Exceptional half year results have been announced for the Coral Beach Resort – Sharjah, with occupancy levels reaching an average of 90 per cent, according to Jean-Pierre Simon, Regional General Manager, Northern Emirates, Coral Hotels & Resorts.
“We are absolutely delighted to achieve these results,” he said. “Sharjah is growing in popularity as a tourist destination with arrivals at the airport up 13.6 per cent last year to reach 7.5 million, while hotel guest numbers rose eight per cent to top the 500,000 mark according to the Sharjah Commerce & Tourism Development Authority figures.
“Among these positive figures, the Coral Beach Resort – Sharjah stood out with occupancy levels in the first half of 2013 nearly 20 points above the average in the city while achieving the highest RevPAR (revenues per available room).”
Sharjah is successfully promoting its family friendly tourist environment to a wider audience, he added, with events such as the Sharjah Light Festival and the Sharjah Water Festival enhancing the city’s appeal.
“Our top five guest nationalities currently are Russian, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Europe/Germany and the GCC, but we see potential in new markets such as the Scandinavian countries, Switzerland and Uzbekistan with operators in these countries showing interest in developing links with Sharjah that will continue to boost visitor numbers.”
Mr Simon attributed the success of the resort to a winning combination of a beach location, superb facilities and a pro-active staff team that interacted well with guests.
“Our landscape is undoubtedly a unique selling point for us and the family friendly environment is another factor as well as excellent food and service, and plenty of activities for all the family.”
The Coral Beach Resort – Sharjah features 156 spacious rooms, many with panoramic sea-view. A major attraction is the wide repertoire of dining options with menus to cater to every taste. The resort is located on one of the emirate’s principal sand beaches and features a range of leisure activities for all ages, including the Rimal Club, state-of-the-art fitness centre, children’s pool, indoor playroom and complimentary Kid’s Club as well as Clark Francis Tennis Academy, badminton, volleyball and two outdoor swimming pools.
