ICYMI, Gran Alacant will soon be home to a 4 star hotel. The AJ Hotel recently broke ground on an 11,000+ square meter site next to the Foster’s Hollywood in Lower Gran Alacant.
The 6000+ m2 hotel will feature 108 rooms including 8 suites and 8 disabled friendly rooms, a swimming pool, and restaurants. In addition, the hotel will have 1500 m2 of retail space on the ground floor and underground parking for 160 cars.
The 10 million euro project is by the company Nou Mediterrani, a company owned by the owners of the Gran Alacant Centro Comercial. The hotel will be managed by SH Hotels who also run the SH Valencia Palace and SH Ingles in Valencia and the SH Villa Gadea in Altea. The architect on the project is the Elche based studio Javier Boix Arquitectura and the interiors will done by the well-known Valencian interior designer, Julio Güixeres.
We’re very excited to see how this hotel project turns out! Not all tourists like to rent villas or holiday apartments. Some travellers prefer the services offered by a hotel so a greater variety of accommodation is a probably good thing for Gran Alacant.
You can read more about the project in the local newspaper, Diario Informacion.
