Shaner Italia is growing with a property portfolio centralized in the Tuscany region of Italy. Currently, we manage one property—the Renaissance® Tuscany Il Ciocco Resort & Spa—with plans to acquire up to five more in the next few years.
Continuing the expansion of our international brand, we developed Shaner Bahamas and acquired the French Leave Resort on the small Bahamian island of Eleuthera. This beautiful resort—which was recently awarded a Marriott Autograph Collection license—is surrounded by colorful coral reefs, turquoise waters, pink sand beaches and swaying coconut palm trees. It is truly a one-of-a-kind paradise in a quiet, almost untouched location that is referred to as the “best secret island on earth” by Travel + Leisure.
In 2013, we took another step in developing the paradise of Eleuthera by building the French Leave Resort. Completed in 2014, the resort consists of one- and two-bedroom authentic Bahamian hotel cottages and bungalows with resort amenities—all overlooking historic Governor’s Harbour and Cupid’s Cay.
