The Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) has appointed Shaza Hotels to manage three retreats: Kingfisher Lodge in Kalba, Al Badayer Oasis in Al Badayer, and Al Faya Lodge in Mleiha.

These fall under the ‘Sharjah Collection’ brand by Shurooq, and will be operated and fall under the management of the Mysk by Shaza brand. These properties were previously set to be managed by South Africa's Mantis Hospitality, according to previous press statements.

The partnership with Shaza Hotels was revealed at the 53rd edition of ITB Berlin, under the Sharjah Pavilion led by the Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority (SCTDA).

The Sharjah Collection offers multiple experiences centred around the theme of conservation, and will include a natural retreat in Kingfisher Lodge, desert escapes with the Al Faya Lodge, or the Caravanserai in Al Badayer Oasis. This will be Shaza's first foray into Sharjah.
