Leisure Sector

After selling Hamptons International, Robin switched focus to the leisure sector.

2010 - 2021: Petit St. Vincent.
Robin and business partner Phil Stephensen purchased the 115-acre private island in 2010. They embarked on a 12-month renovation project redeveloping the island into a 5* resort, receiving widespread acclaim in the travel press.

Robin based himself ‘on-island’ and led the project; for ten years on he remained actively involved as a Shareholder/Director.

Robin has since sold his shares in Petit St. Vincent in December 2021.


2012 - 2014: Grenada
Robin was appointed as business partner Peter de Savary’s (International property entrepreneur) Advisor for sales and marketing for Peter’s Caribbean developments on the island of Grenada. Developments included Port Louis Marina, Mount Cinnamon, Grenada Beach Club and Tufton Hall.

2006: Four Seasons Resort & Private Residences, Barbados
Robin and business partner Michael Pemberton acquired the iconic 80-acre site to develop a world class beachfront resort with private residences. Due to the global economic downturn, banks withdrew credit facilities and construction has been put on hold.

2005: 88 St. James’s Street, SW1
Founded Capital88 as a vehicle to acquire this landmark building with a consortium of investors. Sold to Carlisle Group in 2012 for £36.5 million.

2003: Park Place (Henley-on-Thames)
Purchased Park Place as General Partner for a consortium of investors. Sold in 2007 for £42m, the highest ever achieved price for an undeveloped country estate at the time.
