UAE hospitality group to open 6 new properties
Dubai, May 8, 2013
Hospitality Management Holdings (HMH), one of UAE's most successful home-grown hospitality chains, plans to launch six new properties in the next two years, said its top official.
The holding company of three successful brands - Coral Hotels & Resorts, Corp Executive Hotels and EWA Hotel Apartments - HMH also marks the completion of its ten successful years in the hospitality industry.
Announcing this at the ongoing Arabian Travel Market expo, COO Friedrich Albrecht said HMH is aiming to expand its business into newer markets which will also see the additional 1300 rooms to its current portfolio of 3,400 by 2015.
“Our business is intensely focused on customer satisfaction which has led to a high organic growth for HMH in the region. With the addition of new properties, HMH is looking at a 15 per cent growth in the properties under its management," he explained.
"Our expansions come with the assurance of continued focus on customer satisfaction and service offerings by HMH. Part of this focus is also the introduction of an active online reputation management tool launched in association with Olery Reputation to collect and assess guest experiences in real-time for all of our properties," stated Albrecht.
The properties set to launch include Coral Plaza in Muscat; Coral Hotel at Sports City, Dubai; Corp Noor Khartoum; and Bada Oasis in the UAE, and Ewa Nile Tower, Khartoum and Ewa Port in Sudan.
The Group currently has 25 properties under its current management portfolio, and over 3,400 rooms under its management.
“Apart from the UAE where we continue to develop both in terms of operations and quality of service offerings HMH is looking to ascertain its strength in Sudan where it has already established its leadership," remarked Albrecht.
"Our focus in the immediate future is also Saudi Arabia, where we see our key business strengths in hotel management add immensely to our success," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
