Hotel gets a new look


Renovation work at Sharjah's Hotel Holiday International is scheduled to end in August promising visitors to the UAE emirate a higher standard of service and accommodation.

The hotel, located on the edge of the magnificent Khalid Lagoon and close to the emirate's business district, offers year-round attractive packages combining quality and affordability for visitors.

Holiday International, which is owned and operated by Sharjah National Hotels, is ideally located to tap into the booming travel and tourism industry in the country, thanks to the many events, festivals and exhibitions which are drawing international travellers to UAE.

"The hotel can provide the best that Sharjah has to offer visitors - crystal blue waters and golden beaches combined with an aura of tradition and culture," said a hotel spokesman.

"Holiday International's proximity to shopping and exhibition centres and the airport has made it one of the most attractive addresses in the city."

The hotel offers 254 luxurious rooms and suites featuring high quality furnishings and equipped with multi-channel television, mini bar, hair dryer, safety deposit box and individual balconies.

"Added benefits such as a professional laundry and valet service, car rentals, on call doctor, direct dialing facilities and daily shuttle service to Dubai makes sure that the guest has a memorable and enjoyable stay," said the spokesman.

The hotel also offers a wide choice of cuisine and restaurants to choose from including Oasis Restaurant and the Fisherman's Wharf.

Holiday International also has world class conference and banqueting facilities to cater to every occasion.

"The roof top Al Kasr Banquet Hall lends a traditional Arabic charm to any party or function while the Al Majilis meeting room is a perfect place to host an important meeting or training session as it is equipped with state of the art audio-visual facilities," said the spokesman.

"The grand Al Dana Ballroom can accommodate around 800 people and provides the perfect and elegant venue for banquets, launches, conferences, shows and weddings."

The hotel also has a modern fitness centre with the latest equipment, a spa which features a Jacuzzi, a steam room, sauna and massage facilities and other recreational facilities.

The sprawling recreational area offers an array of facilities such as tennis courts, temperature controlled swimming pool, children's pool, playground and basketball and volleyball courts.
