PORTFOLIO: RESORT HOTEL PROPERTIES

 

AQABA
Jordan

 

In response to the Jordanian government’s interest in promoting tourism  in the Aqaba area of the country, a tourist enterprise zone was created with a number of incentives for private development.

 

 The Aqaba International Resort project, to be developed by a private development group, envisioned one of several hotels to be built in three countries around the Gulf of Aqaba that would be inter-connected via small hydrofoil craft.  In addition, the plan incorporated a major water park component and, ultimately, golf.
