SILENT-RESORTS and EcoIsland Development announce Club Ki’ama Bahamas, the world’s first equity club to offer ultra-sustainable solar residences and carbon-neutral solar yachts as co-ownership model. Club Ki’ama is located within the new Ki’ama Bahamas enclave on Elizabeth Island, minutes from Great Exuma. Construction begins in June 2022 and, upon completion, the yacht and residence club will have the lowest environmental impact of any development in the Caribbean.

The Ki’ama Bahamas community, Club residences, and facilities were designed by SILENT-RESORTS CEO and founder Victor Barrett. The single-story Club residences will be built using linear designs that complement the natural topography of the island. They feature 10- to 12-foot ceilings for enhanced ventilation and light, “living roof” landscape systems, solar panels, and structural timber frames designed to withstand a Category 4 hurricane.

The pre-engineered building system makes it possible for the bulk of construction to take place off-island, minimizing disruption to the natural landscape. Much of the resort will be constructed on piers to avoid land excavation or fill using “carbon negative” pre-engineered building structures with near-zero construction waste. All residences, yachts, buildings and amenities will be fully and independently solar powered. The resort also utilizes highly efficient, advanced water purification and wastewater treatment systems.
