Al Diar Siji Hotel, a five star business hotel managed by Abu Dhabi National Hotels (ADNH) is all set in its bid to boost the Emirate of Fujairah as alternative venue for banqueting and conferencing events as it participates in the GIBTM.
Siji Hotel will be part of the Al Diar Hotels & Resorts, a division under ADNH, and will present its business packages and events facilities as well as the Emirate of Fujairah.
“We will be promoting Al Diar Siji Hotel and Fujairah not only for tourism activities but also as an ideal destination for banquets and conferences,” explained Fouad Melhem, the hotel’s general manager.
Al Diar Siji Hotel offers one of the largest conference and banqueting rooms in the region. Conference facilities include the Masafi Ballroom which features sound proof foldable walls and can accommodate up to 700 guests. It also has the Al Majlis executive lounge which is fully equipped with amenities for small and private meetings, and a well equipped auditorium with seating capacity for more than 100 people.
The emirate of Fujairah is already a tourist destination among UAE residents who increasingly holiday here, and has experienced rapid growth and developments in terms of infrastructure, economy and tourism in recent years.
“Siji Hotel has also witnessed this increase in foreign tourists and it is one of the factors for the surge in occupany rates of the hotel last year. However, Fujairah also has a big potential in terms of hosting banquets and conferences.
“As more and more developments happen in Fujairah including the Dubai-Fujairah highway which once finished will cut the travel time between the two emirates to just 45 minutes, with its mountains, waterfalls, and long beaches, not to mention the other hotels opening soon, Fujairah will be the next best alternative conferencing and banqueting destination in the UAE,” said Melhem.
