The tender for the exploitation of the property at Alikes in Anavyssos is currently in its second phase with three contenders in this stage. These are the consortium of Lamda Development, Reds and Lampsa S.A. (the hotel Grande Bretagne), the Steggou Group with Porto Carras Casino and J & P Avax. South African interest company Greek Lifestyle Investments was excluded from the second phase of the tender.
The property at Alikes in Anavissos is some 1,203 hectares and its exploitation with a long-term lease from the Tourism Development Company (ETA) anticipates the creation of a large-scale tourism installation. The tender calls for the development of tourism infrastructure, accommodation and support services, specifically, the creation of luxury hotels, thalassotherapy centers/spas, and golf facilities. The aim is for the upgrade of the existing golf course within the framework of luxury tourism accommodation and activities in line with this, as well as the creation of tourism property once the zoning plan comes into effect.
The tender for the exploitation and long-term lease of Golf Afandou in Rodos is also in its second phase. The consortium of Lamda Development, Reds and Lampsa S.A. (the hotel Grande Bretagne) and Steggou Group with Porto Carras Casino are contenders in the second phase of this tender also, and GEK Construction company with Rodos Palace Resort. The property is 1,315 hectares on the eastern coast of Rodos.
Managing director of Hellas Golf Ltd., (in association with U.K.-based PGA Design Consultancy) John Wade, welcomed ETA’s announcement for the second phase of the tender and said: “The project in Anavyssos is exactly what is needed in Greece right now in order to drive forward the dynamic growth of golf tourism, however, Greece should now grasp this wonderful opportunity and quickly develop several other golf and spa resorts throughout the country in order to lengthen their tourism season.”
