Gold Mohur Hotel and Resort in Yemen is just like having your own beach," says Omar Rabi, general manager of the hotel.
According to Rabi the property has a unique location overlooking Aden Bay, surrounded by a palm garden, and virgin volcanic mountains.
Nearly 20 to 30 per cent of the hotel's leisure travellers come from the GCC. "For Saudis and Omanis it is a matter of few hours drive!" says Rabi.
Rabi admits that the volatile political situation in the region had caused tourism levels to drop. He does, however, feel that private sector efforts are due, and would certainly make the difference in further promoting tourism.
He added that the Yemeni government, along with the private sector, was doing its best to promote the country through advertisements, and participation in international tourism fares.
Rabis says that Yemen with its "beauty, simplicity, climate and hospitable people" had a lot to offer tourists from all over the world. Plans are underway to develop a leisure village at the hotel.
The hotel also offers a number of packages like Bed and Breakfast with Dolphins, Bed and Terrain, Bed and Boat, a Weekend package and a Sports package.
