Prince Hotels to build new hotel to Ginowan City

Date Posted: 2004-05-27

Prince Hotels, one of Japan’s largest hotel chains announced Saturday plans to construct a new hotel near Okinawa Convention Center in Ginowan City. This hotel will be the first Prince Hotel in Okinawa.

According to Hirotsuyo Yamaguchi, the president of Prince Hotels Co. the new hotel will be constructed on a landfill on the south side of the Convention Center. It is scheduled to open late in 2006 while the construction work would begin in January 2005.

Ginowan City owns the land that was originally meant to be the site of the new Okinawa Duty Free shopping complex. When the developers of that complex decided to move the site to Omoromachi in Naha City, Ginowan City was left to look for new prospective tenants.
According to Ginowan City officials the final contract of the project will be signed by the end of this week.

The construction cost is expected to total ¥12 billion with financing coming both from Okinawan and mainland sources.

Prince Hotels currently operate a total of 84 hotels both in Japan and overseas including hotels in Hawaii, Canada, Taiwan and Malaysia. Officials at Prince Hotels Co. say that Okinawa makes an ideal addition to their chain. “Okinawa is a treasure for tourists as there’s everything a vacationer would want. It has a beautiful ocean and beaches, there is yachting, cruising, diving and every other marine leisure activity imaginable,” a Prince spokesman enthused. He also said that the company plans to market the new hotel under the title “Marine City Resort Prince Hotel Okinawa.”

The new hotel will have more than 500 rooms. Its specialty will be “The Asian Town” project that is a shopping and restaurant complex in the vicinity of the hotel that would have more than 30 tenants from various Asian countries including Hong Kong, Vietnam, Thailand and Korea.
