First Branded Hotel & Suites premises in the Emirate; a catalyst for further expansion in the region, says CHI Chief Executive Officer.
Multi-brand hotel operator CHI Hotels & Resorts (CHI) announces the opening of the Ramada Sharjah, the first Ramada branded hotel & suites property in the Emirate of Sharjah. The hotel, owned by the renowned A.A. Al Moosa Enterprises, marks a new direction in luxury hospitality in Sharjah.
CHI Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director Tony Potter remarked “The opening of the Ramada Sharjah is a red-letter day for CHI as it not only marks our company’s first hotel operation in the Emirate, but also our introduction for the first time of the popular and highly-rated Ramada brand to the wonderful city of Sharjah. We will draw on our considerable management expertise to ensure that this new property in Sharjah will become an international success. It should also serve as a catalyst for the company’s further expansion in the region.”
Conveniently located in Sharjah on Al Nahda street, opposite the ever-popular Sahara Centre, the 250-suite hotel (50 one-bedroom and 200 two-bedroom) is designed with the discerning traveller in mind, with state-of-the-art facilities such as high-speed internet access, a fully-equipped business centre, two meeting rooms, a pool and health club, the ‘Jasmine’ coffee shop and ‘Zaafaran’, a fabulous restaurant serving the finest international cuisine.
In addition, the hotel’s central location and easy connectivity to major roads and highways, puts all of Dubai and Sharjah’s main attractions and major leisure nerve centres – Sahara Centre, Sharjah Lagoon and Corniche, Deira City Centre and Dubai International Airport within easy reach.
“In order to compete effectively in the UAE’s booming hospitality sector, we knew we would have to introduce a brand that wasn’t just different or affordable, but one that truly understands the discerning corporate and leisure traveler’s needs, namely proximity to business hubs, in-room conveniences and connectivity.” said the new hotel’s General Manager Tamas Fazekas.
All of Ramada Sharjah’s rooms, suites and apartments have been tastefully designed and decorated to ensure that guests have a comfortable and memorable stay. In-room facilities include flat-screen TV, wireless internet access, safety deposit box, room service, tea and coffee making facilities, a washing machine, a fully-equipped kitchen and a free daily newspaper.
In order to unwind, guests can cross the road to visit the region’s most popular shopping destination, Sahara Centre, or have a work out at the health club before taking a dip in the heated indoor pool.
