24 February 2008 - 'V…Greece on The World' announced a boutique hotel project with units for sale to investors who can stay for 2 months a year, and get 50% of the income from the other 10 months. Baron Jean van Gysel de Meise is the name behind the project.

Designers are Architetti Associatti of Italy. Baron van Gysel says ''V…Greece on The World' is a simply vision of beauty inspired by light and water. It emphasizes an interesting balance of interior space and exterior landscaping offering a vision of pure and simplistic comfort and ultimate luxury." which could easily be a description of a camping site. With inflatable mattresses for luxury beds.

A 1000 foot marina with 16 moorings will be included. Also a spa, and restaurants with good service. Baron van Gysel reckons "Service in Dubai is not up to par. It doesn't compare to the five-star that you get in parts of Europe. V...Greece aims to be a benchmark for service in Dubai," (from Gulf News report 25 Feb 2008). pages with related information
