Pakistani Investors Invited to Invest in Religious Tourism Project in Holy Cities

Karachi: A Dubai based real estate developer is looking for investors from Pakistan to invest in holy cities across Middle East including the first five-star luxury hotel in the holy city of Karbala, Iraq.

Introducing the project to media at a local hotel, Range Hospitality Business Development Director Shafaat Rasool Hashmi said that “Al-Rawdatain residences and hotel project currently under-construction is a good investment opportunity for those Pakistanis who want to put their money in global projects of religious tourism. It is a niche market, which has remained unaffected by wars and the global recession”.

The hotel and residences project, launched in August 2010, with 624 apartments offers Shariah compliant fractional ownership and is expected to be completed by the end of next year. Managed by Shaza Hotels, it will be ground-plus 12 hospitality project spread over an area of 65,000 square-meters and is located less than a kilometer away from the holy shrines.

Given the gap in demand and supply for residences near the holy shrines in Karbala, Hashmi said “The property is likely to fetch high rents considering the current per-night rate charged by two-star hotel is US$ 300″. In view of current market trends you can expect a net return on investment (ROI) of up to 20%. Moreover you are likely to recover your total investment within the first five years”.
