Fujairah hotel eyes business tourists
Dubai, April 24, 2008
Al Diar Siji Hotel, a 5-star business hotel managed by Abu Dhabi National Hotels (ADNH), is eyeing the upcoming Arabian Travel Market (ATM) to woobusiness tourists and corporate travelers to Fujairah.
Siji Hotel’s exhibit in the Fujairah Tourism Board stand at the ATM, which runs from May6 to 9 in Dubai, will focus on its business packages for the corporate clients and business travelers including its Executive Club promotions, as well as it banqueting and conferencing facilities, said a hotel official.
'As a 5-star business hotel, Al Diar Siji Hotel has everything that corporate clients or business travelers would need in conducting meetings, conferences and other business concerns. The hotel offers one of the largest conference and banqueting rooms in the emirate which can accommodate up to 700 guests,' Fouad Melhem, the hotel’s general manager.
'We have hosted the 5th Fujairah International Bunkering & Fuel Oil Forum with 200 delegates from 30 countries in 2007,” he noted.
“We will also promote our executive club which offers personalised services and complimentary benefits to our executive floor guests,” Melhem added.
Since inception, Al Diar Siji Hotel has positioned itself as a business hotel and its main markets are the business and corporate clients from within the UAE.
However, the hotel’s market expands with the growth of Fujairah as an Emirate, and is likewise targeting tourists or the leisure segments from the GCC and some European countries.
Early this year, Siji joined the elite list of 5-star hotels in the GCC with HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Control Point System) certification after a series of upgrades in its F&B services, facilities and procedures.
This official recognition was awarded by the global standards development group, BSI Management Systems. HACCP is recognized worldwide to ensure guests’ protection with regard to food and beverage.-TradeArabia News Service
