General Hotel Management Ltd (GHM) has revealed that Al Bait Sharjah will open its doors on September 1, 2018. It will be the hospitality company's second resort in the Middle East after Chedi Muscat.

Developed in partnership with Shurooq (Sharjah Investment and Development Authority), Al Bait Sharjah is located in the emirate’s restoration project ‘Heart of Sharjah’. The opening of Al Bait, according to GHM, will "play a key role in re-establishing Sharjah as the cultural hub of the United Arab Emirates."

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, has been designed with elements that represent the region's culture, society, history and civilisation as well as Emirati hospitality and etiquette.
