$1m hotel for town

Maciu Malo
Monday, January 21, 2013

PLANS are in the pipeline to construct a new hotel in Ba at a cost of $1million.

Ba Town Council special administrator Arun Prasad said the initiative was designed to attract more tourists to the town.

He said the council had secured a local investor that would soon begin construction in the Varadoli area.

Mr Prasad said Ba needed a second accommodation facility because at present, the Ba Hotel was the only choice for visitors.

"This year will be the best year for Ba in terms of developments," Mr Prasad said.

"One of the biggest developments is the construction of the new hotel. I am pleased to announce that the deal has been sealed and work will begin soon," he said.

"We have acquired a lease in town to build the million dollar hotel to boost our tourism sector.

"Our intention is to attract more tourists to Ba and capitalise on the opportunities provided by the many tourists visiting Navala Village in the highlands of Ba," he added.

Mr Prasad said the council would continue its landscaping project this year.

He said the landscaping conducted last year resulted in the town winning the 2012 Medium City Clean and Green Town awards at the Local Government forum last week.
