Al Fahim in Fujairah expansion

Al Fahim Group and its specialist hotel and restaurant division Rmal Hospitality announced its expansion into the east coast emirate of Fujairah with a new luxury hotel development.

The latest development is in line with the Fujairah Tourism Bureau's plans to boost hospitality and promote the emirate as an attractive investment centre.

"We are committed to developing our property portfolio with a range of strategic investments in world-class brands and developments as well as supporting tourism initiatives in the UAE," said Anthony Liddiard, CEO of Rmal Hospitality.

"The Fujairah resort is our second luxury property and after conducting extensive feasibility studies we recognise this emirate will become a major hospitality epicentre in the Middle East."

The new luxury resort is being developed on a 132,000 square metre coastal plot, and will feature the latest amenities including Rmal Hospitality's signature restaurants, conference spaces and high-end spa facilities.

"We are in talks with exclusive international hotel operators and a major announcement will be made soon. We are confident of the appointment of the operator and the property will add a new dimension to the growing emirate of Fujairah," Liddiard said.

The new property is another success for the Al Fahim Group and Rmal Hospitality as it recently celebrated the structural completion of its first five-star property in Abu Dhabi.

Rmal Hospitality is a dedicated hotel and restaurant development business launched by the Al Fahim Group in 2007.

It represents a collaboration of selected brands within the Al Fahim Group's hotel and restaurant assets, which is supported by the local and international hospitality and experience of the senior management.

Rmal Hospitality's current restaurant franchise portfolio includes Frankie's, wagamama and Trader Vic's, which the company holds rights throughout the Gulf, Mena and China. As part of the company's expansion strategy, new brands will come online across the region in the near future.
