Ishigaki to get second Grandvrio resort hotel
Route Inn Group, which does hotel business across the country, will construct a new resort hotel ‘Grandvrio Resort Ishigaki Villa’ in Arakawa, Ishigaki. The new hotel is scheduled to open in January 2017.
The Route Inn Group already owns a hotel, Ishigaki Resort Grandvrio Hotel, on the island, and the planned site of the new hotel is on the area adjacent to the existing hotel.
According to company officials, the new hotel will be higher class than the existing Grandvrio Hotel. The aim is to attract overseas tourists for extended stays in the hotel.
The hotel facility will have two types of buildings. There will be four cottages, each with a private pool, and five three-story buildings. The capacity of the new hotel will be about 300 guests.
The total project cost is estimated to be about ¥3 billion. The company projects annual sales of ¥1.5 billion for the new hotel.
