Romanian all-inclusive Terra resort

Five resort-like complexes will be developed on the Black Sea Coast in the Terra resort still to be developed near the 23 August commune. The new resort could attract dozens of thousands of tourists every year, especially German and Austrian ones, ‘Gandul’ daily says. The downside to it is that the state will need to invest in road infrastructure and utilities a total of EUR 7 M, because the road and the water and power supply network are provided by the local authorities. The local mayor hopes to receive the funds needed to start the project. “Every time she came to the seaside, (Tourism and Regional Development) Minister Udrea invited all the mayors in the county. She saw the plans, she was thrilled by the zoning plans, was happy about it and said it would be something nice. We asked her if she would help us and she said the money would come either from the state budget or from European funds. She told me: ‘Mugur, despite poverty, we will give it to you’. She means well,” Mayor Mugur Mitrana says. Despite the industry’s efforts, the all-inclusive regime has not been really successful in Romania, Corina Martin, President of the National Association of Tour Agencies (ANAT) said, contradicting the general theory that Romanians simply love all-inclusive holidays. “There are only two hotels in Mamaia – three and four start hotels – that still offer this service; two years ago there were nine such hotels. They gave up because it wasn’t successful,” Martin said.
