Kerman Province's top tourism office has declared that construction of lodging facilities, particularly ecolodges, in the south of the province will face no problems in obtaining construction permits.  Mahmoud Vafaei, the head of the provincial office of Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization, said his office has received a number of proposals to build facilities similar to the one in Qaleh Ganj County, Kerman Province. Qaleh Ganj County is home to Iran's first hut hotel, which is inspired by regional influences and mirrors local architecture. Built on a one-hectare plot, the lodging facility comprises 31 huts and can accommodate up to 60 guests. "Construction of ecolodges is a top priority and provincial authorities will spare no effort for the development of this sector," Vafaei said.
