The Government of St Vincent and the Grenadines will construct a 90-room hotel in the vicinity of Kings Hill, Diamond.
Prime Minister Gonsalves on Tuesday said the area was chosen due its proximity to the Argyle International Airport.
“The idea is to have a Holiday Inn express type facility and to add a feature that will attract Vincentians who want to spend a weekend or holiday with their families”.
Gonsalves said other facilities are being constructed within the framework of his government’s quest to build a modern, competitive society.
The state own airport hotel is expected to occupy 6-7 acres of land.
