Green light for a new 400 bed hotel in Lanzarote despite tourism being ‘saturated’
The Canary Islands Government has granted approval for the construction of a new hotel in Lanzarote with 407 beds, despite the Cabildo starting the process for the island to be officially declared as a "Touristically Saturated Zone" in May, by the previous president, Maria Dolores Corujo.
As reported by Diario de Lanzarote, the hotel development project is spearheaded by the company Toscolanz, which intends to build the 128-room complex in an area exceeding 50,000 square metres in Costa Teguise.
The plot currently houses the widely recognized 'skeleton of Costa Teguise,' a partially constructed apartment complex that has been abandoned for several years.
The spokesperson for the regional government, Alfonso Cabello, has emphasized that the establishment "must meet standards of building quality and service offered, ensuring minimal environmental impact in terms of water conservation, noise and light pollution, and waste management," among other essential provisions.
