This is the fifth property to start operations under the Coral International banner. On the occasion were also unveiled the new development plans and philosophy for the company that’s targeted at providing a safe and healthy environment to customers and employees alike.
Michel PJ Noblet, managing director, Coral International Hotels, Resorts & Spas, said, “We are delighted to launch this beautiful and luxurious property that’s endowed with many unique facilities. This unit complements the Coral International network that’s so far got five properties running in the UAE including Coral Beach Resort, Sharjah; Coral Deira, Dubai; Coral Suites, Ajman and Coral Oriental, Dubai.”
Talking about the new developments, he added: “Our aim is to fulfil our commercial objectives, while ensuring maximum quality and service to all customers, employees and owners. We have two properties coming up in Beirut – one in Raouche and another in Commodore. Underway is a major expansion at Coral Beach Resort, Sharjah, too that will add 64 deluxe chalets and 150 rooms to the existing 156 keys. It will also add to the property a banquet hall with a seating capacity of 1,000 and a unique state-of-the-art spa and fitness centre. We are working on a 40-storey tower in Sharjah and a unique project in Abu Dhabi as well. ”
Besides standard four- and five-star hotels, Coral International prides itself in the development and management of Heritage properties that seek to capture the essence of local culture with all modern comforts. Giving a lowdown on the upcoming projects, Noblet said, “We have a beautiful beach resort coming up in Ras Al Khaima that would include 220 chalets and many interesting food outlets besides a massive recreation area and banqueting facility. On the way is also a Desert Resort in Ras Al Khaima that would have 90 rooms and 30 bungalows with the possibility of extension. There would also be a learning centre located there offering world-class training facilities and exciting team-building activities.”
