Luxury Hotels by Dnata has three good reasons to
celebrate its first birthday this month, as a trio of top class hotels
joins its expanding portfolio.
The new signings are testimony to the
success that the division, which provides targeted sales, marketing and
PR solutions to high-end hotels aiming to increase their business from
the Middle East, has enjoyed since launching last March.
The Beach House in the Maldives, The Grand Hotel
du Lac in Switzerland and Le Royal Hotel in Beirut are the latest
five star additions to the company's portfolio.
Business Development Manager Lisa Balsom said she was confident
the division would continue to flourish as traditional markets
start to shift their focus onto winning Middle Eastern business.
"Luxury hotels are increasingly focusing on the Middle East as a
key target market for their business, "she said. "Especially as
the region is seen as less exposed to the economic crisis than
other areas of the world."
"This premise is
underlined by the fact that forward bookings for 2009 clearly show
demand for luxury travel remains strong across the Middle East.
"Not surprisingly, top class hotels are keen to tap
into this key, emerging market and this is where Luxury Hotels by
Dnata comes in."
Luxury Hotels by Dnata is part of
Dnata and the Emirates Group.
Luxury Hotels by Dnata portfolio includes: Abano Grand Hotel,
Italy; Indigo Pearl, Thailand; Ceylon Tea Trails, Sri Lanka; Royal
Mare Village, Greece; Le Royal, Beirut; The Beach House, Maldives;
Grand Hotel du Lac, Switzerland.
