On the occasion of its 14th year participating at the Arabian Travel Market, Hospitality Management Holding reflects on what was a hugely successful week for the Group with a series of significant announcements.
The highlights of the show for the group included the appointment of a new CEO, launch of a new luxury brand as well as the addition of a superb property in Port Sudan.
Mr. Brett Schafer, Chief Executive Officer of Faisal Holding, stated, “Mr ATM 2017 was notable for us as we enter a new phase of growth and expansion. We were delighted to welcome to our team Mr Aboudi Asali as the Chief Executive Officer of HMH. Following this key development, we successfully launched a new luxury 5-star brand ‘Bahi Hotels & Resorts’ that is a fantastic addition to our impressive portfolio of existing brands serving varied market segments. Consolidating our presence in Sudan, where we have three well-established hotels in operation, we added EWA Port Sudan Hotel & Apartments that is expected to open by Q4 2017.”

We believe quality service and standards are more than ever critical to a brand’s success and that’s the strength of our hotels. The typical customer staying at any hotel today is looking for a great value and an enhanced-stay experience and that is guaranteed at every hotel under our banner.”
