That's a good question.

Lan Lethere are many facilities and trees here

Here, the use of "there are" is straightforward, because we have two plural subjects (many facilities and trees).

Lan Lethere is a hotel , a park

Here, we use "there is" because the first subject is singular. "There are a" doesn't sound great in English.

Thanks so much !
