Both hotels are highly successful, and although they are fundamentally similar, each has a unique identity and a set of unique selling points. The two properties combined will have an inventory of 454 keys and will be a major player in Abu Dhabi’s deluxe hotel apartment market. My mission is to maximise their full sales potential, find synergies that increase productivity, and share best practices that create lasting memories for our guests.”
