Coral International Hotels, Resorts & Spas is all set to have a strong presence at ATM 2005 with two booths – one at the Dubai stand by Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) and the other at the Sharjah stand by Sharjah Commerce & Tourism Development Authority (SCTDA).
Informed Mr Fadi Mazkour, director of business development, Coral International Hotels, Resorts & Spas, “We are very excited about the ATM this year since our business has grown phenomenally over the past months. We have just launched Coral Oriental, Dubai, and are preparing for the opening of Coral Boutique Hotel Apartments. By the end of the year, we are looking at launching Coral Al Nahda Resort & Spa in Al Barka, Oman.”
Just back from major international travel and tourism exhibitions such as EMITT in Istanbul, ITB Berlin and MITT in Moscow, where Coral International Hotels, Resorts & Spas got a very enthusiastic response from most tour operators and travel agencies, Mazkour is working on some very lucrative projects. “We are in serious discussions with several groups and have received strong indications for concluding some fantastic deals,” he said. “We hope to make an announcement soon.”
Launched on April 27, Coral Oriental, Dubai, is a distinctive hotel offering uncompromising service and unmatched convenience. Located on Naif Road in Deira, it is within walking distance of the city’s financial, cultural and shopping districts, and has everything to fulfill the expectations and aspirations of its guests. “In the midst of a buzzing urban location, Coral Oriental, Dubai, boasts attentive, friendly service and 96 beautifully appointed suites and guestrooms that offer total comfort and deluxe amenities,” added Mazkour. “It is a modest, friendly, efficiently run establishment that’s perfect for families, tourist and businessmen on a budget.”
One property that is bound to generate tremendous excitement at the ATM is Coral Boutique Hotel Apartments, whose aura of warmth and discreet luxury combine with exceptional level of service to make it one of the city’s most luxurious five-star boutique residences. All set to open its door, the elegant six-storey building has 13 spacious, furnished deluxe apartments on every floor.
Informed Mazkour, “Guests have a choice between one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. Each is well-equipped to meet the exacting criteria of today’s international business and leisure travellers.”
Yet another eagerly-awaited project is the Coral Al Nahda Resort & Spa in Al Barka, Oman. “Work has been progressing fast at Coral Al Nahda Resort & Spa that is currently under construction and due to open later this year,” said Mazkour. “Owned by the Al Bahja Group of Companies and managed by Coral International Hotels, Resorts & Spas, Coral Al Nahda is a luxurious property that is at once beautiful and beckoning. A paradise of purity and peace, it’s a wellness centre that has been designed to lure guests away from the frenetic rhythms of their daily lives. The resort has evolved from the imagination of its owner Ajit Hamlai and combines both ancient and modern skills, disciplines, rituals and therapies to help you learn ways to improve your lifestyle. Besides the superb spa the resort also has a partly underground meditation centre that’s a haven of calm and relaxation.
Coral International Hotels, Resorts & Spas, which recently announced its affiliation to Boutique Hotels & Resorts International (BHRI), an alliance of independent, selected boutique hotels and resorts from around the globe, is also the first hotel chain in the Middle East to be affiliated with BHRI.
