Shurooq reveals four large-scale hospitality development projects
A 60-key family retreat is planned for the 14km2 Seih Al Bardi Kabeer project - also home to 50,000 African animal species
The Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) has also announced four large-scale tourism and hospitality projects in Khorfakkan, Kalba, Al Dhaid, and Mleiha that will provide nature-inspired experiences in the emirate’s central and eastern regions.
This will include two five-star hotels at scenic locations in Sharjah’s eastern region – a 66-key property located along the Khorfakkan Beach, which will also include the city’s first waterpark, and another property adjacent to Kalba Waterfront, the major retail project being developed in phases by Shurooq and Eagle Hills.
Shurooq will also develop a 60-key experiential family retreat within the 14km2 Seih Al Bardi Kabeer safari park project currently being developed in the interiors of Al Dhaid. This is a first-of-its-kind hospitality offering set within a sprawling natural and wildlife reserve, which is expected to be home to 50,000 African animal species.
The fourth project, Moon Retreat, will be a new feature at the Mleiha Archaeological and Eco-tourism destination, which is expected to welcome guests by the end of 2020. This will be Shurooq’s second boutique hospitality offering in the Mleiha region with the first one being Mysk Al Faya Retreat, which is part of the Sharjah Collection.
Shurooq emphasised that its forthcoming initiatives will enhance industry performance and continue to drive foreign investments to the emirate. The robustness of Sharjah’s economy is also shaped by its exclusive range of competitive incentives, inclusive services, and facilities offered to investors.
Shurooq pointed out that more leisure, tourism, and hospitality projects will be announced later in Mleiha, Al Dhaid, and Khorfakkan, following the success of its ventures such as The Chedi Al Bait Sharjah; the eco-tourism and hospitality offerings under the Sharjah Collection brand; Khorfakkan Beach; and the Mleiha Archaeological and Eco-tourism destinations.
