Syria approves construction of Latakia hotel

Published May 22nd, 2001 - 02:00 GMT

The Syrian ministry of tourism has accepted an application by the Saudi Bin Laden Group to build the Avamya tourism resort in Latakia, reported Al-Hayat. The execution of the project will require investments of an estimated two billion Syrian pounds ($40.6 million).  


Although the Arab Urban Development Company will finance the project, the Syrian ministry of transportation will in fact be listed as its owner.  


The complex will consist of a hotel and a number of chalets covering an area of some 33,000 square meters. The resort will contain 289 rooms and 460 beds, as well as various leisure facilities. — (MENA Report)
