Castlewood Group brings Nikki Beach to six markets in Asia


Castlewood Group brings the world renowned Nikki Beach brand to six markets in Asia

Nikki Beach Hotel and Spa, Phuket to Open in 2013

 Castlewood Group brings Nikki Beach to six markets in Asia

May 2, 2012, Singapore – Commercial Real Estate Developer, The Castlewood Group Singapore, announced today they are expanding the world-renowned lifestyle brand, Nikki Beach, in Asia, commencing with a Hotel, Spa and Beach Club in Phuket in 2013.   Nikki Beach which has already seen massive success with its Koh Samui Beach club which opened 2009, plans to operate and expand its brand with Castlewood Group in Singapore, Koh Samui (hotel property), Bali, Langkawi and Hai Nan – potential investors will have the opportunity to own a slice of one of the hottest and exclusive properties which attracts celebrities and trendsetters alike.

In 1998, Nikki Beach introduced the world to the ultimate beach club concept bringing together dining, fashion, art, music and entertainment and was quoted by the London Observer as the ‘Sexiest Place on Earth.’  Over a decade later, the Nikki Beach concept has transcended its international venues and grown into a global luxury lifestyle brand – Nikki Beach Lifestyle which comprises of a clothing line, global events such as the famed Cannes and Toronto Film Festivals and the upcoming London Olympic Games, plus a Nikki Beach music label, VIP membership and concierge program as well as a hotel and resort division.

The Nikki Beach way of life can now be experienced in twelve cities, in nine different countries: Miami Beach, Florida, USA; St. Tropez, France; St. Barth, French West Indies; Marbella, Spain; Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; Marrakech, Morocco; Koh Samui, Thailand; Mallorca, Spain and also at the Cannes Film Festival, France; the Toronto International Film Festival, Canada; and this year at the 2012 Olympics in London.

Founder Jack Penrod is so respected in the industry that the State of Florida, Miami Dade County and the City of Miami Beach honored him with the phenomenal success of Nikki Beach and his contribution to the transformation of the infamous South Beach Miami over the past 25 years by declaring Tuesday, April 17, 2012 ‘Jack Penrod Day.’

Castlewood Group CEO Chris Comer said, “We are delighted to contribute to the expansion of this hugely exciting and successful brand in Asia and offer our investors the chance to become part of the Nikki Beach lifestyle.   The Nikki Beach Club plus The Nikki Beach Hotel and Spa in Bang Tao, Phuket will be our first offering to the market and will comprise a 5 star hotel with 151 luxurious suites and a mix of 23 sky villas and exclusive villas all with private pools and gardens.  In addition there is a 45 m free form swimming pool, roof top infinity pool with bar and lounge overlooking an external yoga area.  Combined with the glamour of the Nikki Beach Club this will be the place to be seen in Phuket.”

Castlewood Group has seen a strong interest across Asia to purchase commercial real estate.   Investors can buy into the Nikki Beach Hotel and Spa, Phuket starting from S$60,280 and can select fixed returns with a 5% guaranteed returns for 8 years or variable returns which have the potential to achieve up to 30% per annum.  The investment offers an early exit in 2016 and a full term managed exit in 2020. The investment has no stamp duty and is HDB friendly.

The investor is fully insured for the full amount of each individual purchase. This insures the title of the land and the subsequent value of the property and the business built upon it by First American Title Insurance, itself a fortune 500 company and one of the world’s largest underwriters.  Also added to the insurance and in an effort to provide the safest buying environment possible, Castlewood Group has placed the development and its assets in a fully secured third party trust based in Singapore and managed by Intercontinental Trust – an independent member of Baker Tilly, the 8th largest provider of accountancy and business services in the world. This trust deed will remain in place until the hotel exit which is planned for December 2020.

“We’ve gone the extra mile to make this an attractive and safe investment.  This financial assurance combined with the exciting lifestyle experience with Nikki Beach has prompted a great deal of interest and we look forward to achieving our goals to launch Nikki Beach properties in Singapore, Koh Samui, Bali, Langkawi and Hai Nan”, Chris Comer added.

