Gulf Hotels Group (GHG), Bahrain’s leading home-grown hospitality provider, announced the soft opening of its first UAE property, The Gulf Court Hotel Business Bay. The opening is the first phase of GHG’s expansion plan across the region.
The four-star deluxe hotel offers a total of 270 rooms, including superior rooms to suites, which overlook the Dubai Water Canal. Gulf Court Hotel Business Bay boasts fine-dining restaurants alongside impressive lounges and a grand banquet hall. Other facilities include meeting rooms, a swimming pool, fitness center and spa. The hotel also has a nightclub and karaoke room for both in-house and public guests.
Located 15 minutes away from Dubai International Airport, the hotel will cater to both business and leisure travellers. Its location is in close proximity to the central commercial and business district, and lends itself for easy access to Dubai Mall, while facing the world’s tallest building – both of which are within two kilometres walk.
On August 1 2018, the hotel opened its doors to welcome its first guests. Abdulrahman Al Hujaylan and Khalid Al Hujaylan were welcomed by the Group’s Director of Operations, Nils Axing; the Hotel’s General Manager, Marc Voller; and members of the hotel’s management team.
Garfield Jones, Gulf Hotels Group CEO said, “It is another landmark day in the history of the Group. Since the opening of the Gulf Hotel Bahrain Convention & Spa back in 1969, the Group has been committed to delivering the highest standards of Bahraini hospitality. The opening of Gulf Court Hotel Business Bay is the first step of our regional expansion program, which will include Saudi Arabia and other GCC countries in the future.”
“We aim to deliver the same standard of hospitality, that has made Gulf Hotel an iconic property brand. We aim to provide all of our guests with a little taste of ‘home away from home.’
Jones further stated, “I am confident that with the guidance and expertise of our General Manager, Marc Voller, that the team will quickly establish an excellent reputation for the hotel within the UAE.”
Marc Voller, Gulf Court Hotel General Manager said,, “The opening of The Gulf Court Hotel Business Bay is a huge and exciting challenge for us. The property is fresh, friendly and trendy, and we will always aim to deliver what matters most to guests – quality, comfort and value for money.”
