Fancy Winning Your Own Tropical Resort With Luxury Pool? 6th May 2016
Sunseekers who dream of leaving their nine-to-five job in favour of somewhere hot and sunny might be tempted to enter a competition to win their very own tropical resort, complete with a private beach, lifetime salary and luxury swimming pool.
The Kosrae Nautilus Resort in Micronesia has launched a lottery, allowing anyone to get their hands on a 16-room hotel, a house and two apartments, five rental cars, two passenger vans and a pick-up truck, a restaurant, a solar panel system, a workforce of 16 people and $10,000 (£6,908) in the business account.
The Australian owners are letting go of their property, not because they do not love it anymore, but because they want to start their role as “professional grandparents” and be near the mainland where their children live.
“We’ve had our time in the sun and enjoyed a career most people would never even dare dream about,” co-owner Doug said, adding: “We feel like a new chapter in our lives is beginning, and we’re ready to pass the baton to someone else.”
All contestants have to do is purchase a ticket for the lottery for $49. On July 26th, the winning ticket will be drawn, and the new owner of the resort, situated in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, will be revealed.
Winners will also be able to enjoy their very own 32ft fresh water swimming pool, where they can take a refreshing dip every day.
Or, they could make the most of their private white-sand beach and crystal-clear waters where they can swim among sea turtles, rays and beautiful coral reefs.
As well as being a diver’s paradise, Kosrae has dense jungles and a steep volcanic landscape to explore.
