Doha Real Estate Company Selects Bavaria Hotels to
Operate New Project in Sharjah, UAE

Dubai, June 2007:  Bavaria Hotels International Chief Executive Officer, Thomas H. F. Gertz, recently announced the signing of a contract to manage a new all-suite property in Sharjah for the Doha Real Estate Company.

“With two large-scale suite hotels already opening in Qatar and the UAE, Bavaria Hotels International is delighted to continue the trend of upscale all-suite hotels right here in the UAE” commented Mr Gertz.  “The Sharjah property will be managed under the Executive Suites brand, signifying a 5-star product in a strategically excellent location.”

The Bavaria Executive Suites brand of hotels represents full serviced luxury suite hotels for guests residing in a destination longer than the average traveller, or families who require fully equipped accommodation.  The concept design is focused on quality accommodation and guest support services, together with food and beverage facilities.  The first such property to open in the UAE will be Bavaria Executive Suites Dubai, scheduled to open during the last quarter of 2007 at Dubai Media City.  

Upon signing the deal, Mr. Nadir Badruddin, Chairman of Doha Real Estate Company commented: 

“There are a number of international and regional hotel operators offering management services, but we selected Bavaria Hotels International for its combination of European quality and hospitality expertise combined with an in-depth understanding of local cultures, as well as its flexibility to incorporate the individual identity and character of each of the properties it operates.   This is more than the management contract of a AED 500 million project, it is a partnership dedicated to providing the very best of services and facilities to our guests and to upholding the unique Arabian hospitality, combining tradition with modern hospitality.”
