A busy start to 2012 topped off by 100 per cent occupancy during last month’s World Ophthalmology Congress is set to continue for the Liwa Executive Suites Managed by Coral Hotels & Resorts in Abu Dhabi, according to General Manager AmrHamed.
“With more major events taking place at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, including the Abu Dhabi International Book Fair, ISNR 2012 (International Security National and Resilience) and the Spring Show, we are confident that 2012 will be a stellar year for hotels in the capital,” he said.
“Significantly, the region’s premier meetings, events and business travel event – GIBTM – will also be hosted by ADNEC at the end of March, and this will reinforce the focus on Abu Dhabi as a prime commercial and conference centre.”
Figures bear out this confidence, with the number of hotel guest nights rising 22 per cent to 6.3 million in 2011, and a rise of 26 per cent in December alone.
At the start of 2012, this dramatic growth continued with an increase of 20 per cent in the number of guest nights in January,while revenues rose 11 per cent.
“With the launch of flights by Etihad from Abu Dhabi International to Shanghai this month, we can expect a boost from China while India, UK and other European markets continue to perform strongly – mainly those who are looking for suite style accommodation at value pricing,” added Mr Hamed.
The Liwa Executive Suites offers a convenient downtown location next to the City Terminal, and features 54 spacious suites plus every on-site convenience including business centre, meeting rooms, fitness centre and pool, 24-hour restaurant and café.
