Bahrain-based hospitality firm Gulf Hotels Group (GHG) has announced the soft opening of a new luxury hotel in the UAE, The Gulf Court Hotel Business Bay – its first property in the region.
Though the hotel will target both the leisure and business travel demographic the proximity of Dubai International Airport, 15 minutes away, makes it an ideal spot for international event attendees seeking to fly in for a conference and then jet out once it’s over.
Indeed, the 270-room accommodation will be a welcome addition to the Middle East MICE landscape with four dedicated function rooms: the Manama Ballroom (144sqm), Muharraq (104sqm) Juffair (55sqm) and Seef (38sqm).
All are fully adaptable and can be arranged into board room, banquet, theatre, classroom and U-shape configurations. Other facilities include a swimming pool, fitness centre and spa.
“The first step of our regional expansion programme”
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.
