Swiss-Belresort Ghantoot was recently unveiled by Gavin M Faull, Swiss-Belhotel International chairman and president. The refurbished resort’s architecture showcases golden walls, soaring domed ceilings and balconies.
The property is well-suited to families with activities such as water scooters, banana boats and donut boats, as well as a large swimming pool. The former palace also offers a health club with squash courts, along with gymnasium facilities, table tennis, billiards and rooms for steam, sauna and Jacuzzi.
Faull added: “Swiss-Belhotel International is in the midst of a period of growth in the Middle East, with three more hotels set to be launched before the end of next year. And our growing footprint there is matched by our global progress.”
The resort was joined by Swiss-Belhotel Seef in Bahrain, with Swiss-Belinn Ghurbrah in Oman, Swiss-Belhotel Riyadh in Saudi Arabia and Swiss-Belhotel Erbil in Iraq set to open by 2015 for a total of seven hotels. The Hong Kong-based company will unveil 20 hotels globally this year.
