Veteran to head Sharjah resort


Austrian-born hotel veteran Martin H Kolb returns to the Middle East to launch Sharjah's latest hotel, the Coral Beach Resort, scheduled to open in summer.

Kolb, who was in Sharjah two years ago with the Holiday Inn Resort, returns to head the new hotel located along the emirate's coastline.

The property, previously known as Coral Beach Hotel, is to be re-launched as Coral Beach Resort Ñ a 4-star deluxe property.

Kolb brings with him a wealth of experience gained from within the entire travel and tourism industry.

After his Swiss education in business administration, Kolb began his career in tourism with Kontiki Travel, moving to Zurich-based Kuoni Travel Company and then on to United Airlines in Chicago. He has worked with Starwood's Hotel Imperial and Bristol in Vienna.
