Kong-based Swiss-Belhotel International has confirmed the Emirate of Sharjah as the location for the group's first property in the United Arab Emirates.
The property will be known as the Swiss-Belhotel Resort & Spa,
The new resort hotel is a result of a management agreement between a private high-profile
Sharjah investor and Swiss-Belhotel International. The hotel construction is expected to be completed within 22 months.
"We are delighted to have partnered with a local Emirati businessman in our first hotel venture in
Sharjah. Like Swiss-Belhotel International, he has confidence in the development of Sharjah as a
tourism destination and shares our enthusiasm to build a first class beachfront hotel offering the
highest levels of service. We envisage the hotel as a destination not only for tourists but also adding to the social infrastructure of the growing city." said Mr Gavin Faull, President,
In an effort to blend with the local environment, the property has been designed as a low-rise resort and spa located on Sharjah's
most popular beach nearby to the Sharjah-Ajman border.
Comprising a luxurious complex of villas and 350 guest rooms and suites, the 4-star property will boast extensive restaurant outlets, ballroom and meeting rooms, retail shops, as; well as first class health and recreation facilities including a large resort spa, outdoor
freshwater swimming pools, indoor squash courts, tennis courts and a fully equipped gymnasium.

Jacuzzi, pool and terrace.
Guests will be spoilt for choice with a variety of restaurants offering everything from Asian specialties to Seafood.
The planned leisure facilities will
feature several swimming pools (and poolside bars) including a kid's pool and a stretch of pristine sandy
white beach. Golfers will be able to enjoy the hotel's indoor golf simulator, while tennis players will be able to enjoy a game by day or in the
cool of night under flood lights.

will be able to visit the Spa and surrender to the intuitive touch of the international team of spa
therapists. The spa which will feature a juice bar will offer a variety of treatments including, facials, wraps and massages.
