First Hut Hotel in Kerman

Iran’s first hut hotel is scheduled to open on November 21 in south-central Kerman Province, according to Mohammad Jahanshahi, the tourism deputy at the provincial Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism department. Built on a one-hectare plot in Qaleh Ganji County, the project cost 20 billion rials ($588,000), Mehr News Agency reported. The hotel comprises 31 huts and can accommodate up to 60 guests. Every hut has a separate bathroom. In form and structure, the huts mirror local architecture and were inspired by regional influences, Jahanshahi said. “They are made with wood, thatch and local plants, such as palm tree trunks.” Like other hotels, the resort has a reception desk. Each hut has sanitary facilities of its own. All items in the huts are made locally by the inhabitants of Qaleh-Ganj.  “We tried to use local resources as much as possible,” Jahanshahi said.  The resort is expected to attract tourists in cool seasons. “We have asked travel agencies to organize winter tours to this part of Kerman, so that tourists can experience staying in the huts,” the official said, adding that boosting regional tourism would also help the local economy.
