Studio Piet Boon and OBMI to head up design for Rosewood retreat in Antigua
POSTED 30 Oct 2018 . BY Andrew Manns
Dutch architects Studio Piet Boon and Florida-based firm OBMI have been selected to design the Half Moon Moon Bay, a Rosewood hotel and residential community on the Caribbean island of Antigua.

Set to occupy 132 acres of uninhabited land, the new beachfront getaway will feature 47 suites and several Rosewood-branded villas, as well as 10 purchasable luxury estate lots – all of which will be anchored around a 'retail village'.

Further amenities will include tennis courts, pools, spas, and a biodynamic farm.

Speaking on the project, Piet Boon, founder of the same-named studio called it a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create something enduring".

Bill Green, managing director of Replay Resorts – which is developing the property – said the landscape experience at Half Moon would emulate nature by revolving around the "stewardship of the land".

The new destination – set to debut in 2012 – is one of 17 Rosewood properties currently under development.
