The visit comprised a viewing of the completed construction works for the Sustainable City - Yiti, which is part of the first phase of the master plan for the Yiti Integrated Tourism Development.

During the visit, they had the chance to visit a model of one of the resort's luxurious chalets, which will be available once the resort is completed. The model showcases the concepts of luxury and hospitality that are signature to Nikki Beach resorts worldwide.
