    Bad News for Incheon's Midan City Resort Developement

    The South Korean integrated resort project in Incheon formerly owned by Caesars Entertainment is on the verge of collapse after failing to meet requirements for another extension to its construction deadline, according to local media reports.

    Korean newspaper Kyeongin reported this week that developer R&F Korea (RFKR) will struggle to gain an additional extension on its development timeline beyond March 2023 after failing to meet the conditions imposed on its previous extension. This, the local news outlet said, not only included a commitment by RFKR to increase its total project investment by 5% but also stipulated that construction – stalled since February 2020 – must resume inside the first half of 2022.


    It also reported that RFKR has a different view on how to complete funding for the project than Korea’s Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, which had previously approved a plan for the entire US$800 million IR to be financed through foreign direct investment. Instead, Kyeongin claims that RFKR now wants to commit only US$500 million with the remaining US$300 million to come from domestic financial institutions.

    An official from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism is quoted as saying, “Once an application for re-extension is received, it will be comprehensively reviewed regarding the conditions stipulated when the first extension were approved … I informed [RFKR] that if a change is made, it may affect the re-extension.”

    Midan City is slated to include a foreigner-only casino, 751 hotel rooms, a theater and a convention space.

    Banyan Tree Ulala will be opening in the second half of the year. It looks pretty nice and will add to the overall resort vision for Saudi Arabia.

    AlUla is billed as a cultural oasis and open-air living museum. The location is home to the Ashar valley, which has been chosen by the Royal Commission of AlUla (RCU), as one of the sites to develop the Kingdom into a world class tourist destination. The resort will be located 15km from the Kingdom’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, Hegra.
    Accor, under the Banyan Tree brand, will operate the Ashar Tented Resort with 47 new high-end suites in addition to 35 renovated suites positioned on a neighbouring site, bringing the total number of units up to 82.


    The 47 tented suites have been designed in relation to the coves created by rock formations, situated to give extended views across the desertscape while providing maximum privacy for guests. The resort blends seamlessly into the natural scenery of the Ashar Valley, while pedestrian trails through a landscape dominated with sand dunes creates an intimate experience, reinforcing the camping mindset of the location.

    LEGOLAND Resort Windsor, UK, have put in a planning application for their indoor adventure golf which is a precursor to expaning to having a full holiday village on site.

    As part of the theme park’s future plans to build a holiday village and the reconfiguration of its car park, planners have lodged an application to build the much-anticipated indoor adventure golf attraction.
    The building has been designed to sit discretely within the park, with good connectivity to both the entrance to the park and the future holiday village. The proposed attraction will have four individually-themed golf courses, including a pirate-themed one.

    The new Adventure Golf Indoor Attraction will be a new secondary ‘support’ ride. It will provide an additional indoor attraction for guests to the park and to the hotel, which is open for additional periods out of season when the main park is closed. The planning statement states: “It will increase the attractiveness of the Park throughout the year and in the future, it will provide an easily accessible indoor attraction for holiday village guests.”