Plans for the Nikki Beach hotel and Spa, Phuket have been warmly received.  At the recent Asia Pacific Hotels Awards sponsored by RICS ( Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors,) and HSBC  held on April 27, 2012 – Nikki Beach Hotel and Spa Phuket won an award for New Hotel Design and Construction Thailand 2012 & 2013.

“We are thrilled to be collaborating with the Castlewood Group as they have a rich pedigree in selling, managing and marketing outstanding properties worldwide. Our first property in Asia was the Koh Samui Beach club which is proving to be a great success.  We can’t wait to expand  the excitement of Nikki Beach in Asia as we know we have many fans and followers of the brand and our choice of partner is absolutely critical to making this an outstanding experience for everyone,” said Founder and President of Nikki Beach, Jack Penrod.

Miami, Florida is a sprawling cosmopolitan city known for its deep cultural heritage, over the top personality and wide array of entertainment.

The Hispanic and Caribbean influence soon becomes evident upon arrival. From Spanish conquistadors to immigrants from neighboring Latin-American nations; Spanish-speakers have played a huge role in the evolution of Miami.

Cubans have had a presence in the city for awhile thanks to Cuba being in such close proximity to Miami. After Fidel Castro’s rise to power in 1959, the influence of Cubans further increased as waves of them left their homeland to flock to Florida’s shores.

Cubans brought with them unique styles of music and dance, such as rumba and conga, as well as their language and delicious food.

Jack Penrod’s Proclamation Ceremony at Nikki Beach



Jack Penrod’s Proclamation Ceremony at Nikki Beach

April 17, 2012 Named Official “Jack Penrod Day”

By the City of Miami Beach and Miami Dade County Officials

Miami Beach, Florida (April 17th, 2012) – On Tuesday, April 17, an exclusive group of Miami Beach residents, politicians and state officials gathered at the world-renowned Nikki Beach Club to celebrate its founder Jack Penrod.

Jack Penrod at Nikki Beach Jack Penrod’s Proclamation Ceremony at Nikki Beach

After 25 years in business on Miami Beach, the State of Florida, Miami Dade County and the City of Miami Beach proudly honored Mr. Penrod with a Proclamation to celebrate the phenomenal success of Nikki Beach and his contribution to the successful transformation of the surrounding area. As a tribute to Mr. Penrod’s undeniably important role in changing the face of South Beach forever, the City of Miami Beach and Miami Dade County, officially named Tuesday, April 17, 2012, “Jack Penrod Day.”

Amongst the guests on Tuesday evening were Ms. Ana Rivas Logan (The Honorable Representative for the State of Florida), Mr. Luis Garcia (Florida House Representative), Mrs. Lynda Bell (The Honorable Commissioner for Miami Dade County), Mr. Russell Benford (The Honorable Deputy Mayor of Miami Dade County) and Mr. Michael Gongora (The Honorable Commissioner for the City of Miami Beach) whom were eager to celebrate both Nikki Beach and the man behind it, Jack Penrod.

While his business is legendary, few know the man behind the Nikki Beach vision. Jack Penrod, an avid diver, pilot and all-around outdoorsmen built his empire from the ground up. His illustrious career in business now spans the globe, with locations in 8 countries and a lifestyle brand that reaches even further.  But the Nikki Beach founder had a modest start. A hard-worker and aspiring entrepreneur, he joined the McDonalds Restaurant Corporation in 1969 as a line cook making $.85 an hour.  Due to his innate marketing skills, he put his savvy into over-drive and moved up the ranks at warp speed. Mr. Penrod eventually became the largest franchise owner in the State of Florida.

After his success with McDonalds, Jack Penrod turned his attention toward the entertainment, nightlife and hospitality industry, opening several clubs in Daytona Beach, Ft. Lauderdale and Miami. His success with Penrod’s Beach Club in Ft. Lauderdale was astronomical and it seemed everyone wanted to get in on the action. The City of Miami Beach, in particular, was interested in having Mr. Penrod open a business in South Beach on the once sleepy Ocean Drive.

