General Hotel Management has announced September 1, 2018 as the opening date of Al Bait Sharjah, a 53-key property that celebrates the heritage of Arabia and that will stand as GHM’s second property on the peninsula after the award-winning Chedi Muscat. Developed in partnership with Shurooq (the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority), Al Bait Sharjah is making its debut with a refined level of luxury, sophistication and personalised service never experienced before in the Emirate. As a critical building block in the region’s biggest restoration project, known as ‘Heart of Sharjah’, the opening of Al Bait is a keystone in the re-establishment of Sharjah as the cultural hub of the United Arab Emirates. Paying homage to traditional Sharjah architecture, the heritage resort is rooted to the restored foundations of vintage homes that once belonged to noted Emirati families. Al Bait, meaning ‘The Home’, is carefully remodelled and designed to provide world-class hospitality services and luxurious experiences to its guests, through elements that are in harmony with culture, society, history and civilisation as well as quintessential Emirati hospitality and etiquette.
“GHM has taken the lead in pioneering luxury hospitality in the Emirate, while connecting the modern traveller to Sharjah’s rich storied past,” said Patrick Moukarzel, the resort’s general manager. “We eagerly look forward to welcoming guests to Al Bait for an experience comparable to no other.”
Al Bait Sharjah is home to world-class gastronomy featuring Arabian and multi-cuisine restaurants as well as The Café where diners discover the only remaining circular wind tower in the UAE, while sipping Arabic coffee and indulging in authentic European pastries or traditional Emirate desserts. The Turkish-inspired Ice Cream Shop brings a characteristic charm, and flavours that are hard to find anywhere else in the region. The Spa stays true to the GHM wellness heritage and offers guests a delightful combination of luxurious indulgences to relax and rejuvenate.
