    Hard Rock International may never get its multibillion-dollar casino project in Spain off the ground. It’s still only a dream 10 years after it initially surfaced, and now faces complaints of being an environmental hazard.


    A decade has passed since the Government of Catalonia in the north of Spain presented the Barcelona World concept. It was to be an entertainment and games mega-complex in the province of Tarragona that would attract new tourism to the area.
    The project stalled for various reasons. Now, Catalonia’s Ministry of Climate Action, Food and Rural Agenda issued a report calling for changes in the urban master plan (UMP) for not meeting environmental requirements.

    Work has begun on a $1.2bn resort in the Costa Rican province of Guanacaste that will bring together a Marriott hotel and an artificial beach lagoon.

    The Nya project will be built on a 900ha site near the town of Liberia on the Pacific coast in northwest Costa Rica. As well as the hospitality offering, there will be a free trade zone using the nearby Daniel Oduber Quirós international airport.
    The site had been earmarked for a theme park to be built by US entertainment company Discovery, a project that was announced in 2017 by former Costa Rican president Luis Guillermo Solís.


    The $100m first stage of the scheme will include four beachfront condominium towers along with a sports and wellbeing centre. This is expected to create around 600 jobs, and aims to complete next year. The work is being carried out by two Costa Rican companies, contractor Edica Constructora and industrial group Pedregal.
    The complete project is expected to be built in stages over the next 20 years.

    Caesars Entertainment will aim to build a new casino in New York’s Times Square, in partnership with SL Green Realty.
    The operator will submit a licence application for a planned downstate casino in New York, which would be the first full casino in New York City. Other operators that have expressed interest include Las Vegas Sands, Wynn Resorts and Universal Entertainment.
    Caesars and SL Green said they intend to redevelop 1515 Broadway, a property just off Times Square, to build Caesars Palace Times Square. Besides a casino, it will also include a Broadway theatre, which will host The Lion King, and restaurants.

    Israel’s plans to turn the lowest place on earth into one of the hottest tourist destinations on the planet will see the country taking inspiration from two places already drawing millions of visitors a year: the Maldives and Dubai.


    Israeli officials see boosting Dead Sea tourism as key to reaching the goal of 10 million visitors a year by 2030. With the sea rapidly shrinking, leaving former beachside resorts miles from shore and turning the former coastline into a dangerous expanse of sinkholes, tourism efforts are focused on the massive evaporation ponds south of the Dead Sea, where most of the large hotels in the area are already located.
    Current plans show 35 guest villas on the water, though the project tender calls for a 198-room hotel on the water, meaning some of the villas may have more than one room.

    The Bahamas will be home to one more cruise destination in the coming years as the local government signed an agreement with a development company to start construction on Long Island, which is another island south of New Providence and Carnival’s private island of Half Moon Cay.

    Calypso Cove, as the new resort will be called, will be developed by Azul Destinations Ltd and Calypso Cove Destinations Ltd at a total cost of some $250 million. The Bahamian Deputy Prime Minister Chester Cooper said the new tourism destination would include a large variety of attractions.


    Besides a 200-room hotel, there will be marina facilities for mega-yachts, a waterpark with interior and exterior pools, casinos, and shopping facilities. The cruise facilities will include a port area and a pier large enough for two Oasis-class ships, such as Harmony of the Seas and Symphony of the Seas.

    It's not quite the Burj Khalifa but... Zanzibar is building the Burj Zanzibar, the worlds tallest timber building.

    The Indian Ocean island of Zanzibar is planning the highest green building in the world, a 28-story apartment tower designed in hybrid timber technology.


    Named Burj Zanzibar – “burj” meaning tower in Arabic – the spectacular high-rise is designed to reach 96 metres in height. Dubbed “vertical green village”, it would represent an iconic landmark not only for the island but for the whole of Africa and a global environmental milestone, being the first timber structure worldwide of such proportions.

    The design of the mixed-use apartment and commercial building, in a playful beehive style with breathtaking ocean views, was unveiled to the public in Muscat, Oman on 1 October. Dutch-born architect Leander Moons, responsible for the concept, said: “Burj Zanzibar is not just an outstanding building but a new ecosystem for the future of living”.
    With turquoise seas, white sandy beaches and a UNESCO-protected historic Stone Town, Zanzibar recorded 15% annual growth in tourism in recent years and 6.8% economic growth. Earlier this year, the semi-autonomous archipelago, 35 kilometres off the coast of Tanzania, stretched its wings also into another direction, launching an initiative to attract African tech companies with a total worth of six billion dollars.

    The Grand Egyptian Museum is set to finally open its doors after a design and construction project which has taken more than 20 years to complete. Touted as the world's most anticipated museum – thanks to both its unique design and the treasures it will house – the attraction was first announced to the world in 2001.

    A design competition in 2002 received more than 1,500 entries, from which Heneghan Peng Architects were selected for the development in 2003. After a delayed start, ground was finally broken in 2005 and the building of the museum has taken nearly 15 years – with the COVID-19 pandemic adding further disruption to the process.

    Opening in November 2022, the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) will house, display, and preserve some of the world’s greatest ancient treasures – including King Tut’s entire treasure collection, which will be available to the public for the very first time.
