Gulf Hotels Group (GHG), Bahrain’s leading home-grown hospitality provider, announced the soft opening of its first UAE property, The Gulf Court Hotel Business Bay, last month. The opening is the first phase of GHG’s expansion plan across the region.
The four-star deluxe hotel offers a total of 270 rooms, including superior rooms to suites, which overlook the Dubai Water Canal. Gulf Court Hotel Business Bay boasts fine-dining restaurants alongside impressive lounges and a grand banquet hall. Other facilities include meeting rooms, a swimming pool, fitness centre and spa. The hotel also has a nightclub and karaoke room for both in-house and public guests.
Located 15 minutes away from Dubai International Airport, the hotel will cater to both business and leisure travellers. Its location is in close proximity to the central commercial and business district, and lends itself for easy access to Dubai Mall, while facing the world’s tallest building – both of which are within two kilometres walk.
The hotel welcomed its first guests, Abdulrahman Al Hujaylan and Khalid Al Hujaylan, who were received by GHG’s director of operations Nils Axing, Gulf Court Hotel Business Bay general manager Marc Voller and members of the management team.
Garfield Jones, Gulf Hotels Group CEO said, “It is another landmark day in the history of the Group. Since the opening of the Gulf Hotel Bahrain Convention & Spa back in 1969, the Group has been committed to delivering the highest standards of Bahraini hospitality. The opening of Gulf Court Hotel Business Bay is the first step of our regional expansion program, which will include Saudi Arabia and other GCC countries in the future.”
“We aim to deliver the same standard of hospitality, that has made Gulf Hotel an iconic property brand. We aim to provide all of our guests with a little taste of ‘home away from home.”
