Las Vegas-based MJ Holdings, Inc. will launch the first of its eight currently planned health and wellness cannabis-based hotels in partnership with hotel developer Roger Bloss, former ceo of Vantage Hospitality Group.
Bloss, ceo and president of Alternative Hospitality, Inc., a division of MJ Holdings, will become one of the first hoteliers to launch a portfolio of health and wellness cannabis-based hotels featuring a dispensary, wellness goods, and services to educate guests about the health-enhancing aspects of cannabis.
The first hotel, the 150-room Coachill Inn Resort in Desert Hot Springs, California, will break ground later this year. It is designed by architect David Wallace and features an amphitheater and lazy river that connects to the area’s natural hot springs.
There are eight projects under consideration in states that have legalized marijuana, including three in Las Vegas, three in California, one in Michigan and one in Oklahoma. Each upper-midscale property will cost approximately $125,000 per key to build. Land costs are not included in that cost because Bloss and Alternative Hospitality have a unique development model that encourages joint ventures with existing landowners.
