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.
Mozaffari said this huge tourist complex will attract many domestic and foreign visitors to the coral island.
