Iraq as a whole , and Kurdistan Region in particular is enjoying unprecedented economic growth in all fields , especially tourism , trade , and construction. Flow of foreign investment is increasing year in year out , so is local investment , thanks to the stable security environment, encouragement of Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) through laws and regulations that encourage investment and economic growth , increasing personal income of individuals , and the unique climatic conditions and landscape beauty the area enjoys.
We decided couple of years ago to construct a small-scale tourist project in Anishki in Duhok governorate of Kurdistan,Iraq . On an area of 12,000 M2 , we constructed ;
– Five houses each of an area of 70 M2 and an attached garden of 45 M2 for every house.
– Restaurant of an area of 140M2 , with a kitchen area of 40M2.
– Garden of the restaurant is of an area of 1000 M2.
Next to this project is an ancient cave that draws some 4000 visitors every year , and those visitors choose to stay in Duhok city for the night as there are no accommodation (motels/hotels) available in the area.
The weather is very nice during the period April – September , and is also comfortable in March and October , but in the winter the area is characterized with fall of snow especially in the months of December, January, and February.
The project was opened and one house is leased for $ 100 to $ 150 per night .
The following is recommended to be added to the project to make is medium-scale tourist project :
– hotel with 30 rooms (12 suites and 18 rooms)
– swimming pool
– 20 tourist house
– Recreation facilities and playground
