Another Bahamas project has been announced and this one has a sustainable angle. Star Island is a 35-acre island in a protected sound ten minutes by boat from harbor island. The resort will be home to private homes and resort residences with facilities that will include a spa, restaurants, bars, pools, tennis courts and a “no-fuel” marina.

The developers have pledged that each part of the development and operation will be sustainable. This includes everything from alternative energy such as solar, wind and microhydro to shade-grown organic coffee in the restaurants and bamboo sheets on the beds. The plan is to have Star Island be entirely off the grid and 100% energy self-sufficient.

Buildings will be designed to meet LEED-certification requirements and will use technology such as cold-formed steel, insulated concrete forms, LED lighting and geothermal temperature-control devices. The island’s water needs will be met by a rain-harvesting system and underground tanks with drinking water purified through reverse osmosis systems. This unique development is planned to be open in late 2009.

    Alex Papas is getting ready to bring you the first Green Island in Bahamas called Star Island. Alex and his partners are developing a paradise within a paradise, for the rich and famous. This luxurious 5-diamond private island community is nestled at the northern end of the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. Just a 55 min flight away from Palm Beach, Ft Lauderdale or Miami and only a 10 min boat ride to the island. Harbour Island is also only a 10 min boat ride away, yet light years away in its unique culture and ambiance of unhurried ease.

    This 35-acre private island paradise will consist of beachfront and dockage estate lots. There will be a condominium-hotel and waterfront bungalows. The island will have every amenity possible including world renown restaurants, café open 24 hours, boutiques, club house, Grocery store open 24 hours, tennis courts, basketball courts, state of the art fitness center & high end spa, marina, helicopter pad, and a park. Private boats and limo take you to and from the island and the airport. Hundreds of palm trees will cover the island and its beautiful sandy beaches. The island has elevations up to 24 ft and the best bone fishing in the world. Since most hurricane damage is caused by water, the fact that the island is located in the inner sound of North Eleuthera greatly limits the surge produced by the open ocean.

    The island of Eleuthera is considered to be one of the prettiest islands in the Bahamas, with its rolling green hills, sheltered coves, breathtaking bluffs and cliffs, inland lagoons and caves, and magnificent pink sand beaches that stretch for miles. The island is over 110 miles long but little more than a mile wide in most places. The island is a destination for an elite clientele and home to many international celebrities with access to the island from Nassau and south Florida by commercial air carriers and private jets. Recent articles about Eleuthera’s uniqueness have been seen in the Wall Street Journal and New York Times along with Travel & Leisure naming Eleuthera one of the Top 5 up- and-coming destinations to visit in 2006.
