A new heritage resort offering a superior luxury, sophistication and personalised service will open in the UAE emirate of Sharjah on September 1.
Al Bait Sharjah, which celebrate Arabian heritage, is General Hotel Management’s (GHM) second resort in the Middle East and follows the success of the award-winning Chedi Muscat.
Developed in partnership with Shurooq (Sharjah Investment and Development Authority), Al Bait Sharjah is located in the region’s biggest restoration project known as ‘Heart of Sharjah’. The opening of Al Bait plays a key role in re-establishing Sharjah as the cultural hub of the UAE, a statement said.
Paying homage to traditional Sharjah architecture, the 53-key heritage resort is constructed from the restored foundations of vintage homes that once belonged to noted Emirati families. Al Bait, meaning home in Arabic, is carefully remodelled and designed to provide world-class hospitality services and luxurious experiences to its guests, through elements that are in harmony with culture, society, history and civilisation as well as quintessential Emirati hospitality and etiquette.
“GHM has taken the lead in pioneering luxury hospitality in the Emirate, while connecting the modern traveller to Sharjah’s rich storied past. We eagerly look forward to welcoming guests to Al Bait for an experience comparable to no other,” states Patrick Moukarzel, the resort’s general manager.
Al Bait Sharjah is home to world-class gastronomy featuring Arabian and multi-cuisine restaurants as well as The Café, where diners discover the only remaining circular wind tower in the UAE, while sipping Arabic coffee and indulging in authentic European pastries or traditional Emirate desserts. The Turkish-inspired Ice Cream Shop brings a characteristic charm, and flavours that are hard to find anywhere else in the region.
The Spa at the resort stays true to the GHM wellness heritage and offers guests a delightful combination of luxurious indulgences to relax and rejuvenate, it says.
