Group to showcase Seychelles hotels at ATM
Dubai, April 27, 2008
Dubai-based Jebel Ali International Hotels will showcase its two new luxury properties in Seychelles at the Arabian Travel Market 2008.
The travel industry show will run from May 6 to 9 at the Dubai International Exhibition and Convention Centre.
Since last year’s ATM, Jebel Ali International Hotels has signed management contracts for the exclusive 10-villa Round Island Resort which will open in the second quarter of 2009 and a 39-room boutique hotel on Mahé, named The Waterfront.
Round Island Resort is set within a designated National Marine Park and all villas will each have their own private swimming pool and beach access, outdoor deck, pavilion and access to a Lifestyle Spa and Wellness Centre which offers traditional eastern and western tailored spa treatments, said a statement.
Jebel Ali International Hotels, a successful owner and operator of various unique entities in Dubai, will conclude international contracting and finalise joint summer marketing campaigns for its array of local properties including the flagship Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa, which comprises the exclusive all-suite Palm Tree Court & Spa, a member of ‘The Leading Hotels of the World’ and the Jebel Ali Hotel.
Other properties include the Hatta Fort Hotel mountain retreat, Oasis Beach Hotel and the spacious luxury hotel apartments of the Oasis Beach Tower on the Jumeirah beach strip.
“ATM provides a perfect opportunity to showcase our portfolio to over 23,000 industry specialists and expose them to the fantastic local hospitality which contributes to Dubai’s incredible international demand,” said Mariaan du Plessis, director of marketing for the company’s corporate hospitality division.
“While our flagship property Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa is being expanded this summer with a luxury extension of 74 suites and junior suites at Palm Tree Court & Spa, the Hatta Fort Hotel is entering the season with a brand new set of refurbished rooms in the west wing along with a beautiful new Sunset Terrace overlooking the Hajar Mountains,” Du Plessis said.
The business activities of Jebel Ali International Hotels also boasts Bateaux Dubai, a unique dining cruise vessel on Dubai Creek; the Jebel Ali International Shooting Club; the Jebel Ali International Centre of Excellence; and Jumana - Secret of the Desert Show at the Al Sahra Desert Resort in Dubailand. Each of these special entities offers superior and distinctive products and services while never losing sight of their Arabian heritage and hospitality, Du Plessis said.
For public visitors, on the final day (May 9) of the show, Jebel Ali International Hotels will offer some exciting summer promotions for local UAE residents to enjoy a getaway break at some of Dubai’s finest hotels.
May 2008 is also the final month for visitors to enjoy a spectacular fireworks show in the second season of Jumana – Secret of the Desert, which draws to a close on May 31, said Du Plessis. – TradeArabia News Service
