Gulf Hotels Group (GHG), Bahrain’s home-grown hospitality provider, has announced the official opening of its first UAE property, The Gulf Court Hotel Business Bay. The 4-star property marks the first phase of GHG’s expansion plan across the region.
GHG has been committed to delivering the highest standards of Bahraini hospitality since the opening of the Gulf Hotel Bahrain Convention & Spa back in 1969. Recognizing a significant increase in demand in the MENA region, GHG believes this is the right time to launch their expansion plans.
The Gulf Court Hotel Business Bay is fully operational, and currently forecasting an occupancy of 75% for the first 3 months of the year. The hotel brings affordable luxury and stylish accommodation options to the city. The staff values service excellence and treats every guest with care and dedication.
Garfield Jones, Gulf Hotels Group CEO, said, “The opening of Gulf Court Hotel Business Bay represents the first step on the Group’s strategy to expand hospitality operations into the MENA region, and we are aiming to follow up the opening of the hotel with further expansion both in the UAE and neighboring GCC countries. The Gulf Court Hotel offers visitors a true taste of Arabic hospitality that our hotels in Bahrain – the Gulf Hotel, The K Hotel and Asdal Gulf Inn – are renowned for. It also builds on the company’s reputation for delivering an excellent food, beverage and leisure product.”
The start of 2019 has indicated a significant increase in demand in the hospitality sector. However, this demand is supported by a growing supply, which has led to a slowdown in RevPAR development. From a global perspective, occupancy levels in the UAE, and Dubai as a destination, remains high, which creates good opportunities for the hospitality industry in the region.
