A ST NEOTS marketing company has won a major international award for its work in promoting a new golf, marina and spa resort taking shape in the Dominican Republic.

Punta Perla Sales Ltd also picked up three further awards for the Caribbean properties it is marketing in the UK and Eire.

Dubbed the Oscars of the property industry, they were presented at the International Property Awards 2006 ceremony held in London earlier this month.

The special award - the Best International Marina Development - recognises the calibre of the marina currently under construction.

In addition, Punta Perla has won the Five Star Award - the top award in its category - for the Best Caribbean Marina Development and the Four Star Award for The Best Development Caribbean. For one of the homes planned for Star Island at the heart of the marina, the firm has won the Four Star Award for The Best Property Caribbean.

Mark Lynn, managing director of Punta Perla Sales, said: "Confidence in Punta Perla already is at a high level among investors, as proved by the sale of more than 1,200 properties off-plan, and the accolades we received at the awards ceremony provide a further independent endorsement of the exceptionally high calibre of the resort we are creating".
