Nakheel, the 372-room prop­erty is a treat to both busi­ness and leisure trav­ellers. Hav­ing started off his ca­reer in the same brand in the UK, Gen­eral Man­ager Roudi

Soubra stated that a few ex­tra fa­cil­i­ties has been added to the prop­erty to com­ply with the poli­cies and reg­u­la­tions of the coun­try. “Ac­ces­si­bil­ity to the Expo area, Abu Dhabi and Jebel Ali do give us an edge over oth­ers; we are also the only mid-mar­ket prop­erty in the area,” Soubra said.

Ser­vice par ex­cel­lence

The mo­ment you en­ter, the wait­ing area is large enough for you to re­lax and hop into the cof­fee stop whist wait­ing for your turn. Right from the Gen­eral Man­ager to the front of­fice staff through to the se­cu­rity, the ho­tel ex­tends its ser­vices with a broad smile. Ef­fi­cient in its ser­vice ex­cel­lence, the staff has been trained to en­sure that all guests are at­tended to so well that the sec­ond time you visit, they will ad­dress guests by their name. Soubra shared, “We go that ex­tra mile to en­sure cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion and per­son­al­i­sa­tion; for in­stance, if a guest re­quests for soy milk and we don’t have it, we will go out and get it for the guest.”

Pass­port to per­son­al­i­sa­tion

To­day, travel has be­come a way of life for all ages. Mil­len­ni­als dare to be dif­fer­ent and take risks and ex­per­i­ment with any­thing that is seem­ingly new to them. As a whole, every trav­eller seeks a seam­less ex­pe­ri­ence. So­cial me­dia and the likes have gained pop­u­lar­ity due to the con­stant us­age of shar­ing ex­pe­ri­ences by mil­len­ni­als. The ho­tel’s mar­ket­ing team has cre­ated a pass­port which is given at the checkin point where trav­ellers can ben­e­fit from var­i­ous of­fers and dis­counts at dif­fer­ent places, shared Soubra.

Mix of oc­cu­pants

Be­ing con­nected to a mall and the metro are two pri­mary cri­te­ria for the GCC and res­i­dents from other emi­rates. Week­ends are there­fore, filled with lo­cals, GCC nationals and res­i­dents while the week­days wit­ness more of bleisure stays from the UK, In­dia, Ger­many, to name a few. Soubra shares, “Cur­rently, we are look­ing at 85 per cent oc­cu­pancy same as last year for the first half of the year.”