Penrod Family1 Jack Penrod’s Proclamation Ceremony at Nikki Beach

Previously a dilapidated part of Miami Beach, more popular with retirees than trendsetters, the South of Fifth area of South Beach is now one of the most sought-after and exclusive neighborhoods on the beach. Jack Penrod has played a major role in the neighborhood’s transformation since the mid-80’s with the opening of Penrod’s Beach Club in 1988. For two years in a row, first in 1984 and again in 1985, a delegation from the City of Miami Beach and the Greater Miami

Convention and Visitors Bureau approached Jack Penrod about bringing his successful Ft. Lauderdale business, Penrod’s, to South Beach. Mr. Penrod turned Ron Kent, the director of the GMCVB, down in 1984 after studying Ocean Drive and finding it was crime-ridden and unsafe for his staff.

Then, in 1985, City of Miami Beach Commissioner Bruce Singer approached Mr. Penrod again on behalf of the city and asked him to reconsider; Mr. Singer asked Mr. Penrod to create a “wish list”, promising that the City would do whatever it could to bring his successful business to its streets. After careful consideration, Mr. Penrod compiled his terms and the city gratefully welcomed Penrod’s.

Ever the savvy businessman, Mr. Penrod spent the first few years creating a buzz all over the country about Penrod’s Beach Club coming to Miami Beach before actually opening the $4 million entertainment complex at One Ocean Drive. After 3 full years of legendary parties all over the country, cutting edge marketing campaigns and the success of the beach concession from 1st Street to 14thStreet, Penrod’s Beach Club opened its doors and changed the face of the neighborhood forever.

Nine years later, tragedy struck and Mr. Penrod’s daughter, Nicole, was killed in an auto accident. Devastated as he was, Jack Penrod decided that, rather than mourn his daughter’s passing, he would celebrate her life for years to come. In 1997, after a complete renovation, Nikki Beach Club was opened. The venue and its sister properties all over the world are a continuing homage to Nikki Penrod and the Nikki Beach brand is meant to exemplify all that she was as a person; beautiful, fun-loving, a trendsetter and cutting edge in every way.

The Nikki Beach brand has become the premier luxury entertainment lifestyle brand in South Florida and the world. Not only has the venue made its mark on South Beach, but the brand has shined a spotlight on Miami Beach all over the globe, with locations in St. Tropez and Cannes in France; St. Barth in the Caribbean; Marbella and Mallorca in Spain; Cabo San Lucas in Mexico; Koh Samui in Thailand, at the Toronto Film Festival in Canada, Marrakesh in Northern Africa and Miami Beach in the USA.

Attendees were honored to be a part of the State, County & City’s expression of gratitude and congratulations to Mr. Penrod on Tuesday and thrilled to be a part of honoring a large piece of Miami Beach History.

WMC The Miami Winter Music Conference 2012 | EDM Live


What To Expect From The Miami Winter Music Conference 2012

 WMC The Miami Winter Music Conference 2012 | EDM Live

written by: D E Bradley

EDM Music News – Winter Music Conference

The Miami Winter Music Conference is not simply just another music festival. Winter Music Conference includes a host of top events, which are both entertaining and informative, that draws in crowds and industry professionals from across the globe. Its status and calibre commands so much respect that it has become one the most anticipated and well-attended events in electronic and dance music – and Winter Music Conference is indeed on the American musical calender.

Now into its 27th year, the Winter Music Conference has developed into the largest of its kind – making it essentially the SXSW of the dance world – and it generates the same level of excitement as other key American music events such as Coachella. It is estimated that in 2011, over 100,000 people attended the event, which brought over 1400 artists to 403 events and 89 venues. These staggering statistics show how far the event has come and, seeing as though there is no sign of enthusiasm for the event waning, it could expand further. It is now the highlight of the genre’s annual events, partly because of its party atmosphere and partly because it plays such a vital role.

