Swiss-Belhotel International headquartered in Hong Kong, unveiled the Emirate of Sharjah as the location for the group’s first property in the United Arab Emirates. The property will be known as the Swiss-Belhotel Resort & Spa, Sharjah.



The new resort hotel is a result of a management agreement between a private high-profile Sharjah investor and Swiss-Belhotel International. The Architectural and Engineering Consultants for this resort hotel are QHC – Architects and Engineers, a leading local Consultancy firm with offices in Sharjah, Dubai and Ras Al Khaimah. The hotel construction is expected to be completed within 22 months.



“We are delighted to have partnered with a local Emirati businessman in our first hotel venture in Sharjah. Like Swiss-Belhotel International, he has confidence in the development of Sharjah as a tourism destination and shares our enthusiasm to build a first class beachfront hotel offering the highest levels of service. We envisage the hotel as a destination not only for tourists but also adding to the social infrastructure of the growing city,” said Mr Gavin Faull, President, Swiss-Belhotel International.



The Sharjah property announcement follows quickly on the heels of the group’s recent Kuwait and Qatar announcements. Swiss-Belhotel International is planning to add several properties to its Middle Eastern portfolio over the coming years in both resort and city locations.



“We are pleased to announce the construction of the Sharjah property as our first in the United Arab Emirates. Sharjah is rapidly developing, particularly in terms of its tourism sector,” said Mr Gavin Faull, President, Swiss-Belhotel International.



“Sharjah offers an attractive business environment, which has lured a number of leading brands and companies to the Emirate, and we are delighted Swiss-Belhotel International is part of this rapid development phase. The Emirate enjoyed impressive economic growth in 2006 and substantial foreign investment as a result of high performing business sectors. Now is the ideal time for Swiss-Belhotel International to enter the market,” he added.
