It is said to have all the amenities expected of a five-star hotel.  

China Communications Construction Company (CCCC) has been selected to execute the construction of the project.  

The five-star property is expected to transform Enugu into a hub for investment, business, tourism, and leisure. 

It is intended to expand the state’s economy from its current $4.4bn to $30bn within four to eight years. 

The state government has committed to providing all necessary support to ensure the timely completion of the hotel without cost hike.  

Governor Dr. Peter Mbah said: “We have been assured by the contractor that this project will be ready in eleven months. So, we are hoping to come here by April next year to commission this project. We are going to be on them and we have been assured that they are going to work day and night because we are hoping that the International Conference Centre where work is already going on will be ready a few months from now. 

“We want to optimise the Conference Centre and we have been assured that there will be no variation and there will be no time overrun.”