The Winter Music Conference is so important because it is not just about dance parties and showing off current talent. A major aspect of the Winter Music Conference is the seminars and workshops available to help struggling artists and teach people about the industry. Showcasing up and coming artists is something the event prides itself upon, in the past it helped launch the careers of Lady Gaga and Rihanna and it continually gives budding musicians the chance to earn a critique of their demo at workshops. WMC’s role as a tool for the global industry rather than an ordinary event is no better highlighted than with the fact that last year more delegates from the media, record labels and producers attended than artists, and of these, only 62% were American.

This years Winter Music Conference – from March 16th to the 25th – looks set to rival previous years with another great range of seminars, discussions, events and competitions that will have fans entertained and informed all week of EDM Music. Winter Music Conference begins with the Opening Pool Party at the Surfcomber Hotel, which boasts a long list of artists performing and continues across the city in a week packed full of great events. The full itinerary of Winter Music Conference is far too extensive to list here, but highlights selected by the organisers include Q&A sessions with artists such as Grammy nominated BT, the International Record Collectors Show and “The Record” – a contemporary exhibition at the Miami Art Museum.

The majority of events of Winter Music Conference can be attended by all badge holders, however one of the most important annual events is unfortunately for delegates only – the International Dance Music Awards. This star-studded ceremony on March 22nd is a chance for Miami to celebrate the best in the industry, and in 2012 will be hosted by Daniel Glass with special appearance from many artists including DJ Shadow and Deadmau5.

This is just a taste of what to expect from the 2012 Winter Music Conference, but given the success and variety of events on offer in 2011, you can be sure that this 27th event will be just as exciting and satisfying for all concerned.

Pearl Restaurant Miami Beach

Just the Place to Be..

written by: lilitmarkos

If you are looking for a great place to unwind at and with great food to boot – then a visit to Pearl Restaurant Miami Beach should be on the very top of your list. I recently had the chance to go to the place for a pre-tasting and I was bowled over, not just over its sophisticated layout design but also over the wonderful cuisine and gastronomic delights that its menu boosts of.

Upon entering Pearl Restaurant, you can feast your eyes on the magnificent visual display of color and style – Pearl Restaurant Miami Beach’s choice of white décor with orange highlights accentuated by the amber lighting gives the place a feeling of chic and comfort at the same time. The place is warm and welcoming, reflected by the courteous and efficient staff who will serve you as soon as you set foot inside the restaurant.

Pearl Restaurant Miami Beach presents its diners with a variety of dining location choices to choose from – Pearl Restaurant houses a spacious indoor dining area and a sunken champagne bar for a traditional dining experience. At the same time however, one can opt for an open space dining experience along its terrace dining area that affords one a wonderful front view of the ocean.

When one opens the menu, an array of an extensive offering that includes Asian, European and Western cuisine, to name a few, will immediately tantalize with their mouth watering description and beg for a chance to be tasted in that one sitting. And of course, what is a fine meal without the best choice of drinks and cocktails to go with it. At Pearl Restaurant, a wide selection of cocktail drinks are available that are sure to leave the patrons with a fun feeling and possibly a desire for more. And to top it all off, Pearl Restaurant offers a selected list of caviar to customers to ensure full gastronomic satisfaction upon costumer consumption.

At night Pearl Restaurant Miami Beach is transformed into a pulsing, breathing thing that pulls people to it with its amazing décor, chic coziness and wonderful dining experience. With a bit of music and tons of enjoyment to offer, the restaurant and lounge is fast becoming one of the “in” places to see in the neighborhood.

And so the moment of truth arrives. After a short time of waiting for my menu choices, the food finally arrives. For this ‘visit, I have decided on: For dinner food tasting it started off with an appetizer of Italian eggplant and goat cheese mousse, together with marinated beet, micro Mache salad and raspberry Air. While for the main course, I have decided on the chef’s choice of flame grilled “Akaushi”, 8 oz Succulent Tenderloin beef. The food definitely tasted really good – the cheese smelled so good and melted in the mouth and the tenderloin beef was just oozing deliciousness.

