests seeking a “new standard of sophistication.”

“We wanted to create an environment that encourages residents and guests to turn off their phones, disconnect from the modern-day chaos and fully immerse themselves with the simplest pleasures of life,” Island Developers Co-founder Alejandro Capo said. “The property is designed to complement the laid-back Caribbean vibes alongside the luxury of unplugging.”

“The ultimate goal for illa was to create an eco-luxury development that builds with the land, not on the land,” said Chad Oppenheim, lead designer of Oppenheim Architecture + Design. “From the landscape, individual villas, materials to services, we designed a holistic retreat with environmental sustainability and community development at the forefront.”
