Abu Dhabis Tourism Development & Investment Company (TDIC) has invited companies to prequalify for a hotel project on Sir Bani Yas Island in the west of the emirate.
The contract entails building a three- to four-star hotel on a 110,000 square-metre beach-front plot under a 30-year land lease. The minimum acceptable bid for leasing the land will be AED1m ($272,000) a year.
Sir Bani Yas Island has private airport access, port/marina facilities and an Arabian wildlife park.
Bids for prequalification are due on 9 June.
In April, TDIC invited contractors to prequalify for a deal involving the construction of a hotel development in the emirates Western Region.
The scheme includes a four-star hotel offering 100 rooms, a souk with retail units and restaurants, ten standalone lounges and staff accommodation.
The main contract works include concrete substructure, mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) works, interior fit-out works and external works with swimming pools and landscaping.
