Bringing 17 years of experience in the hospitality industry.

Sharjah (15/05/2021) - Since its inauguration in 2018, The Chedi Al Bait, Sharjah has rapidly built a robust reputation as one of the finest luxury hotels in the region. This renowned establishment's success was made possible through the contribution, savoir faire and dynamism of its team of dedicated individuals. As the hotel is expanding, new hires have been taking place and we are thrilled to be welcoming a new member within the managerial team.

With an outstanding 17 years of experience in hospitality and a wealth of strong hands-on prowess in the industry, Robert Nicolas Sahyouni will be leading our sales, marketing, revenue and reservations activities as the newly appointed Director of Salesand Marketing. As a Lebanese national born in the UAE, Robert studied and graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Business Administration in Salesand Marketing - an achievement that subsequently led him to pursue the path towards hospitality as his preferred route.

Robert started his career back in 2004 with Marriott International and kept his relentless passion for hospitality ever since. He stated: "Opportunities don't just happen - you create them. I'm proud to have become part of an establishment that fosters diversity, growth and hard work. It's everything I stand for and Im looking forward to bringing my contribution to the hotel in our continued rise to the top."

Hotel Manager, Nezha Aanou, shared: "It's an honour to welcome Robert as our new team member this month. It's an exciting time for us as the hotel was just recently named one of the winners of the 2021 Tripadvisor Travellers' Choice Award. It's undeniable that our success is a true reflection of the people involved and their devotion towards making this establishment the exclusive and exquisite hotel that it is today."
