Great Inagua Resort Vision Master Plan

Great Inagua Resort Vision Master Plan was a study to evaluate and identify the optimum location to build a new town as a compliment to Matthew Town. Matthew Town, where almost the entire population of the island resides, is sustained by Morton Salt Company as the main employer. The Great Inagua Resort plan creates a new resort town that incorporates numerous waterfront hotels, resort homes, marina, and a town that houses and provides basic services for local residents employed by the new resort destinations.

 

As part of the low environmental impact development strategy, the plan evaluated trade winds, rainy season, important natural habitats, such as the pink flamingo – the national bird, inland water bodies, tidal creeks, and coral reefs to minimize impact to the natural landscape and local ecologies. The plan included compact development strategies, buildings, local food production, landscaping features including a new ecological park, and leveraging other ecological assets to create an eco-resort destination keeping with the Omani tradition of the island.
