SHARJAH, September 18, 2017

Work on Sharjah’s luxury and heritage hospitality property, Al Bait Hotel, is progressing as per schedule with more than 70 per cent of the project already completed, according to a report.

The first five-star luxury hotel on a heritage site in the UAE, Al Bait Hotel is being built by Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq).

It will feature 54 luxury guestrooms and suites, hotel facilities including five cafes and restaurants, among other amenities, reported state news agency Wam.

The hotel is also connected to one of the oldest marketplaces in the country, Souq Al Arsah, providing its guests with one-of-a-kind experience with one of the emirate's oldest suqs at their doorstep.

Al Bait Hotel, said to be the largest of its kind in the region, is being built at an investment of Dh100 million ($27.2 million), it stated.

The mega project will be completed by next year, said the report citing Sheikha Bodour bint Sultan Al Qasimi, the chairperson of Shurooq.

She was speaking after carrying out inspections across the authority’s latest authentic and luxury hospitality projects in Sharjah including Mleiha’s newly announced "Fossil Rock Lodge."

She was joined by Shurooq CEO Marwan bin Jassim Al Sarkal and COO Ahmed Obaid Al Qaseer.
