Colombian singer Shakira has joined forces with Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters to purchase a Caribbean island in an attempt to “reinvent the concept of tourism”. It is believed they have paid $16 million for Bonds Cay, which is north of the Bahamas, as they plan to build there.
It is believed that Shakira and Roger are hoping to develop a millionaire holiday resort, which will offer luxury holiday homes with private beaches, as well as top class hotels. They are even planning to sell some prime seaside property which will be built on the island.
Shakira and Roger are also planning to set up an artist’s retreat, which will hold galleries for up and coming artists, as well as offering semester-long sabbaticals programmes. The two musicians are joined by Miami based investor Arturo Rubinstein, who is excited by the project.
Arturo explained, "It's not about having 200 speedboats and an 18-hole golf course. I would say it is an explosion of the senses. It's a concept more related to art and culture." Shakira is currently dating Barcelona defender Gerard Pique and Bonds Cay would be the perfect post season get away for the couple.
