Five-Star Long-Term Hotel Residence at Plantation Bay
Combining the Best of a Resort Lifestyle and Assisted Luxury Living Services

Live HIGH. . .
       For less than the Cost of Living AVERAGE.

Living in a condo or house, you have so many things to arrange for and worry about. Pipes leak, servants leave, plants need pruning, a dozen bills need to be paid.


MacArthur. FDR. Garbo. Hughes. Churchill. Marilyn. Travolta. Keanu. de Niro. Kubrick. Chanel. Jim Morrison. Hemingway. Beckham. Dali. Joplin. Spielberg. All of them at some point lived long-term in a luxury hotel. And lots of ordinary people, too.

In the specific case of Plantation Bay, why should you live here?

Simplicity. One bill. Leave the worries and details to someone else.

The equivalent of dozens of personal servants. Nurse, butler, gardener, maid, chauffeur, concierge doctor, masseur, companion, secretary, errand runner. All are available 7/7 and just a phone call away.

Your own private estate. 8 has. (20 acres). 4 swimming pools. 4 saltwater lagoons. Tennis courts. Climbing walls. Archery. Lending library. Award-winning chefs. Private spa therapists. Scuba and marine sports facilities. Richard Branson pays millions a year for his private Bahamas island. Living at Plantation Bay is almost as good, for a lot less money (but sorry, no helicopter, and our yacht is a banca.)

Four outstanding restaurants and a range of other cuisines – high-end Mediterranean and steaks, Asian and Seafood, International and Filipino, and Comfort Food-American Diner style. Fast-food deliveries from Jollibee, McDonald’s, KFC. When George Clooney goes to his villa in Lake Como, does he enjoy so many food choices?

Plus, all the benefits of Assisted Living, delivered with Five-Star flair, courtesy, and efficiency.

What is Assisted Living?
  • For persons who are in average health, not bed-ridden, but want help with daily tasks, and want to simplify their lives.
  • Private living quarters.
  • Simplicity and Convenience: Extensive regular services on site like meals, housekeeping, laundry, mail and package, repair, transportation, and basic clinic (BP, blood sugar, OTC medicines, etc.). A well-run assisted-living establishment can replace your cook, housecleaner, laundress, driver, gardener, and save the hassle of most kinds of simple errand, while also eliminating the stress of dealing with many different parties. All of these are either included in the basic rental cost, or provided at a fair pre-advised cost.
  • Additional services by arrangement, such as private nurse or group/private therapist.
  • Around-the-clock availability of emergency help in case of accident or illness.
What Is Five-Star Shelter in Place?

You’ve probably read that in recent months the uber-rich sheltered in place at private estates and luxury resorts, avoiding the pain and boredom of being locked down in a city apartment.

Many health experts are predicting there will be a worse second wave, possibly many waves, of the pandemic over several years. There are even doubts about gaining immunity after catching Covid-19.

Did you get stuck in a lockdown? Are you looking forward to a repeat performance? Why not plan ahead and book your pandemic Shelter in Place at Plantation Bay. Some fancy resorts will be charging over US$ 500 a day to well-to-do pandemic refugees. Others will charge US$ 200 a day for inferior rooms with few amenities. Plantation Bay will charge much less than that, while giving you a genuine luxury experience. Keep reading.

Peace and Quiet with Five Star Amenities.
(And Social Distancing without Pain!)
