Gulf Hotels Group opens its first hotel in Dubai bringing Bahraini hospitality to the UAE

Gulf Hotels Group (GHG), Bahrain’s leading home-grown hospitality provider, celebrated the official opening of its first UAE property, The Gulf Court Hotel Business Bay. The opening ceremony was held under the patronage of H.H. Dr. Sh. Ahmed bin Saif Al Nahyan, who was Vice -Chairman of Gulf Hotels Group in 1995/96 and Chairman from 1997 to 1999.

The 4 star Gulf Court Hotel Business Bay marks the first phase of the Group’s expansion plan across the region and is fully operational, forecasting an occupancy of 75% for the first 3 months of the year. The hotel brings affordable luxury and stylish accommodation options to the city. The staff values service excellence and treats every guest with care and dedication.

The property has 270 rooms, categorised between Standard Rooms, Superior Rooms, Deluxe Rooms, Grand Deluxe Rooms, Executive Suites, Luxury Suites and 2 Penthouse Suites. Guests can also enjoy Club Lounge/ benefits, business centre, swimming pool, gym, and a choice of six dining options that include Café Délices, Al Waha Restaurant, Naisa Oriental Restaurant, Sports On 4, The Canal Lounge, and The Other Office Karaoke.

Business travellers can take advantage of the meeting rooms that are equipped with state-of-the-art AV equipment.

On this occasion, Chairman of the Group, Mr. Farouk Almoayyed said: “GHG has been committed to delivering the highest standards of Bahraini hospitality since the opening of the Gulf Hotel Bahrain Convention & Spa back in 1969. Recognising a significant increase in demand in the MENA region, we believe this is the right time to launch our expansion plans. The Gulf Court Hotel Business Bay is the beginning of achieving our plans for regional expansion and is one of the latest additions to join the Group’s exclusive collection of unique properties.  Gulf Court Hotel Business Bay will not only offer guests every comfort, but also excellent value for money and the service will mirror the Group’s core philosophy of providing five star services for four star pricing”

Garfield Jones, Gulf Hotels Group CEO, said, “The opening of Gulf Court Hotel Business Bay represents the first step on the Group’s strategy to expand hospitality operations into the MENA region, and we are aiming to follow up the opening of the hotel with further expansion both in the UAE and neighbouring GCC countries. The Gulf Court Hotel offers visitors a true taste of Arabic hospitality that our hotels in Bahrain – the Gulf Hotel, The K Hotel and Asdal Gulf Inn – are renowned for. It also builds on the company’s reputation for delivering an excellent food, beverage and leisure product.”
