Sharjah Grand Hotel is currently undergoing a complete refurbishment of the property, overseen by the Barceló Hotel Group to comply with the brand image of its Occidental range of hotels.
Situated along the coast, the hotel is conveniently located in a hospitality centric hotspot, minutes away from the iconic heart of Sharjah, and attractions such as Mega Mall and the Sharjah Aquarium. Its proximity to Sheikh Zayed road ensures further ease of access to Dubai Mall as well as the modern-esque La Mer and traditional Burj Downtown districts, along with other attractions in Dubai. Over its many years in operation, the hotel itself has gained recognition as a landmark, within the local and international leisure markets.
“We have placed great emphasis to revamp the iconic property, devoting numerous resources to ensure that the impeccable image and standards of the Occidental as a brand, falling under the umbrella of the Barceló Hotel Group, are adhered to, throughout the property,” shares Ahmad Shaban Fernandez, Vice President Sales & Marketing of Barceló Gulf, partner of Barceló Hotel Group in the Middle East.
The new design
Given its popularity within the local and international leisure markets, the hospitality provisions will only be elevated, after the renovation made to the design, facilities and amenities, with no disruption to current guest intake and experience.
Refurbishments to the existing lobby and the retail space can be expected, while the existing restaurants throughout the property, will be given a complete facelift, to incorporate a sleeker appeal and show cooking stations. Amongst these will be a dining facility located in close proximity to the beach and other recreational facilities. In addition to this, a brand new sports bar will be built from the ground up, to accommodate for the leisure requirements of sport fans in the city in future.
2019 will see guests luxuriating in the renovated rooms and suites, favouring open style, a fresh colour palette and an abundance of natural light, creating the desired relaxing ambience.
As compared to the existent opulent style of the property, the upgrade will see a fresh approach brought in, favouring calming white hues with bright blue accents serving to add a pop of colour to the décor scheme. Asides from the elegant appeal of the property, future guests can make the most of the beachfront location, courtesy of new decks and lounging spaces, with all day long access to the beach and a plethora of water sports to indulge to be enjoyed by both adults and children alike. The nearby dining venue will serve to cater to the culinary requirements of guests in the midst of their time spent enjoying the beach and other water sports.
