China hotelier eyes old Hideaway site

Old Hideaway Hotel site at Mulivai, Safata

One of the sites Chinese hotel interests are scouting is the old Hideaway Hotel location at Mulivai, Safata.

This was revealed by Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi during his weekly radio programme on 2AP this week.

“Government is looking forward to this development,” he said. “It will be the catalyst of opening up Samoa to the lucrative Asian tourism market. Flights will come direct from China to Apia.”

Two other sites the Chinese are looking at is part of STEC property at Mulifanua and a beach location at Sa’anapu.

According to Samoa’s High Commissioner to China, Tapusalaia Terry To’omata, details of the planned 600-room hotel should be confirmed later this year.

Two delegations of Chinese investors were in the country last month scoping out these possible hotel sites.
