Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 14 September 2009

Al Faisaliah Hotel and Hotel Al Khozamas Summer Training Programme came to a close on Sunday as fifteen Saudi students celebrated their graduation at Al Faisaliah Hotel, A Rosewood Hotel.

The programme brought qualified Saudi nationals studying tourism to Al Faisaliah Hotel and to Hotel Al Khozama for real world training and experience. Al Faisaliah and Al Khozama partnered with King Saud University to select candidates from the College of Tourism & Archaeology, and after extensive vetting and interviews, fifteen were chosen.

For two months, the trainees developed their skills working in the food and beverage department, rooms department and front office. The students were trained in the art of hotel management, learning everything from how to set up room service trolleys to butler responsibilities, all under the guidance of Rosewood staff.

To mark the successful conclusion of the programme, the students were treated to  Iftar in the Prince Sultan Grand Hall amidst Al Faisaliahs Fawanees Ramadan concept. Celebrations then moved to the Al Omsiat Ballroom, where the formal graduation ceremony took place.

It is with great pleasure that we award each of our trainees certificates of completion for their excellent work this summer at Al Faisaliah Hotel and Hotel Al Khozama, said Peter Finamore, Managing Director of Al Faisaliah Hotel and Hotel Al Khozama, Rosewood Hotels.

The group of students in our Summer Training Programme were extremely dedicated, disciplined, and motivated. They were able to put their theoretical knowledge into practice, and developed rapidly during the course of the programme. The Al Faisaliah and Al Khozama teams congratulate them on their success, and predict great things ahead for these hoteliers-in-training..
