Historic Sharjah hotel set for September opening
The Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) worked on the five-star heritage-inspired hotel
A Shurooq and General Hotel Management heritage-inspired hotel located in the largest historical preservation site in Sharjah, UAE, will open its doors on 1 September, 2018.
The five-star Al Bait resort is made up of restored houses once home to notable Emirati families and newly-built heritage-style guest homes.
It is located in the Heart of Sharjah, a huge historical preservation and restoration project set to be completed in 2025, which will lead the emirate's cultural tourism and hospital sector
Speaking about the development, the manager of Heart of Sharjah, Eng Khaled Deemas, said the five-star Al Bait hotel would enhance "Sharjah's position as a leading cultural tourism destination".
Al Bait, meaning home in Arabic, has been designed with elements that reflect traditional culture, architecture, design, history, and well-known Emirati hospitality.
It is General Hotel Management's second resort in the Middle East, its first being Chedi Muscat in Oman.
