Mafraq Gets Makeover

Hotel to undergo US$19 million expansion under new owners

ABU DHABI - Big plans are afoot at Mafraq Hotel. The four-star property, located close to Abu Dhabi International airport, is to undergo a full makeover in 2008, after been acquired by a local investment company.

Design development on the new US$19 million project has already begun and is expected to take 18 months for completion. The new developments will be implemented in three stages: construction of a new 115 rooms, four-star hotel, refurbishment of the hotel's existing 121 rooms to international standards, and the addition of commercial space linking the existing and new hotels.

"The Gulf and Middle East region is being increasingly targeted by international business developers and buyers" he said.

"Greater interest in the region from clients, more awareness of the region's attractive destinations, improved infrastructure, and high quality developments are some of the factors influencing the growth of business and making this region a treasure hunt area for business planners and developers," he remarked.
