A group of businessmen attached to the Caribbean Marketing Enterprise Inc (CMEI) plans to build two branded hotels on 20 acres of land at Ogle, East Coast Demerara. The announcement was made today by the National Industrial & Commercial Investments Limited (NICIL), and comes
right off the heels of a recent statement made earlier this week that an AC Marriott Hotel will be constructed in that same community.

According to NICIL, CMEI was incorporated on 24th April, 2017, under the Companies Act of Guyana 1991, (Chapter 89:01), with registered office at 199 Thomas Street, Kitty, Georgetown.

The company is owned by a group of businessmen / investors who possess “vast experience and expertise in the fields of financial management, engineering and construction capabilities. Over the years they have successfully led their own companies and served on numerous boards as consultants in varied fields internationally”, NICIL said.

According to the statement, the company secured 20 acres, which will be used for the construction of the two hotels “uniquely positioned in a complex driven by solar power, therein consistent with Guyana‘s “green economy” vision.

One of the Directors of Caribbean Marketing Enterprises Inc and CEO of ERES, Mike Elliot, has built hotels for the world’s leading hotel brands including Hilton, Marriott, IHG, Choice and Hyatt, NICIL said.

CMEI will construct the hotels in the 120-130 room range with world class amenities inclusive of a miniature golf course, clubhouse, entertainment centre, swimming pool, solar farm and green space allocation”. NICIL said that the land use has been divided as follows:

Solar Farm 7.5 acres
Club House / Entertainment Centre / Mini Golf Course 5 acres
Hotel #1 and supporting commercial 4 acres
Hotel #2 and supporting commercial 3.5 acres

They are currently concluding negotiations with hospitality partners for the two hotels at Plantation Ogle and other sites in Guyana.
The sod turning ceremony will be held on Wednesday.
