On August 1, Turkmen President Serdar Berdimuhamedov (who is officially on vacation) opened the Rowaç (Rovach) cottage complex in the Avaza National Tourist Zone, built by members of the Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (UIET), state information agency TDH reports .
According to the newspaper, the new complex is designed for 240 families and is able to accommodate about 900 people at the same time. That is, these cottages are obviously intended for rental during the holidays, and not for sale.
In total, 48 two-story cottages were built on a plot of 10 hectares, as well as sports and playgrounds, an outdoor pool and a restaurant.
An exhibition of dishes of national and foreign cuisine organized by the UIET was arranged for the president, and he, in turn, handed over to the chairman of the Union the keys to the cars intended for the new complex.
For the first time, a plan for the construction of a cottage complex was shown to President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov in June 2018. At that time, it was planned that the complex would have 63 cottages, and the presented development plan and the architecture of the houses differ significantly from the final version.
In July 2021, Berdimuhamedov Sr. came to check on the construction site of the complex. He was clearly dissatisfied with the results. The head of state said that the metal fences were of low quality, and the decor and color of the colors that painted the cottages' rooms did not meet the requirements and ordered that the shortcomings be corrected immediately.
The next inspection visit took place on May 5, 2022. Being already in the position of Chairman of the Halk Maslakhaty Milli Gengesh, Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov named the cottage complex “Rowaç”.
Rovach (Prosperity) is the nickname of Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov's favorite horse, which was presented to him as a foal at the beginning of 2019. Berdimuhamedov Sr. dedicated poems to him, to which, on the eve of the Akhal-Teke Day celebrated on April 27, he recorded a song with his grandson Kerimguly . While inspecting the fleet of ships in Avaza in the summer of 2019, the head of state took a fancy to one yacht, which he also named Rovach. In December 2019, the village of Rovach was opened in the Balkan velayat.
