Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 6 May 2010

Dubai-based hospitality chain Coral Hotels & Resorts has opened its first hotel in Beirut, the Coral Suites Al Hamra. Owned by H.E. Sheikh Faisal bin Sultan Al Qassimi, the 100-room Coral Suites Al Hamra is located in the heart of Beirut, minutes away from the citys business and shopping districts.

Michel Noblet, CEO, HMH Hospitality Management Holdings, said, Beirut is booming and so is the hospitality industry in the city. We believe there is an enormous potential for our brand in Lebanon which is emerging as a leading tourism and business hub in the region. Our aim with Coral Suites Al Hamra is to offer an authentic local experience with modern luxuries that discerning travellers expect from world-class properties.

Of the 10 million visitors to the Middle East each year, the countries of Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon together represent over 40% of arrivals. More than 2 million tourists are predicted this summer alone.

Currently Coral has approximately 2300 rooms and is expected to add 1000 more by the end of 2010.