Pearl Restaurant Miami Beach is a gem of a place to have out here at Nikki beach.

The place is beautiful and the people are also wonderful – Pearl Restaurant must be commended for its staff. The people are accommodating and know a lot about the concept and menu choices, they can easily guide and assist you to come up with the best gastronomic choices. The staff is also very attentive and their overall uniform theme jibes with the retro concept of the restaurant.

Lately, there are only a small number of places that have made me smile but my wonderful experience with and at the Pearl Restaurant Miami Beach have convinced me that there are more wonderful restaurants and lounges out there that are just waiting to be discovered. Try it and see for yourself – Pearl Restaurant is just the place to be at right now.

Fountainebleau Miami

Fontainebleau Miami
Fontainebleau Miami 300x224 Fountainebleau Miami

Fontainebleau Miami

Fontainebleau Miami

Fontainebleau Miami opened its door for the first time in 1954.

In Fountainebleau Miami a ball marked the grand opening for 1600 guests, who included the mayor of Fontainebleau in France. Designed by Morris Lapidus, an architect of Russian descent, and built on land purchased from Harvey Firestone, the founder of the Firestone Tire Company, the eleven story, spectacularly curved building, at first drew both criticism and outrage for Fountainebleau Miami.


The Fountainebleau Miami included a 17,000 square foot marble floored lobby decorated with bow ties and a two story Stairway to Nowhere.   The latter historically led to a cloakroom, which was reached by elevator. Guests having checked their hats and coats would then make a grand entrance down the staircase.  There were both Russian and Turkish Baths and the famous La Ronde Supper Club where the stage could be raised by hydraulics at Fountainebleau Miami.  250 cabanas surrounded the immense swimming pool overlooking the ocean, tennis courts and putting greens were available for use and six acres of formal gardens imitated those to be found at Versailles and the Chateau of Fontainebleau Miami.

During the 50ís and 60ís, hotels in Miami and in particular the Fontainebleau Miami became the place to stay with the area being christened the American Riviera. Big named stars such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Judy Garland, Elvis Presley and The Beatles either stayed or performed at the hotel.  Scenes from the James Bond movie Gold Finger were shot here as was the Jerry Lewis film The Bellboy were all ar Fountainebleau Miami.

Unfortunately during the 70ís, the Fountainebleau Miami lost its popularity and became neglected and in bad need of repair. Organized crime, in the form of drug dealing, took over the area and a group known as the Black Tuna Gang ran their illicit drug operation from a suite in the Fontainebleau Miami. In 1977, hotelier Ben Novak, who had owned the Fountainebleau Miami from its concept, filed for bankruptcy.

In 1976 an organization called The Miami Design Preservation League was formed and due to the efforts it made to preserve the historic buildings of South Beach, The Miami Beach Architectural District was designated in 1979, thus becoming America’s first 2oth century Historic District that included Fountainebleau Miami.

In the 80ís and 90ís with TV shows such as Miami Vice, designers such as Versace and  stars such as Madonna, Jennifer Lopez and Gloria Estefan  being regular visitors to Fountainebleau Miami, Miami regained its popularity., Hilton Hotels  ran the Fontainebleau Miami and there was a new  construction boom to provide the necessary hotel rooms to meet the increase in visitors.

In 2005, Turnberry Associates purchased the Fountainebleau Miami and in 2006 began work on a one billion dollar refurbishment of Fountainebleau Miami. In November 2008 the redeveloped hotel opened and on 22 December 2008 the Fontainebleau Miami was added to the U.S. National register of Historic Places. The new designers had kept the original concepts envisioned by Lapidus including the bow -tie floor and staircase and had built two towers to increase the room capacity to 1504 in Fountainebleau Miami, of which nearly half are suites. There are now an immense beachfront spa, a free form pool, three upmarket signature chef’s restaurants and two nightclubs in addition to the usual hotel facilities.

Fontainebleau Miami continues to get rave reviews. As one recent guest stated; “The resort has changed over the years from better to best”
