Ribas Hotels Group LLC (Odesa), the managing company of the national chain of three- and four-star hotel and restaurant complexes, has completed the acquisition of a hotel in Bukovel, Ivano-Frankivsk region, and plans to build a new one there by the end of 2019. “In December 2019, the managing company Ribas Hotels Group plans to open a new hotel in Bukovel. The facility is located in Polianytsia (162a Vyshni Street), next to ski lift No. 1,” the company’s press service told Interfax-Ukraine.
The new hotel will be built on the site of the previously acquired hotel facility, which has already been dismantled. The hotel will occupy 3,200 square meters; $4 million will be invested in the project, the company said. “The hotel will offer 45 rooms, and include a spacious restaurant with a terrace, co-working with panoramic mountain views. Before the blueprints were drawn up, we talked to pro skiers and snowboarders, so infrastructure for active tourists takes into account the smallest details… There will also be rooms for guests with disabilities,” General Director of Ribas Hotels Group Artur Lupashko said.
According to him, the swimming pool, Finnish saunas and Roman baths, spa tubs, a massage parlor and a large spa area are almost ready.
As Lupashko earlier said, Ribas Hotels Group in 2019 plans to channel UAH 300 million in investors’ funds into the construction of new hotels. As of February 2019, it manages 25 hospitality facilities.
