First Seven-Star Solar Hotel in Iran

Monday, November 5, 2007

Iran is scheduled to build its first seven-star hotel with a supplementary solar energy system on Kish Island over the next two years.

The two-year project with an estimated budget of 520,000,000 dollars is aimed at completing the hotel in Kish in the southern province of Hormozgan by 2009-10.

"Generating electricity from the sun is a very expensive project but I mean to bring this technology to Iran," said Hossein Sabet investor of the solar hotel.

"Now that other countries are imposing sanctions on Iran, building such a hotel is an important step in tourism development," concluded Sabet, manager of Kish Island's Dariush Grand Hotel.
