Panama City, Panama (March 18, 2011) - Newland International Properties Corp. (Newland) is pleased to announce plans for an exclusive Beach Club to be located on the stunning Isla Viveros in the Pearl Islands Archipelago. This expansive Beach Club will be one of the amenities offered by Newland at it’s soon to open Trump Ocean Club® International Hotel & Tower® Panama. Situated just off the coast of Panama City, the Beach Club is destined to be the social epicenter for residents, guests and jetsetters alike.
Surrounded by pristine waters, sugar-sand beaches, lush landscape and a constant tropical breeze, the Beach Club will be a spectacular retreat for all who visit. The Beach Club will offer memorable experiences suiting every desire, be it endless days filled with activities or simple relaxation and enjoyment of the tranquil surroundings.

Amenities at the Beach Club will include a restaurant offering dining both inside and al fresco as well as an oversized pool overlooking the private beach and ocean beyond.
"After much consideration and planning, we decided that Isla Viveros is the best location in the Pearl Island Archipelago for our Beach Club," explains Roger Khafif, President of Newland. "Not only will our guests and members have access to the many amenities that our private club will offer, but they will also have access to the many other exquisite activities that Isla Viveros has to offer such as the upcoming top-notch, full-service Yacht Club," he added.
Panama is enjoying the strongest growth in Central America, and will lead all of Latin America through 2015, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The Canal expansion plan and ambitious infrastructure investment bolster economic growth while attracting multinational corporations, real-estate developers, retirees, and savvy travelers to this emerging nation, whose diversified economy is driven by transport, banking, communication technology, and tourism. Investors worldwide are no longer just passing through Panama’s infamous Canal, but are choosing Panama as a financial haven.
Panama's economic activity rose 6.24% in July, well above the expected 5%. As it embraces its 11th consecutive month of economic growth, international investors are lining up to buy Panama real estate. "Between the expansion of the Canal and the continuing double-digit increases in tourism, it’s hard to see how Panama won't become Latin America's greatest success story," says Benjamin Loomis, developer of a new Panama real estate project. The Wall Street Journal recently published that Panama's hotel activity grew 9.5% so far this year. The revenue and job opportunities created by growth in tourism and real estate development are projected to be strong economic contributors in the coming years, and they're not the only industries that have attracted multinational firms to invest in Panama: Proctor & Gamble, Dell and DHL all have headquarters or regional hubs in Panama.
Panama has also emerged as the Latin American country with the best business climate, according to the Latin Business Index, surging past Chile for the top spot this year. The Panama Guide reported that, according to the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, direct foreign investment grew 26% in the first part of this year, and companies have invested approximately 1.1 billion dollars to open new business in Panama in just the first six months of 2010. The Latin Business Chronicle deemed Panama the "Latin American Star."
Panama now has 20 years of unbroken electoral democracy and the Panama Canal, entirely in Panamanian hands since 2000, has been hugely successful. All of this bodes well for a country that has been on the rise for years, and all signs point to Panama continuing to thrive.
Viveros Resort & Club is excited to announce a New Golf Membership Program. Since beginning work with Jack Nicklaus and Nicklaus Design in December 2008, plans have been developed to create an unparalleled island golf experience and premier club. The par-72 signature course is under construction and will serve as the centerpiece of Viveros Resort and Clubs' numerous 5-star amenities.
This is the first and only Jack Nicklaus Signature course in the Pearl Islands. Nicklaus Design has built nearly 360 spectacular courses in more than 34 countries. Globally, no other design firm has produced more world-ranked or championship golf courses. Much of their expertise and success comes from their Founder and chairman, Jack Nicklaus. With more than 40 years of experience behind him, Nicklaus had built a golf course design career that parallels a playing legacy that includes 118 professional tournament victories worldwide, a record 18 professional major-championship titles, and the global recognition as "Golfer of the Century" or "Golfer of the Millennium".
Nicklaus has designed close to 280 golf courses in every corner of the globe. He is considered the industry's preeminent designer and why Golf Inc. magazine named him the "Most Powerful Person in Golf" for six years in a row.
"When you have a piece of property as nice as Viveros Resort", Nicklaus said, "and one that provides such potential as a backdrop for spectacular golf, it will be a shame not to visit and spend time." We are excited to announce the initial opportunity to become a member of this incredible club.
The membership program launches this summer. To kick off the new program, we have created 100 memberships all designated for Gold members. These members will receive fantastic incentives and privileges including a 20% discount on the initiation fee of $70,000. This will be a private golf course with access exclusive to members only. Given such fabulous pricing and incentives on these first memberships we expect demand to be strong so please contact us today at 1-855-VIVEROS if you would like to receive more information.
