JAL Hotels makes its debut in the Middle Eastern market with the opening of this hotel, and will be the first Japanese hotel operator joining the UAE’s five-star-hotel market. “It is a new venture for JAL Hotels in the Middle East and they bring an element of Japanese culture to the region. In many ways, our services and facilities in the resort will have a genuine Japanese influence, which is very important and very popular,” said Gueuning. “Fujairah has been attracting a lot of attention as a popular resort destination among international travel planners and MICE organizers. Our presence here in Fujairah gives all potential guests a choice, and any traveller, tour representative or agent will benefit as now there is a variety of accommodation and services available to them. It is really about giving them a choice.”
