To date, six hotels on the island have already received assistance from the Region, for projects completed or underway. For half of them, the files are already on sale. This is, in Saint-Gilles-les-Bains (PHOTO), the Alamanda, Creoles, and the Iloha in Saint-Leu. These cases represent a total of 28 new rooms, 130 renovated rooms and 42 jobs created. The total investment of 6.5 million has been hedged at 1.6 million euro by the regional council.

An island where land is scarce

Three other cases, receive a favorable opinion, but have not yet resulted in the start sites. This is the future of hotel Salazes, in Salazie, where 36 three star rooms will be created, for $ 6.7 million, hedged at € 2.1 million by the Region. Flying is also the blades, at St. Peter's, where 60 three star rooms will be created for 6.6 million euros, of which 1.5 million euros in the Region. Finally, the Hotel des Palmiers, St. Denis, will result in the creation of 40 three-star rooms, with a grant from the Region of 600,000 euros, for a total investment of 4, 4 million euros.

"

To retrofit the existing hotel portfolio

Other files of grant applications are currently under investigation by the services of the Region. They represent a total of 247 new rooms, 253 renovated and 122 jobs created. "Whatever the development of tourism in the Meeting, our rooms were previously classified as insufficient and unsatisfactory, David Lorion remember. It was important to make the effort to renovate them. We have therefore chosen primarily to retrofit the existing hotel portfolio, sometimes of poor quality. But it will also help the region's smaller projects, proximity. This is why we will change the policy frameworks of the Region, so that these small businesses can be integrated with regional subsidies, "he concludes.
