A 160-bedroom resort will soon rise in Palau with the groundbreaking ceremony of the Palau Royal Garden Resort on Friday, January 18.
The resort, which will be built in Ngerbechedesau, Koror, will cover a total area of 36,671 square meters with the actual building area covering only 17,372 square meters.
Palau Royal Garden Resort General Manager Ren Yongzhi said in his speech during the groundbreaking ceremony that the resort will be constructed with 160 luxurious guest rooms, restaurants, conference rooms, bars, spas, swimming pools, gyms, and tennis courts.
The location of the building, according to Yongzhi, is ideal since it is not far from the airport and is also close to Koror, the center of economic activities in Palau.
Yongzhi revealed that the project will undergo three phases of development and the first phase is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
Yongzhi also expressed that he is confident of Palau’s future tourism industry amid the decline of tourist numbers, especially Chinese tourists. He added that the number of Chinese tourists coming to Palau will greatly depend on how they will promote their business but he also emphasized that they are not focusing a particular market in the promotion of the resort.
“We will promote the resort to the whole world for tourists to come to Palau and enjoy,” Yongzhi said. (Rhealyn C. Pojas)
