The ultra-luxurious hotel complex will use a three-storey ministry building as its lobby, including restaurants and meeting rooms. A five-storey 250-room wing will then be added behind the ministry building. There will be underground parking, manicured lawns and state-of-the-art video-conferencing facilities, all house in the elegant French colonial setting.
