According to Raj, ninety percent of the hotel’s construction work has been completed. Focus has now turned to interior work, as the hotel is expected to open its doors during Q1 or Q2 of 2017.

The hotel includes more than 70 rooms and nine villas enjoying privacy and stunning views. The main feature of the hotel will be its spa.

The project comes within the framework of the state’s interest in the tourism sector, and to meet the wishes of citizens and residents. The resort provides the opportunity for visitors to enjoy the tranquility of scenic gardens within wide open spaces, away from the noise of the city.

The resort is characterized by attractive designs that aim to add a touristic outlet for both citizens and tourists.
