Our companies are complimentary to each other in the tourism and hospitality industry and of course Alpha Tours has an excellent reputation and relationships in the Middle East to help Swiss-Belhotel International expand into one of the fastest growing areas in the world for the hotel and hospitality industry.

Swiss-Belhotel International is also associated with international hotel management schools in Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand and China. This ensures a source of well educated and trained hotel management executives and it is also the intention to bring international hotel management education to the Middle East.

Swiss-Belhotel International has already set up a Regional Office in Dubai with Alpha Tours and it is expected that within one year at least five hotel management contracts will be secured. Discussions are already being held with potential hotel owners and developers.
