LIONEL MESSI’s week could go from boom to boom after his £ 26million hotel is ordered to be demolished.
The Argentinian legend of Paris Saint-Germain was celebrating Monday when he lifted the Ballon d’Or for an incredible seventh time.
Now the £ 650,000-per-week striker could be on the verge of taking a hit, as the 77-room hotel he owns has proven to fall short of city standards.
Messi’s four-star ‘MiM Sitges’ is located not far from the private estate where he lived during his days in Barcelona and was one of his favorite places to visit.
According to El Confidencial, a court order for the demolition of the property is currently pending.
And they even approached Messi’s camp for comment, but neither he nor his team decided to discuss the matter.
Messi, who owns hotels in Ibiza and Mallorca with the Majestic Hotel group, spent £ 26million on the MiM Sitges hotel, located just over 30 meters from the sea, in 2017.
However, the new report says he did so without knowing that Sitges Town Hall had already ordered its demolition due to its failure to comply with building codes.
One of the problems is that the balconies are too big – but all construction depends on it and could cause the building to collapse if they were to be downsized or even demolished.
And the fire emergency plan has also failed authorities, according to the latest reports.
It is believed that Messi was only made aware of the demolition order when he was approached by the newspaper for comment.
The hotel has 77 rooms, including five junior suites and one suite, and costs around £ 105 per night in high season to stay in a standard room.
However, it’s the rooftop Sky Bar that sets MiM Sitges Hotel apart from the crowd, with a swimming pool, as well as incredible panoramic views of the city and the Mediterranean Sea, as well as a huge range of cocktails.
The hotel also has a top-notch spa, and alongside treatments and massages there is a hydrotherapy circuit (just £ 25 per person) which includes a sauna, Turkish bath, sensory showers, a recreational pool, a cold hot tub and a saltwater pool.
And as we know from Messi’s car choices, he cares about the environment.
The MiM Sitges hotel has been built in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way, with 80% of the materials used in the construction of the building being recycled or recyclable.
The hotel has tanks which collect the waste water from each shower which is then filtered, cleaned, treated and used in the toilets and for watering the plants.
