Turkish investors to build tourism complex on Kish Island

TEHRAN, Jul. 13 (MNA) – A large residential-recreational complex will be built for tourists on Kish Island, southern Iran, with the Turkish investment of $100 million.

As per an agreement signed by the managing director of Kish Free Zone Organization (KFZO) and managers of “a Turkish company” active in the tourism industry this week, the construction operation of the complex will start soon in a 10-hectares area.

The complex will include 1,000 bedrooms equipped with advanced residential facilities for guests, grand reception halls, meeting rooms, a number of restaurants, sports grounds, a waterpark, swimming pools and amusement parks.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, CEO of the free zone, Gholamhossein Mozaffari, said this huge tourist complex will attract many domestic and foreign visitors to the coral island.

Mozaffari, earlier in March, said that the Persian Gulf island is prepared to host major events both in regional and international scales, saying “With the proper environment, coastlines, transport and recreational infrastructures, tourist attractions and suitable sports amenities, Kish Island enjoys high capacity for hosting regional and international events.”

The KFZO is in charge of handling the infrastructure affairs, development and economic growth, creating job opportunities, attracting local and foreign investors, regulating the good and labor market and ultimately utilizing the Island’s tourist potentials.

Over the past couple of decades, Kish has become a beach resort where visitors can swim, shop and sample a laid-back and relatively liberated local lifestyle. It is home to free-trade-zone status, with ever-growing hotels, shopping centers, apartment blocks and retail complexes.
