The ex­clu­sive group of ho­tels & re­sorts, GHM, added the ul­tra-lux­u­ri­ous Al Bait Shar­jah to their col­lec­tion in Jan­uary 2019. The new re­sort be­comes the first 5-star lux­ury hos­pi­tal­ity brand in the UAE built on and in­spired by rich Emi­rati her­itage and cul­ture. Lo­cated just 20 miles from Dubai along the south­ern coast of the Ara­bian Penin­sula and widely rec­og­nized as the cul­tural hub of the UAE, Shar­jah is brim­ming with 6,000 years of his­tory and cul­ture.

From cap­ti­vat­ing souqs and mu­se­ums to ma­jes­tic moun­tains and in­cred­i­ble coast­line, Shar­jah is a place yet to be dis­cov­ered by the in­ter­na­tional traveler for its cul­tural im­por­tance which brings to light the real Ara­bia. Newly emer­gent on the in­ter­na­tional art scene, Shar­jah is in the midst of an ex­cit­ing cul­tural re­nais­sance and is a des­ti­na­tion to watch. Al Bait, which trans­lates to ‘The Home’ is part of an Emi­rati con­ser­va­tion project in Shar­jah spear­headed by the Shar­jah In­vest­ment and De­vel­op­ment Author­ity (Shurooq). The ho­tel is the lat­est on GHM’s il­lus­tri­ous in­ter­na­tional list of hos­pi­tal­ity prop­er­ties and fea­tures a col­lec­tion of four her­itage houses once owned by lo­cal fam­i­lies closely in­ter­twined with Shar­jah’s his­tory. The five-star lux­ury re­sort is lo­cated in the Heart of Shar­jah – a ma­jor cul­tural her­itage site in the UAE.

Rais­ing the bar and pi­o­neer­ing lux­ury hos­pi­tal­ity in Shar­jah, the re­sort is set to put the des­ti­na­tion on the map. The bou­tique prop­erty, which is val­ued at AED 200 mil­lion, is home to 53 lux­ury rooms and suites, and a range of fa­cil­i­ties and ameni­ties in­clud­ing, an ar­ray of din­ing of­fer­ings in­spired by Mid­dle East­ern and Far East­ern cuisines, a lux­ury ham­mam, a he­li­pad for the ul­ti­mate ar­rival, a fleet of 2019 Mercedes and an iconic 1967 Mercedes Pull­man limou­sine.

The new lux­u­ri­ous prop­erty also fea­tures a mu­seum and a li­brary, with sto­ries and ar­chives on Shar­jah’s his­tory, and the his­tory of Al Midfa fam­ily and Al Na­boodah fam­ily, whom shared a sig­nif­i­cant in­flu­ence and pres­ence in the emi­rate of Shar­jah since the 1950s. The ho­tel is also con­nected to var­i­ous fa­cil­i­ties and hotspots in the Heart of Shar­jah projects, such as Souq Al Ar­sah and Souq Al Masqoof.
