The Isle of Man could be set to welcome its first five star hotel and casino complex.
The island’s government is seeking expressions of interest from contractors interested in the scheme, after a second casino licence was granted.
Tim Craine, director at the Department of Economic Development Business Development Agency, said: “This is a rare opportunity to build on and complement our existing visitor and leisure facilities on the Isle of Man. We are looking to work with organisations interested in the construction, ownership and management of hotel and resort complexes.
“With good transport links from the UK, beautiful countryside, as well as nine golf courses and a range of outdoor activites, the Isle of Man offers an ideal location for five star hotel and spa leisure complex – a welcome addition for both visitors and residents.”
Minister for Economic Development, Hon. Allan Bell MHK said: “Not only will the development create jobs in the construction and leisure industry, but it will also significantly add to the Island’s excellent existing services.”
The Department of Economic Development will be liaising with Global Betting and Gaming Consultants (CBGC) and the Island’s Gambling Supervision Commission as it considers tenders.
