Luxe alert! Tightlipped Viceroy Hotel Group may have signed a deal to open a new resort in the Sambala region of Cape Verde, says Hotel Chatter. Cape Verde is an island group off Africa's west coast and is a notable hotspot for European travelers.

CEO Bill Walshe tells Hotel Chatter that they are "thrilled to establish a Viceroy presence in the incredible destination of Cape Verde. That said, we're still developing our relationship with the resort so any details would be premature at this point."

It's not unlike Viceroy to keep details close to the vest, but Hotel Chatter was able to dig up a LinkedIn job opening for a Resort Director of Engineering at Viceroy Hotel Group in Santiago, Cape Verde, with a phase one scheduled to open in July 2013. Nicely done, lads.
