Plans have been revealed for a resort-style hotel addition with an investment of $50m at OWA Parks & Resort in the US state of Alabama.
To be situated on the north-east side of the Tropic Falls waterpark in the city of Foley, the expansion plans were revealed by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, a federally recognised tribe of Native Americans, as reported by YellowHammerNews.
The overall investment in the OWA Parks & Resort destination will reach $414m with the addition of the new resort hotel, which is scheduled to open in May 2025.
Creek Indian Enterprises Development Authority president and CEO Cody Williamson said: “We are very excited to add this tropical-inspired resort hotel to our portfolio. This new hotel will give guests another option to relax in coastal Alabama while still enjoying all the fun amenities that OWA has to offer.
“We continue to focus on these types of investment projects, which enable us to remain a strong economic partner for the local tourism industry and State of Alabama.”
Currently in the design phase, the multi-storey hotel is expected to offer tropical-themed guest rooms with a kitchenette and workspace.
