The projected gay hotel in Canjayar will open, says project director Francisco Alonso. The company behind the projected was forced to return a 300,000 euro grant from tourism authorities as it could not meet the project deadline, but expects another grant to be awarded next year.
Snr Alonso said that he expects the 2016 grant “to be for a similar amount” and that the rest of the financing is now in place.
The projected hotel will be the first hotel aimed at homosexuals in the province. It will have luxury accomodation for up to 20 people, as well as having a restaurant which aims to become a local gastronomic reference.
The hotel will have 10 luxury double rooms, all with jacuzzi and hydromassage, set in 17,000 square metres of landscaped gardens. A swimming pool, outdoor gym and other facilities will all be available to guests.
The village of Canjayar was chosed for the project because its rural setting in the low hills, allowing nature lovers easy access to walks and nature projects. Provinicial tourism authorities are enthusiastic about the project.
